FALL COLOR IN DESOTO STATE PARK
Alabama is beautiful throughout the year but especially in the fall. As the greens of summer surrender to glittering yellow poplars, scarlet dogwoods, orange maples and golden hickories, Alabama unfolds its patchwork quilt of color.
In North Alabama the highlands transform into a bright sea of yellow poplars, scarlet dogwoods, orange maples, and golden hickories. Autumn-blooming wildflowers carpet the landscape around every corner.
Fall is our busiest time of year, so be sure to make your reservations for our motel rooms, Log or Rustic cabins, Chalets, & Campsites well in advance.
