Buck's Pocket is the legendary place in Alabama where politicians go to nurse their wounds following a losing campaign.
But now Buck's Pocket is now or one of northeast Alabama's prime state parks - "A Nature Lover's Dream" covering 2,000 acres.
The park itself is located in a narrow gorge through which South Sandy Creek flows in Sand Mountain.
The park offers visitors hiking, camping, hiking and fishing.
There are 36 campsites and you can also rent an RV unit inside the park if you do not have your own but want to spend some days and nights there. The campsites include typical tables, grills, shelters, laundry, bathrooms, showers and playground for the children.
Point Rock Trail is the main hiking trail in the park and takes one from the floor of the canyon up to an overlook, crossing Little Sauty Creek. The overlook gives visitors a few down the canyon from which they have just hiked.
Another trail is the Primitive Campground Trail that follows along Lilttle Sauty Creek and of the two is probably the easiest walk.
A boat launch and fishing area are located seven miles downstream at Morgan's Cove on beautiful Lake Guntersville.
