Mountainous Desoto State Park is nestled atop beautiful Lookout Mountain in scenic Northeast Alabama and accented by many rushing waterfalls like Desoto Falls, Laurel Falls, Indian Falls, Lodge Falls, Lost Falls, and Azalea Cascade.
Developed in the late 1930s, the hard-working and dedicated men of the CCC made many natural enhancements to the park that have withstood the test of time and will last for future generations. Come commune with Mother Nature as DeSoto State Park offers a family-friendly atmosphere that holds wonders for people of all ages!
DeSoto State Park is conveniently located only 8 miles northeast of Fort Payne, Alabama; and DeSoto Falls – also part of DeSoto State Park – is located about 7 miles north of the park heading towards Mentone, Alabama. Please note, the smaller waterfalls are dry in the summer months depending on rainfall.
