Lake Jackson is considered one of the cleanest and most clear bodies of water in Alabama.
The lake offers fishing, boating, swimming, and water skiing. A boat launch and piers provide access to the water for anglers hoping to land that big bass. There is a boat launch fee of $3 per boat.
When fishing on the lake, you can expect to catch largemouth bass and crappie.
Florala State Park is along the shoreline. Bird watchers are attracted to this lake because it is a stop on Alabama's Wiregrass birding trail. Waterfowl, song birds and raptors including osprey and Bald eagles are commonly spotted.
