State parks featured on Absolutely Alabama | Community Spirit
Fred Hunter highlights the beauty and history of Alabama's 22 state parks in tonight's Absolutely Alabama segment.
If you're interested in geocaching and enjoy exploring, there's an Alabama State Parks Geocaching Challenge that kicks off this weekend at the Lakepoint Resort State Park in Eufaula. The challenge will take participants to all 22 state parks and across 1,300 miles.
"Each cache will be kid friendly and have a first finders prize," the website says. Those who complete the entire challenge will receive a trackable geocaching coin as a prize. Visit www.alapark.com or call 1-800-ALAPARK for details.
Fred also visits Briarfield Ironworks Historical State Park, a historic site once used to produce iron during the Civil War era. The park offers rental cabins, outdoor pavilions and even a church available for weddings.
Tune tonight at 6 p.m. to catch Absolutely Alabama.
