MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District announced its campgrounds along the southern section of the Black Warrior-Tombigbee Waterway System will no longer take cash payments effective Jan. 1, 2019.

Credit or debit cards will be the only acceptable form of payment at the following BWT locations:

Focuse Creek Campground (Demopolis, Ala.)

Jennings Ferry Campground (Akron, Ala.)

Forkland Campground (Forkland, Ala.)

Service Park Campground (Silas, Ala.)

“Cashless operations will give our visitors a secure way to conduct financial transactions, reducing the potential for loss of funds,” said Jason Cassity, assistant site manager, Demopolis Site Office for the BWT Waterway Project.

This change will streamline financial transactions, provide a quicker process when refunds are necessary, and enhance overall recreation operations, said Cassity.

Persons, in previous years, who only paid with cash or by check, may also use pre-paid credit cards.

For reservations, call 1-877-444-6777, visit or stop by a campground gatehouse.

The BWT Waterway Project is home to six beautiful lakes: Bankhead, Coffeeville, Demopolis, Holt, Oliver, and Warrior. Visit for more information on BWT Lakes.
