USACE To Temporarily Close Jennings Ferry Campground
MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Black Warrior & Tombigbee Lakes recreation area will temporarily close the Jennings Ferry campground from March 5-19 due to the impacts of heavy rains on facility dump stations.
“Due to high waters we are not able to provide some of the amenities that our campers need, such as bathrooms and dump stations”, said David White, Park Ranger. Repairs to the facilities are tentatively scheduled for completion by March 19th.
While the Jennings Ferry campground will be closed at this time, the day-use area will remain open. Restrooms, however, will also remain closed as restoration of services impacted by the heavy rains continues.

The Black Warrior-Tombigbee Project Office is home to six beautiful lakes – Bankhead, Holt, Oliver, Warrior, Demopolis, and Coffeeville – stretching from the headwaters near Birmingham, south through Tuscaloosa, Demopolis and Coffeeville, Alabama. Part of the larger Black Warrior & Tombigbee Waterway system, the lakes serve commercial navigation and hydropower purposes, and its beautiful waters provide an abundance of recreational opportunities including boating, fishing, camping, hunting, hiking, and sightseeing.
