Important News........................Leaders from Choctaw County and the State of Alabama have partnered in an agreement to re-open the park. We would like to thank the local county governments for working so closely with us as we have worked towards re-opening the park. These partnerships have allowed us to re-open 4 of the 5 parks that were closed in 2015.
Opened as a private spa in 1838, visitors to Bladon Springs traveled from all over the country to benefit from the "curing" properties of the park's four mineral wells. In 1846, a large Greek Revival hotle was built to accomodate the influx of visitors. This health resort was once called the "Saratoga of the South" and remianed open through the Civil War. The State of Alabama purchased the property in 1934 and converted the location to a state park.
Bladon Springs is open 7 days a week from 8am to sundown. If anyone has questions they can call the office of Choctaw County.
While the resort hotel is gone, visitors to Bladon Springs State Park can still refresh themselves in the tranquility of this rural location. Peace and quiet are hallmarks of this forested setting making it an excellent camping and wildlife viewing location. Birders will also love Bladon Springs, which is stop on Alabama’s Black Belt Birding Trail. Expect to see a wide variety of song birds, wood peckers and raptors.
