Stevenson Town Park

Northeast Loop

Common Loon Description: Stevenson Town Park sits on the east side of Crow Creek. The park provides an excellent vantage to scan the open water of the reservoir for Common Loons and Horned Grebes, as well as a variety of waterfowl. During times of low water, look for shorebirds and herons hunting in the shallows. Just down the road from the park is historic Fort Harker. This Union fort was where General Ulysses S. Grant plotted his invasion of Stevenson. The fort now stands as a quiet reminder of an incredible time of turmoil. Birding can also be done at the fort.

Directions: From the intersection of US Hwy 72 and AL Hwy 279 in southern Scottsboro, AL, travel east on Hwy 72 for 19 miles to AL Hwy 117. Turn left onto Hwy 117 just south of Stevenson, AL. Drive 0.6 miles and turn left at the park sign.
