Tourism

Hunting & Fishing

Conecuh County is one of the pristine hunting destinations in the Southeastern USA.  With an abundance of hunting lodges and wilderness lands, bagging a Whitetail Deer or two is common during the hunting season.   Eastern Wild Turkey and Bobwhite Quail are abundant in the County and offer multiple seasons of outdoor adventure.  Other hunting ventures include feral hogs and a variety of small game, some of the most popular with local hunters.  For more information, please visit Outdoor Alabama, the Alabama Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, or the Alabama Deer Association.

There are several interesting places for the avid fisherman to snag largemouth bass, catfish, crappie and bream. The Sepulga River provides access with 5 different boat landings in the County. The County Lake is a 20-acre lake that offers public fishing in various areas on the grounds.

Murder Creek is a small destination that can pay big dividends for those willing to trek into more remote locations – a true wilderness adventure!

The Sepulga River Canoe Trail

The Sepulga River Canoe Trail is becoming increasingly popular with nature lovers in Alabama.  With deep water, lime stone walls and a few rapids for fun, Sepulga offers a wilderness kayaking/canoe experience unique to South Alabama.  Keep your eyes peeled for an alligator or two sunning on the rocks.  Visit Alabama Scenic River Trail  or Trails.com for more information.

Booker’s Mill

Booker's Mill is known for both its historical value and scenic beauty. The mill, built in the 1800s by prison workers, provided electricity to the neighborhood. It has long been closed as an electricity generating plant. The land and the building now give the Conecuh County residents and visitors a peaceful retreat offering a taste of the past in an award winning setting.

On the property was once located a water wheel, stone gristmill, and one of the first cotton gins in Conecuh County. The gristmill and cotton gin were destroyed by fire. There are many other attractions both old and new to enjoy on the 250 acre property. The old general store that once was the hub of the community has now been converted into a meeting hall and museum that houses artifacts, Indian relics, and primitive tools.

The property is privately owned and open to the public. The restoration has earned the owners awards from the Alabama Forestry Commission, including the Helen Mosley Memorial Award given by the state for aesthetic beauty.

Annual Community Events

Evergreen boasts three standing annual events, all of which are perfect family outings. Evergreen is known for its annual Evergreen Sausage Festival, which celebrates all things sausage every fall and showcases our local sausage factory, Conecuh Sausage. Castleberry, the Strawberry Capital of Alabama, hosts the annual Strawberry Festival, and aviation enthusiasts as well as novices are drawn to the South East Regional Fly-In (serfi.org) every year.
