Located only 70 miles from Calhoun County, Buck’s Pocket state park offers the outdoor enthusiast a plethora of outdoor activities to immerse oneself in.

The park is located in three counties, DeKalb, Jackson and Marshall, and features a large canyon rivaling the one at nearby Little River Canyon. The canyon itself is an upstream tributary of Lake Guntersville.
