Lake Tuscaloosa In Alabama

Lake Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Boating, camping and fishing.

Better known for excellent boating than for catching bass, Lake Tuscaloosa can also surprise you with some excellent days on the water. Marinas, as well as public and private boat ramps, provide boating access and services to anglers and pleasure boaters alike. Canoes and kayaks can be launched at several locations around the lake from areas where shoreline fishing is also available. Water ski boats, jet skis and pontoon boats are all popular here. Alabama spotted bass are a treat here and often run in packs. This 5,900-acre reservoir located 5 miles north of Tuscaloosa in west-central Alabama has 177 miles of shoreline to explore. Catfish, crappie bluegill and sunfish also make Tuscaloosa Reservoir their home, and are available for catching.
