Oak Mountain State Park

Changing leaves aren't just for New England. The Deep South has its own share of striking fall colors to view. One of the best places to see these colors is central Alabama's Oak Mountain State Park.

For just $3 per person, leaf peepers can enjoy a colorful fall weekend of hiking or camping in the park. The peak times to experience the bright colors are from late October into November.

Encompassing 9,940 acres, Oak Mountain State Park is the largest state park in the state and is home to the state's largest wildlife rehabilitation center.
