A prescribed burn is planned at Gulf State Park as part of a forest management plan associated with longleaf pine restoration, fuel reduction and invasive species control. The planned burn will take place in the Eagle Loop section of the park near Lake Shelby sometime between November 11-30, 2019, weather permitting. Every effort is being made to ensure safety and proper smoke management during this burn. However, park guests staying in the lakeside cabins can expect to experience some smoke from the fire. During the active burn period, access to the Eagle Loop area will be limited to only lakeside cabin guests. Additionally, Alabama Highway 135 (State Park Road) is closed due to construction and will remain closed during the burn. This prescribed burn complies with a permit from the Alabama Forestry Commission.
