Water Ways

Calhoun County has so much outdoor recreation, and during a hot Alabama summer, we're glad to have these options to cool off.

Terrapin Creek, Choccolocco Creek & Willis Creek 
From Piedmont to Oxford, we've got choice to kayaking and tubbing. No Worries Kayaks can take care of you as you paddle Terrapin. Big Willis floats you alongside farm and rock. Coming soon, the City of Oxford will shuttle you to Cider Ridge, where you can float to Choccolocco Park. Floating Fun tubing is great for the whole family.

Neely Henry
From fishing to sailing, Neely Henry Dam creates an private oasis for anyone on boat and even has Ohatchee Beach.

City of Oxford, City of Jacksonville & City of Piedmont
From the City of Piedmont's Aquatics Center to Oxford Lake's swimming pool and splash pad, and including the Jacksonville Community Center Pool and Anniston's Splash Pad, there's summer fun for the whole family.

Cheaha State Park 
From their newly renovated swimming pool to Cheaha Lake and its beach, and the waterfalls at Devil's Den, Cheaha has more than trails and views.
