After leaving Mississippi, we crossed over into Alabama on US 80. Foscue Creek is a Corp of Engineers Park. This is the best COE park we have stayed at. Plenty of space between large paved sites, full utility hookup, paved roads and water inlet from the Tombigbee River. A few sites are on the river edge where barge traffic is seen every day. The Lock and Dam is part of the COE property.
We planned to stay eight days but cut it short after four days. On Sunday, we were going to drive to Selma, Alabama and the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge where Bloody Sunday occurred in 1965.
The ice storm and very cold temperatures were forecast for Mississippi, about 60 miles west. We left on Sunday morning for a 400 mile drive back to Tennessee where the forecast was much better. It's cold here in Tennessee at 25 degrees, much better than 0 or lower in Mississippi. We will be in Tennessee through March, then head to Indiana for about three months. We plan on going west in June, barring any problems.
|The campground was not empty at all at least until we left early.
|The entire park was large and had many Cypress trees with the usual moss.
|The Coast Guard has a station located in the inlet off of the Tombigbee river.
