Newest Preserve

Jordan’s Journey

A day-use area along the shores of Lake Jordan. Lakeside land designed for hiking, fishing, walking, birding and spending time with family and friends.

Many of The Preserves feature pollinator plots designed to attract pollinators necessary for healthy and productive agricultural ecosystems. Bees are especially common pollinators, but butterflies, moths, beetles, flies, hummingbirds, lizards and bats are also common ones. Plants depend on them as does much of the food we eat.

Our work creates opportunity and economic prosperity for our state’s lake regions, but also seeks to preserve and protect Alabama’s natural resources.
The Preserves are undeveloped lands around our lakes and will remain in a natural state for generations to come. They feature hiking trails, picnic areas, fishing piers, playgrounds, boat launches and resting spots for everyone to enjoy. Our goal is to make the lakes open and inclusive and The Preserves open the water and activities around the lakes available to everyone.

Find one near you and enjoy. The water is calling.



As part of operating 14 hydro facilities along the Coosa, Tallapoosa and Black Warrior rivers, Alabama Power manages more than 3,500 miles of shoreline and 120,000 acres of land. Our team of shoreline managers works closely with communities surrounding the reservoirs to protect and enhance the scenic, recreational and environmental resources these lakes offer.
