Activities and Amenities
Cliffs and lush forests line the shore of Gainesville Lake. The waterway extends 234 miles from the Tennessee River to the junction of the Tombigbee River in Alabama and connects the nation's midsection of commercial water transportation with the Gulf of Mexico.
Families can make use of the playground and two game courts, as well as enjoy bird watching.
Anglers can try their luck along the shoreline or go off-shore in search of bass, catfish and crappie.
Additionally, hunters can seek out a diverse range of high quality habitats for upland game and waterfowl species at designated hunting areas on the Tenn-Tom lands.
There are 60 shaded campsites with electric and water hookups, picnic tables, fire rings with grills, pedestal grills and lantern posts. Nearly all campsites lie along the water.
Visitors have the convenience of hot showers, laundry facilities and picnic shelters as well.
Cochrane Campground is just minutes from Aliceville, Alabama, which has grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and attractions.
