Alabama State Parks staff, Wilcox County Commissioners and Camden City Council members are joining together this week to prepare for the reopening of Roland Cooper State Park.

Before RRM has the grand opening in early September, the park requires cleanup, tree removal and removal of equipment. the leadership and elected officials of Wilcox Count and the city of Camden have stepped up to assist in cleaning up the park by approving work necessary for the cleanup to have Roland Cooper ready for guests this fall.
