• River: Black Warrior River
• Surface Area: 9,200 Acres
• Length: 65 Miles
Bankhead Reservoir contains 9,200 acres and is the second largest lake on the Warrior River. Located approximately 15 miles west of Birmingham and 30 miles northeast of Tuscaloosa, Bankhead Reservoir flows through Walker, Jefferson and Tuscaloosa Counties. The primary uses for this reservoir are navigation, hydroelectric generation, flood control, and recreation. Development of shoreline property is extensive and includes private residences and commercial marinas. Camping, boating and fishing provide the main recreational opportunities on this reservoir.

Several marinas and fish camps provide boat docking and storage, fueling facilities, launching ramps, restaurants, groceries, bait, and supplies. Five public facility use areas and fourteen user fee areas are located on Bankhead Reservoir. Nearby, for hunting, is the Mulberry Fork Wildlife Management Area (WMA). This is leased land available for hunting that is managed by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. A Mulberry Fork WMA permit, a WMA license, and the regular hunting license are required to hunt the Management Area.
