Rock Quarry Landing Improvements

Rock Quarry Landing, located off of New Watermelon Road, serves as the southernmost landing to Lake Tuscaloosa. It provides one of the earliest opportunities for the community to access the nearly 6,000 acres of lake water.

Two docks at the landing will be replaced with a modern system that provides both easier access to the lake and safety improvements for boaters.
