WILMER, Ala. — The Mobile County Commission approved the purchase of the Escatawpa Hollow Campground for $715,000 at its meeting Mon., Jan. 28. The 45-acre campground is located on the Alabama/Mississippi state line off Moffett Road, on the south side of U.S. 98. Plans are to improve the campground to add more camp sites, walking trails, river access and other features.

The purchase will be funded through Mobile County’s Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act (GOMESA) Public Access Acquisition Project. The money is generated from federal oil and gas leases in Alabama’s offshore waters. GOMESA funds are authorized for coastal protection, conservation, restoration and hurricane protection, as well as mitigation of damage to fish, wildlife or natural resources.
