Welcome to our Tourism section! escape to the Lake...& return to the simple life for awhile...

Blessed by the unique geography of northeast Alabama, Cherokee County is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise four seasons of the year, with breathtaking scenery and natural wonders to explore.

Weiss Lake is the place to be on a warm summer day. Whatever your pleasure - fishing, boating, water skiing, jet skiing, camping, picnicking, sailing, swimming or just watching the water slowly lap the shoreline - you'll find it at Weiss Lake. For many years known as "The Crappie Capitol of the World" February through April and late Fall are the best times for Crappie fishing. The secret is out, we have great year-round Bass fishing. As a member of the Alabama Bass trail Tournament Series, we are now known for our big bass. Also, Catfish and Bream are popular fishing on Weiss Lake. Winter brings a gentle appearance for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful sunsets.

Lodging opportunities include motels, resorts, bed and breakfasts, cabins, camping and RV sites.

While Weiss Lake may be the centerpiece of Cherokee County, many other recreational activities can be found within minutes. Blow your own glass ornament, paddle the Terrapin, hike the trails and explore the natural adventures at Cherokee Rock Village, Little River National Preserve and Canyon Mouth Park Recreation Area, and The Pinhoti Trail. Visit historical Civil War sites, Cornwall Furnace, and others.

Cherokee County offers an unbeatable central location with easy access to some of north Alabama's best golf. The Cherokee Country Club's 18-hole course provides year-round play for golfers. With a balanced mix of tight fairways and enough water to create some intimidating tee shots, the challenging course will test each player's shot-making ability.
