• River: Tombigbee River
• Surface Area: 10,000 Acres
• Length: 101 Miles
Demopolis Reservoir is a 10,000-acre reservoir located near the City of Demopolis in Marengo County. Demopolis Lake is downstream of the towns of Eutaw in Greene County on the Warrior River and Gainesville on the Tombigee River. This reservoir is the second largest lake in the Black Warrior-Tombigbee system. The lake extends 48 miles upriver on the Black Warrior River and 53 miles up the Tombigee River. There are modern campgrounds, many day use facilities, as well as primitive camping areas and numerous public access areas with bank and boat access to the tailwaters available on Demopolis Reservoir. There is also a large, full service marina at Demopolis.

The region around Demopolis Lake provides excellent hunting. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages 1400 acres for public hunting and leases another 6400 acres to the Alabama Department of Conservation for a state wildlife management area. Wildlife and forest management programs have enhanced the habitat in these areas and game is plentiful. Permits are required to hunt in both areas.

The holiday season begins each year with a week of special activities called "Christmas on the River." This annual Demopolis tradition is climaxed by a night time parade on the river which is viewed by huge crowds from the white bluff above the Tombigbee River. A spectacular display of fireworks illuminates the sky above a majestic procession of brightly lighted and brilliantly decorated floats on the water below. It's an extravaganza that homefolks and visitors await eagerly each year.
