The Kinlock Shelter is located inside the Bankhead National Forest, near the city of Double Springs, Alabama. It is best noted as a Native American cultural site and a rock shelter. It was named after an old plantation that was once located nearby years ago.

The Kinlock Shelter is also occasionally known as the Kinlock Antiquities. It is known to be the home of a Native American Winter Solstice sunrise ritual. This is traced through the fact that it was once used by the Yuchi Tribe, learned by experts through the rock carvings that denote a trance-inducing process and a celebration of the solar cycles. It was subsequently used by other tribes for the duration of the past thousands of years.
