The DeSoto State Park is a state park and recreation area in Fort Payne, Alabama. It is one of the most popular units in the Alabama state parks system offering stunning natural sceneries and a wide array of recreational opportunities.

Developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, the DeSoto State Park was named after Hernando de Soto, a Spanish explorer and conquistador who was also the first European to document and cross the Mississippi River. The park covers more than 3000 acres of area, containing waterfalls, forests, rivers, and a spectacular mountain terrain. Several structures like a lodge, cabins, chalets, restaurants, tennis courts, swimming pool, campsites, picnic area, and hiking trails are also offered to the public for their further enjoyment.
