Description

Six miles west of Dadeville, down the wooded, rolling Young’s Ferry Road, hides a sandy beach cove known as D.A.R.E. Power Park that is dotted with shaded pavilions, picnic tables and open charcoal grills. Despite its seclusion, the park is a popular spot for locals and in-the-know passersby – both by vehicle and vessel – to take a break, stretch their legs and enjoy the serene nature that envelops the Lake Martin shoreline.

The park was developed in 1997 in cooperation with the local community and as a part of the Martin license. Alabama Power partnered with the Drug Awareness Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) programs for fourth-grade students at four Tallapoosa County schools on a contest to let students name the park.

The 30-acre park is one of the largest managed by Alabama Power and boasts a number of amenities, including a beach, boat launch, public restrooms, an amphitheater, grills, picnic tables, pavilions and docks.

Park Hours
9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
May 1 – Memorial Day: Open Saturday and Sunday only
Memorial Day – Labor Day: Open daily
