    You could try Oak Mtn State park, which will have the amenities you are looking for Oak Mountain State Park | Alapark . In addition, Lake Purdy used to be very family friendly: HOME | Lakepurdy (lakepurdyfishing.com). Both are in the Birmingham Metro area.

    Nearby, in Jasper, there is the Sipsey river area where you could also fish for trout as well as panfish, and even some stripers. You can call Brandon and Mary Carole at the little fly shop on the river, I bet they would let you fish on their property behind the shop .Contacts Riverside Fly Shop

    The Cahaba wildlife refuge is also a great place to fish, (Cahaba River just south of Birmingham), I remember one handicapped fishing platform on the refuge, but it is a little "wild" and away from any real amenities. I have done a lot of bank fishing in all of those areas in the past, I live down in the delta now, however, or I would try to meet up and take yall to some places.

    Hope this helps!
    Welcome from Alabama my friend. Lake Purdy is an awesome place to fish, especially by the Solar Bees but Bank fishing has been pretty poor. The only bank fishing area I know of is by the bait shop and in between the rental boats. I do not see areas around the bridge since they replaced it. That 280 traffic is a nightmare. LOL

    Thanks

    Yep. Probably one of the best in the US. 10 boat lanes 12 foot wide with lighted lanes, a huge pavilion, 3 other smaller pavilions, and can park 350 boat trailers in the parking lot with additional overflow parking.

    4 fishing docks and one courtesy dock at the ramp.

    Five dollars to launch or fifty dollars for a 12 month pass.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure if you meant you were headed to Birmingham, and need to know of places within an hour around the area, or if you were from Birmingham looking outside the metro area. I agree 280 is a bear! I used to live on 280, ugh.

    in any case, good luck!
