Decatur, Ala. (December 20, 2021) – The Alabama Bass Trail (ABT) and Alabama State Parks Division today announced a new partnership naming the parks system as presenting sponsor of the competitive team bass fishing trail in 2022.
“The Alabama Bass Trail loves venturing into Alabama’s wonderful state parks when hosting our events. The affordable and convenient housing options coupled with the excellent facilities make it so easy for our staff to have successful events. We are excited to partner with the Alabama State Parks to highlight these gems located throughout Alabama,” said ABT Program Director Kay Donaldson.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alabama State Parks (https://www.alapark.com/) will have a booth at all ABT events in 2022. The Alabama Bass Trail will feature Alabama State Parks on all tournament related advertising, website, social media channels and collateral materials.

From our initial support at Roland Cooper State Park to our sole sponsorship this year, we are pleased to play a supporting role in this growing tournament series. Our collective efforts support outdoor recreational tourism in Alabama, and we are proud to play a part in these economic engines,” said Director Greg Lein.
