• River: Black Warrior River
• Length: 40 Miles
• Surface Area: 2,150 Acres
Oliver Lake is the smallest of six lakes formed by a series of locks and dams on the Black Warrior River near Tuscaloosa in west central (Metropolitan Region) Alabama. The Army Corps of Engineers manage two recreational facilities on Oliver Lake which include a boat launch ramp on the north side of the lake in Northport and a fishing pier on the south side in Tuscaloosa. Tuscaloosa County Park and Recreation Authority is managed by the City of Tuscaloosa. This area has two day use parks, a fishing pier and a boat ramp. Like most of Alabama's rural lakes, superb fishing awaits even the most novice angler.
Oliver Lake was formed by the construction of the William Bacon Oliver Dam in 1940. The dam was named for Alabama congressman William Bacon Oliver. The Lake is nine miles long with a surface area of nearly 800 acres. Lake recreation includes picnicking, boating, and fishing, and the bass fishing is reported to be outstanding.
