Lake Purdy is a 1,050 acre water reservoir for the City of Birmingham surrounded by 7,800 acres of wilderness for watershed protection.  No one lives on the Lake and no private boats are allowed on Lake Purdy.  This is a Water Board policy that has been in effect for over 50 years.  You can bring your own motor up to 10 horse power and rent our basic fishing boat for $20 a day. Or you can rent a motor boat, fully rigged bass boat or pontoon boat.  During the warmer months we also offer kayaks and paddle boards. We are currently open 6 days a week (closed Mondays) and are located only 20 minutes from downtown Birmingham, Alabama.
