Jackson Lake Island is a private island in Elmore County, Alabama. After production of the film ended, the set was initially abandoned, then partially renovated for use as a tourist attraction.
A few years after filming concluded, some buildings began to collapse. When the owners attempted to clear the debris, sparks caused a fire that went across the road and caught other buildings on fire. The "town's" commercial district was destroyed in the fire.
Visitors to the island can also pay a small fee to enter the island with a boat and fishing gear in order to fish in the freshwater lake.
