The other peak in the database "Oak Mountain" is part of the northern ridge line north of Shackleford Gap and is not the highest peak in Oak Mountain State Park. This peak south of Shackelford Gap is a few feet higher. At the summit there is a sign by the state park listing the summit as "Shackelford Peak Elevation 1286"

The nearest tallest neighbor is NE of this peak and NE of SR 38 as part of the Double Oak Mountain Range and the peaks exceed 1300 feet in that region. The lowest connecting gap along the ridge to the NE is at around elevation 660 as the ridge line is bisected by the "Big Narrows" thus, this state park highpoint has some decent prominence for Alabama at over 600 feet.
