Daily, sunrise to sundown


If you’re in the area visiting Ochlockonee River State Park, check out this small city park on the Sopchoppy River. Walk the boardwalk and look carefully for Barred Owls, Yellow-crowned Night-herons and Prothonotary Warblers (summer). Hike the short trail to the left side of the property to see Summer Tanager, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, White-eyed Vireo and Yellow-billed Cuckoos in spring and summer, as well as Mississippi and Swallow-tailed Kites circling overhead. Resident Eastern Bluebirds can be found around the picnic area and in winter Chipping Sparrows and Eastern Phoebes are present. This site has a busy boat launch (weekends); paddlers can launch a canoe or kayak from this spot to explore the river more extensively.
