Pine and hardwood uplands with big, old trees characterize this park on the south shore of Lake Seminole. This lake is actually a reservoir created at the confluence of the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers, where they form the Apalachicola—the opposite shoreline lies in Georgia. Bird the Lakeside Trail which begins near the campground, as well as the Half Dry Creek Trail by the picnic area. In winter the pines around the recreation area attract Golden-crowned Kinglets and in some years, Pine Siskins are present. Check the slopes and ravines between the recreation area and the canoe launch for Winter Wrens. Brown Creeper and Red-breasted Nuthatch have both been recorded in the park as well. Fox Squirrels are regularly encountered along the campground access road. Scan the lake for rafts of wintering ducks; 17 species have been recorded. A pair of Bald Eagles nest in the park and Kentucky Warbler, Wood Thrush, Acadian Flycatcher and Yellow-throated Vireo can all be found in the spring and summer months.
Note: The campground and cabins have now re-opened for reservations following Hurricane Michael recovery efforts. While the park and campground are now open, long-term recovery efforts are still taking place at the park.
