This peaceful park is situated at the confluence of the Ochlockonee
and Dead rivers and Big Tide Creek, 10 miles from the Gulf coast in
the panhandle. Longleaf pine flatwoods, oak thickets, marshes, and
tidal river and creek provide productive birding. Rent a
canoe for a quiet paddle through tidal creeks.
Easy walking trails through the pine flatwoods pass close by
red-cockaded woodpecker cavity trees, which are marked with white
bands. Additional wildlife such as fox squirrel, bobcat, deer, gray
fox and numerous species of birds can be observed while hiking or
canoeing in this 392-acre park.
