Ochlockonee River State Park

Description

This jewel of a park is a great place to get away for a few hours on a weekend or a weeklong vacation. Picnic facilities and a swimming area are located near the scenic point where the Ochlockonee and Dead Rivers intersect. Ochlockonee, which means "yellow waters" is a mix of brackish, tidal surge, and fresh water. Wild and deep, the river empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Trails allow visitors to explore the park and view the diverse wildlife including Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers, White Squirrels, and natural communities such as Pine flatwoods and oak thickets. A boat ramp provides easy access to the river. Both freshwater and saltwater fish inhabit the waters around the park, including Largemouth Bass, Bream, Catfish, and Speckled Perch. For overnight visitors there are full-facility campsites with access to restrooms and showers.
