This jewel of a park is a great place to get away for 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. Pristine and deep, the river empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Trails allow visitors to explore the park and see the diverse wildlife, including the red-cockaded woodpecker, 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. Youth group camping is also available.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
November 21 Mr. Charles, your Park Host by Lee Anne and Cory Wonsey
Our stay the past few days certainly was relaxing. Mr. Charles welcomed us with a warm heart and a nice smile to,begin our day. Due to the after-hours phone remaining unanswered, my husband had to spend the night in the truck at the closed gate. Moral of this is make sure you pack the blankets.

March 23 White Deer and White Squarrells by Trekinnon
We went to this campsite 4 years ago and saw the white squirrels - these are not albino squirrels and saw a picture of the white deer - again not albino deer. The park is beautiful and very quiet
