Where Florida meets the southwest corner of Georgia, the Chattahoochee and Flint rivers converge to form Lake Seminole, the setting for this peaceful park. Hiking through forested hills of pine and mixed hardwoods, visitors might catch sight of fox squirrels, white-tailed deer, gray foxes, or many species of native and migratory birds. Anglers can launch from a boat ramp to enjoy some of the best freshwater fishing in the state, or fish from a 100-foot pier in the camping area. A shady picnic area, with tables and grills, overlooks the lake. For large gatherings, a picnic pavilion that seats up to 60 people is available for rental. Overnight visitors can stay in a full-facility campground next to the lake or enjoy the comforts of a modern cabin. Located two miles north of Sneads on State Road 271 (River Road).
Nature of the Area
Wildlife and bird viewing opportunities are bountiful at Three Rivers State Park! Bald Eagles make their nests within the park, and can be seen soaring over the lake. Waterfowl by the hundreds seek refuge in the quiet bays and sloughs that surround the park. Deer are a very common sight, along with the ubiquitous raccoon and our own population of eastern fox squirrels. These large squirrels are a sight to behold, with silvery white fur, often with a mask of black covering their faces. Many species of rare or uncommon plants can also be found throughout the park.
Annual Entrance Passes can be purchased at all park ranger stations and museums. If you require immediate use of your pass, this is the best option. Passes can be purchased during regular business hours 365 days a year. Please call the park in advance to ensure availability. Those who are eligible for discounted or free passes may use this method to receive their pass. Annual Entrance Passes may be purchased online by visiting the FLORIDA STATE PARKS ANNUALENTRANCE PASSES web page.

Three Rivers State Park borders on scenic Lake Seminole. The lake tends to be shallow in many areas, with considerable aquatic vegetation. Old tree stumps also are found throughout the lake. We find most of our seasoned boaters prefer shallow draft boats for these reasons.

Boat Ramp

There are two small boat ramps within the park, suitable for smaller watercraft. One ramp is located within the campground, for use by registered campers only. The other ramp is located close to the picnic area, for general use by park visitors. There are also two county-maintained boat ramps that will accommodate larger craft; one of these ramps is found on the eastern boundary of the park, the other is found on the western boundary of the park.
Lake Seminole provides an excellent venue for canoeing and kayaking. Aluminum canoes can be rented at the park for $12 per day. Life preservers and paddles are provided.
Fishing is a popular activity at the park since Lake Seminole is well-known for its yields. Largemouth and smallmouth bass, catfish, bluegill, speckled perch, and bream are some of the fish that might be landed by anglers. A Florida fresh water fishing license is required for persons 16 years of age or older.
