On the sometimes-forgotten fringes of historic Southwest Georgia, the banks of the flooded Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers border the last remnants of a primitive longleaf wiregrass ecology at Seminole State Park where one hears nature’s beckoning call to wanderers to wet a hook, walk a trail, enjoy a boat ride, and watch a sunset.
This southwest Georgia park is on beautiful Lake Seminole, a 37,500 acre reservoir with excellent boating, fishing and birding. Cottages, many campsites and even picnic shelters sit near the water’s edge, offering excellent views and quick access to the lake. Because the park surrounds a small cove, visitors usually enjoy smooth water for skiing and tubing. A sand swimming beach is also provided for lake lovers.
Wildlife is abundant throughout Seminole, and a nature trail leads past gopher tortoise burrows and one of the largest longleaf pine forests in a Georgia state park. Observant visitors may also see alligators, osprey, bald eagles and other wildlife. Nearby wildlife management areas provide great duck and deer hunting.
