Description

Reservations (800) 864-7275
Park (229) 896-3551

Visitors to this scenic park will see an abundance of wildlife, particularly gopher tortoises and “buzzards.” During winter, thousands of these large birds, which are actually black vultures and turkey vultures, roost in the trees and soar overhead. Throughout the year, gopher tortoises may be seen digging their dens in the sandy soil. Alligators, bald eagles, the rare limpkin, herons, indigo snakes and many other species also live in this protected park. Two nature trails wind through a cypress swamp and sandhill area, habitats which are representative of southern Georgia. A 375-acre lake is popular with boaters and skiers, and fishing for bass, crappie, catfish and bream is excellent. Reed Bingham is less than six miles from I-75, making it a relaxing stop for travelers. It was named for Amos Reed Bingham, a local citizen who was instrumental in having the park established.
