Description

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, a wetland boardwalk 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.

Geography:

Seminole State Park’s terrain is relatively flat. The park’s forest, maintained through the practice of prescribed burns, keeps the undergrowth to a minimum. The longleaf pine/wiregrass ecosystem is home to gopher tortoises and an abundance of other wildlife.

The cove of water, located within the park, gives access to the larger waters of Lake Seminole. From the park’s shoreline, boaters are also only minutes away from the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers. Jim Woodruff Dam is also only a short boat ride away.
