Welcome to Reed Bingham State Park
Visitors to this pretty park usually see abundant wildlife, including rare species such as gopher tortoises, spotted turtles, limpkins, moorhens and nesting bald eagles. Alligators are often seen sunning along the lake’s edge. During winter, thousands of “buzzards,” actually black and vultures and turkey vultures, roost in the trees and soar overhead. Nearly 80 percent of the Coastal Plain’s plant community can be found along the park’s Coastal Plain Nature Trail, making this park’s habitat some of the most diverse in the country. 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 who was instrumental in having the park established.
