A series of boat lanes meander through timber, marshes, and oxbow cutoffs making Millwood Lake a "tree-filled" fishing haven. Famous for bass tournaments, this 29,260-acre lake abounds in largemouth, catfish and crappie. Spring and fall offer anglers great crappie fishing here, and catfish and bream fishing in summer. Bird watching is another popular activity here because of the lake's variety of year-round inhabitants, and wintering eagles. Park facilities include 115 campsites (two Class AA, 110 Class B, and three Primitive) and one Rent-An-RV, picnic sites, a standard pavilion, self-guided nature trail, and bicycle trail.

Hiked this trail back in April when it was flooded. Was still able to do a hike but was not on the trail the majority of the time. Saw a bunch of snakes, if I remember correctly 4 different kinds. I THINK one was poisonous, but so hard to identify some of them as they look so similar. The other 3 were non-venomous. I guess there were so many because they were either displaced by the flooding, or all the water drew them out. So that was cool except worrying about stepping on one somewhere. Think it might have been a nice trail with the benches and stuff I saw around.

very peaceful, came across several deer, also a place to sit and relax by the water and watch the alligator.

I went to this trail this spring, and it was totally flooded. After Alligator Cove (about a mile in) the trail was completely engulfed by the lake. Still a beautiful park, and the shorter trail was really lovely!

Took my two boys (3 1/2 & 22 months) out for a getaway. Easy trail for the kids, and still fun for me. Lots of birds, and the kids had a ball.
