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 lakes 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 Plains plant community can be found along the parks Coastal Plain Nature Trails, making this parks 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.
Due to the poor choices in trail hiking in the immediate area of Reed Bingham, this trail is exactly what the area has been lacking. the trails is always clean cut and clearly marked. excellent choice for an afternoon stroll through the South GA woods. I love going here after work and just enjoying the scenery and the trail provides great opportunities to stop and soak in the surroundings. the rest of the state park isn't much, but the nature trails are wonderful. Definitely a great way to introduce hiking to the younger generation without venturing too far from home.
Reed Bingham State Park is one of the best trails in southern Georgia,sadly it doesn't get the credit it is due. Every time I go to Reed Bingham I have a great time.Plus if you go at the right time of year ,thousands of buzzards are roosting there.
Excellent site. Great people. The camping was clean and well kept. The fishing was good though water was somewhat low due to recent drought. Tours were available by pontoon boat as well. The guides were knowledgeable and those eagles were majestic. Lots of birds, alligators, and a really interesting gopher turtle sanctuary.
