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.

Love this trail! Today there was a tree down and we didn’t go past it to do the full 4.7 miles, but great nonetheless!

An awesome underutilized resource in our local area. The paths are wide, trails are well marked, and the scenery is pleasant. If you enjoy running or are looking for a moderate distance for an easy hike, Reed Bingham is an excellent choice for SouthWestern Georgia. One note: Do t forget the bug spray.

Fun little morning jog. If you go backwards (bird walk trail first) there’s a nice down hill boardwalk section near the end of the loop.

As of April 16, 2019, all trails were open. I hiked the BirdwalkTrail out and returned on the Little River Trail which was 2.5 miles total. The trail surface is a mix of sandy soil, boardwalk, and small gravel path. Very easy to navigate. Trails were well marked. I’d rank it as easy due to lack of incline.

trail closed about halfway thru due to hurricane damage. Nice enjoyable trail.

Very easy and well maintained trail. The elevated walkways let you get a close view of the wetlands. We did encounter a timber rattlesnake sunning on the walkway and were unable to get around it. It was cool to see but be aware. We will hike this trail again.

This is a moderate trail due to the many areas that have exposed roots that you must be careful of. The trail is mainly hard packed soil with about a third of it being a boardwalk over swampy areas. The trail follows the Little River in places. The trail is very kid friendly and offers many wildlife viewing opportunities.

Trails are all maintained and all around great for hiking, trail running, and mountain biking.

I'm so thankful that there is somewhere close to where I reside that I can visit for a bit of outdoor fresh air. I've encountered so much wildlife. Wish there were more state parks like this one close by.

beautiful mature forest with coastal plain flora and fauna... gentle topography... could use twice as many miles of mountain biking in the area... bring a boat for river and lake paddling as well... best of south GA

This was a great park, with a lot of easy to follow trails, but I wish the trail paths were more consistent! Nevertheless, this was a wonderful place to spend a morning!!! Highly recommend!

great beginning mountain bike trail or would be a great hiking trail for grandkids

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.
