Reed Bingham State Park

Added by camprate admin

1 review

This park surrounds a 375-acre lake that has become a major boating and waterskiing attraction in south Georgia. Fishing for bass, crappie, catfish and bream is excellent. The Coastal Plain Nature Trail and Gopher Tortoise Nature Trail wind through a cypress swamp, sandhill area and other habitats representative of southern Georgia. Watchful visitors may see waterfowl, the threatened gopher tortoise and indigo snake, and other creatures. However, the park’s most famous residents are the thousands of black vultures and turkey vultures that arrive in late November and stay through early April, making this park the largest winter vulture roost in Georgia. Reed Bingham is less than six miles from I-75, making it a relaxing stop for travelers.

The park grounds are very nice. Unfortunately the park management/law enforcement blatantly dislike tent campers. Our family reunion group of 20 was harrassed for 2 days and forced out of the park for an alleged violation of park rules. Too bad officers Powell and Hart did not follow any of the accepted procedures required of law enforcement before asking us to leave. Bring an attorney with you if you go here -- you'll likely need one. Powell and Hart have been officially reprimanded by the regional supervisor for their improper actions. Don't bother. There are many nicer parks to visit without all the hassles.
