About: Visitors to this pretty park usually see abundant wildlife, including rare species such as gopher tortoises, spotted turtles, limpkins 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. Volunteers can assist with gopher tortoise research projects and numerous annual events. 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.
