Things to Do and Places to See

Bald Point State Park

The park offers kayak launch sites, hiking and biking trails, park ranger guided tours, swimming, fishing, nature trails, observation decks over salt marshes, abundant wildlife and excellent world-class bird watching. The Bald Point State Park is a day-use only area, so there are NO overnight campers which insures privacy. Bald Point is a protected nesting site of sea turtles.

Tucker Lake Rainbow kayakBald Point State Park also offers access to two Apalachee Bay beaches for swimming, sunbathing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and windsurfing.  Facilities include a fishing dock and picnic pavilions.

Coastal marshes, pine flat woods, and oak thickets foster a diversity of biological communities that make the park a popular destination for birding and wildlife viewing. Each fall, bald eagles and other migrating raptors, along with monarch butterflies, are commonly seen heading south for the winter.
