Reed Bingham State Park.
Description - This park surrounds a 375-acre lake that has become a major boating and water-skiing attraction in south Georgia. The Coastal Plains Nature Trail winds through a cypress swamp, pitcher plant bog, sandhill area and other habitats representative of southern Georgia. During summer, a butterfly and hummingbird garden is in full bloom. Watchful visitors may see waterfowl, the threatened gopher tortoise and indigo snake, and other creatures. Fishing and camping are also popular activities at Reed Bingham State Park.

This park is in the plains region of Georgia.

Recreation - Amenities offered at this park include a campground with 46 sites, picnic areas with shelters, four boat ramps, two nature trails, fishing docks and a playground. Fish species include bass, crappie, catfish and bream. Canoes and private boats are permitted on the lake. Annual events include an Easter egg hunt as well as fishing rodeos on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.

Climate - Georgia generally experiences mild, comfortable winters and warm to hot, humid summers. Be prepared for occasional cold weather during the winter, especially at the higher elevations in northern Georgia.

Report: 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.
