The park encompasses 4,138 acres of timberland and hardwood bottomland where a variety of woodland birds can be seen. Cypress Creek and Tuscumbia River border the park and are known to host nesting bald eagles. There is a 70-foot fire tower. The flood plain, adjacent to the river and creek contains small oxbows and swampy areas which are a desirable habitat for waterfowl, wildlife, and fish. For additional locations, view flyer.
