Comprised of large strands of vulnerable longleaf pine flatwoods, lakes and winding creeks, thick cypress domes and open vistas, Colt Creek State Park is home to many species of plant and animal. Some of our native residents include Bald Eagles, white-tailed deer, American alligators, otters and many birds and butterflies. Notably, we are home to threatened species such as the gopher tortoise and the Sherman’s fox squirrel.
Visitors can enjoy more than 15 miles of multi-use trails, shared by hikers, bicyclist and those riding horseback, that meander through the pine flatwoods and natural creeks and wetlands. Park lakes afford views of wading birds and alligators, as well as offers a place for anglers to cast their line from the lakes edge or from our 75 foot accessible dock.
