Seminole State Park

This Is Probably One Of The Best Sited Of The State Parks In Georgia

Seminole State Park is located in Seminole County, Georgia which is the most south-westerly county in the state and stands right on the border with Florida. The county is named after the Seminole Native Americans who lived in that area.

The park is in a wonderful position as it sits on the banks of Lake Seminole, a 37,500 acre reservoir with a 376 mile shoreline.

The lake was formed by the construction of a mile long earthen dam which was completed in 1952.

Named the Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam it contains the waters of the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers and the Spring Creek which all join together just north of the dam. The outflow from the lake is known as the Apalachicola River.
