Kristin Ebersol, Park Manager

Many recreational opportunities await you at Bald Point State Park. This unique park along Florida's Gulf coast is a nature lover’s paradise. The ancient maritime hammock at the park's North Point beach access and the birding boardwalk provided birders with excellent areas to observe migrating birds and waterfowl. The park has a fishing pier that extends out into the Ochlockonee Bay providing a great spot to pick up a flounder, red fish, trout or mullet. The three beach access points provide guests with access to some of the most undeveloped and scenic beaches the northern Gulf Coast has to offer. The park has five trail heads providing access to 20 miles of hiking trails, trail maps are available at trailhead kiosks.

Please remember that biting insects are found here year round, it is a good idea to bring insect repellent when you visit the park.

Prescribed fire is one of the many tools the park uses to manage the natural resources here at Bald Point, late Fall and Winter is prescribed fire season.  If you plan to visit the park and have smoke inhalation concerns, please call the office at 850-349-9146 or the Ranger Station at Ochlockonee River State Park 850-962-2771 to check the prescribed fire schedule.

We look forward to your visit!
