A true hit with families visiting the area, the Tickfaw State Park Water Playground is home to water slides, splash pools, and tubing facilities. Since it's the perfect place to cool off, the park is very popular during the summer so be sure to arrive early to claim your spot.
Birders have the chance to spot egrets, herons, and pelicans around the water, with vultures, hawks, and kestrels seen further inland. The hiking trails in the park provide countless chances for other wildlife too, including American alligators, North American beavers, white-tailed deer, and much more.
With a range of educational programs designed to teach vacationers about the natural history and culture of the park, the Nature Center is great for rainy days. Visitors can see the wonderful 800-gallon aquarium, plus a range of animal displays.
