Located on Lynches River, the 676-acre Lynches River County Park features a river swamp with towering cypress trees as well as sand hills offering a wide variety of vegetation. The Environmental Discovery Center provides plenty of activities including geocaching, and there is a swinging boardwalk out into the tree top canopy.
During the summer, the Splash Pad is a popular place to cool off. Sports can be played on the softball field and basketball court.
Popular activities at the park include canoeing, nature trails, picnicking, and geocaching. Three cabins are available for rent. The 12,000-square-foot community building can accommodate groups of 20-400 people. In addition to the air-conditioned community building, there are picnic shelters and a playground area.
