The convergence of Ochlockonee Bay & Apalachee Bay produces diverse habitats and makes it an excellent vantage point for fall and spring migrations of birds and butterflies. Bald Point is also an outstanding observation point for year-round wildlife residents such as black bear, white-tailed deer, coyotes, bobcats and hosts of resident birds. The day-use facilities at the park include picnic pavilions, restrooms and a fishing dock.

Here you can walk miles without passing another person, cast a rod, catch shrimp, enjoy sunsets, collect shells or just gather your thoughts. The absence of noise and glaring lights makes for prime relaxation and exquisite stargazing.
