Lake Martin

Lake Martin, a shallow lake ringed with cypress trees and tupelo trees draped with Spanish moss, is home to one of the largest wading bird rookeries in the United States. From late February to late July, you can usually find little blue herons, barred and great horned owls, night-herons, roseate spoonbills, white ibis, and egrets along with plentiful alligators. At the lake there is a paved boat launch ramp and parking area for public use.
