Blackwater River State Park Description

Blackwater River boasts an incredible array of activities for the outdoor enthusiast, many centered around the park’s namesake waterway. Despite its name — Blackwater, or the original Oka-lusa (water black) in the Muscogee language — the Blackwater River is normally a transparent golden-brown when seen against the white sandbars. Most of the stream flows through undeveloped lands of the Blackwater State Forest and Blackwater River State Park, core areas of the largest contiguous longleaf pine/wiregrass ecosystem left in the world, one described as being rarer than a tropical rainforest.
