Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park

Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park is a 4,000 acre preserve that offers a variety of things to do and see. With over 100 rare plant and animal species including the alligator snapping turtle, sweet pitcher plant, and Chapman's butterwart, this is an ideal spot for birdwatching, fishing, and Geo-seeking on the trails.

While at the preserve bring your pets and kids for a family day out. Have a picnic at their picnic pavilion, bring your bike for a ride on the mountain bike trail, or take a walk down the nature trail. Make a day of it with a day hike to Perdido Bay.

Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park also offers an interpretive exhibit to learn more about the preserve and its inhabitants, including the four species of endangered pitch plants and other rare or endangered plant species.
