The Dead Lakes Park includes a boat ramp that gives you access to the Dead Lakes. At this point, the boat ramp area is the only attraction accessible due to damage from Hurricane Michael. This area features are bathrooms, showers, and grills.
Rediscover your sense of adventure with either a kayak or a boat trip in the Dead Lakes! The Dead Lakes reportedly formed when sand bars created by the Apalachicola River's current blocked the Chipola River. The ensuing high water killed thousands of trees in the floodplain, leaving a graveyard of bottom-heavy cypress skeletons, stumps, and knees.
