Bald Point State Park

Bald Point State Park gets its name from the bald eagle, which can be seen migrating south along with other birds and wildlife.

A Bald Eagle has just swooped down and caught a fish for lunch.

If you’re a nature lover or enjoy bird watching, bring your binoculars and cameras. Bald Point State Park is a great destination with a lot of tree life and many species of birds here.

There are many hiking or bike riding trails to explore the beauty of the park, and the beach offers a quiet escape if you enjoy the sun and water.

Bring along a picnic for lunch or dinner and enjoy the scenery from one of the quaint pavilions. You could also take a lesson from the bald eagle and swoop up a fish with your hands (but we wouldn't advise it).
