Oct. 11 Report - Jones Lake State Park

Fall is a great time of year to visit Jones Lake. The cool mornings are ideal for cooking a campfire breakfast while camping. With 242 acres of water, test your fishing skills and hopefully land a yellow perch, chain pickerel or flier.

Leaves are starting to turn colors and fall from the persimmon trees, red maples and turkey oaks. If you feel like stretching your legs, take a hike to Salter’s Lake. During your hike, try to unveil the mysterious origin of the Carolina bays. You’ll soon discover Jones Lake State Park offers a vast array of wildlife and plants for any outdoor lover to enjoy.

Learn about carnivorous plants, Carolina Bay lake fishing or beginner bird watching at Jones Lake by attending our free general public programs. For more information, contact the park office by calling (910) 588-4550 or visit our website.
