Reed Bingham State Park in Adel, Georgia was named for Amos Reed Bingham who envisioned the creation of a dam to generate electricity to the rural community. The park became a reality in 1958 when Cook and Colquitt counties bought the land and deeded it to the state. The 375 acre lake is popular with boaters, skiers and fishing for bass, crappie and catfish.
This park's habitat has some of the most diverse in the country with nesting bald eagles, alligators sunning along the lake's edge and gopher tortoises.
We camped here in March 2019 on our way home to Georgia from Florida. We enjoyed the hikes and seeing the homes of the gopher tortoises. The campground is in two loops. The older loop with water and electric and the new loop has sewer hookups.
