Goodale State Park

Goodale  State Park

Tall cypress trees that enchant the eye. A Civil War-era mill pond that abounds with wildlife. And a nature trail waiting to be explored.

N.R. Goodale State Park near Camden is home to these attractions and hidden surprises, such as a 3-mile cypress canoe trail that takes paddlers quickly back into a world they didn’t know existed so near to town.

A longtime community favorite, Goodale also offers shoreline fishing, canoe rentals, picnicking and hiking.
