Come Discover Why We Say
“It’s In Our Nature!”
Sprewell Bluff Park and the Flint River which runs through it, is a camper’s escape, a fisherman’s paradise, a paddler’s grand adventure, and a hiker’s dream. Visitors may escape the mundane and experience nature in comfort at the River Ridge Campground in one of the NEWLY ADDED cabins or campsites. Make sure to stop in at the Trading Post Gift Shop for a park map and a parking pass before hitting the trail or grab a souvenir and an ice cream before hitting the road. Visitors may cool off in the gently flowing Flint River, skip rocks across the water, and have a picnic along the river’s edge or by the NEW playground. With miles of trails winding throughout the park, visitors may take a long or short hike, run, or stroll. Bird watching enthusiasts may spot tanagers, warblers, osprey, woodpeckers, and eagles along the river or nesting in the cliffs and forest edge. There is also a recently added boat ramp making it a breeze for paddlers to access the river. The rare Shoal Bass calls this area of the Flint River and its rocky shoals home. These shoals allow fishermen to wade the river with ease, making this area of the Flint River for excellent fly fishing, and easy to take a swim in as well.
