Trap Pond is surrounded by bald cypress in the middle of Trap Pond State Park. It has abundant wildlife and exceptional recreation opportunities. The pond was created in the late 1700’s to power a sawmill used to harvest the area’s large bald cypress that was coveted for its rot-resistant wood. The par rents row boats, canoes, kayaks, surf bikes, and pedal boats and there is a strict no-wake policy, making it perfect for paddlers. The scenery is gorgeous as the lake is surrounded by thick woods and large freshwater wetlands. Fishermen will also enjoy the lake as it contains a large population of very large fish.
