Givhans Ferry State Park

Unique Features

  • Significant Features: The park’s riverbanks are protected as a Heritage Trust site because of several species of rare plants that live along the limestone bluffs.

    There are also sinkholes located on the park. This phenomenon is caused by underground streams eroding away the limestone.

  • Wildflowers: Wildflowers that can be viewed on the park include jack-in-the-pulpit, sundew and black-eyed susans. The best time to view wildflowers is late March to early April.
