Cricket Frog Pond
 

The Cricket Frog Pond is home to the endangered Blanchard Cricket Frog, thus the pond's name. Many other types of frogs and fish co-habit this eco-system including large mouth bass, blue gill, catfish and amur - a sterile grass eating fish. No chemicals are used to maintain this balanced environment. A large variety of milkweed, orchids, iron root and cattails surround the pond providing food and shelter for 1,000’s of butterflies and bees to be observed. Three tree covered islands that are partially submerged during the wet seasons provide home to assorted birds including blue birds, swallows, owls, red-winged blackbirds and finches. The pond is a popular spot for primitive camping and canoeing as well as catch-and-release fishing.
