Big Cypress Creek, Mimsville, Baker County

Big Cypress Creek, Mimsville, Baker County

Big Cypress Creek flows from a large cypress swamp in eastern Early County through Mimsville and eventually meets Little Cypress Creek, and then flows into the Flint River. Big Cypress Creek is considered a ‘wet-weather’ creek and only flows if we’ve had a rainy season. I visited during a drought year, as you can see it was very dry.

Sister Islands, Newton, Baker County

Sister Islands, Newton, Baker County

Sister Islands are two small islands located on the Flint River just south of Newton. They can be accessed by way of Barge Road, a one lane county dirt road which veers off of William Irvin Road (two lane county dirt). They can be seen much better from a boat in the Flint, however the islands are private. (Private Property)
