From the Altamaha River to the Satilla River, from Lake Grace to Boykin Lake, Wayne County's water supply is abundant.
The recently constructed James Boykin Lake in Bill Morris Park has been contoured specifically for fish breeding. Its 10-acre area is stocked with bream, bass and catfish and provides a habitat for ducks and other birds.
The Altamaha River, considered a natural and recreational treasure, is nearly essential for local fishers, boaters, campers and swimmers. In addition to teeming with wildlife, the river is also home to longleaf pine, colonies of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, gopher turtles, Alabama milk vine and other rare plants.
Lake grace is a popular spot for those looking to get away from it all and enjoy the relaxation of the countryside. It also is a place for fishing and swimming, and it includes a park area for picnickers.
A short section of the Satilla River runs through the county and offers many of the same sporting opportunities as the other water resources.
