Dominant tree species in the park include cedar elm, hickory, Osage orange, green ash, cottonwood, sycamore, and hackberry to name a few. Throughout the park, forest canopies shelter dense undergrowth vegetation of coralberry, dwarf palmetto, American beautyberry, possumhaw, yaupon, grapevine, Alabama supplejack, and the abundant Turk's cap with its beautiful red blooms.
