Three Rivers State Park got its name from the three rivers associated with it: the Flint and Chattahoochee Rivers that feed into Lake Seminole and the Apalachicola River that flows out of the lake. That means boating, canoeing, kayaking and some of the best fresh water fishing in Florida (there's a boat ramp and a fishing pier). The picnic area offers shady sites with tables and grills, the running water and restrooms are close by. Hikers can enjoy the journey on marked trails through the pine and hardwood forest that covers these hills around Lake Seminole.

Three Rivers State Park offers 30 campsites and one cabin for rent (a loft, one bedroom, one bathroom, dining room, living room, kitchenette, fireplace and screened porch), built right on the shore of Lake Seminole. There is also a primitive-style youth/group camping area that can be divided in half with restrooms in between.

Day use hours run from 8 am to sunset, 365 days a year. Three Rivers State Park is located 2 miles north of Sneads on River Road (State Road 271).
