Little Pee Dee State Park has a variety of habitats, attracting huge numbers of birds at all seasons. There is a lake, a large beaver pond (with breeding Least Bitterns), oak-pine woods, pine plantation, floodplain forest, and an interesting area of sand dune and bay thickets near the river, much of which is in the adjacent Little Pee Dee Heritage Preserve.
