Lake Griffin State Park consists of ~621 acres of mesic flatwoods, sandhill, scrubby flatwoods, xeric hammock, basin marsh, baygall, depression marsh, hydric hammock, and river floodplain lake habitats. Although the park is not located on Lake Griffin, there is access to the lake from the park via the Dead River which terminates within the park boundaries.
It is notable for being the first property where the endemic and endangered Clasping Warea, Warea amplexifolia was protected.
