Anybody have any luck herping Pocahontas State Park? I've been wanting to go but there are so many bike and walking trails to choose from!

The VHS had it's 2013 spring survey at Pocahontas State Park. We found a total of 16 amphibians (nine anurans and seven salamanders) and 21 reptiles (four turtles, four lizards and 13 snakes). In total just over 450 specimens. (Anything over 25 species is considered a successful survey.)

The park is large 3,237 ha (8,000 ac), old (81 years old) and is at the interface of the Piedmont and Coastal Plain physiographic regions, providing a great diversity of species due to the combination of different habitats.

That is good to know, I seen quite a few turtles a few years back, of course this was water front as I was out there taking my son Fishing.
