The Presley family has run a campground and boat launch here for well over 40 years. Goode's Mill Lake is a wide bend on the Escatawpa River where Jackson Creek enters from the east. The Escatawpa is a classic southern blackwater river and is navigable by kayak or canoe for the majority of its length. A mile or so below the lake, Franklin Creek also enters from the east and lends its name to one of the local roads. While this area is very popular with skiers and jet skiers in the summer and on warm spring or fall weekends, it is very quiet in cooler months and on most weekdays.
