CLINTON NATURE PRESERVE is located at 8720 Ephesus Church Road one mile west of Post Road. The Post Road/Ephesus Church Road intersection is one-half mile south of the Post Road/Interstate 20 interchange.

This 200-acre park was donated to Douglas County by Ms. Annie Mae Clinton. The park is required by Ms. Clinton's will to remain in its natural state as much as possible. The park contains nature trails, and open exploration areas.

A half-mile walking track encircles the Junior League ADA accessible playground, the first of its kind in Douglas County.


About one mile into the woods (by hiking), is the Carnes Cabin, a pre-Civil War residence, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The park is open seven days a week during daylight hours.
