The park provides a needed refuge for wildlife populations in the area. The park covers two physiographic provinces and lies in a transition zone between northern and southern climates, resulting in diverse habitats that can support healthy breeding populations of numerous animal species.

Several studies have uncovered a few state rare or threatened species, as well as species of special concern. Threats to wildlife in the park include poaching development and direct habitat loss and alteration.

Current inventory data includes:

38 species of mammals

24 species of amphibians

27 species of reptiles

Over 100 species of birds

23 species of fish
