Located south of Bonifay and north of Vernon off Highway 79, Burnt Sock Landing is a recreation site that allows public access to Holmes Creek.

Visitors can launch canoes, kayaks, or small boats from a recently improved launch site. A parking area with a portable toilet is available for use sunrise to sunset.

Burnt Sock Landing is an ideal entry point for a leisurely paddle down Holmes Creek. About an hour downstream, paddlers can take a break at Cotton Landing and then quickly paddle over to Cypress Spring – one of 57 documented springs on the creek.
