TORREYA STATE PARK
1,000 acres. This park in northwest Florida has scenery somewhat more typical of states to the north. There are high bluffs and deep ravines, along with swamplands and hardwood hammocks. The Apalachicola River flows through the park. Wildlife includes deer, bobcat, and wild turkey.
Activities: Hiking and backpacking are possible on a 7-mile loop trail, which circles around the park. Fishing is available on the river.
Camping Regulations: Camping is limited to two primitive areas located along the loop trail. One site overlooks the river. A maximum of 12
campers are allowed in each area, and it’s necessary to first register and pay a small fee before entering.
