Apalachicola Getaways

park getaways

One of the most popular features of the Apalachicola National Forest is that more than 50 miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail slice through the Forest, including the Bradwell Bay Wilderness Area. In the southern area of the Apalachicola District, falls the Mud Swamp / New River Wilderness. Roads, giving the traveler a taste of the thick, dense environment, circle this wilderness area. Visitors will find the roads, hunt camps and tent campgrounds well marked.

The Apalachicola District offers the tourist a wide range of outdoor recreation opportunities. The lovely Savannahs Scenic Byway / Route 379 invites visitors to comfortable explore the Forest's wildlife and a variety of plant communities.

Visitors to the District will find seven campgrounds, an interesting historic site and ten hunt camps. Nearly all the facilities provide drinking water, picnic tables, fishing and boating opportunities. The more developed areas for swimming, picnicking, boating, and camping include Hitchcock, Camel Lake, and Wright Lake Recreation Areas.

Thirty-four miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail are offered in the Apalachicola District. This stretch of trail is easy compared to the eastern area, especially the Bradwell Bay Wilderness. Details about the Forest's portion of the trail may be found under Florida National Scenic Trail.
