Torreya was my third park on a six state park camping tour. Rangers and camp host were nice. The staff get along well. The tour of Gregory house was excellent, fun and informative. There is a yurt and a cabin at the site, and a group hall to hang out in. There is a campfire circle, too. I hiked a... More

My wife and I took a day trip to explore Torreya for a future camping trip. The views remind me of middle Georgia/Alabama; definitely not something you would expect in Florida. There is a $3 entry fee (honor system) and camping is $16 per night plus tax. The camping site has great views too. We walked the trail that looped... More

I'm only giving this park three stars because we only did a short hike and saw the Gregory House (from the outside because it was locked). What I saw was worth two stars, and I'm giving an extra star in the hope that the rest of the park has something to offer. We had planned to hike the trail that... More

We stayed overnight in the cracker cabin and it was amazing. Te cabin was Clean, and cozy. Never expected that we would need radiators in Florida. It got to 27 and there was a wood burning stove in the campground hall. The campfire circle was good and the stars were amazing. Great forests too. Didn't go hiking.

I love Torreya State Park! It has two seven mile hiking loops along the bluffs of the Appalachicola River and is gorgeous. I live an hour away and go for day hikes each month except June - August, when the snake (they have copperheads) to spiderwebs/spiders in your face to insects to heat ratio is more than is enjoyable for...

This little park is a great place for serious biking and hiking because of the terrain. Hills and gullies! In Florida! Who knew!? The overlook in the campground is beautiful. We stayed in the winter with a small group of die-hard campers and a wonderful and helpful ranger. It was like being with easy-going, helpful family. There's not a lot... More

Stopped here on a whim, as we were passing by on I-10 and saw it on the map. It turned out to be a very interesting park. The terrain in this area is pretty hilly for Florida. You actually have a bit of elevation gain on the hiking trails, which are beautiful. There is an interesting mixture of natural scenery... More

We stopped here to hike a little, on our way from the panhandle back to south Florida. There are hills! Or at least one nice, big hill we were able to walk down and then up. Being mountain people we miss such elevation changes here in Florida, and it is nice to find that! There are some interpretive markers pertaining... More

Beautiful state park! We stayed a couple nights in the yurt and had a wonderful time! This is truly the only way to camp in Florida during the summer. We plan on going back more often even though it's a drive for us. All of the rangers were friendly and informative. If you are camping, make sure you stock up... More
