Torreya Sate Park was a beautiful park. The views from the lookout point of the lands below the bluff are breathtaking. It certainly was a side of Florida I hadn't experienced before. We stayed in the 1 yurt available in the campgrounds. It was an awesome experience. It was very clean and well-maintained. There were even some hidden surprised in... More

Unusual tree species. Old restored Plantation Era mansion on the bluff of the Apalachicola River. Best time to visit is the spring with flowering trees and scrubs: Redbud, Dogwood and Magnolia trees. Great for picnics and hiking.

This is a wonderful state park with plenty of shade and quiet. This park is a little off the beaten path with the nearest town 13 miles away. The park is clean, quiet and easy to check into. We showed up with no reservation and picked our camp site. Walk-in guests will need check in at the office between 1500-1700.... More

If you think that Florida doesn't have any hills or inclines, then you haven't been to Torreya State Park in the panhandle. There are 2 main loops that are both over 6 miles long, so make sure you pack PLENTY of water, or you will be miserable. You overlook and hike next to the Apalachicola River, and that is pretty...

Torreya is unique in the hills and valleys on its hiking trails, for a floridain they feel more like mountains. The park has a very nice camping with WPA structures still in use and very well maintained. We like to hike from the campsites to the Apalachicola river, just pay attention to the trails as it is easy to get... More

This park has gorgeous views overlooking the Apalachicola River, and great hiking trails with a lot of up and down elevation changes. If you're from south Florida like we are, it may take some getting used to for climbing all of the hills. There is a little waterfall on a trail near the campground, and all the trails traverse many... More

I would give it 5 stars if the campsites were better. The actual sites are small and many have very little understory, so you do not feel privacy. But we sucked it up because the camp hosts and rangers were in a word, wonderful. The bath houses are spotless and inviting. The hiking trails were outstanding. I would go back.... More

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
