Quiet and Pleasing

Riding along on our bikes along the tall pines bordering the road on both sides added to the pleasant peaceful atmosphere even in the rain.

Glad we were driving a Subaru. Took a dirt road that got a bit sketchy at time but were rewarded with great scenery and a baby deer sighting

My absolute favorite place to go in Tallahassee. I'm here probably every weekend exploring trails, off-roading, hiking, camping, and everything else! It's an adventure free-for-all in the forest and its HUGE. An explorer's paradise.

If you haven't been here, please go. The tall trees, trails, and quiet (compared to Tallahassee) is just amazing. You're still close enough to go to a restaurant after a hike, but far away so that it feels like an oasis.

good place to get out and see nature. many little trails to explore and even just take a scenic drive. beware in hunting season, as the hunters are trigger happy.

A great place for hiking, birding and wildlife viewing, Readily accessible for great outdoor recreation but close to the comforts, great food and entertainment in Tallahassee.

I tent camped at the Camel Lake Campground. There are only ten sites on this beautiful Florida lake. Showers and flush toilets are a nice ammenity. The sites are widely separated to offer privacy. There is no camp store so one needs to be self contained. There is an easy one mile nature trail around the lake, but also one... More

We are usually not that picky and will pick up some trash if we find it to make it doable but this was disgusting. We visited the National Forest looking for a good place to camp in the woods for a while. We had great success with Ocala NF near Orlando. We arrived in the afternoon with plenty of time... More

We love the Apalachicola National Forest. the woods are well maintained through prescribed burns. USFS could do a better job providing visitor, historic & environmental information, either online or on site. The massive acreage results in many new places to discover. Invest in a good map. Gazateer or topos are a must

Driving through the ANF between Hosford, Fl. and Eastpoint, Fl. in the spring provides excellent opportunities for viewing many wild flowers...some of which can only be found in the ANF. Also, good chance for seeing wild life such as deer, squirrel foxes, and bear.
