This easily-accessible part of the forest is beautiful and historic and thought-provoking and educational.

The Apalachicola National Forest is a beautiful tree-filled area of the Gulf Coast that people pass through and by en route to many other activities, including the beaches and fishing. It is pristine and magnificent, allowing the traveler to take a deep breath in preparation for a wonderful adventure or as a precursor to a return to the day to... More

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
