The park and campground are amazing. Very beautiful. However, we were forced to stay inside of our camper each night and didn't dare venture on the trails. During our two day stay, I personally saw and had to run off, 7 copperheads from the camp area. I am aware that in nature that you have to deal with nature. However,... More

We booked a campsite for the weekend as we continue our quest to stay at all of the Florida State Parks. The journey to the park was an amazing drive through the countryside, while on a map the park doesn't look far off I-10, the back roads take a while to get to the park. Our campsite was very shaded... More

This is a small campground surrounded by very nice hiking trails. There are many small streams that are great for your dog to cool off in. Saved me from having to carry water for her. The house tour was interesting and the ranger knowledgeable. I stayed in campsite 6 but if I came here again I'd recommend the west side... More

We stopped here for two nights. It is a small campground with only 30 sites, but it is beautiful and serene. The hiking trails were nice and so were the facilities. They have a common area with tables and a wood burning stove which was so great for us since it turned cold last night. Would definitely recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed camping in our Fifth-wheel here. Sites are very large with a picnic table, fire pit, and clothesline. The ranger and the camp host were helpful and friendly. It was immaculately kept, lots of trees with a platform deck overlooking Apalachicola River Valley. Beautiful. Lots of nature trails and hiking capabilities within a short distance. Family friendly. Only... More

We stayed at Torreya two days on a trip further south. We stayed in a RV. There isn't a bad camping site in the park. Each site had its own fire pit and picnic table. Each had a small patch of trees to provide extra privacy. Over the holiday period, it was only about 2/3 full. About 30 or sites... More

Thank you for the kind words!! That was a great review! You are so right about being out there, but this is where you go for true peace and quiet. Not a sound of traffic or sirens, just crickets and birds and the occasional coyote howl. We appreciate your feedback on your experiences you had while visiting the park. We... More

Stayed here the beginning of October 2016 during the time hurricane Matthew hit the East Coast. I already had a reservation for a campsite for a 30 ft motorhome. Some of the sites are narrow but will accommodate most trailers and motorhomes. All have water and 30 amp service. Half the sites have 50 amp service. The campground is rustic,... More

A wonderful place to mix history, hiking, and camping. Built by the Civilian Conservation Camp, a State Park with a unique history and amenities like most Florida State Parks
