'One of Florida's Most Scenic Places'
Perhaps if we had read the park's description we would have been better prepared for how beautiful this place is. We had just randomly selected it as it was along our route and had availability over the weekend.
The campground is high on the bluffs overlooking the Apalachicola River (yes, bluffs.. in Florida!).
The campground is a huge circle (with a mix of nicely sized spacious sites and some quite small ones with little privacy – check the descriptions on ReserveAmerica.com, they are well indicated) with the front a public scenic overlook of the bluffs.
Cellular coverage was quite good here for both Verizon and AT&T, due to the bluffs. There is a washer & dryer available behind the full bathhouse, for just $2/load.
There's ample hiking here at the park, some of it rated quite challenging. We look forward to returning and tackling it.
The park is named for the Torreya tree, with this location being the last of the native habitats of this nearly extinct species. You may encounter a number of ecologists and botanists as your neighbors - which makes staying here extra interesting.
