Apalachicola National Forest


The Apalachicola National Forest is the largest forest in the state spanning across four counties in the Florida Panhandle. It is a place of botanical and wildlife splendor, home to several endangered and threatened species, providing some of best birding and botanical study in Florida. Virgin stands of towering pine and cypress, hardwood hammocks, titi swamps, and vast pitcher plant prairies all create a forest wonderland worth exploring. The expansive forest includes six watersheds including the Ochlockonee, Sopchoppy, Lost Creek, and Wakulla River basins that create a steady flow of fresh water which feeds the coastal nurseries of Ochlockonee Bay, and provides a vital link in the production of our renowned seafood.
Outdoor recreation in the forest includes a wide array of activities, from picnicking to kayaking and canoeing the waterways to mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing, ATV and motorbike riding, backpacking and camping. There are designated recreational areas and areas of special interest. Nearby Leon Sinks at the northern edge of the county is a geological marvel well worth the visit.
