Wonderful campground! The waterfront sites are pullthroughs on a halfmoon loop. The sites are level gravel pads with a walkway that leads to a raised gravel sitting area for each site. The sitting area has a firepit and a picnic table. The sites are very well spaced and the park is quiet. You see a boat launch and swimming area across the lake. There is water and electric hookups and a dump station. We saw a bath house and several shelter areas. The camp hosts are super-friendly and even delivered wood to our campsite. We are looking forward to visiting again!
There’s a hiking loop called the Great Challenge. It’s so difficult, meandering up and down in elevation for 9 miles, that you may give up. Camping is grand— so much wildlife. If you’re lucky you may be able to see a panther or an indigo snake. The campgrounds used to be lush but Hurricane Irma really did a number of the vegetation. However, it doesn’t take away from the enjoying the doors. The river is nearby and across the river allows hunting so you may hear hunters. If you come in from the river and try to camp, make sure it hasn’t rained a lot which could make hiking up to a campsite challenging. They have both dispersed campsites and drive-up.
During the week of 7/19/2020 I spent 2 nights at this unique state park. After settling in I found the view out of my back dinette windows to be unlike any I had ever seen in Florida. Futher exploration found even better views from the bluff over the Apalachicola River and wooded expanses. Just keep an eye open for bears and snakes as this is true Florida wilderness.
A Florida State Park that reminds us of the foothills of North Carolina except for the occasional palm tree. Toured the Gregory House a cotton plantation house that was moved across the river by the CCC. We made a trip into Chattahoochee, FL for lunch and a look at the Jim Woodruff Dam where The Chattahoochee, Apalachicola and Flint Rivers converge.
