  • We spent the weekend of Jan 16-20, 2019 tent camping. It was excellent! We stayed in the Panther Pond Camping area. It was about $10 per night plus a less than $7 service fee for the transaction...

  • Amazing so much to do and look for. So quiet and clean loved it can't wit to return and explore more on horse back!
  • I live only 20 minutes from this state forest and I was a bit hesitant coming here to hike due to it being so remote. Boy I am glad that I went! I hiked the two main trails, Tram trail and Twin Mills. The tram trail runs on a old logging tram and there are remnants left of the rail line. The twin mills trail is very nice to hike as you enter a oak hammock. There isn't much wildlife during the day but Im sure there is during the evening. This is one of the only state forests in south Florida and I'm glad to live near it.
