In March of 2014, a small group of Colt Creek State Park enthusiasts decided to start a friends group to support the park. The Friends of Colt Creek State Park, Inc. (FCCSP) is a charitable organization that was incorporated as a citizen's support organization. We invite you to come out and enjoy the 5,000 acre park in the heart of the Green Swamp. With the state's investment in purchasing the land and managing it as a state park, we protect our resources, provide habitat for wildlife, and offer recreational opportunities for Floridians and tourists. The park has miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding, and biking. There are several small lakes for fishing, kayaking and canoeing. There are primitive campsites and equestrian camping and a campground is in the planning and development stage.

We welcome you to join FCCSP and volunteer when time allows with our group or to assist at the park working with staff on a regular basis.

The 2016/2017 FCCSP Board of Directors:

Paula Dockery, President

Margaret Von Ehr, Vice President

Cathy Davis, 2nd Vice President

Julie Townsend, Treasurer

Alice Collins, Secretary

Reba Mazak, Director

Frank O'Reilly, Director

Larry Durrence, Director

Karen Turbeville, Director

We are fortunate to have two awesome volunteers who go above and beyond:

David White, official FCCSP photographer

Roz Hill, marketing and PR
