This is a great place to camp. There are a lot of different camp grounds, with electric and water, for tents and campers. You can hike, fish, or just relax. My family has camped here several times.

This place is awesome, you have to walk about a mile tops but it's so worth it. There's lots of giant caves some so big you can camp multiple tents in them

It's great to bike, hike, horseback ride. Nice smooth walking/hiking trail. They also have a great motocross track out near the interstate. Back in the day, you could take old cars out there to have fun "mudding" with, but, you know..times have changed. It's now "fru-fru" and monitored.

State park is beautiful with well marked trails. Restrooms are clean and located by the parking lots. There are sections of old growth forest in the park. The huge magnolia trees are breathtaking. As of October there are a lot of ticks in the park so check yourself when you are done with your walk.

There are so many things to enjoy in the Withlacoochee State Forest. I particularly enjoy the marked and mapped horse trails. It is the perfect place to trailer in your horses, park at a comfortable camp with water and power and ride for hours or days and days! There are also special marked trails for hiking and a bike trail.... More

I travel to this park a two to three times a year. I am a trail runner and camper. The park is huge with great trails for biking, hiking and running. All trails are well marked. You can also RV camp in a designated camp ground. The park is very well maintained.
