Some recreation areas on the Apalachicola National Forest remain closed because of impacts from Hurricane Michael. Please check the Recreation Conditions Report to see if your favorite area is open.

The Apalachicola National Forest is the largest forest in Florida, with an abundance of fresh water streams, rivers, lakes, and natural springs.

Make sure to visit Leon Sinks, an unusual geological area of caverns and sinkholes, or the Apalachee Savannas Scenic Byway, with its stunning displays of wildflowers in open prairies near the Apalachicola River.
