Hickory Landing is a picturesque, 10-site campground among cypress stands along the bank of Owl Creek and provides easy access to the Apalachicola River.

Boating

  • For canoe enthusiasts, the trip from Cotton Landing, on Kennedy Creek, to Hickory Landing on Owl Creek via the Apalachicola River is a favorite full-day paddle.
  • Hickory Landing, on Owl Creek, is another excellent put-in for the two-mile trip to the Apalachicola River. Owl Creek is deep and wide, lined by the beautiful river swamp habitat of the Apalachicola floodplain.

Hiking

  • Hikers will enjoy access to the Wright Lake Trail, a 4.6-mile loop. The birding here is excellent and nearby pitcher plant bogs bloom in March and April.
