An interesting variety of woodlands and marshy areas can be viewed on short scenic dirt roads and from a boardwalk through this beautiful state forest. Saw several deer, rabbits, cara caras, red and black headed vultures, tiny doves, and quail. Bring your camera and binoculars and plan on taking your time driving through Okaloacoochee to explore its hidden treasures.
Very peaceful and relaxing. It was so nice to be away from people and the roads. Has a very Florida feel with lots of untouched trails and trees/plants. You could def make a day of it! We will be going back.
