Colt Creek State Park
About Colt Creek State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
The trees have started to pollinate and the sounds of spring are approaching. If you enjoy seeing the plants come back out of the dormant season then now is a good time to get out and hike, bike and horseback ride. When you are out on the trails be sure to pass by our recent burn area on the Orange trail to see the positive difference it makes for our flora and fauna! We also enjoy you coming out to fish and picnic. Be sure to pick up a park brochure when you pay at the honor fee station and have a great day exploring the natural wonders of the park.
We now accept credit cards. These can be used to buy park merchandise, canoe/kayak rentals, or for reservations of the pavilions. Are you looking for a place to have a family reunion, company picnic or wedding ceremony? We might just be the place. We have 3 pavilions available for rent.
Are you interested in giving back? Did you know that volunteers are a benefit to the Florida Park Service? If you are interested in volunteering with us please call Park Services Specialist Neal Gilmore at the park office, or come see us for more information.
