Manager's Message Torreya State Park

Jason Vickery, Park Manager

On October 10, 2018 Hurricane Michael roared inland sweeping category 4 winds across Torreya State Park's landscape. The effects of the hurricane will be evident for many years to come. Work began immediately after the storm to clear debris left behind in its aftermath. Three park service strike teams, contractors, our dedicated staff and the park service director have worked hard in preparing the park for re-opening. I am so proud of the teamwork that I have witnessed after this tragic event, with everyone’s goal being to re-open for public visitation.

I am proud to announce Torreya State Park's campground re-opened on March 1, 2019! The campground was impacted heavily by Hurricane Michael's winds causing extensive tree loss. This also impacted the plumbing and electrical infrastructure from fallen and uprooted trees. The necessary repairs have been made and we are excited to be welcoming campers back to a changed, but beautiful campground.

Hiking opportunities remain limited at this time due to downed trees on most of the trail system. We have around three miles opened for hiking, and park staff will be glad to help guide you in the right direction. Please stay on-trail and adhere to all closed signage for your safety.

Guided tours of the Gregory House occur Monday - Friday at 10 a.m. EST and on weekends and holidays at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern Time
