Imagine you are high on top of a wooded ridge overlooking one of the most scenic rivers in Florida. That can be you if you are adventurous and willing to hike into one of the three Rock Bluff Primitive Camps at Torreya State Park. Each camping area is divided into four different small sites.
This adventure is a must and is hard to put into words unless you have experience camping in the "Mountains of Florida."

Torreya State Park is rich in history. During the Civil War some 200 Confederate soldiers called the high bluffs home for two years. The cannon emplacements are still visible today along one of our hiking trails. We also offer daily tours of the 1840s plantation home of Jason Gregory and family.
This 3,000-square-foot home originally sat on the west bank of the Apalachicola River. The home was donated to the Civilian Conservation Corps in the late 1930s with the understanding that the home would be dismantled and moved. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers took every brick and board, loaded the pieces on barges, transferred to the east bank and then reconstructed the fine old home where it can be seen today.
Torreya State Park is one of the original Florida State Parks opening to the public in 1935. The park was created by the hard work of the CCC and the Florida Board of Parks. The expert craftsmanship of the CCC workers can still be seen today in the reconstruction of the circa 1840s Historic Gregory House or the beautiful stone bridge on the old Federal Highway or inside the original CCC barracks. No matter what you choose, you will love Torreya.
