Forests and Wildlife Refuges

Natural North Florida’s three National Wildlife Refuges conserve native Florida habitat in order to provide wintering habitat for migratory birds and to protect the water quality of the historic Suwannee River. Its two national forests provide for a variety of uses and contain sections of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Four state forests also provide for a number of recreational activities, including whitewater paddling.

At over one million acres, more than 300 campsite and 200-plus miles of trails, the wildlife refuges and forests of Natural North Florida provide ample opportunity for your outdoor adventures.
