Blackwater State Forest - Florida's Playground - Blackwater River State Forest

Natural. Pure. And a source of pure adrenaline.

There aren’t many places where you can experience the endangered longleaf pine habitat that once covered the majority of the Southeast. Here, we’ve preserved more than 200,000 majestic acres—part of the world’s largest contiguous longleaf habitat.

The park and forest surrounding Historic Milton are known as the Canoe Capital of Florida with miles of streams and trails. The centerpiece of Blackwater River State Forest and State Park is the namesake river, which replenishes Navarre Beach daily with its pristine white sands.

Pick your adventure and pursue it here, surrounded by flora and fauna you won’t see anywhere else. Hike, bike, kayak, canoe and zipline. Pitch a tent, rent a cabin or check into modern tree-house accommodations.
