About: High bluffs overlooking the Apalachicola River make Torreya one of Florida's most scenic places. The park is named for an extremely rare species of Torreya tree that only grows on the bluffs along the Apalachicola River. Developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, Torreya is popular for camping, hiking, and picnicking. Bird-watching is also a popular activity. Over 100 species of birds have been spotted in the park. Forests of hardwood trees provide the finest display of fall color found in Florida. The main campground offers full-facility campsites and a YURT (Year-round Universal Recreational Tent). Primitive campsites and a youth campground are also available. Ranger-guided tours of the Gregory House, a fully furnished plantation home built in 1849, are given at 10:00 a.m. on weekdays and 10:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on weekends and state holidays.
Steep bluffs rising more than 150 feet above the Apalachicola River provide some of Florida’s most unusual views. Thirty shaded campsites with electric and water hookups and a YURT accommodate overnight visitors. Restrooms with showers are located in the campground. Torreya's yurt is a 20-foot round, domed tent with flooring, electricity, a lockable wooden door and three large screened windows with flaps that open and close. The yurt accommodates five people and includes air conditioning/heating, skylight, futon with bunk twin bed on top, queen-size bed, table, chairs and a deck.
