Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest Reviews & Ratings
An interesting variety of woodlands and marshy areas can be viewed on short scenic dirt roads and from a boardwalk through this beautiful state forest. Saw several deer, rabbits, cara caras, red and black headed vultures, tiny doves, and quail. Bring your camera and binoculars and plan on taking your time driving through Okaloacoochee to explore its hidden treasures.
Very peaceful and relaxing. It was so nice to be away from people and the roads. Has a very Florida feel with lots of untouched trails and trees/plants. You could def make a day of it! We will be going back.
Just camped here the other night. Absolutely gorgeous area with tons of wildlife and great views. The only negative is that the campsite is located right next to a small pond so make sure to bring plenty of bug spray because even in December the bugs were everywhere, so I could only imagine what they would be like in summer. Roads are well maintained and most campsites offer a good amount of shade. Plenty of good hiking trails and not too far from a Walmart if you run out of any supplies. Really close to the Everglades and Fort Myers so lots of fun opportunities near by as well. Would definitely recommend!
Very mucky. Required the 6x6 military truck to haul the semi load up to high ground.
I'm a photographer and came across this park when a client from the other coast of Florida and I decided to meet halfway between us. It's such a beautiful park with so much property to explore. Wish we could've stayed longer! Photos by Katie Beiler Photography.
