Three Rivers State Park

7908 Three Rivers Park Road
850-482-9006

Hiking through forested hills of pine and mixed hardwoods, visitors might catch sight of fox squirrels, white-tailed deer, gray foxes or many species of native and migratory birds. Campers can launch from a boat ramp to enjoy some of the best freshwater fishing in the state, or fish from a 100-foot pier in the camping area. A shady picnic area, with tables and grills, overlooks the lake.

The park is currently in recovery following Hurricane Michael. Previously, for large gatherings, three pavilions were available for rental. For overnight visitors, full-facility (no sewer hook-up, dump station only) campgrounds next to the lake and modern cabins were available. When the park reopens, please contact the park for information regarding camping availability.

Experiences

Bicycling
There are over seven miles of trails and paved roads in the park for bicyclists to enjoy (semi-rough terrain with moderate elevation changes).  Helmets are highly recommended for all cyclists and Florida law requires helmets for cyclists age 16 and under.

Birding
Bird viewing opportunities are bountiful at Three Rivers State Park! We have our very own bird watching check list made readily available to those interested.  American Bald Eagles make their nests within the park, and can be seen soaring over the lake. Waterfowl by the hundreds seek refuge in the quiet bays and sloughs that surround the park.

There are two small boat ramps within the park, suitable for smaller watercraft. One ramp is located within the campground, for use by registered campers only. The other ramp is located close to the picnic area, for general use by park visitors. There are also two county-maintained boat ramps that will accommodate larger craft; one of these ramps is found on the eastern boundary of the park, the other is found on the western boundary of the park.
