Cary State Forest offers visitors opportunities to hike, view wildlife, camp and more! Cary became Florida's second State Forest in 1937. The environment includes scenic mature flatwoods, sandhill and basin marsh. Wildlife and birdwatchers may see a white-tailed deer, wild turkey, bobcat, otter, alligator, great horned and barred owl, wild hog, or pileated woodpecker. Most of the current recreation facilities and designated trails are located on the original Cary Tract. Explore the boardwalk nature trail and walk across the forested wetlands, or one of the two equestrian trails. Primitive and RV campsites are available, with restrooms and shower facilities within a short hiking distance from each site. Leashed pets are allowed.
