About Withlacoochee State Forest

Encompassing over 160,000 acres across five counties, the expansive Withlacoochee State Forest is the largest in Florida. Its habitats include sandhills, cypress domes, hardwood hammocks, pine flatwoods, and lush wet prairies.

Diverse wildlife like whitetail deer, wild turkey, and gopher tortoise call the preserve home. The forest also harbors rare plant species and some of the state's remaining old-growth longleaf pine communities. Its natural splendor and conservation efforts earned “green” certifications.

Within the forest, our rental operation resides along the Croom Off-Highway Vehicle Area. This encompasses over 33,000 acres for recreation like Withlacoochee ATV Riding. The zone contains roughly 80 miles of marked trails offering beginner-level lettered paths to challenging numbered courses traversing wooded hills, wetlands, and creek beds.
