There were a total of 31 state parks impacted by the damage caused from Hurricane Michael. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection recently celebrated two of these parks reopening with only two others remaining closed.
These reopenings include Torreya State Park and campground and Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park.
Torreya is known for an extremely rare species of Torreya tree that grows only on the bluffs along the Apalachicola River. St. George state park is a favorite destination for beach activities, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, boating, hiking, camping and nature study alongside amazing sunsets and star gazing.
