Twin Rivers


Twin Rivers State Forest is comprised of 16 noncontiguous tracts. There are many natural communities within Twin River State Forest. Among these are sandhill, floodplain, swamp and sinkhole communities. American elm, river birch, sweetgum, water hickory and bald cypress can be found in the floodplains. Longleaf pine, turkey oak, post oak and live oak are common in the drier sandhill areas. Clear running springs are located on the Anderson Springs and Withlacoochee tracts. White-tailed deer, bobwhite quail, bobcat, otter, beaver, alligator and wild turkey are frequently seen on the forest. Twin Rivers State Forest offers a few primitive campsites located along multiple-use trails accessible via hiking, cycling and canoeing.
