Most Florida State Parks have some sort of entrance fee if they have developed facilities such as campgrounds, launches, and interpretive trails.
Many of the preserves in the Florida State Park system, which largely incorporate hiking trails, are vast wild spaces with free access.
In addition to campgrounds and cabins, paddling routes, and bike trails, you’ll find a full range of hiking in Florida State Parks, including interpretive walks, day hikes, and backpacking loops for up to four days of backcountry exploration.
