Tates Hell State Forest
Hiking, biking, paddling, camping, and other outdoor recreation in Tates Hell State Forest near Carrabelle. Covering more than 200,000 acres south of the Apalachicola National Forest, this is a very wet place full of pine plantations that should have never been introduced into a coastal swamp. Laced with a network of forest roads, it’s a confusing place to drive through. Its waterways are popular for fishing and paddling, and camping is permitted at several remote locations. Most visitors head for the High Bluff Coastal Hiking Trail since it has prominent trailheads along the Big Bend Scenic Byway.
