Camping trip to Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park

One of Florida´s first state parks, Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park was developed on a 2,000-acre site by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the 1930s. The extraordinary craftsmanship of the CCC is still evident today. Located on rolling sandhills in an area known as the central ridge of Florida, a deep ravine with springs issuing from its sides bisects the area and forms Gold Head Branch. Marshes, lakes and scrub provide a habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.

They have a lovely campground overlooking a lake. We will spend the weekend hiking the park, looking for native plants, socializing and enjoying one of our state's finest parks.

Join us for a weekend of learning more about the flora and fauna of the natural areas of our great state.  Reservations can be made at
