Faver-Dykes State Park
Description - Faver-Dykes State Park contains 1,608 acres along Pellicer Creek, an aquatic preserve and state canoe trail. The creek, pine flatwoods and mesic hammock are home to many deer, turkeys, hawks, bobcats and river otters.

Attractions - Like much of the territory in Florida, Timucuan Indians once inhabited the land of Faver-Dykes State Park. Despite the fact that this park is located in the busy northeastern area of the state, it remains a haven for those who enjoy parks off the beaten track. The main attraction of the park is the Pellicer Creek, which ordains a quiet tranquility throughout the 1,608 acres. The park is noted for its pristine condition showcasing a variety of trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. While traveling down the unpaved park road, visitors experience a canopy of live oak trees, covered resurrection fern and green-fly orchid. Some unusual plants grow under the hammock canopy including Indian pipe, spring coralroot, and Florida coontie. A highlight of the park is the wildlife; Faver-Dykes State Park contains a variety of wildlife habitats and protects several rare and endangered species.

Recreation - Faver-Dykes State Park offers a variety of recreational activity including fishing, canoeing, camping, picnicking, hiking, and wildlife viewing.
