Forest Capital State Museum
There are two things to see at this small state park – a forestry museum and a “cracker” homestead. The museum has displays about the plants and animals of Florida’s forests and the products that are produced from the trees. The homestead has a 1863 “dog trot” house with furnishings, outbuildings and farm equipment typical of the time.
The museum is handicapped accessible but the homestead is not. The homestead is located behind the museum with a pine mulch path connecting the two. The mulch is soft making rolling along difficult. The homestead yard is loose sand, very hard to roll along. There isn’t a ramp up to the house’s porch.
RVs can be parked sideways across the parking spaces. Forest Museum
