Forest Capital State Park

Most of the Florida Forest Festival events are held, quite naturally, at Forest Capital State Park, located at 204 Forest Park Drive in Perry, Florida.

Home to Forest Capital State Museum, the park is part of the Florida State Park system overseen by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

The museum celebrates the heritage of Florida’s forest industry. The heart of the museum is dedicated to longleaf pines and the 5,000 products manufactured from them. The 50-plus-year-old longleaf pines growing on the museum grounds provide a majestic canopy and create an enjoyable walking trail for visitors. Adjacent to the museum is an authentic 19th century Cracker homestead, much like those scattered throughout Florida at the turn of the century. Rangers lead interpretive tours during special events and upon request. Three covered pavilions, that seat up to 60 people each, are available.
