Outdoor Recreation in Florida Highlights
Photo collage of park activities

Florida is a magnet for outdoor recreation enthusiasts, filled with abundant natural places of great beauty that draws millions of residents and tourists each year.

The Department of Environmental Protection is directed by the Florida Legislature to cooperate with state and federal agencies, private organizations, and commercial and industrial interests in the promotion of a state outdoor recreation program. Florida’s ideal outdoor recreation program is a diverse, connected and balanced system of outdoor recreation resources, facilities and programs.

This website supports the vision of Florida's ideal outdoor recreation system by providing a central resource of information regarding outdoor recreation in Florida and related information on Florida’s official outdoor recreation planning document, the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP).
