Within this park is the site of Fort Chokonikla, built in late 1849 as an outpost in a chain of forts established to control the Seminoles. A museum at the visitor center depicts the lives of Florida’s Seminoles and pioneers during the 19th century. Today, nature enthusiasts can enjoy walking along trails through the park’s natural areas, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing.
