Holton Creek Water Management Area
Located in south central Hamilton County. This land was acquired under the save our rivers program to protect limestone outcrops and lush seepage slopes along 10 winding miles of the Upper Suwannee River. More than 2,000 acres of river bluff hardwoods and pine plantations contain two first-magnitude springs that flow into the Suwannee River. Horseback riding, bicycling, hiking, wildlife viewing, and fishing are allowed. Wildlife in the area includes wild turkey, gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, gray squirrel, eastern cottontail rabbit, raccoon, American alligator, and red-tailed hawk. The Florida Trail winds along the riverfront for many miles. This is the second river camp between White Springs and Branford and provides five screened shelters, a picnic pavilion restrooms with hot showers, and a tent-camping area. This area is also a site on the Great Florida Birding Trail.
