Hiking and Rock Collecting

The biggest attractions to Rockhound State Park are hiking and rock collecting. The Thunder Egg Trail is a 1.1 mile trail through the foothills of the Small Florida Mountains and offers great views of the Big Florida Mountains and the valley below. The trail ends to the Camping Area and is not a loop so you have to either backtrack or walk down the road to return to the trailhead. It also connects to the trail leading back to the Visitors Center. This is the primary trail for looking for interesting rocks. Here at the park you can find: quartz, chalcedony, agate, geodes common opals and other semi-precious stones. Each person may take up to 15 pounds of rocks out of the park.


Camping is available at the park. They have sites with and without electricity. Plus beautiful scenery at no extra charge.
