General Description

Torreya Yurt
Copyright: - Florida Division of Recreation & Parks
Torreya Yurt
Torreya State Park offers a unique yurt. What is a yurt? Ask park staff and they might answer "Year-round Universal Recreational Tent." Truly, a yurt is the Mongolian term for tent. What does it mean for us recreation enthusiasts? It means enjoying the camping experience without buying camping equipment.

Torreya's yurt is a 10-foot round, domed tent with flooring, electricity, furnished, lockable wooden door, and three large windows with screens and flaps that open. The yurt sleeps five and features air conditioning / heating, skylight, futon and bunk twin bed on top, table and chairs, and a leisure deck.

Facilities include (nearby at the campground fire ring, picnic table, hot showers and clean restrooms. Supplies available at the Old Barracks Building include soft drink machine, ice, firewood, butane lighters, propane, and insect repellent. Things to bring are bedding and towels, flashlight, food (nearest shopping is 15 miles) and cooking / eating utensils. The yurt rents for $30 a night.

If you've never seen a yurt or spent the night in one, you won't be disappointed. They are much sturdier than a tent; they are raised above the ground, and provide a one-room cabin feel. These are very popular and relatively new throughout the park system in America. Once you spend the night, you'll be hooked!

Directions from Bristol, FL: Take Route 12 northeast to Route 1641. Distance is approximately 13 miles. (There are signs on Interstate 10, exit 24.) After entering the park, the cabin community is the second left.
