Peace River State Forest was acquired in October 2014. The Florida Forest Service has management responsibility for Peace River State Forest. The property has a rich history of agricultural use, including serving as a home for rhinos, hippos, giraffes and other exotic "hoofstock" for nearly a decade. The management plan of the Florida Forest Service guides the grazing, outdoor recreation, timber, wildlife and ecological restoration on the forest using the multiple-use concept.
Peace River State Forest is located in western Desoto County approximately 6 miles southwest of Arcadia and 10 miles northeast of Port Charlotte.
Peace River State Forest includes a variety of improved range and natural communities, including floodplain forest, cypress, mixed hammock and remnants of pine flatwoods. Several miles of largely undisturbed frontage along Horse Creek and the Peace River provides abundant wildlife habitat.
While not yet open to the public, immediate plans for recreational opportunities include hiking trails, primitive camping, and hunting as part of the Operation Outdoor Freedom program.
