Hunt For Fossils On The Beautiful And Easy Peace River In Florida

You may have never heard the term “rockhounding” before, but it’s commonly used by outdoor enthusiasts and modern-day treasure hunters. Rockhounding is an exciting hobby for anyone adventuring through nature looking for gems, minerals, fossils, and the like. For instance, visiting the Fort Drum Crystal Mine to dig for crystals is exactly something somebody rockhounding would do. However, if you’re in search of other treasures, such as fossils and other unique minerals, we suggest checking out the easy-breeze Peace River Trail in Florida.

Note: Before digging or rockhounding, make sure you have all the necessary permits and permissions of the surrounding area.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Anyone can obtain a fossil permit to fossil hunt within the Peace River. Simply submit an application for fossil permit hunting here.
