Ocala National Forest

A part of the fabric of everyday life for thousands of people who live in communities inside and around its boundaries, the Ocala National Forest is a significant public resource for residents and visitors alike.

Deer hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, horseback riding and canoeing are all traditional uses that continue today, along with more modern additions such as OHV trails.

Dispersed Camping: Many enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of dispersed camping - camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. However, no services and little to no facilities are provided. Additional responsibilities and skills may be necessary for a successful trip and it is your responsibility to know your limits and abilities before you try this experience. Camping rules and regulations apply; they make your experience safe and they keep forest settings scenic and unspoiled for fellow campers.

The new interactive visitor map is a work in progress and will be updated as additional information becomes available. The map currently includes information for most national forest recreation sites and roads.

Pets: Dogs are welcome on most areas of the forest, but must be on a leash at all times. Dogs are not allowed on the beach at swimming areas. For more information on the Ocala National Forest pet policy please call the Lake George District Ranger Office at 352-625-2520.
