Ocala National Forest is the largest nationally protected forest in Florida, and offers exciting activities, beautiful sights, and a number of camping and outdoor accommodation options. Ocala National Forest in Central Florida is home to a stunning 383,000 acres of natural landscape ready to be explored, including over 600 lakes, rivers and springs.

Head to the tropical paradise of Alexander Springs Recreation Area for consistent 72-degree water that is crystal clear and surrounded by maple, sweetgum, and cabbage palm forest. Salt Springs Recreation Area is also one of the forest's top attractions with a natural spring that derives from deep fissures within the earth leaving very salty waters.
