Nice trip to the forest with the family. Miles and miles of forest to drive through. Tons of lakes and springs to drive or kayak or hike to. Areas around can be a little tough. Great day trip!

If you are looking for a few side trails to enjoy your rig and fid a nice quiet spot to camp away from everyone and everything I'm afraid you're to late. Check google maps and you tube for all those spots that have amazing views and a plenty of spots to throw up a tent for the night...every one is blocked off now. The forestry service has closed almost all side trails leading to those beautiful spots you and your rig treaded lightly to access. You have to stick to the numbered roads and hike it in now. Want to camp? Designated campground, surrounded by everyone else that had the same idea you did. This use to be an amazing getaway for everyone. Now, its just an unpaved interstate with the only option to really see the beautiful lakes and prairies is by hiking to them. I won't be back.

Eco Tourism at its finest. Great place to swim and hike. There's also a place for primitive camping near Juniper Springs. The waters were clear and many shades of blue. There's a scenic boardwalk, bridge and historical millhouse.

Lots of waking trails. Dense forest. Camping, hiking, kayaking. Something for everyone. Well maintained. Wonderful aroma of pine.

We decided to visit on a whim from Orlando. I wish we had had more time and had done more research before we came. We were only able to be here for a couple hours, but it’s beautiful. I’d like to come back prepared to swim and to kayak. Would be a great place for the kids and I to spend the day.
