“hiking canoeing and fishing”

Located within an hour of central Florida attractions and theme parks, this 620 acre park is home to one of the state's largest live oak trees. A short trail near the park entrance takes visitors to the mammoth oak tree.  A canal connects the park to Lake Griffin, the eighth largest lake in Florida, where visitors can enjoy boating and canoeing, as well as fishing. Anglers will find plenty of largemouth bass, bluegill, speckled perch, and catfish. Visitors can observe the park's wildlife while picnicking or strolling along the half-mile nature trail.  A shady, full-facility campground beckons travelers to spend the night or an entire vacation here. There is no swimming due to a healthy alligator population. Canoe & kayak rentals are available.  Located three miles north of Leesburg and 30 miles south of Ocala.

Recently visited here for the first time, and while the park is small it is gorgeous. The river and nature trail are great, but the real highlight is definitely the Mammoth Oak--it's definitely the biggest live oak I've ever seen, and my daughters had a blast exploring the base of the tree. Must see!

This would be an ok place to camp. Great playground and volleyball court. Loads of picnic tables and places to grill. Also if you've got a boat, the marina is small but well-maintained. You can also rent canoes and kayaks.
