About: Located within an hour of central Florida attractions and theme parks, this 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. Located three miles north of Leesburg and 30 miles south of Ocala.

The park’s 40 campsites, including seven pull-through sites, accommodate tents, trailers or motorized campers. Campsites 1, 2 and 27 are ADA accessible. Most campsites are shaded and well-buffered. Each site includes water, electricity, a picnic table and camp fire grill. A dump station is available. Showers, restrooms and laundry facilities in the center of the campground are ADA accessible. Well behaved pets are allowed in the campground.

A playground and a boat launch are located in the park. Canoe rentals are available. Lake Griffin also offers the Bedtime Story Camper Lending Library of picture books for campers aged four to nine. Ask at the Ranger Station about how to check out a book.

Maximum RV length = 40 ft.

Reservations: Reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance through ReserveAmerica.
