Forest Service must allow for use of lands, but still preserve them for future

Published Dec. 30, 2007
The oldest national forest in the eastern continental U.S., it was even created in controversy a century ago, leading to an unusual nickname: the "Midnight Forest."

The Forest is bound roughly by the Ocklawaha River on the north and west, the St. Johns River on the east, and almost the county line to the south.

The Juniper Springs Recreation Area was conceived and constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935 to attract visitors to the Ocala National Forest for recreational use.
