Ocala Forest is a land of contrasts

Published Dec. 30, 2007
You and your neighbors own 384,000 acres known as the Ocala National Forest. And this mighty land holding will celebrate its 100th anniversary on Nov. 24, 2008.

..camping is available. Most of it is primitive. Except for Salt Springs, the campgrounds generally do not have water and electric. But there are two cabins that are rented and, at Alexander and Juniper Springs, there are bathhouses for campers.

The Forest Service also works with other government agencies. The U.S. Geological Survey and St. Johns River Water Management District have permits for monitoring wells for water levels and quality in the Forest. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission operates a shooting range and manages wildlife.
