Last Known Status
This popular area offers a large campground and several day use areas that provide direct trail access to the Ocala Adventure Trail, a 47 mile long trail loop that winds through the largest sand scrub pine forest in the world. The trail is mostly sandy and flat but has nice flow and some fun berms.
The main entrance road is long and dusty but flat. A trail pass is required to ride which can be purchased at the self pay kiosk and is good for three consecutive days.
Day use parking can be found at Blue Sink, Farles Prairie and Big Scrub Campground. The campground offers 62 sites, each with a picnic table and fire ring. Two large bathhouses are available that have flush toilets and hot showers.
There are no hookups but a few water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Reservations are not required but are recommended especially during holiday weekends which can be made online or by calling (877) 444-6777.
