National Forests in Florida


Doe Lake is a group campsite with a variety of activities. Centered around a historic lodge with a large group kitchen, it's an ideal place for major outdoor gatherings of up to 250 people. The site is a favorite among equestrian groups, but can also accommodate weddings and other social events. For reservations or refund request please call (877) 444-6777


Equestrian camping, canoeing, boating and fishing are some of the popular activities around Doe Lake, and can be enjoyed exclusively by visitors with a group reservation. Campers can launch a canoe or low-powered boat and drop a line in the middle of Doe Lake for an afternoon of fishing.


This site is centered around a classic 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps dining hall that has been historically restored. Tent camping is most common at this facility. RVs and horse trailers are allowed, but limited to specific areas that do not offer hookups. Restrooms with flush toilets and showers are provided, as are hitching posts for horses.

Natural Features

Located in north central Florida, the Ocala National Forest spans four counties and 383,000 acres. It is the southernmost and oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River and protects the world's largest contiguous sand pine scrub forest. The camping area sits beneath a shady grove of oaks and pines overlooking Doe Lake, and the dining hall sits atop a grassy hill with a view of the water.

Nearby Attractions

The Ocala National Forest is notable for its extensive off-road trail system catering to both ATV enthusiasts and Jeeps, as well as being a traditional destination for deer hunters. These opportunities are available in designated areas throughout the forest.

Great group campsite

Great group campsite. The forest road getting in is very rough and pot holes. But luckily it is a short drive into the camp. They were only a couple of electric hook ups and a few water Spigots around the camp. There is no place to dump but we usually go to big buck lake off of sr 42 And dump on our way home for three dollars. There is a very nice kitchen/mess hall and bathrooms with hot showers. We always seem to get beautiful sunsets over the lake.

Beautiful place

Been here a few times for Hangcon and it is a wonderful place. Facilities are very clean and convenient. Would be a wonderful place to host an event. Perfect place for about 300 hammock campers in January. Doe Lake is beautiful and a perfect place to kayak.
