The Ocala National Forest has some awesome campgrounds nestled among America’s southernmost forest. The banks of a pristine lake, a hamlet of shady old oaks, or a wide open prairie perfect for stargazing — where would you want to post up for a night or two? Take your pick at Ocala National Forest, which has over a dozen campgrounds, from primitive digs to tricked out tent sites, to choose from. And if you’re looking to get away from it all for longer than usual, good news: you can usually stake out a campsite for up to two weeks. Make sure and check out the Forest Service Website for important information. You can also get all the deets on closures or alerts and permits before you head out.
