You can camp along any trail, even off the trail if you find a suitable site. Of course, whatever you bring into the forest, you must bring out. Alternatively, if you don’t enjoy camping, you can enjoy nature and wilderness while staying in one of the cabins in Ocala National Forest. There are two cabins in this forest: Lake Dorr Cabin, which is near Lake Dorr. This cabin can hold up to 10 people. Sweetwater Cabin, located near Sweetwater Spring, can hold up to 12 people. These cabins are ideal for families or a group of friends. The best part is they have facilities such as a swimming pool, access to springs, and boats and canoes for hire.
