At 2,883 acres, the Little Lake George Wilderness is the smallest of the wilderness areas on the Ocala National Forest, but it’s the only one that boasts a shoreline.

Located near the confluence of the St. Johns and Ocklawaha Rivers at the northeastern corner of the Ocala National Forest, this remote area is best explored on a paddling trip.

There are no old roads or trails into the area. It’s a dense swamp of red maple, gum, ash, cabbage palm and cypress trees draped with Spanish moss, with small areas of loblolly and slash pine on the drier western edge.
