Hog Pen Landing

Area Status: Open

A campground with a lake in the background.

Hog Pen Landing offers quiet moments on waterfront campsites while Spanish moss sways with the wind. If you're lucky, you might just see a great blue heron fish for dinner. A boat ramp provides easy access to Ocean Pond. 

The Great Florida Birding Trail and the Florida National Scenic Trail pass close by and is just miles away from the Olustee Battlefield State Park, site of Florida's largest Civil War battle, which took place in 1864. The Olustee Battle Festival is held annually in Lake City. The Battle Re-enactment is held annually at the Olustee Battlefield State Park.


  • This area is a favorite for boaters and water-skiers, anglers and hunters. Hog Pen Landing is located on the northwest side of Ocean Pond off FS Road 241 and houses a public boat launch.


  • This area serves as a hunt camp during hunting season.


  • Fish from shore or take a boat out into Ocean Pond. This two-mile wide lake is perfect for both.
