Lake Dorr Boat Ramp

Area Status: Open

The Lake Dorr Boat Ramp is a gently sloped launch site into Lake Dorr, just south of Lake Dorr Recreation Area, with courtesy dock. A four-wheeled drive vehicle is recommend due to the rough road leading back to boat ramp. Ample turn-around space.


  • Bring your boat, kayak or canoe and enjoy a day of fishing or exploring. 


  • Cast for bass in the middle of Lake Dorr or drop a line in from the shore.


  • Interested in getting on the water while gliding across the surface at high rates of speed? Sounds fun doesn't it? Bring your boat and get out there.

This boat launch is managed by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Lake Dorr Recreation Area

  • A massive patch of blue in a sea of green - that's Lake Dorr, one of the prettiest big lakes in the Ocala National Forest. Experience outdoor recreation at either the Lake Dorr Recreation Area - campground or day use - or by renting the cabin for your family or group. Along the northwest shore of the lake, the recreation area is set under the deep shade of an oak hammock. Bring the family out and get back to nature in this picturesque setting. We host campsites for tents, campers and RVs.

Nearby Lake Dorr Cabin

  • Set along the south shore of beautiful Lake Dorr, this secluded cabin is ideal for a family getaway. The cabin is situated with two bedrooms (including bunk beds) and a sofa bed, it can sleep up to 10 people. With a private boat ramp, fishing dock and canoes, it's a great destination for small groups that love being on the water.
