The natural beauty of Fern Hammock Springs

The Ocala features more than 600 lakes and rivers where visitors enjoy swimming, fishing, snorkeling, canoeing and boating. From migratory birds and playful manatees to delicate freshwater springs and some of the world's rarest plants, the Ocala is a haven for people (and animals) to escape to one of Florida's remaining wild places.

Recreation opportunities on the Ocala are listed on the left side of the screen. A full-screen interactive map also is available.
