Lake Griffin State Park
Welcome to Lake Griffin State Park
NOTICE: Please excuse our dust!
U.S. Highway 441-27 through Fruitland Park is in the process of being widened from four lanes to six lanes. Traffic congestion may cause short delays when entering and exiting the park. Construction equipment activity during the day and night may increase noise levels in the campground. The road construction has significantly reduced the length of both northbound and southbound turn lanes into the park, please use caution when entering and exiting. Upon project completion, the park entrance/exit will be much improved and simplified.
Once you get past the entrance you should know that we are located within an hour of central Florida attractions and theme parks, this 620 acre park is home to one of the state's largest live oak trees. A short trail near the park entrance takes visitors to the mammoth oak tree. A canal connects the park to Lake Griffin, the eighth largest lake in Florida, where visitors can enjoy boating and canoeing, as well as fishing. Anglers will find plenty of largemouth bass, bluegill, speckled perch, and catfish. Visitors can observe the park's wildlife while picnicking or strolling along the half-mile nature trail. A shady, full-facility campground beckons travelers to spend the night or an entire vacation here. There is no swimming due to a healthy alligator population. Canoe & kayak rentals are available. Located three miles north of Leesburg and 30 miles south of Ocala.
