Lake Griffin State Park
Welcome to Lake Griffin State Park
The U.S. Highway 441-27 road widening project has been completed. The southbound left turn lane into the park begins just south of CR-466A. There is no northbound turn lane into the park. Be prepared to turn right, into the park, from the right hand traffic lane, just past New Life Presbyterian Church, and across from Spa Kingdom.
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.
