The forest includes more than four miles of riverfront along Little Lake George on the St. Johns River, though not all of it is accessible to visitors. This area is one of the best preserved natural sections of the St. Johns and includes river swamps, pine flatwoods, sandhills and flatwoods lakes. There are two hiking trails to explore, as well as a scenic road for motorists. Locals often enjoy taking a dip in Mud Spring. Two primitive campsites can be rented on site.
