This is the Florida You’re Looking For.
In addition to cultivating the magnificent orange and lemon groves that Central Florida became famous for, the early residents of the countryside surrounding Lake Weir enjoyed the healthy outdoor lifestyle and all kinds of recreational activities like boating, sport fishing and hunting. Nearly a century and a half later, lovers of privacy and the great outdoors are attracted to Lake Weir Preserve for the very same reasons.
If your passion is for the ride, Central Florida has an abundance of scenic roadways, parks and recreational areas, for cruising in your RV, motorhome, classic car, or motorcycle. For more automotive fun, Daytona International Speedway is just 60 miles away, while Gainesville’s car and truck shows are just 40 miles away. The Orlando and Zephyrhills car shows are just a little over an hour down the road. This entire area is home to countless RV and car shows, swap meets, and other auto and motorcycle events. Central Florida also provides a beautiful setting for the many RV Parks and Campgrounds tucked away among the forests and waterways.
You never will find,
Though you travel afar,
From the old Rocky Mountains,
To where pyramids are,
A place more delightful,
Created to cheer,
Than a home on the bluffs
That look over Lake Weir.
The Ocala National Forest – the oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River – is just 4 miles away. In this perfect locale for an active retirement, you will enjoy year-round camping, as well as walking, hiking, and biking trails, plus 200+ miles of ATV trails and designated areas for trail riding.
