National Forest - Florida
The Ocala National Forest is located three miles (5 km) east of Ocala and 16 miles (26 km) southeast of Gainesville, Florida. It is the oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River and the southernmost national forest in the continental U.S. The word Ocala is thought to be a derivative of a Timucuan term meaning "fair land" or "big hammock". The forest is headquartered in Tallahassee, as are all three National Forests in Florida, but there are local ranger district offices located in Silver Springs and Umatilla.
