Lake George State Forest offers many recreation opportunities. Bluffton Recreation Area is located on the St. Johns River and offers fishing, picnicking, and a 3/4 mile interpretive nature trail. While there is no boat ramp available, canoes and small jon boats may be launched from the bank. Fishing is also available at Jenkins Pond. The forest is open to visitors during daylight hours. Hikers, bicyclists and equestrians are welcome on roads, designated trails and permanent fire lines. Contact us to obtain a State Forest Use Permit for primitive camping or for vehicle access to portions of the Mary Farms/Dexter Units (except during Special Opportunity Hunts).
