It sprawls across a large area of sand pine scrub forest and is dotted with natural springs, lakes, and ponds where you can swim, canoe, fish, snorkel, and scuba dive. Stretch your legs along one of the many hiking trails that include the Salt Springs Observation Trail and the Yearling Trail, which access a natural sinkhole and the remains of homesteads dating from the 19th century.

Lake Norris is an impressive dark-water lake that supports a large population of osprey, with more than 100 active nests recorded in the cypress trees that surround its waters.
