Are you looking for recreational property in the middle of nowhere? This has it all: lots of trees, wild deer, turkey, and boar! Perfect for weekend get-a-ways, where no one will ever bother you (except for the wildlife). Situated directly on a logging road near Salyers Road. Located deep in the Florida Green Swamp. Take a drive out into the deep country, and see for yourself! Peace and quiet, but still close enough to civilization.
- It looks like there is access to the property via an unnamed logging road, you will need to determine the ease of access yourself. Florida law specifies that legal access is guaranteed to EVERY property and legally there is no such thing as “landlocked” property. However, some properties have more challenging physical access than others. Some properties you can drive right up to in a Smart Car. Others require a vehicle with 4 Wheel Drive, and some are only accessible by ATV. I have not visited this property in person, so I cannot tell you how easy it is to access. Please either buy this as a buy-and-hold investment or check it out yourself and see if the access is suitable for your needs.
- The property is 5 acres in unincorporated Lake County. The front 3 acres are zoned “vacant residential unbuildable with value”. I spoke with Lake County Zoning/Planning and it sounds fairly easy to change that zoning to “Vacant Residential Buildable” if you ever wanted to build a house on the property. If you are buying this property with the plans of building a structure you should look into that before purchasing.

Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve
Talk about space to explore and be left alone! The Green Swamp Region of Florida is approximately 560,000 acres, that is roughly 900 square miles! Almost as big as the entire state of Rhode Island!
See Below for a Description of the Green Swamp from the Southwest Florida Water Management District Website:
The area is an ideal place where visitors, from school groups to master birders, can visit and explore some of central Florida’s flora and fauna found in a natural state that has had little modification by man. The area contains a variety of different habitat types with a wide diversity of plant life. These types include, but are not limited to, sandhills, flatwoods, oak hammocks, river swamp and cypress ponds. The characteristic cypress ponds that dot the landscape can only be found in central Florida. This intact ecosystem attracts many types of wildlife. The preserve is an excellent place for bird watching and observing other wildlife from mammals, amphibians, reptiles and butterfly species.
As a plateau above surrounding areas, the Green Swamp region is an important physiographic feature of Florida. Its 560,000 acres of wetlands, flatlands and low ridges are bounded by prominent sandy ridgelines. Rainwater drains across the surface to create the headwaters of four major rivers: the Withlacoochee, the Ocklawaha, the Hillsborough and the Peace. Rainwater also trickles down through the soil to replenish the Floridan aquifer system, the primary source of drinking water for most Floridians. Because the Green Swamp region is elevated above outlying areas and the underground aquifer rises very close to the land surface, the region functions as the pressure head for the aquifer. Protecting the Green Swamp is vital to protecting the quality and quantity of Florida’s water supply. Recognizing the statewide significance of this area, the state of Florida in 1974 designated 322,000 acres of the Green Swamp region as an Area of Critical State Concern.
Visitors can hike over the vast road network or hike the Florida National Scenic Trail, which bisects the area. Along the trail and road system in the area, observers will notice a land that has been preserved to keep its natural beauty. This is an illustration of central Florida’s natural heritage.
The District began purchasing the area in the early 1970s and is still carrying on acquisitions to protect the area’s natural uniqueness, which will benefit current and future residents of southwest Florida.
Van Fleet Trail
Van Fleet Trail Description from State Park Website
Officially designated as part of Florida’s Statewide System of Greenways and Trails and is one of Florida’s most rural, paved rail-trails.
Also designated as a National Recreation Trail®, the Van Fleet State Trail runs through the Green Swamp, the headwaters for some of Florida’s most popular paddling destinations including the Withlacoochee, Hillsborough and Peace rivers.
Landscapes include the river swamp, bottomland forest, pine flatwoods, former citrus lands and cattle ranches. With only one curve in its 29.2 miles, you can choose to go slow and view the wildlife or enjoy it at a brisk pace. An equestrian trail parallels the length of the paved path. The trail has excellent wildlife viewing opportunities, especially between Green Pond Road and Bay Lake Road.
Hunting is allowed in the Green Swamp and Richloam wildlife management areas, found on the western side of the northern half of the trail. The trail remains open during hunting seasons.
The trail is 29.2 miles long and has a paved surface eight feet wide.
