Geneva Wilderness Area

Entrance Sign Kiosk


Located in east Seminole County, Florida near the town of Geneva. 


From exit 81 on I-95, go west on State Road 46 until you reach the town of Geneva (about 16 miles). Turn left and head south on County Road 426 (Geneva Dr) for about 2 miles. Park entrance will be on your left.


Geneva Wilderness Area has several miles hiking trails. A 1.5 mile red blazed loop trail will take you out and around the lake. If you follow the yellow blazed trail (about 1 mile long), it will take you all the way to the Flagler Trail in Little Big Econ State Forest. There are number of unmarked trails available as well. Some of these can be flooded during the rainy season but offer excellent views of the lake and neighboring swamps.

Trail Sign Horse Trail

The trails are the multi-use type, meaning horses, bicyclists and hikers share the same trail.

Chapel Sign H.E. 'Buddy' Long Memorial Chapel

Strange as it might seem there's a chapel located along the trail near the lake shoreline.  Great spot to sit down, relax and enjoy the view.

Latrine Sign Latrine

Something you don't normally see in a wilderness area are huge latrines setup along the trail. They are fully equipped with toilets and sinks with running water. Beats having to dig a hole.


Camping is only available to group organizations.  For reservations contact (407) 665-7291.  There are two campsites available: one on the south shore of the lake and the other located near the park entrance. Each is equipped with showers, benches, fire rings and tables. Precut firewood is also available.
