Hontoon Island Campground Trail is located near Deland, Florida. The trail is primarily used for hiking, camping, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
Directions from DeLand, FL: Take State Route 44 south for approximately 6 miles through a series of well-marked turns reaching the mainland parking area. Shuttles run back-n-forth to the boat access only island. Launching a private boat is permissible.
Great place to get away. Very quiet and peaceful. Good birding. Easy biking and walking trails. Lots of alligators.
Great trail for a beginner! Not a lot of hills, saw a few birds, lizards, & snakes. Informative visitor center. Looking forward to going back & camping for a few days. Check out this link: http://www.floridastateparks.org/hontoonisland/activities.cfm#22
