Ocean Pond, Osceola National Forest
Olustee Beach Recreation Area is located off U.S. High 90 at Olustee. A lovely sand beach, cold showers, flush toilets, drinking water, boat ramp, picnic tables, and a covered shelter and grills are available for day use only. Visitors find fishing and hiking most enjoyable. A barrier-free pier and picnic shelter welcome the handicapped. Boaters love to water-ski or enjoy fishing the large pond for largemouth bass, bluegill, and speckled perch.

See what Ocean Pond was like 100 years ago as you stroll through a shady pine and cypress canopy along a short handicapped accessible interpretive trail. Buzzing saws and steam locomotives of yesterday will come alive as you meander along the boardwalk leading to the edge of the lake.

Note: Fires are restricted to the grills provided. Camping is not permitted and there is no lifeguard. Swimming is prohibited at all boat ramps throughout the forest. Dogs must be on a leash and are not allowed into he beach area. Swimming is recommended at designated swim areas only.
