Tiger Bay State Forest is located in east-central Florida and spans about 30,000 acres. Tiger Bay State Forest got its name because of the large wetland that supplies Daytona Beach, DeLand, and other local municipals with water. It is home to two natural lakes named Indian Lake and Scoggin Lake, and multiple other natural and manmade ponds. These bodies of water bring all types of wildlife; fish, gators, bears, deer, panthers, birds, and insects to the area. Tiger Bay State Forest allows visitors to take in the sights, smells, and sounds of nature by camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, boating, and hunting.
Indian Lake Road, Rima Ridge Road
, and Gopher Ridge Road
are the three entrances to Tiger Bay State Forest. Indian Lake Road is located on the east side of Tiger Bay State Forest and brings travelers to Indian Lake and a recreation area. Indian Lake Recreation Area greets visitors with a relaxing pier onto the lake, covered and uncovered picnic tables, grills, trash cans, and an outhouse. The drive on Indian Lake Road is easy, calm, and accessible to all cars, trucks, and SUVs.
