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. Tiger Bay State Forest 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.
Rima Ridge Road, Indian Lake Road
, and Gopher Ridge Road
are the three entrances to Tiger Bay State Forest. Rima Ridge Road has an entrance to Tiger Bay State Forest on the very north side of the forest, right off FL-40. Rima Ridge Road is located on the east side of Tiger Bay State Forest and is the longest road in the forest. It is an easy drive that travels through lush green trees on a well-maintained trail suitable for any car, truck, or SUV. Rima Ridge Road is the main road that connects to Bennett Field Campground and Tram Road Equestrian Area Campground.
