    Hi, plan on a short camping trip in Central FL next week or so (not sure) and would like to get some suggestions on a few interesting places to visit in the area. Not a dual sport trip, but some light off hwy would be nice... great to have some GPS coordinates if available.

    Thanks!

    If you are going to be on your KLR then I would suggest Lake DeLancy. Location is few miles north of Salt Springs.
    Best route or nearest paved road is SR19 then ride west.

    Keep in mind, this is hunting season, so the camping area may have a lot of hunters walking around w/ guns, so don't get freaked out. Most hunters that I've encountered are very bike friendly & it would be wise just to stay on the major hard pack back roads.

    Excellent, thanks. I am also a hunter so I get those guys. Agreed, staying on major hard pack is essential... stay out of the back woods (especially early in the morning or late in the evening) or run the risk of being shot at for spooking a deer out of someone's gun sites!
