Currently a Very Poor attraction, which is just a set of newly built fences and a building site. The signs offer the promise of something worth seeing, but the reality is awful. Having bothered to go to see it we found the entrance just boarded...More

Visited their website, sounded interesting, so I drove out to see it. It was closed. Shame the website didn't indicate this. Wasted time, wasted gas, wasted effort.

There are a lot of "out of the way" places in Florida that are very rich in history and I enjoy hearing and seeing them for myself, it makes history more "alive".

If you are interested in Florida history, and are in the Ocala area with some time to kill, this is worth stopping by. A replica of a Nineteenth Century wooden fort, and a visitor's center with an interpretive movie with some of the history correct.

Take a step back in Ocala history and take a walk through the Fort King historic site. Although the fort reconstruction is not complete, it is worth a trip there to see the current state of reconstruction. Historic narrator is there at specified times. Recommend.
