“North Marina”

One of the largest fresh water marinas in the southeastern United States, St. John’s Marina & Resort in DeLand, Florida, is situated on the 330-mile long St. John’s River, directly across from the Ocala National Forest. Famed for its bass fishing, St. Johns River is one of only 3 rivers in the nation that flows north and one of the “laziest” rivers in the world. Located only 30 miles from Orlando and 20 miles from Daytona Beach, St. John’s Marina enjoys spectacular seclusion and beauty making it an ideal escape from the busy lifestyle of the metropolitan city.

The marina sits across from the Ocala National Forest which is the second largest National Forest in Florida and covers approximately 607 square miles (1570 km²) in central Florida. The Forest (established in 1908) is the oldest national forest east of the Mississippi River and the southernmost national forest in the continental U.S. Offering 50 acres of waterfront land and with 20 upland acres. St. John’s Marina is working with Volusia County to renovate the marina.
