Camping/bike trails in S. GA/N. FL?

Hey everyone I'm planning a mtn biking trip to S GA or N FL and was trying to find out if there are any trails that have campsites on premise or nearby? I know Santos does is FL but I want to venture out somewhere different. I'm looking for intermediate trails nothing to technical cause I'm bringing the wifey with me.
Thanks

Check out Hanna park in Jacksonville. It's right on the ocean, with beaches. It has a lake, with boats to rent. They rent cheap cabins, with a/c. And... there are miles and miles of mt. bike trails of all levels of difficulty.

Several of the Fl state parks have places to camp and off road bike trails. My husband and I rode the trail at Manatee Springs a month or so ago. The Springs are there as well as camping. Unfortunately when we went the trails were very rooted (is that a word) up by lots of feral hogs. We saw at least 20 of them and lots of deer also. The trail is nothing like Santos. Double track. It is near Fanning Springs

Also, O'leno State Park which is up near High Springs has camping and some off road single and double tracks. It was a nice ride.

This is a great site and you can look at the State parks by region.

Have fun!

I wouldn't say Hanna park has miles and miles of trails, but it is a pretty nice setup.
