Epping Forest is nestled on the banks of northeast Florida's St. Johns River. Epping Forest is home to Epping Forest Yacht Club and is considered one of the finest residential marnia communities in Florida First Coast. Members at Epping Forest Yacht Club enjoy a comprehensive range of exercise, fitness and sports programs in the newest and most luxurious facility in the area. Personalized fitness evaluations and training, health education, nutrition consultation, exercise instruction, group fitness classes including spinning and yoga, tennis programs, swimming, children's activities, and spa services are all offered at the 12,000 square-foot Fitness Center.
Epping Forest Yacht Club members benefit from their protected yacht basin on the scenic St. Johns River. This sheltered marina is located on one of the largest expanses of the river (more than three miles across) and faces due West, making for some incredible sunsets. Epping Forest Yacht Club is convenient to many Jacksonville landmarks, and boasts some of the finest sailing waters on the St. Johns River. Members can kick off the Jacksonville Jaguar football games at the Marina and dock at EverBank Stadium, then take a "Cat" walk via the river and join the exciting festivities downtown. Members can also relax on the Mariner's Deck, sipping a cocktail while watching a beautiful sunset on the St. Johns River.
Epping Forest contains the restored riverfront mansion of Alfred I. duPont and Jessie Bal duPont and is recognized in the National Register of Historic Places.
Purchased and restored in 1983 by Gate Petroleum, the Epping Forest Yacht Club is surrounded by lush formal English gardens.
