Fort Lonesome is an unincorporated community, rural ghost town located in southeastern Hillsborough County, Florida, United States, 36 miles southeast of Tampa. Its location is also west of the Little Manatee River State Park. A sawmill briefly revived the area with a few houses and three stores in the early 1930s. It was short lived: a fire destroyed the mill and eventually the "town" deceased. Today, it's mainly a farming region.
Fort Lonesome is located at 27.7 degrees north, 82.1 degrees west (27.705, -82.146). The elevation for the community is 121 feet above sea level. This location is the intersection of State Road 674 (Ruskin-Wimauma Rd) & County Road 39S which is the site of a gas station and power sub station.
The community is served by Hillsborough County Schools.
