Fort Lonesome is a rural area located in southeastern Hillsborough County, Florida, United States, 36 miles (58 km) southeast of Tampa. 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" disappeared. Today, it is 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 (37 m) above sea level. This location is the intersection of State Road 674 (Ruskin-Wimauma Rd) and County Road 39S, the site of a gas station and power substation.
The community is served by Hillsborough County Schools.
