An island of shade amid a broad, winding grassland, the Hopkins Prairie Campground is a seasonal destination for campers looking to get a bit off the beaten path. It sits right along the Florida Trail and offers opportunities for fishing and birding along miles of prairie shoreline.
Lovely campground, though fairly basic. Bathrooms fire pits and picnic tables. Beautiful view of the prairie, not many people.
We stayed in the spring, and the weather was great. So many things to do in the Ocala National Forest. This campground wasn't crowded. All sites have a drive up pad, picnic table, and firepit. Toilets, but not showers. Cheap sites, and first come first serve.
So we came here on christmas since are plans fell though. So far this is one of the best sunsets in a campsite so far, You have a 360 veiws of all the prairie. The Florida trail is goes right trough the front. Watch out for the sandhill cranes they like to venture in your site. Also please please be BEAR AWARE.
This is an amazing campground with tons of Spanish moss, just beautiful. Toilets available, no water. Dogs are allowed.
