Always a nice camp with multiple access hike in points. Check for scheduled hunts, hunters do not like hikers even though Florida trail is open year round. 5 minute walk from river if you need drinking water. Make sure to filter and watch for gators.
We stayed at Quail Run for a weekend in October as it was close to my son’s lacrosse practice location… we were pleasantly surprised with the very nice site with full hook ups and cable. The park is secluded and away from highway noise. Very nice community center/hall/game room/activity center. Also close to the location are stores and restaurants.
We spent a night in Little Manatee River State Park, and were pretty happy with how easy it was to access the trails, canoe launch, playground and bathroom. We’ve spent time at various state parks and sometimes the trailhead is so far from camp it takes longer to get there than it does to hike it (exaggerating here but you know what I mean!). We could easily access all that we needed to keep busy, and better yet, took advantage of it!
Tons of birds, butterflies and great views of the stars. Few tent campers but still, everyone was respectful and quiet. We will definitely be back once the cooler months come around again!
This is one of the nicest campgrounds central Florida has to offer. Clean, well maintained, and friendly staff. They have daily activities at the rangers hut and go out of the way to keep the park on top shape. If you are one of the daring campers that camps in FL in the summer, there is not a lot of shade at the campsites yet.
We were lucky to get a last-minute reservation. The site (#45) was spacious, level, and clean. Easy to back a van into, but I'm not sure about a larger RV or a trailer. We could see the neighbors on either side, but the vegetation helps to provide some privacy. The bathrooms were clean, and the showers looked decent (we didn't use them). There's a wide lawn and path separating the site from the water, and the view of the water was limited, but there was a nice breeze. Surprisingly, we saw no mosquitoes. Be careful of the raccoons, though. They're pretty fearless and active in the daytime. We came back from biking and found one checking out our water hose. At night I saw some rats in the bushes, but they stayed away from us. Just make sure your food is inaccessible. Will definitely go back.
We hiked out about a mile along the Florida Trail and stayed for a night at the Gator Hole campsite. It was so peaceful, lots of space to explore (we had a 3 year old and two dogs!) and the symphony of Sandhill Cranes and Coyotes as the sun set was a memory I’ll never forget. If you can pack all of your gear and carry it out to this site, I highly recommend for any beginner (or expert really) because of its peaceful beauty!
Lots of things; lots of history, even several caves in the citrus part of the withlacoochee forest. Google trail 22 for the closest entrance.
We hiked out to the Backcountry site only to find someone there. We made a reservation days in advance, so this person was not supposed to be there. They weren't at the site for us to ask to leave, nor did we really feel comfortable doing so as two women. From the looks of the set up, it appeared as if the camper may be living there. The site is nice, but they clearly do not monitor who's there.
