The best park

We paid for a monthly sport for 860 a month including electric and cable. By far the nicest rv resort we have been to, has a lake and swimming area with a water jungle gym. We loved the restaurant and I actually ended up working there for a bit. Front desk staff could have been nicer… A couple of them. Also we put our name on the list to be moved and we were there for a while on a spot near the free way that we didn’t like. We never got moved and other did so that was frustrating. Shaded spot was nice. We loved that they have trash pick up daily right at your spot. They have dog walking bag stations with trash cans. The bathrooms are outdated but the were clean most of the time. Laundry room was a little hot, and little pricy. The part that we didn’t like was the side of town The Flamingo Resort is on a dangerous city, the Walmart was not safe at night. So it’s good as long as you stay in the gated rv resort and then drive to the nicer parts of Jacksonville.

First Trip Here

This was our first camping trip to O’leno State Park. We’ve camped at several Florida state parks and this one ranks up toward the top. We camped in site 49 in the Dogwood loop. We were a bit concerned about getting our 32’ Imagine into the site just based on previous reviews and the camp loop road being very narrow. However, we had no issues getting in. Might have taken a bit more adjusting to get it right where we wanted it, but it wasn’t difficult by any means. The Dogwood loop is very wooded and feels very secluded. Site 49 was very spacious and shaded. The only negative aspect of camping in the dogwood loop is that you are about 1.5 miles from the river / park area, which is where almost all of the trails originate and where all of the things to see and do are. The park is very clean and well kept. We saw deer every evening on our drive down to the river along the main road, but no deer in the campground or any wildlife for that matter aside from birds. It did seem a bit odd that there were no raccoons. We left our trash out the first two nights by mistake, but it was ever messed with. Would definitely recommend this park if you like quiet and secluded camping where you can relax and unwind.

Second time

Took the kids camping for the second time and loved it

FUN!

This place is ALL about a GOOD TIME! We got there May1st, the place was relatively empty, but then came Cinco De Mayo weekend and it was amazing how many people came in. We sat back and watched. We had a great site for people watching just up from the Spring and  the tube run. I can not say enough about the bathhouses, there were MANY of them and ALL were well maintained and appointed. We got a kick out of going to a different one every day! HUGE camp store. Deli/café on property, ice and wood for sale, blow-up station for your personal tubes. Staff was great and helpful. Tubing was a BLAST and canoeing run was to!  Beautiful springs, many to see! Thoroughly enjoyed this experience.  I cant for the life of me find my pics of this amazing place. A little more pricey, but worth it. We were there for a 5 days.

way down upon....

We had a wonderful time at this CG! 5 star bath-houses. Great Canoeing down the beautiful Suwanee.  We went in May and really had no bugs. The site was a little small, but was fine and shaded. Lots of HUGE Class A's in and out… fun to watch! Sneaky squirrels that will take your half a burger while you try to set up camp, we had a great laugh about that!

Great music venue

This is a great music venue. The sites are extremely close together and very open. They do have equestrian camping. Our site had full hookups water electric and sewer. There is a bar and restaurant on site with live music which was great. There is a swimming pool, a treehouse and cabins you can rent, a fully stocked camp store, golf cart rentals. There are some permanent units for full-time living in this park. Park is very large and known for music festivals.

Good camp, great trails

Stayed site #48 on dogwood loop. Sites were on the small side. Magnolia loop sites looked better and larger. Bathrooms were centrally located and clean. There are many trails to walk in this park. We did some fishing on the river. You can launch kayaks and paddle santa fe river which is excellent! Sites include table, fire ring/grill. Park is within 10-15 minutes to grocery and restaurants. Park has some great info on the CCC. With a small museum.

This is our spot when heading out of Fl. Off of I75. We love this park with great trails on the Suwanee river. Clean RRs

Camping after Thanksgiving.

This little campground was so nice! The young lady that checked us in was one of the nicest hosts we could have asked for. Her name was Kelly. There were other staff members there that said they came to camp several years ago and liked it so much they stayed on as staff members. Everything was clean and well maintained. We didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy the pool but it was inviting. The bathrooms were clean and had heat! You wouldn’t think they would need heat in Florida but that weekend they did. Thank you very much and we will be back.
