Love this place !

Small,quiet, and out of the way in the middle of the Withlacoochee State Forest. Only 27 sites with water and electric and a dump station on the way out. All sites have fire pit with grill, picnic table and level cement pad. We had a large beautiful oak on our site. Lots of hiking and hunting if you want it. Way out in the forest yet near to town. A campground for tents or RV. They have a clean, well maintained bathroom and recycling at the trash house. Fenced and gated (I assume to keep pets and people safe from the wildlife). Kinda sketchy cell service. I only wish we had more time here. A change of plans left only one night. And I was unable to get reservations to extend our stay for longer. So plan well ahead of time.

Swampland

Hot with skeeters the majority of the year, cold overnight in the winter. All kinds of little critters in the woods and access to hikes and many gators.

We stated a weekend in December, 2020.

Started at site 73 (Lakeview Loop) for one night and switched to site 26. They recently cleared out the tree behind site 73 and our spot was bare. And no view but some power lines. But it is the best loop for bigger RVs. We have a tiny camper and much preferred the "Turkey Oak" Loop. Mike Roess campground is beautiful place, we just got the worst spot to start. Site 26 was beautiful. Lots of trees. Private on one side. Our favorite spots are, in this order, 25, 18, 29, 31, 33, 35, 4, 24, 22, 21, 33, 19, 20, 13, 15, 16. #68 through to 71 (68 and 71 are our favorites in that loop) in the Lakeview loop have a nice view of the Lake. MOST have water and electric hookup. Bathrooms are super clean with Showers! Beautiful moss covered trees throughout the grounds and some historic buildings on site. I believe the rent canoes for the lake too! They sell firewood at $7.00 a bundle but you need exact change. We are going back next month and staying with some friends. Great Weekend!

Great state park

We stopped for just one night on our way to Georgia, it was very clean. They sold firewood by the entrance (cash only, keep that in mind). All sites have a little trail to the showers/restrooms. We did not get to do the trail to the bridge but that just leaves more stuff to do when we come back. We stayed at site 49. Dump station was clean and convenient since there are no sewer hookup.

Great quite spot

Overall, a great place to get away from city lights, noise, etc. It is about 1-1 1/2 miles off main road. Be mindful and take your time on the dirt road leading to the campgrounds. It can be very ruff during certain times of the year.

The main camping area is large. The sites themselves are spacious. The sites have water, and power hook up. There is 1 main dump area with 2 dump stations. The bathhouse is clean and has hot water and showers.

If you own a horse these campgrounds have a stable to house your animals while you stay. I believe there are 2 trails just for horseback riding. Speaking of animals no other animals are allowed because of the horses.

If you enjoy hiking, biking, or off roading. There is 2,600 acres of off-road trails for motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle enthusiasts. During the day you may hear some of the “off roaders” come thought the camping area to use the bathhouse as it is the the closest thing to use. Also keep in mind during certain times a year you will hear gun fire because of the near by hunting areas. Nothing crazy though.

Other then the above list things at the camping area there is no other entertainment, playgrounds… etc. So what you bring is what you got.

We have enjoyed our time here and have been a few times now. If you lucky enough to stay during clear night skies…all the stars light up the area and it is very nice.

Old Florida History

Small charming campground along the Santa Fe River where it sinks into the underground system and rises at the next state park called River Rise. Sand/dirt roads to the RV/tent camping loop, with pretty tight turns and sharp entrances to rather short sites. Lots of screening trees between sites make for narrow parking of your RV with lots of branches to watch out for, but it is very deeply wooded and lovely.

It was during a cold snap in early December when we were there for 3 days, and it was packed with both tent and RV campers. There is a bathhouse with restrooms in the center of the loop. Note: some men tent camping used the bushes around their site for a urinal - we know this because when we pass by the one way loop to go sightseeing or hiking, they were using it in plain sight, more than once.

Very fine trail and very nice if primitive campground. Would stay again.

Back to old Florida

I have vivid memories of this park from my childhood. It was great being able to go back after so many years. This park is a wonderful hidden gem that you will most definitely enjoy. The park is broken into three loops and some primitive camping mixed in. Some small trails. Plenty of wildlife from deer, fish, birds, and if you visit in the winter, manatees are everywhere. There is a swimming area at the spring where you can dive. Kayak and canoe rentals are available at the snack house. We stayed in spot 19 which was perfect for our rig at 30’ overall. Nice privacy between spots. Highly recommend! Pros: Quiet. Privacy. Nature. Hiking and Kayaking Cons: No cell service. Weird RV waste hookups that stick out of the ground more than 12” in some areas making it difficult to hook up for smaller rigs. There is a dump station available though.

Small but nice

This is a relatively small, privately owned RV campground just off of I-75 in northern Florida. We felt that it was a little pricey at $40 (with a Good Sam discount) for its location. The sites all felt a bit narrow and it appears that there are a number of full-timers living there. The bathrooms were very clean with hot showers but only two sinks worked in the men’s room.

Breathtaking area to explore!

Amazing state park to visit. We recommend staying at least 1 week to envelope yourself in the pristine wilderness Florida has to offer. First of all, you won't get much of a phone signal out here. During our stay we had to drive to Cheifton once in awhile to get phone messages and emails. The campsites are beautiful and have a good amount of vegitation separating you from your neighbors. We camped here in our motorhome and had adequate clearance for our roof and we were able to get around the turns in the road well without hitting any trees. There are times that it's a tight squeeze though. 

We had the opportunity to kayak, the spring is beautiful and very clear, lots of fish and wildlife to experience.

We're looking forward to a future visit.

Good camping

The camping is a little close but we still had a great time. I also liked how the bathrooms were pretty close. Electricity and water at the sites. Trails out there are awesome.
