Starkey’s Campground has everything you could want or need. Friendly staff, plenty of critters, and beautiful trails to walk.
Campsite #9 has so far been my most favorite spot here. It’s VERY spacious (could easily fit 5 large tents here) and the back of the site has a trail that leads directly to The McNeil Homestead. If you’re looking for a bit of a spook, I highly suggest walking this at night time.
This campsite is the only one that has a turning grill on the fire pit, so you won’t have to bring any cooking gear.
Great place to camp, especially site # 9.
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.
There are normal drive in sites and primitive hike-in sites.
Hiked in the mile or so to the primitive sites -- pack everything you need in. HELLA skeeters in the woods, bring high DEET spray. We went after it had rained and about a quarter of the trail was basically a mudpit. We were the only ones out there, which was great!
Canoe or kayak down the river is a must do! Gators, turtles, lots of birds and all downstream so pretty lowkey paddle.
Love everything about this park. It was gorgeous, clean, spacious, friendly, and so fun. We didn’t go check out the amenities really, it was too cold. But, taking a boat to the magic kingdom adds to the magic of the park. My dog loved the dog park. We went at Christmas time and everyone’s campsite was all decorated with blow up and Disney and festive Christmas lights. We don’t have any children but still felt the magic of it. I’d totally recommend staying there if you’re in Orlando and wanting to go to Disney.
Disney magic plus camping… what else can I say. Great facilities great atmosphere. Only negative is lack of fires being allowed.
What’s there to say…. It’s Disney it the woods. You can Tent, RV or rent a Cabin. Of course there are different levels of sites . $,$$,$$$… and so on. All sites have FULL hook up. Water, power, and sewer. NO open top fires. You must have an approved fire pit with a top to stop the Ambers from flying away. NO exceptions. The place is huge and I highly recommend a bike or golf cart to get around. Both can be rented but at a price.
You can just stay at the campgrounds because there is tons to do. We have stayed there many time and never went to the parks and still got the Disney feel and treatment. There are a couple restaurants to eat at. 2 pools and one is better then the other. They do nightly shows with characters meet-n-greets at NO CHARGE! I believe it was Chip and Dale. They have a FULL marina where you can hang out at the beach, rents boats, fishing trips, etc…at a cost of Course.
There is a pond/river running thoughout the camp grounds. You can fish(fee) and rent Canoes. Nice little adventure that anyone can navigate.
There is an are kinda like a petting zoo. And so much more. Overall a great “Disney”very kids friendly place for the family.
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.
we spent 8 nights here and as you would expect, Disney does it right! clean, quiet, so many amenities you cannot do them all! we had probably one of the worst sites in the campground, right in the front of one of the loops and on a corner with no real privacy. it wasn't an issue for us but its something to watch out for when you pull in. great pool and pond to fish or boat in.
The park is awesome. Really enjoyed the springs and kayaking. The camp site was nice with a pit and grill on site. Only complaint I have was that we’re near the airport and heard a lot of planes flying by overnight. Also heard loud cars in the area. Other than that, I’d definitely come back. Staff and rangers were so pleasant, polite, and very informative.
The 750 acre Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort has 847 campsites and 363 cabins(moderate level resort rooms). Campsite fees range from$75 to$189 per night and cabins from$364 to$568 per night. We booked early on their website for our full hookup campsite(50amp electric, water, sewer and cable) https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/campsites-at-fort-wilderness-resort/ If you have difficulty making reservations for sequential nights, check to see if one night at a time is available and then call customer service about 2 weeks prior to your arrival. They are more than happy to ensure your reservation reflects the full number of nights in a single campsite. Disney does not allow you to select your site in advance, instead they assign you a site based on a purchased tier. At check-in you can provide a few preferred sites and they may be able to accommodate your request based on availability. Each loop has inner sites(camper angled toward the road) and outer sites(camper angled away from the road). We prefer the privacy of the outer loops; this gives us more space to enjoy nature. As Fort Wilderness has thousands of campsites, we recommend using either a bike or golf cart as transportation to the outpost(store), restaurants, pools, playgrounds and horse ranch. There are no parking spaces for cars at any of the amenity locations. To get to the theme parks, Disney transportation is a must with the option for bus to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom or boat to Animal Kingdom.
