One night quick vacation. Grilled out at the river and enjoyed the camping.
Camp host was very helpful with the late check in when an unexpected weather front moved through and we had to get off the road. Entry and exit was fast and easy. Didn't get to explore park bc we were heading home for Christmas, but after reading pamphlets, we will stay here next time we are down this way. Very clean and well thought out bathrooms, clean and level campsites, clean park, friendly staff and plenty of wildlife. :)
3 families camping over 2 nights at O'leno to enjoy Ichetucknee Springs. We had kids in age range from 18 months up to 11. We tent camped & stayed in the Magnolia Loop which had section fencing for each lot. There was a nice playground & many learning spots set up. The park says you can swim at your own risk, but it looks like harmful creatures are in the water without any proper fencing.
This place doesn't have much for amenities, there is just bathrooms and water, however this place was awesome to canoe and kayak down the river, there was even a nice little swimming area that the kids were able to splash around in. If you love playing and recreating in the water this is a pretty good place to go
Located along the Sante Fe River is this little gem of a park. The "old town" of O'Leno building still stand in memory to this short lived location. There is a wonderful swimming hole roped off the side of the river. Great location for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, history buffs and if you cross the bridge over to the trails you get an even better/wilder experience on the trails!. The loop furthest from the main gate I have found to be better with less of a grade on the individual sites. I have never camped there when it was full but sites are not too small. Lots of deer can be seen in the early morning grazing between the campground and "the town". Bathrooms are not new but clean and there are full hookups available.
This is a campground I have been to many times in the winter. It has water and electric hookups as well as a central playground and bathrooms. It is a short hike to the Santa Fe River and many trails that are not too strenuous. There are many historic buildings here to check out. Also, cabins if you don't have a camper. I would recommend this campground to any one who needs to get away quickly for some peace and quiet.
