Rodman campground provides optimal access to some of Florida’s finest freshwater fishing.
The 9,500 acre Rodman Reservoir is perennially rated in the Top 10 Trophy Bass Lakes in Florida by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The 67-site Rodman Campground is located approximately 9 miles southwest of Palatka off of State Route 19 on Rodman Dam Road.
The bathrooms and showers were clean. There wasn’t a lot to do in this area, we did try fishing in the lake adjacent to the campground, but didn’t catch anything. The campsites are surrounded by trees and large.
We first stopped there as a one night layover. Lots of trees and well maintained restrooms. Didn't get a chance to but lots of fishing in area. Dont take the dirt road heading south out of park past dam. Good quiet destination spot.
Closely gathered tent camp sites, without water or electric at the site. Water is stationed within walking distance, tastes weird. Nonpotable?Clean sites. Bath house with hot water, boat ramp for large and small boats. Current is very fast for kayaking. Go tot he dam instead which offers World renowned fishing. Lots of alligators. Go to Rodman damn for the fishing and quiet waters to kayak in. A minagerie of wildlife is available to view. No phone service. Dog friendly camping. Isolated. Bring what you need.
This campground is very clean. It has some waterfront sites all are pretty decent size. A good fishing area as well as fishing at the dam. Easy trip to the springs to cool off too. Smack in the middle of a Ocala National Forest.
I have been coming here for as long as I can remember. There is lot of site and a clean shower and bathhouse. Pleanty of places to fish from and make sure you bring your boat or kayak since there is a boat launch. There is good wildlife viewing lots of gators and birds of all kinds. Also the Florida National trail goes right past here so you can also go hiking as well.
We had the maiden voyage of our new camper for the first time. All systems checked out, AC, hot water system, plumbing and electric. ALL systems ago. Even pulling it with our trailblazer was ok. Heres a short video of what we did other than the checklist of the Trailer. This was at Rodman Campground in Palatka READY FOR ANOTHER ADVENTURE
By the Rodman's damn and Oklwahaha river great primitive camping and hunting. Check out nearby sites. Test your camping skills. No cell reception.
