Peaceful Campground with walkable springs access

This campground is super quiet and nestled in Florida cow country. The bathrooms are new and very well kept. The center sites seem more level than the outer ring of sites. We started at site 26 and moved to site 68 because we couldn’t level out on the sandy ground.

WiFi connection is quite good and you are able to stream Netflix and Prime tv.

The best part of this park is the short trail to Hart Springs directly from the campground. It takes you through shaded Florida swamp and marsh and opens up on the Hart springs recreation area. Unfortunately Hart springs was closed while we were there due to flooding and construction but should be open for spring 2019, but it looks like an incredible swimming spot with ample space, tables and pavilions. A short boardwalk walk at the springs takes you out to the shores of Suwannee river.

Walmart supercenter is your closest grocery in chiefland, a 20-25 minute drive.

DON’T MISS stopping at Dakotah Winery for a free tasting and a bottle of their sweet wine for sangria. 19 98 country restaurant has amazing wings and even better southern hospitality.

Shady campground with tons of amenities

I didn’t actually stay overnight here, but biked over from the nearby Hart Springs campground. Nice facility with fully shaded spots among Florida forest. There were a number of unmarked buildings, but upon researching it looks like a covered pool and clubhouse. The spring swimming area was lovely and clear and no crowds. Seems like a nice place to stay for a fun, activity filled getaway.

Clean & Convenient pit stop off of I75

This campground isn’t super remarkable (lots of RV’s in close proximity, noise from the interstate). But it’s bathrooms/showers are brand new and kept very clean. Great pit stop for a few days before we head into the mountains. You’ll find permanent residents here as well as stopping-they campers. Pull through sights are convenient. Horse stables and a goat pasture are also on property. The town of Perry and Warner Robins have all amenities you could need .

In the heart of Orlando and you don’t even know it

You can’t get more centrally located that bill Frederick. Located In metro west, this park is close to both the theme parks, and a commutable distance to north Orlando. The campground is at the back of the park up against the lake shore making it quieter than you would think for being so close to the expressway. The bathrooms and shower leave something to be desired. They could be cleaner and the shower drains tend to back up but everything works and is serviced daily. Only campground downside is there are no fire pits by each site. Open fire is only aloud at the grills in another area of the park.

This park offers every recreation in the book: boating, fishing, biking, hiking, frisbee golf, wildlife watching (petting farm), jungle gyms, horse boarding, grilling spots, swimming pool. There’s something here for everyone

Secluded hilly park with immaculate facilities

Secluded campground in natural Florida. Hookup sites were well kept and at the end of the park so there was no thru traffic. To get to the hookup sites it Is an 8-10 minute drive from park entrance. Keep that In mind when running errands (making that drive multIple times a day can be annoying). But the benefit Is a quiet campground. Amenities are very clean. Most sites have 10-30 feet between them. Sunsets are not to be missed here. Lake Louisa area and Clermont is the only hilly area of Central Florida. The pine forests here make you think you might not be in Florida. Great park for people who want Natural Florida without the tourist traps and beach towns.
