Nice areas to explore, but more for RV's then primitive

We camp here (primitvely) when we want to bring our dogs. It is an RV campsite, but we camp with our tents and explore the area. It is just around the corner from lots of trails and access to Silver Lake. Not as secluded, but good enough for the family and our dogs. We go in the off season when not so many people are traveling in their RV's so it isn't as crowded.

Simple but still a good time

This little island is fun if you're a boater wanting to hang out in the water or look for shells. There is not much to this island as you can see the entire island no matter where you are standing. It is pretty popular so if you aren't into crowds or making new friends, you may want to stay at home or around you boat floating with family & friends or reading a good book.

My favorite primitve site, but no pets allowed

I love this place! Even though you can't bring your dogs here (Cypress Glenn you can - it's just down the road, but not as secluded and more for RV's). There are a few group campsites here and some side by side, but most of the sites are secluded with dense forest in between each site. Tent camping only, with a picnic table, fire ring and water faucet. You have a bath house you can get to by walking and it has hot water in the fall and winter months. You are right near the Withlacoochee river and there are lots of trails to walk around and visit. You have some walk up sites (2) and the others you will need to reserve ahead of time. Love the wildlife around here. We don't have the time to travel as far as we would like

Good Time - Not real private

We love to primitive camp and with our dogs. You can do both of these hear without a problem. The only thing is that the campsites we stayed at are not secluded enough for what I like. There is no real divider between campsites next to you or straight across. BUT for someone who likes ot be a little more secluded, I still did enjoy our time here. It forced us to mingle a bit and we met some lovely people. Our dogs barked a bit only because they saw other people and pets they wanted to say hey to. The people we met here showed us a great trail you can hike on that brings you to some awesome caves, yes in Florida, that you could explore in. So all in all it was a win for us!
