Private Spots for State Park

Some spots have creek access with good fishing in the back.

Party Camping

Sites are small and include a picnic table and charcoal grill. Fires are allowed, but there are no fire pits. Be careful during the summer some of the sites will flood. if you reserve early you can get a site by the river. There is a tube trail that will take you to the put in and take out for tubing.

Great getaway from the City

This campground is private, but small. The lake is great for fishing and is filled with sunfish and bass. There is a boat ramp, and a fishing dock. The boat ramp made getting the kayak in and out of the lake easy. Each campsite has a picnic table and fire pit. Sites are first come first serve, but I have never see it full.

Private Site near the water!!

Each campsite is private and has it's own picnic table and fire pit. Trails from the campground lead down to the water. Depending on the water levels there are usually people kayaking through the white water. This is the perfect quick getaway from the city. Sites are first come first serve.

Private & Quiet

We stayed in the spring, and the weather was great. So many things to do in the Ocala National Forest. This campground wasn't crowded. All sites have a drive up pad, picnic table, and firepit. Toilets, but not showers. Cheap sites, and first come first serve.

Camping under the oaks right next to the beach

The greenery on the island is beautiful. There are a lot of trails, and shoreline to explore. The island has wild horses, and a lot of southern history. Be sure to pack light, and don't leave anything in the car. Once you get to the island you can use the carts provided to haul all of your stuff to your campsite. They also have bikes available to rent.

Beach Campground with indoor showers

Tent campsites are nice, but close together. Each site has a picnic table and firepit. The campground also has a lot of RV sites. The restrooms were really nice, with large showers, and washer and dryer. You can walk to the beach access, or drive to a larger beach access a short distance away. There were a lot of deer that ran close to the campground.

Private Campsite with your own Dock!

This campground has 2 dock sites. We stayed at Dock Site 2 in May. The site has a place to launch kayaks or a canoe. All sites are pet friendly. There are multiple hiking trails, and plenty of places to fish. Dock Site 2 had water on 2 side of the site, and had a steady breeze during our whole visit. Our site had multiple picnic tables, a fire ring, and a charcoal grill. Sites are reserved well in advance, especially for the weekends so book early.

BEAUTIFUL Views from most sites

This campground has 38 Tent and RV sites, 6 Tent only sites, and 4 Cabins. Most sites have amazing unobstructed views. It was $25 a night to tent camp for 2 people. We stayed at Site T-0, and the views were amazing. Our friends stayed at Site 1, and they also had amazing views. The campground is a short drive off the Blue Ridge Parkway. All sites have a fire ring and a picnic table. The campground had hot showers, and an outdoor sink. Call in advance to reserve a site, this place books up fast.

Private Quiet Campground

This campground is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, close to Cherokee, and Maggie Valley. The sites are first come first service, which is great if you want to camp on a whim. No showers, but there are restrooms. This place is close to trails and there are plenty of waterfalls a short drive away. All sites have a tent pad, fire pit with grill, and picnic table. There is a larger picnic area next to the campground.
