This campground is 2 years old. The sites are huge, long, and all pull-throughs. Utilities were fine, Wi-Fi worked good, and the pool was clean and covered with a screen. Owners are ready to help with anything and invited us to a hot dog and marshmallow roast. Cedar Key is 30 minutes away and a fun place to visit. The only drawback is the dusty road base inside the park but there was little traffic while we were here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for a month in early spring. The park is very spacious, with lots of room between sites and many tall oaks providing some shade. Grounds are well kept and bathhouse was cleaned about once a week during our stay. Cable TV is optional for an extra $10, but channels were limited. The park has Wi-Fi, but it's not fast, and the owners use software to block movie downloads, which often affected other non movie-related sites. Owners are polite, but not very customer-centric. Toilet paper, paper towels were frequently empty, and we had to go "hunting" for our mail. (The mailboxes were rarely utilized). I commented on the Wi-Fi once, and was told to drive to the Carl's Jr. down the road. Park is about 10 minutes from basic shopping and a public boat launch into the Suwannee River. Very quiet stay, with only occasional traffic noise. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This park is located in a grove of water oaks and there are enough to make it very nice but not too many. The owners are very nice. The sites are very big. After seeing some of the other parks in the area, we decided to make this our base and drive to the areas we wanted to visit. The size of sites, the visual appeal, and friendly people made it a great base for our visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are dirt under just the right amount of trees. Most spacious sites we have ever seen. Great overnight or few day stop between Panhandle and west coast of FL. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great RV spot with the largest campsites we have been to. We had our 3/4 ton pickup and towing 37' RV and there was more room than we needed. Grounds are very neat, and hosts were very friendly. Only reason we didn't give it a 10 was due to the fact jacuzzi was not available during our stay. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
his is a true hidden jewel. The spaces are huge. I would say 80 feet + long and 40 feet between each. Lots of ancient live oak trees, concrete patio, picnic table. Each site has a fire ring and the wood is free and delivered. Escort to your site. Pool was heated and clean as was the spa. Restrooms and showers were clean. Yes it is out of town, but do you want peace and quiet or camping along the freeway. The monthly rate is $370 and that includes electric. Wi-fi worked great. The cable is fuzzy but OK. I would stay here again. The rate of $24 was the weekly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Let me state that this park was rated 8 only because of the location and area. This is a fairly new park which is basically in the middle of nowhere west central Florida. For us coming from the Tampa area it is a great midway point on our return home before taking the last leg home The facilities are clean and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The sites are large and fully equipped with easy acces. Good shade and open areas depending on your choice. Sites are hard packed dirt/gravel and actually very level. We stopped here on a Wednesday afternoon and it was quiet with about 10 other campers. As stated we gave this nice camp an 8 because there just is not much going on in this area for exdtended stays, but it is a great place for a one or two niter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, nice park. The owners go out of their way to help with what ever you might need. They also take you to your site. The trees are very tall, but still provide shade on lots of the sites. They supply free firewood. The sites were almost level and there was lots of space. Long pull-thoughs, with more than enough room. Hot tub was clean and hot. Pool and hot tub was enclosed. We didn't use the pool but it looked clean. Very clean restrooms and showers. We will go back when we travel though again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good and the bad. New park, not as shady as you may think; all the trees are trimmed very high, letting morning and afternoon sun in. Very nice owners, and spotless bathrooms and showers. They don't heat the pool; says " it costs to much". They only heat the hot tub when requested to. In previous reviews it says family friendly, but we were told it is adults only when we said we may come back with our grandkids.Please explain how that is family friendly. Maybe 20% full in winter. It looks like they need another year. Probably won't come back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had read a comment about this park being "New" so thought we would try it. Am I ever glad we did. The managers are the nicest folks you would ever want to meet. They will guide you to your site and, if you want, will help you hook up. FHU's. The park is about a year old and they are still upgrading it. HUGE campground, Lots of large trees, lots of space between sites, fire rings, Direct TV cable connection free, WIFI is free and it works. They will give you a code to enter on your computer. If you need more than one computer code, just ask, they'll gladly give you as many as you need, we needed 5. . They will even supply wood for that "campfire" that you might want. Very easy in and out. Our GPS would not allow us to enter the full address of the park but the manager had told me that the park was "North" of Old Town on Hwy 349 on the East side of the hwy. We will definitely return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time staying at this park. Thought I would check it out as am constantly looking for other places in the area to stay. Camp workers were very kind and answered all questions cheerfully. This is a new park, barely 1 year old, and it shows because everything looks new. Wonderful pool and clubhouse. Very large sites which are hard to find in the state of Florida. The only reason for not giving it a 10 is I am a very picky person and a 10 is almost impossible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staying here was a pleasant experience. The owner provides a wealth of information and can be found easily for any questions. There are miles and miles of great bike trails nearby. The campground is very clean and extremely quiet, a feature we really enjoy. There are several tall pine trees providing some dappled shade. The people are friendly the sites allow for plenty of room. The rate we paid reflects an Escapees discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is just a wee place on the property of the landowner and host. It is a great place to spend the weekend just to chill out in your coach, but it doesn't have a lot to offer other than a completely wonderful host who is more than attentive and so friendly. We met some very nice folks here. Although I wouldn't call it a destination, it is definitely worth an overnight--laid back, pet friendly, a few fulltimers. It has a very small library in the office, and some bathrooms and laundry area, but that is about all. Heard all kinds of wildlife at night! Lovely area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was very quiet. The owners are very friendly and take pride in their camp. It is not a destination RV Resort but is conveniently located near the many springs. Also very close to the Nature Coast Bicycle Trail. The water pressure was sufficient and the power was very good. Cable and WiFi worked very well. I would recommend this to anyone planning on exploring the area. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rustic campground with dirt roads and sand/grass sites. We were only there for an overnight at an electric/water site. Helpful, friendly owner. Campground was very neat and clean. Wi-Fi worked well, but cable quality was mediocre. We would stay here again. Rate was Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground. Quiet, safe and well run. Owner takes pride in his service. Sites are level. Good A/C power - 120 volts. Sites are sand/crushed shells. Very well located in northwestern and central part of state. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, very quiet park within an hour's drive of many things to do in this part of Florida. Fanning Springs, Manatee Springs, the Suwanee River, Gainesville, Cedar Key etc. Easy pull-throughs, good Wi-Fi coverage and cable. The owner is very accommodating and helpful. We stayed a week and would definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very quaint family-type park. The owner/operator was very friendly and showed us all the areas features. This park will be one of our favorites just for the friendliness. The shower and restrooms were extremely clean. The laundry needs some work. Everything in the immediate area was fun to explore. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Owner is a super nice owner and operator that is real helpful in steering you towards good food, things to do, and a great winery and vineyard. I gave them a nine because of my sewer being uphill, making it difficult to clean out. All in all, I think it is a great place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed one night in this park and it was quiet and peaceful. It is located enough off of US19 not to have any road noise. The park does have a few narrow roads but if you know how to drive your RV there is no problem, even with a toad, as we were. We were escorted back to our pull-through parking site and had no problem maneuvering into place. We also had no problem when we exited early the next morning. On your way out is a sewer dump and trash bin, which we found very convenient, since we chose a pull through site without a sewer hook-up. There are a lot of trees but we asked for, and got, a site where our satellite worked fine. The park also has cable TV. The Wi-Fi worked great. The parking site was hard packed grass and was level. The ground was dry so I can't comment about how the property would have been during a rainy period. We plan on using the park again when we are passing through this area on our way home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Access and exit roads are narrow. The bushes and trees need to be trimmed back a bit. The first 100 feet of so of interior road is paved but once you are inside the "gate" the road is bare packed sand and bumpy and rough. Nearly the whole campground is sand, but there are trees for shade. We reserved a site with 50 AMP by telephone, but when we arrived, the owner would not let us set up in a 50 AMP site, and we were told there was sewer but that isn't true. Only the permanent residents are able to hookup to the septic system, all others must use the dump on the way out. Cable TV is available and WI-FI also. The owner is friendly and helpful, escorts newcomers to the sites and helps park/back. The amenities are NOT great. The so-called clubhouse/office is a dilapidated old wood building that smells very musty and is tiny. Restrooms and showers are clean though dated. Fire ants have free range here and they are everywhere. Many of the pets in the park were allowed to run loose, though the park rules say otherwise. With a lot of work this could be a very nice park and it is close to many points of interest. There was plenty of room for our rig, but I would not consider returning here. After hours you use the exit to return to the park or you can't get in. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I rated this campground as an eight because the owner was very welcoming, the bathrooms and showers were very clean. The access in and out is just fine. The "clubhouse" is not really a clubhouse but rather a small wooden building which is very musty smelling and houses the registration office and the library. We would stay here again definitely because of the hands on friendly atmosphere and it is a very clean campground. The rate is the before taxes PA rate We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great cozy place with a small customer oriented staff. Escort to the site. Office is very helpful with things and places to see. Park is very well maintained by an Hands On Owner. We stopped here with another an RVer friend who is a fussy type of guy, and he was pleased with the accommodations as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is not bad for a night There are lots of trees. The site that we had was a bit on the narrow side. There was an escort to the site, which was a nice touch. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate for 30amp, water, Wi-Fi and cable TV. Cable TV is now included, but the rate jumped way up from a year ago. It was very quiet for this time of year, (rate increase)??? Not much around this area. Spent one night and moved on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would recommend this campground. It was extremely clean and well-kept. The owners are from Sweden and one of the staff members stated he runs a glove over every cabin before he allows another guest to rent it. The pool and bathrooms were extremely clean as well. It's a little off the path of convenience but I would recommend this campground to anyone. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
[ 5 / 10 ]
Rate was for Passport America, $10, +$1. cable, +.77tax. Cable had about 30 channels, + 2 HBO. We had a P/T w/30amp electric and water. Sewer dump on exit road, a slight problem if someone dumping and you want to get out, you can't get around and have to wait till they are done. This is a plain older park, but clean. They could use more grass. The roads are packed sand. The GPS that comes up for the park is off by about 20 miles. We just happened to see the park as we passed by it. We told the owner and he said he knew. He just failed to tell us when we called for a reservation. Verizon air card works well. In the area there are 2 springs where you can go and see manatees. Also 45 mile is Ceadar Key. We would stay here again for a few days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America $10 + $1 for Cable TV that had two HBO channels. We had a 30 amp P/T site with water & cable TV. Did not use the Wi-Fi, Verizon broadband was excellent. There is nothing fancy here, just a great value and really friendly people. Park might offend some, but not us. After coming in the entrance and registering, they then have you use the exit to come and go. Dump station is on the exit, so it is a weird setup. However, the traffic volume is low and it works. We would not have a problem coming back. Great park for couples with no kids, and for people just looking for some R n R. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This beachfront campground is administered by Dixie County within the Lower Suwanee National Wildlife Refuge. This is a breathtakingly beautiful place on a white sand beach, but apparently it is heavily used for local partying on the weekends, and as a result there is trash everywhere. We picked up multiple bags of trash during our 4 day stay. There is a bathroom with flush toilets and 1 shower that has hot water: not very clean. There is no potable water, WiFi, or cell phone reception. There is a dumpsite and a brand new fishing pier. Come with a good stock of water and groceries, because the nearest shopping is at least a 30 minute drive. The only noises here are the wild hogs rooting in the bush, and the tide splashing up on the beach. The fee quoted is for non-county residents; residents pay $10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflected Passport America rate for full hookups. This park was somewhat rustic but a pleasant change from the manicured sites we had been accustomed to. The park was clean and tidy with a pleasant small activity building. There were lots of paths and trails to walk and a paved bicycle trail was 4 miles away. The cable TV was marginal and we opted to use our antennae which provided a few more channels and a better picture. The water pressure was very low and we ended up using our RV water pump when showering. The park has 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. The dryer took 2 full cycles (on high) and the clothes were still damp so plan to wash on a day when the clothes can be hung out to dry. The pool was not heated. Wi-Fi was OK at the park hot spot. The staff were friendly and pleasant to deal with. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a rustic park. In our case, rustic is good. Sites are not paved. Water, electric, sewer all worked as expected. Cable TV left something to be desired. Management was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The pool closed at 6 pm. The river was 1/4 of a mile through the woods to reach a floating dock that was about 4 ft wide and maybe 8 ft long. Nothing for the kids to do at all. We stayed one night We will not be back. This is a park for the older folks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have traveled all the way from Montana to Florida and have stayed an campgrounds all the way down to the Florida keys. This is by far the nicest, quietest, and most private of all. We have enjoyed the grounds and the wildlife immensely. All the facilities are clean and the owners have obviously invested a lot of time and money making this a wonderful place to stay. I plan on making this my favorite campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stay here every time we go through this area. Friendly staff, courtesy service to sites. Bathrooms are rustic, but clean. Beautiful location. They really have put a lot into building trails along the Suwanee River and woods, and continue to work on the campground. Easy in/out, large sites, friendly campers. It's worth the trip, time, and camping fee. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They advertise 2000 feet of Suwannee River frontage, but you must walk on a boardwalk close to 1/2 mile to even see the river. The owners seem quite nice and even bring you to your campsite. There are a lot of rules (16 written). They show a $15 rate for P/A members, but by the time you add sewer and fairly mandatory 50 amp power it is $19 plus tax. If you don't buy sewer hook up, you can dump for $2. The campground is very quiet; access by about a mile of dirt road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, quiet park to get away from it all. Great views, nice owners and good services. There are ponds, walking trails and a boardwalk to the river that is stunningly beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Water supply is on a well and the park is near the river, we ruined our central water filter due to rust and junk in the water. Not a show stopper but be sure to have a filter, I went to Wal-Mart and got a cheap external until I could replace our central filter. Park is laid back, quiet and out of the way, not much to do but lay back. Would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We decided on this park basically because of the previous reviews. However, we were not prepared for the extremely unlevel site that was assigned to us. Because we were only overnighting, I requested only water and electric. But, because our motorhome is over “33 feet”, we had to pay for 50A at an additional $2. We could have sufficed with 30A for the evening. Our site was basically a utility post at the edge of the road, no distinct site at all. In order to level, our back tires were off the ground!!!! Most all of the other sites in the park looked a whole lot more level than ours. The wi-fi was good, but it wasn’t available at the site. The “hotspot” is on the porch of the clubhouse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Showers, laundry, restrooms, were all very clean. Pet friendly, but there was no place to throw a ball for our dogs. Boardwalk was amazing and the dogs did take a swim in the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a decent place. This is a “Good Sam” park but that is an overrating. The office people were friendly and took us to our campsite. Our site was on grass, I think all of them are, with some trees around us. Sandy roads inside the campground but with no overhanging branches to catch the unwary. There is a 1500 foot boardwalk to the Suwannee River. You can swim in the Suwannee if you want but there are no lifeguards. The campground has a mix of snowbirds and overnighters. I didn't notice any “permanent” residents. Odd cable TV with the three old networks plus Fox, TV Land and Fix News. NBC came from New York of all places and it seemed like ABC was coming out of California. PBS on the antenna. Full hook-ups but low water pressure. WiFi at a hot spot in the clubhouse. There is a tent camping area in the woods near the boardwalk. This is a very quiet area, well off the main roads. The entrance road is 0.6 mile (not 1.5 miles as someone else has said) bumpy mystery pavement with sand and gravel over the top. The paved road out front is fairly narrow. Two Class A units meeting would probably have to slow down and pass carefully. The Nature Coast Trail, a 32 mile paved biking, hiking, and equestrian trail is 5 miles away in Old Town. We stayed here in a 31 foot Class C for 5 nights and payed $95 with a Passport America discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Suwannee River Hideaway has a unique office and store with lots of reading material. The staff are friendly and welcome you as friends. It is set in beautiful surroundings with a modern clubhouse. The rustic facilities are adequate and very clean. There is an awesome boardwalk to the Suwannee with deck and dock on the River. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle to peace and quiet this is the place to go! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We paid the PA rate. This campground has a lot of potential, but it has some major flaws. The pros: remote, very quiet, boardwalk to the Suwannee River, wide sites, friendly staff. Cons: extra charge for 50-amp, county roads leading to the park entrance very narrow, road from park entranced unpaved, rutted and dusty, power went out twice during our overnight stay. After we got set up, we started to read the campground handout and found out that they require wooden blocks under all leveling jacks. As my wife said, “Not after we are set up.” We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was not what we were expecting after reading about it in Woodalls. The staff were all friendly and helpful but the park itself was a disappointment. After driving down a 1 1/2 mile unpaved washboard road, we arrived at a campground with no paved roads, no concrete pads, or landscaping. I can't imagine what the parking sites are like when it rains. The restrooms were clean, but old, unheated, and covered with a screen door. If the outside temps are low, the showers will be cold. Water pressure is minimal. They do have Wi-Fi, as advertised, but it is available only if you take your laptop to the office or clubhouse. The cable TV consisted of 6 channels and the picture was adequate. If you have a roof top satellite, you may have to search around for a site where you can get a good signal without interference from the trees. The park is a "natural" landscaped park with nothing but dirt roads and mowed grass/weeds to park your unit on. We camped there in a motorhome. I would stay here again only if there were no other vacancies in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campsites are 32 ft. wide, on grassy lawns, served by dirt connecting roads. Only about half of the sites have sewer hook-up. Tent sites are secluded and beautiful. A 1/2 mile scenic boardwalk takes one through a cypress swamp to the banks of the Suwannee River, where there is a deck for observaion and a dock for fishing boats. Not every site has a picnic table and there are only 3 community fire rings for the whole park. There is a laundry, horse shoe pitching area, and a small camp store. The staff is helpful and the park is clean and well-maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Activities limited to a walk on the boardwalk to the river. It was interesting to see the swamp flora on the way. Roomy sites. Sewer is extra, 33ft is extra, 50 amp extra. Clubhouse closes at 4PM! Office closes at sundown. NO lights at night. About 6 channels of snow on "cable" TV. Very low water pressure. Sign in shower room "do not remove shower head. It will only reduce pressure for others". Old wooden bench in shower stall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a lovely park staffed by lovely people. If you’re looking for serenity, this is the place. The 1500’ boardwalk to the river is mesmerizing, and the park is so far away from the lights and sounds of civilization, the star-gazing is the best I’ve seen since Yellowstone. The fence, gate, and remote location make this the safest-feeling park in the area. This is not a park for children (or adults for that matter) who can’t entertain themselves. The cable TV only has 6 channels and most sites are not close enough to the office to pick up the wifi signal. But if you take the pleasant stroll up to the office, you find the wifi works very well, and the office cat may even keep you company. The clubhouse is nice. The laundry is small, but functional. The restrooms are completely without frills, but are clean. Sites vary in size. The Old Town area offers little to do, but twenty minutes away, there’s a great little restaurant (inside a quilt shop) in Trenton. Cedar Key is an hour or so away, but well worth the drive for anyone interested in local art, and state parks and recreation areas highlight the natural beauty of the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport park and reasonable. No bugs or ants and that was a relief from the last campground we were at. The staff was very cordial. Very limited cable and my dish could see out from site E-9. Board walk out to river was very interesting. Quiet and very shady. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park in a quiet, peaceful area. Sites not that big but roomy enough, we have a 30 ft class A. Staff on check-in extremely friendly and helpful. Passport America and Good Sam park. Cable TV consists of six channels. Bathhouses are simple with no paper towels or a shelf or bench in the shower to set your stuff on but very clean and well maintained. Laundry is also very clean and organized but allows cold water washing only. The boardwalk leading to the Suwannee river is a neat feature; interesting birds and plants in the swamp leading to the river and a very nice view of the river at the end of the boardwalk. Dump station is easy to access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second visit to this campground, so that we can visit old friends. The owners are great. Very helpful and friendly. The campsites are large and level, with the hookups easily accessible. There is not much to do there, but relax, walk on their boardwalk to the river, which is remarkable in the way it was constructed. It is a pleasant experience. Although this year we did not do it, by all means get a firepot brought to your site for a little more than $5, you can have the best campfire that lasts a long time and does not smoke, nor spit sparks, but provides lots of heat. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park to "get away from it all", hard to find in Florida. The owners are the most friendly hosts you will find in a campground. The sites are large and the grounds are very well maintained. The owners personally built the 1500' boardwalk to the river and it is an amazing piece of work. Take your coffee to the dock and enjoy the morning. We are told they put on a great Halloween party in the fall and "survivor" weekend in the spring. Call for dates. We came for a night and stayed for a week. We will be back. (Contrary to a previous post this was never a KOA - perhaps it was confused with another in Old Town) We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very nice ,quiet and clean. Not much to do around the area but very relaxing and alot of space. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fairly new campground, with wonderful owners. The boardwalk to the Suwannee
River is awesome and must have been difficult to build. Although they don't allow open fires at the sites, for $5 they rent you a fire pot, filled with wood. It is absolutely a great gadget and puts out so much heat. The sites were level and roomy and not crowded at all. A very nice campground We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground . Owners are very nice , and helpful people. The campground has only been open since last year so they are still expanding. It was such a pleasure to stay at a campground where you hear frogs and crickets not cars and
trucks! We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
No longer KOA, a beautiful spot! Much deferred maintenance, temporary manager told us owner a widow and she and her son have been running it for 5 years. Roads and sites are sand, a few potholes, but we truly enjoyed it. We were given the KOA discount anyway. It is only 1.5 miles off the main highway. We camped here in a Motorhome.

1500' wooden cat walk through a beautiful wet swampy area to Suwannee River. Owners very friendly and accommodating 108 acres of land with future expansion to 100 sites and a club house. Groups welcome. Worth the trip just to see the catwalk. This is a very quiet natural area of the Nature Coast of Florida. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bathhouse is disgusting. Not cleaned since we have been here. Mold in soap dispenser. Commode stopped up and not fixed. Horrible smell. Not handicapped accessible. Large person could not use bathroom or showers. The place is rather junky. Would not camp here again. The owners are very nice, but the place needs lots of TLC. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The last review is correct. Office stunk of cigarettes. To many junky old units. It's a bad trailer park, stay away. People stare at you like you are invading their home. Very bad. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an old-time Florida campground. It is bordered on both sides by canals from the Suwannee River. Many Live Oak trees with dripping moss. In fact, too many trees. Trees growing in the middle of campsites. Holes in the gazebo's roof which isn't getting fixed. No one is doing maintenance. No one is doing landscaping unless the camper wants to do it himself. Lots of permanent residents. A group of winter guests are holding on and trying to make the best of it. This park is in disrepair and it's a shame. The owners live on-site and are nice enough, but don't do anything. And don't bother asking them to do anything. This is a do-it-yourself park. Bathrooms are broken. One toilet may work. Dock is falling into canal. The only thing positive is that they have good satellite TV reception and good Verizon reception. We stayed 1 month and won't return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained campground that is ideal for nature lovers who want peace and quiet. It is off the beaten path. The dock is well maintained and has a boat/kayak launching area. The lots on the water are beautiful. The lots are large and many are shaded. This is a hidden gem. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is 10 miles from Old Town situated on the Swanee River. They have a mix of sites with live oaks all over. The roads are hard packed sand as are the sites. We arrived early afternoon to visit Manatee Springs State Park across the river. The campground rents pontoon boats in case you don't want to drive all the way around to the state park via Old Town. We rented a pontoon, headed up river to the park, docked at the state park and swam in the 72 degree springs. The cable tv was decent with about 20 channels, the hosts were friendly, and didn't hear about any of the rules the previous reviewer mentioned. I also didn't see but a few cabins, so I'm not sure what the reviewer was referring to about all the park models and long-term residents. Very nice showers and restrooms, all tile. The laundry was big and airy I think there were about 7 each of washers and dryers. A nice park, that served its purpose for us. A nice stop on the way home from Orlando. We would definitely come back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have been staying at this park for the past 5 years periodically throughout the year. Not sure if they have taken on new management or what is happening here. It is still a beautiful park and one of the prettiest I have ever stayed at traveling throughout the US, however, the personnel have changed drastically. Every time I go there it appears more and more permanent residence are moving in. Many now have large decks and have made it a home. The atmosphere is terrible and the campground manager, which is a big gentleman who wears a campground security shirt many of the days, makes you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. This in turn makes me wonder if going back for the river justifies my family feeling uneasy, especially since they feel they need a security man to patrol and make sure people know things are done his way or you may be removed from the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground, spent 3 days, staff very friendly and obliging. We notice while here, maintenance and improvements to the campground seem to be an ongoing, though in no way was this a problems. They seem to be very discreet and mindful of their guests. I would go again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America discount. Very friendly staff, right on river if you like to fish. Showers and bath are combo in separate rooms, very CLEAN. Only problem was the "no see-um's". We camped here in a Motorhome.
We come here again and again. It's less than 3 hrs from home, but might as well be 1000 miles away. We leave our work and worries behind. It's beautiful, peaceful and perfect. So quiet and clean. Few children, if any. Wonderful waterfront with nice docks. Rent a pontoon boat - it's great. The owners are very nice pet friendly people. It's obvious that they love it here too. The sun on the water is breathtaking, and there are plentiful fish below the surface. It's our choice for a quick getaway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground was great place to stay. The sites were very big and very shaded. The roads were white sand but not messy. Everything was clean and kept up. The staff were all very nice and friendly. The office manger went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable (thanks). The park is very quiet. It is located on the Suwanne River. If you like peace and quiet, this is for you. Fishing and boating is right here. The only drawback was the nearest town is 9 miles away. The nearest shopping is about 30 miles away. So do your shopping for food before you get there. Our AT&T cellphones did not work and our AT&T Wi-Fi did not work. Other than that, it was avery nice 2 weeks. We will go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has an old Florida feel however it is very dusty and buggy. The long road in is all sand and dust. It's right on the Suwannee River, though, and is very picturesque. I was surprised by a previous reviewer's comments that there was no sewer and no 50 amp. I had both. I stayed here years ago before they had built the pool and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We rented a pontoon boat from the campground and watched the manatees. This time not so much. I was using the place as a two night stopover (they take Passport) and had a lot of computer work to do. The Wi-Fi doesn't accommodate Macs! The owner was very helpful and put me on the phone with the geek in town who had set it up, but he had no idea how to help. He said more people have PCs so he doesn't worry about it. I guess he hasn't looked at Apple stock prices lately. Anyway, I got my money back and moved to a campground down the road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is in a great scenic place along the Suwannee River. Our site was on the river with a great view. Sites are dirt with some light gravel (level). Each site had a fire ring and most had very heavy tree cover. Cable TV was acceptable with 20 channels but almost no service for AT&T customers with marginal service for Verizon cell users. The park has way too many rules published even though we were not bothered by any of the staff looking for violations. LOL. Pool looks new and over view of park is very good. It is located 9 miles down the road from Old Town down a lime rock road and 15 miles from Chiefland where you can find Super Wal-Mart and grocery store. Yellow flies were out so we used a screen house around picnic table. Nice pavilion and clubhouse. You can purchase bags of ice from the office plus wood as you are not allowed to bring any wood into park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park; we own a campground and stay in many many parks when we travel. The pool area is really well done. The park is neat and tidy. The bathrooms are private and clean. Terrific owners, have done lots of work to make it a lovely park all around. We'd definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The water at this campground is very poor quality. It's yellowish brown and rusty. Our clothes were ruined in the washer because of the bad water. Surely this can't be healthy to drink?!! We have camped at this campground in the past and the same problem existed then so apparently it's not a concern for them. We will not camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great RV park, wish I could spend more than 1 week. Clean bath and showers. Cable TV good. Wi-Fi untested. Large sand and gravel lot in the woods right on the river. Perfect view. Friendly crew. Water needs a filter and cell phone service weak. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean, staff was helpful as we had to reschedule due to flu. Some other campers were somewhat rude and allowed pets to run loose, however not the campgrounds fault tho. Only problem, the sites are small. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The only reason I don't give it a higher score, is the boat ramp is a dirt and pebble ramp. It was very steep and hard to get a larger boat out. The site were very nice, with a great view of the river. very roomy and clean, with a friendly staff. 20 channels of cable, but all the right channels. We will go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The $20 rate reflects a October special. My large treed grassy site was near the back which I enjoyed. Cable and Wi-Fi worked great. Very quiet and the river borders the property. This CG is off the highway about 10 miles and would be a good choice for any camp out. Laundry has several machines and is also very clean and reasonable. There aren't any speed bumps and I would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The lady who checked us in was very friendly. Our site was shady during the afternoon. There was a large, 3 level dock for boats and fishing. There was a clubhouse but it was locked the whole time we were here. They sprayed for mosquitoes every day but we were told the mosquitoes were bad around the pond in the tent camping area. The pool was heated and very clean. We stayed 4 days and will definitely go back in the fall when the temperature is cooler and hopefully the fish are biting. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice and quiet park. Bathrooms were spectacular, and the pool was nice. It's close to the river with boat rentals. WiFi was great. It is off the road quite a ways, so there is no road noise. The only problem was we couldn't get phone service (Verizon). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are level, Wi-Fi, cable TV, power and water are good. Nice picnic tables on concrete and fire rings. There are docks with boat slips and boats to rent. Well maintained park, would have given it a 10 but we drove out of our way for the heated pool. It was only 78 degrees and the hot tub was dirty. Nightly rate reflects Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest campgrounds that we have ever stayed at. The sites are large and well kept up. Our site overlooked the river and the dock, where we could fish. Very peaceful. Everything from the pool to the laundry room was in perfect shape. We will definitely come back here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like large shady lots with ease of parking on the river, then this is the place. We paid for riverfront and glad to spend the extra money. The lots were so large you had plenty of parking room for your vehicle. Very large dog walking/running area in rear of campground. Deluxe bathrooms in several locations. Nice rec room. Easy to use dock. Flat lots, hook up in rear, so may need extensions. The campground had them if you forgot. Nice friendly owners. They have pride of ownerships in all that they do at this park. Nice convenient gas pumps 8 miles down the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have been watching the reviews of this campground carefully and decided to spend a couple of days here. First, I can describe the results of rain on the roads and sites, since it had rained for over 7 straight hours before I left. The road leading into the campground and through the campground gets shallow puddles but does not become slippery or muddy at all. The grassy part of my site (#13) had standing water but was not boggy. The road into the campground is very well graded, and while it does become narrow at one point, that is only for a very short distance. I saw but did not meet the owners. I was greeted in the office by an extremely friendly woman, who checked me in quickly and was helpful answering a few questions. I had chosen one of the more expensive sites since I wanted to be on the river. The website photos are a tad misleading, since only sites #1 and #2 have an unobstructed view of the water, the other sites are all set back with palmetto bushes blocking much of the view. I was the only camper next to the water, all the others were at interior sites. I later discovered that they were staying long term, which would be costly at the premium sites. The campground was about half filled. The Wi-Fi was out when I got here but returned the next morning and stayed on for the remainder of the time. This is a huge property that extends far beyond the campsite area and includes 3 small ponds, two with a resident alligator each (don’t walk your dog back there). I found it to be extremely well-maintained. The sites were very clearly marked and easy to distinguish. I will definitely be returning and will reserve site #1 for a better view of the river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a wonderful, rustic, “Old Florida”, park! Very clean and well maintained while keeping as much of the native foliage and trees as realistically possible. Trees with Spanish moss, palmetto palms, and wild shrubbery throughout the park. Packed sand interior roads. Sand, grass, and pea gravel sites, mostly sand. We required an extra long pull through and they had one available. There are not many pull through sites but truly the best sites are the pull in back out sites directly on the river. Very quiet, almost silent at night. It was not crowded when we were there but I would imagine it fills up in the summer. Once you turn off SR349 on to a packed sand road, the road narrows drastically so be prepared. Pristine clean laundry, 6 washers/6 dryers, $1.50 each. We were here two nights but we will most definitely return and stay longer. If you prefer city camping in a park with no trees and your rig on concrete, this place is not for you. Daily rates, tax included, at the time of our stay: Super Deluxe Riverfront $49, Deluxe Riverfront $44, Deluxe Riverview $39, Premium Off Riverfront $34. Rates are for 2 people, each additional person, including children over 1 year old, $6/night. Pets are an additional $2/night/pet. Weekly and monthly rates are less per night. Check out time 12 PM. No cell phone service with AT&T. Free Wi-Fi at site and it worked very well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is kind of a tough RV park for me to rate objectively. We are mostly one nighters when it comes to RV Parks on our way to our destination. I feel this park may be better suited for someone that is planning to spend some time here and enjoy the river and woods. The park itself is well maintained, but the roads are hard packed dirt and the sites are a combination of dirt, grass, and gravel. It was not raining when we were here so I'm not sure how the grounds would be in one of Florida's famous thunderstorms. The LONG road into the park is hard packed dirt and rough. Again, this could be a problem when it is raining. The restrooms were clean and well appointed, as were the restroom/shower combination. We did not get a chance to visit the clubhouse, or use the pool/spa. One thing that was a big negative to me was the additional $2 daily charge for a dog. This would not have bothered me if the park would have furnished something, anything, for pets. There is no fenced dog run, courtesy waste bags, nothing. Basically this park has the same pet rules as other parks and I feel the $2 daily charge per dog is just another way of squeezing more money out of a customer. The park does have cable TV with 18 stations including the local networks. It also has a very good Wi-Fi available at each site. The staff that I met were very friendly and efficient. The site that we had was heavily wooded which was nice from a shade point of view but it would make satellite reception next to impossible. All things considered this would be a nice place to spend a few days down by the river. I feel it is just a little too out of the way for a one night stay and the additional daily charge per pet really rubbed me the wrong way. We will probably not stay here again. This would be a nice park for someone that could appreciate it's location and what it can offer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found the staff here very friendly and helpful. This is a beautiful park. The pool was very clean. The park was very clean. We didn't get to meet the owner, but we will definitely be going back. We loved the park and the people she has working here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this park. We've only been camping for a short time, but found everything we wanted. This is a very pet friendly park with very friendly campers. We found the "blonde, German Lady" who has received so many bad remarks to be extremely nice and helpful. We had a large pull through with a view of the river. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate so we weren't able to put our boat in the water. We will definitely return when the weather is nicer. We heard there is a good restaurant about 12 miles down the road in the town of Suwannee that we plan to try on our next trip. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is a little out there in the woods but has a nice setting. They have a wood oven heated spa and pool which is really nice. The restrooms are a bit tiny and not that convenient but they did the trick. The sites are shaded but when you arrive it's unclear where your space really is. The light is kept at a minimum at night. Wi-Fi is available for free at your site. We would stay here again for an overnight not longer mainly because of the spa. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The grounds of the campground were very clean and well maintained. Lots are large with firepit, grill, and picnic table. The bathhouse and laundry were spotless. The pool and pool area was huge and also very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Beware of yellow (sulphur) water. Smelled and tasted terrible. Bring bottled water or have good filter system in your RV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice location way off the beaten path (11 miles) and right on the Suwannee River. Easy access in our 45ft MH. Very quiet location with large floating docks and a boat ramp. Lots of shade trees which did not allow satellite access, but they have 19 channels on the cable TV hookup. Cell coverage was 0-1-bar for both AT&T and Verizon. The Wi-Fi worked more than adequately. I can only image that this campground is better suited for winter visitors (BUGS). The owner was polite but did not offer an escort to our site; not a big deal but it would have been helpful. The campground was clean and very orderly; each site was more than adequate and well maintained, with a gravel and sand drive and sand RV pads. We will return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The folks that own and work here were very nice. I do not know where some reviewers stayed but it must not have been the same place we did. The Suwannee River was absolutely beautiful. The campground is very clean and well kept. The owner couple are part of the staff. They are super folks and were very helpful. We are looking forward to staying again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is most unfortunate that the dark haired girl who was so friendly and helpful to everyone is no longer there. The blonde German lady who owns the park is so unbearably rude to people that we recommend avoiding this park due to the owners' ill temper and mean attitude towards their customers. Camping is supposed to be a fun experience, but when you are mistreated by the owners then it's best to avoid the park and go someplace where you feel welcome and can enjoy your camping experience as it should be. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice RV Park. It is very well maintained, very clean and accommodating. We enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub. The atmosphere is very welcoming. Office lady was very nice and friendly. It is located out and away from all, so peaceful. We would definitely recommend long term stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were very dissatisfied. Website is somewhat misleading. Staff or owners of campground very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Campground was probably 85% empty. I stayed in a campground cabin. The room I was given was very unclean. The bedding was unclean and room smelled of dog and mold. Requested a different cabin but was told I could not have one, although there were others available. I was denied a refund to go somewhere else as it was prepaid on my debit card. I am allergic to mold so my stay was very uncomfortable and unwelcome. I would not recommend visiting here as they are very unfriendly and you are made to feel as though you have no freedom to enjoy the campground they advertise on their website. The price of 140 dollars per night is not worth the drive to this campground. To bad, the scenery is beautiful but not worth it. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We have camped here many times, including the past 3 holidays weekends. This is a beautiful park on the river. Big sites & clean restrooms. Dark haired lady in the office has always been helpful and welcoming. Beware of the older blonde German lady. She is the one everyone is posting about. She is unfriendly and unwelcoming. We have always had a great time but steered clear of the German who will charge you for everything and loves rules (has pages of them). No cell service but good WiFi. No store, so get what you want before you get there. Nice heated pool. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground itself was nice. We camped there under the Passport America half price discount program, The park belongs to the system and advertises with the system and you would think that they would like to see campers come, especially during the slow season when the park was about 80 % empty. The staff was unwelcoming and we were made to feel like second class citizens. We use Passport America a lot and rarely see this happen. Passport America campers were relegated to the “cheap seats” in the back of the park, behind the bathhouses and pool. We paid $22 which was full price at many campgrounds and were limited to one night. We would have stayed two if we had felt welcome. I just thought the attitude was a little strange. We managed to enjoy ourselves and the sites were large and comfortable. There is a nice waterfront with docks, rental boats and such. There were also many little extras where you could tell the owners had tried to make it a great park. Need to work on employees next. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here before. They have new managers and they are great! Busy holiday weekend and they did everything to help us out and make our stay great. Restrooms were cleaned constantly so was the pool area. They kept extra cars and boats off the site so it was really nice to drive in and out. Very clean! Helpful manager and staff! Beautiful park. We rented pontoon boats and had a great time. Great fireworks and CLEAN, especially on a fully packed holiday weekend. We WILL BE BACK!!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park in a beautiful area along the Suwannee river. We have stayed here several times and find the staff to be helpful and friendly. Sites are grass/sand put overall the park has a great atmosphere. We will return again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park itself is beautiful. Upon check in the office manager very rudely told me that my Good Sam discount would not be honored, because people like us took up the same space as everyone else. Also, they advertise high speed internet, it is about the same as dial up, when it works. When I inquired with the "office manager" I was told to get a pen, paper and stamp like everyone else. Restrooms backed up with septic sewage while we were there, and hadn't been cleaned by the time we left. Pool is not heated as advertised! Beautiful setting on the river, unhelpful, rude staff! We won't return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice in office. Pool looked clean but it was raining so did not use it. It was 9 miles each way off the main highway. That's $6.00 worth of gas. Then they charged $4.00 extra for my two very small dogs. Then the modem was down for some reason or other. The utilities were all on the wrong side in our section and I still have not figured that out. Maybe set up for future park models? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was not what my group was expecting at all. It was overall disappointing. My first complaint is that you have to pay an additional $6/person/night. That is if you have more than 2 in your party. I camped with my husband and 2 kids for a total of $78 for 2 nights. I thought that was a rip off. My next complaint is their web site is a little misleading. We paid the extra $5 to have a riverfront site. Well, you're not exactly riverfront. There's your campsite, the woods, & then the river. You can see the river from your site, but it's not right there. The pictures on Yellow Jacket's web site make it look like the river is right there. The docks they have are not really sufficient enough to fish off of. There is a bridged walkway to the dock, and then the dock is a floating dock. The bright side of things were, there was not that many people there, and the bathrooms were really clean. I mean really clean. Overall the experience was OK, not great. I would never go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A very clean, pretty and well maintained park on the Suwannee River, with friendly management and work campers. The sites are large and have picnic tables and fire pits. Only their firewood may be used in the firepits at $5 per bundle. We found 2 downsides to this campground. Firstly we couldn't get cell phone or internet access and also sitting outside in the evenings we were almost carried away by "no-see-ums". The fishing is very good and they rent boats. They have a great club house, it seems a real pity that they don't have winter activities. The campground is 9 miles out of Old Town, of which the last 2 miles are on a dirt road. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is beautiful, but the owners and their attitude leaves a lot to be desired. They do not give what they say over the phone. We were given a price over the phone then when we arrived they raised it. They have rules and more rules. They will fine you $35.00 for moving a picnic table if you do not put it back in the precise spot it was in. Every guest you have has to pay $5.00 per person, even if they stay 5 minutes, and they are very demanding about getting the money. They are NOT handicap accessable. The only ramp is at the office and this is so steep it is hard for anyone to walk up it. They said the Rec hall was AC, but didn't bother to say it had been broken for a while. When we arrived they didn't say the sewer could not be used till after they had the money in hand. Most parks would have taken off several $ but not here. It is a shame that the owners have no training in public relations. This is the highest priced park in the area. There are other parks a lot cheaper and closer to town. We will NEVER come back here again and it is all due to the management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very,very nice riverfront and dock on the Suwannee River. Great computer set up for everyones use and a dialup connection. Beautiful pool and patio. Gravel roads. Adequate cable. 9 miles off rt. 19, so its a long roundtrip out to the crossroads. Very nice at the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful campground, with lots of upgrades in the last few years. We had a site along the riverfront (#10) which was right at the dock - great for the kids, however, I would not recommend this site as it was the access for the rest of the campers to the dock. There are large and small trees surrounding the sites, which are a fairly good size and covered with sand and grass. I would have given this campground a 10 if there more amenities - virtually no store, or kids activities; couldn't use cell phone and "sand gnats" were bad - got lots of bites. However, it's a wonderful place to just be out in nature - we rented a boat for the afternoon and enjoyed fishing on the Suwannee and stopped at Manatee Springs for a swim. This was one of the few campgrounds we found in Florida who actually allowed open campfires. I would highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is one of the best we have been in. We camped right on the river. Sites 1-6 are the best view. They have boats to rent or canoes, if you don't have your own. Pool and spa were very nice. Very pet friendly. We certainly will be going back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Well maintained campground with new beautiful pool and rec room. We camped on lots 4,5,6 which were huge with gorgeous views of the river. Good river access with boat docks and rentals available. One of the nicest campgrounds we have visited. Very friendly to campers and pets. Quiet,peaceful and delightful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This an old fish camp directly on the Sumannee river. Has new owners who are making wholesale improvements. Pool to be built soon. Close enough to town but far enough away. Highest rate is on river ($25.00). Lots of room for tent or dry camping. We camped here in a camper.
