We stay the second time on this campground on our way to north. The place is located near the I75 but not to close so it's not to noisy at night. The restrooms are clean but very old and need to be modernized, the wifi is strong and works well. The overnight section is very dusty but they have a nice new fenced dog run. I wouldn't recommend this campground for holidays but for one or two nights it's OK. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

There are many positive things about this campground- friendly staff, convenient access from the the interstate, clean, level sites with good hook-ups. Negative- Overnight campers are lined up down a long driveway with about 12 ft between the back end of the RV in front of us and the nose of our RV. A driveway is left clear on one side to allow early risers to exit, but this required driving down a short bank over to the clear driveway. We managed this without difficulty, as most of our neighbors were not yet ready to leave. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

This RV park had the nicest staff we've ever encountered. They help you set up and are all around nice folks. Lots of beautiful animals to visit and they were sweet too. The area has a lot to offer and easy access. There is a unique system pull through system but it works well. These people have done a great job turning this campground around from what I was told use to be a mess. All hookups worked well. Bathrooms were clean but were a good walk from the sites. We would stay here again. We stayed here in a fifth wheel. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the friendliest park we've ever stayed at. The office staff was friendly when we checked in, the outside guys were friendly when they hooked us up (a first for us), and the staff even presented our rally group with a nice, big cake. Unheard of ! The setup is weird, but it somehow works. Our rally group was parked end to end with just enough space in between to wrangle our towed in and out for our daily adventures. The only disadvantage is that your rig ain't going anywhere until the rig in front of you pulls out, but since we were a group, we have no problems with this. There are a bunch of animals in the park from horses to macaws and even an emu. The macaws were loud and rowdy, but calmed down after dark. We'd love to go back here again. Great campground --- but they don't accept credits, so be aware to bring your checkbook or sufficient cash. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

The thing we like about this park is that when you check in, they help you hook up your rig. The parking for overnighters is an unusual arrangement, but works well. It is a little difficult to find off of I-75, but plenty of signage. You go down a dead end road and there they are. People are friendly and there is a lot to do or look at here. We have stayed here before and would come back. They don't take credit cards, but would take a check or cash and have an ATM machine. The site was level. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

They have plenty of animals to look at-horses, goats and more. The pool isn't heated so we didn't use it. Free wife and free cable tv made it nice. We also had another car with a small trailer and they allowed us to park it near the RV at no additional charge. Highway noise is not bad.

We read the reviews ahead so we weren't surprised by the cash/check requirement. The overnight sites are laid out in rows with 7 campers in each row. There is room to pull out to the side of the row if you leave before the campers in front of you. Lots of room between units. We were driving two vehicles: a Class B 22 foot RoadTrek and a Town and Country van.

The man who took us to our site also filled our propane tank. He was very friendly and helpful. Great overnight stopping place not too far off the Interstate but still quiet. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

Immaculately clean and well maintained CG with gravel/dirt sites right off I75. Staff is super friendly and helpful - the young man that escorted us to our campsite wanted to do all our hookups for us! However, be advised they only accept cash or check - no cards; there is an ATM in the laundry room if you need cash. Some freeway noise but not intrusive. Some trees that require a little caution on the interior road to the overnight sites. I didn't care for the "head to tail," all-in-a-line sites but that's just personal preference. Sites were long enough for MH and tow. Too many trees for satellite but cable is available. Several attractions in the area so this park should be good for an overnight or several nights. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two nights on our way back to Macon, GA from Cedar Key. We wanted to explore Gainesville and this site was perfect. It's very close to exit 399 off I-75, but situated down in somewhat of a valley so the noise is minimal. Clean, well maintained, modern facility with excellent power and cable TV. The WiFi was a bit spotty, but not a big deal to us. Our dog loved to visit the animals, particularly the emu. This is a great one night spot when traveling I-75. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

YOU MUST PAY IN CASH and it doesn't say it anywhere. Plan ahead. We stopped here for an overnight with our travel trailer in mid-May. The pool was closed yet which was a disappointment because it was a hot, steamy day. The transient RV spots are laid out a little differently, in that, there are long rows of seven sites in a row. The office tries to place you in a row where people are leaving at the same time you are. It was really not a problem with leaving if you let the office know. Most sites have some shade and all have a picnic table. They have some animals as part of the "farm" that were nice to see. The grounds were well-kept and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our overnight here very much. We would come back again. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Check out the farm animals on the property. We enjoyed seeing the donkeys, horse, peacocks, 7 parrots, and goats. We were near Gainesville if you needed supplies. It was easy on, easy off the Interstate, but the noise was not an issue.

This is a an OK campground. They have these strange head to tail long pull thru sites that allow big rigs to stay hooked up. There are cross over spots so not usually a problem in the AM. They have 50 Amp FHU available. The park is older but clean and tidy. ATT & Verizon work well. Some trees so ask if need satellite set up. Restrooms are dated but clean.
No train but some Hwy noise especially up in monthly area. Free Tengo WiFi worked Ok. Internal roads and pads are hard packed with narrow grass between. Really only an over nighter unless you get one of the outer road sites (I think it was E row). As they say watch the speed bumps. Would stay again. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The management has a good routine to make sure the campers get to the sites quickly and provided a helper to make sure the electric and other hookups were working. The layout of the sites for the over night campers was unusual but very satisfactory. The sites could be called pull through sites. The staff was friendly and helpful. The noise from the interstate highway was a bit disturbing but not bad. We stayed there one night. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Well I'll have to say I was first in my row so got out when I wanted too. The person behind me had to cut across the bank to exit. I have never seen a park like this. The power was a little low but did not have a problem with it. Water good. There are 2 speed bumps that are not needed and knock everything in the camper all over the place even at a snails speed. Lots of dirt and trees. Lots pretty level. A little high price for what you get. I will pass this one up next time. Noise from the highway was a little loud.

We stayed here overnight while traveling back home from Key West. The campground has a great set-up for overnighters...easy in, easy out. The lady in the office was very nice and helpful. If you're traveling to Gainesville or the surrounding area this is a good place to stay for a few days. The pool looked nice and there are farm animals for the kids to see. I liked it.!

This was one of the strangest parks we've ever stayed in. 5 long lines of short-term RV's. We were lucky enough to get a front spot but with all the other lines empty they parked two other RV's right behind us. They left earlier than us so I'm not sure how they got out but it couldn't have been easy! We didn't use any facilities and only stayed one night- but that was enough to know we don't plan on being back. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed a week and were put in the farthest south strip of the "overnight" section. Utilities worked fine (TV is satellite and fluctuated with the weather). WI-FI was excellent from our site, F4. The park was not terribly busy, so units were put on alternating rows making it easy for folks to go around other units when leaving. I'm not sure how that would happen when busy. The often cited speed bumps are of note, but the trick is to go over them at no more than about 1 MPH. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

Since Gainesville has no RV parks, this is the best and closest spot for visiting the University of Florida or the VA hospital, about 18 miles south.
