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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

Nice park, but strange setup for camping sites with coaches and 5th wheels lined up behind each other, and I mean right behind so the one in front has to leave before anyone else can. The speed bumps will rattle you cage, and shake heck out of you coach/trailer. Other than that, it is a nice camp to stop over night or for several days. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

If you don't like speed bumps this is not your place! They even have a speed bump at the exit when you are trying to get into the street. Very strange way of staging the overnighters...in a straight row, so if you want to leave before the person in front of you, you will have an incline or decline on grass to maneuver to leave the park. The park itself is very pleasant and well maintained. This park will not be on our list of places to stay. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground previously had made our "never again" list because of the horrible county road leading into the park. I read that the road had been resurfaced, so we decided to try again. It has now made the "Never ever again; I'll stay at Walmart before I will stay here again" list.

Check in was quick. However, that was the end of quick. We had to wait for our escort to help another camper hook up the electricity. I told the escort we could hook up by ourselves, but he wouldn't allow that because he had to shave down the plugs on our electric cord. I was not too thrilled about someone taking a file to our plug. I guess they have their rules, but it took him 20 minutes to get to us. All I wanted to do was hook up, get into the RV for a shower and some food, watch some television, and check our email. No cable. They were in a dispute with their cable provider. Worthless WiFi.

But here's the worst part: the overnight visitors were parked in parallel rows which we knew from previous visits. However, this time a camper was parked in front of us, preventing us from driving forward. Instead, we had to drive down a mound of dirt to exit. As I was guiding my husband out of the site, I saw the generator's exhaust pipe dragging but could do nothing to stop this. Fast forward to next repair: we had to pay to have the exhaust pipe straightened and reattached because of this. Several hundred dollars.

Although this campground is a convenient stop on I-75, we will never go there again. Not worth the price, the hassle, or the expense of having repairs made. If you opt to stay here, make sure you get the first site in the row so you can pull straight out of the lane. Otherwise, you'll be spending money for repairs. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

Actually, I wanted to rate this higher, but thought it a little pricey compared to others we've stayed at off interstate, hence an 8. Otherwise, it's a really good place to stay off I-75. It's easy in and out. The CG was very clean, and the gravel site was very level. There's lots of space for walking the dog and also good space between other RVs. It's got an unusual set up that we've never seen before. The parking is tandem-style in rows, but every other row, so there's no one parked right next to you, and you can pull out if the rig in front of you is still parked. Unusual, but it worked fine. The cable and Wi-Fi worked well. There's some road noise outside, but none inside the RV. Rate is with a Good Sam discount including tax, and they are cash or check only. We would stay here again when needing an overnight on I-75. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of my favorite campgrounds. I love to walk, and the trees and rolling hills of green grass are lovely. The animals are fun too. There is a bird rescue area for exotics. At first I was worried about them squawking all night, but I guess they sleep too when it's nighttime. The people are very nice and are so alert as to what's going on in the park. They escort you to your site and help with the hookups, and then as soon as someone leaves, they are right on it. The parking for overnighters does seem strange but it wasn't a problem for us. The laundry room was immaculate. Everything was well-maintained. We will return because of the hard work and attention of the workers and the overall ambiance. Well done, Traveler's!

This was a pretty campground. The sites are sort of pull thrus. You can get out if the person in front hasn't left yet by swinging out and around. Everyone we encountered was friendly. We will definitely return. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We just stayed there and found it to be a beautiful and exceptionally well-run place to stay. Granted, it was off-season so there were no issues with the parking arrangement. The grounds were immaculately mowed, the office well-stocked with items campers need, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The animals were fun, especially the heehaw of the donkey. With I-75 closeby it was fast and easy to get into Gainesville. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

I'm not really sure how to rate this CG. We only stayed for a short time to gain access to the springs and parks, plus Gainesville. It was a good location for that. The CG is divided into 3 areas - permanents, part-timers, and short-term. The short-term area was in long lines, with maybe 5 RVs spaces in each row. If you were not the first one in the line, you had to pull around the ones in front - which meant either going down a slight incline or going up a slight incline. On the way in there is an off/set speed bump that will knock everything out of your cupboard. There is a speed bump at the very exit, which is an odd place to have one. However , it is very easy on/off 75 and I noted a lot of big rigs over nighting. For families, there are animals to see and a parrot aviary. I was not so wild about the noisy parrot activity. At least they are quiet at night. People were very friendly and the bottom line is if I needed to be in this area again, I would use it. However, my husband says he doesn't need to see those speed bumps anytime soon! We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park, convenient to I-75. The overnight section is brilliant, set apart from the rest of the park. You are led to a line of campers and are directed to the next hook-up. There's plenty of room to pull out if the camper in front of you has not left before you in the morning. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the strangest campgrounds we have visited. For larger rigs, they line you up, one behind another. When you are ready to leave, you hope the person in front of you has already left or you have to drive over the grass to get around them. The sites are not paved, and it was raining when we were there. Needless to say, the area all around our fifth wheel was a muddy mess. This campground cost way too much money for the facilities they offer. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great little campground with easy access to I-75. Some may not like it, but it was great having help setting up my campsite. The young fellow was very polite, did a great job and then refused a tip when offered. Didn't use the restrooms so can't comment on them. No problems moving about park. It's close to several restaurants as well as High Springs. Road noise was not bad. Fun to see the animals and seeing my dogs' reaction when they came nose to nose with the donkeys. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone needing an overnight stop. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The good news is that interior roads have been paved. The biggest complaint before was the washed out crushed limestone and coral road which also produced a lot of dust. The owner has made other improvements. They did add more speed bumps. The overnight sites can still be hard to get out of and are muddy when it rains. Easy access off I-75 and close to Gainesville make it a good overnight stop. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Motorhome.

Very conveniently located near I-75, great for an overnight stay. They have a separate section dedicated to overnight/short stays and that's where we stayed. Everything worked well (power, water, sewer, cable, etc.). There are several farm animals (goats, cows, even an emu) in large enclosures at the rear of the park (kids will love them). The staff at reception were very nice and efficient; they even guided us to our campsite and offered to help with hooking up. There is some noise from the highway but that is to be expected. Unfortunately, quite a few rigs in the longer-term section were in bad shape and the vehicles associated with these sites were parked a little anywhere so it's not the prettiest campground. It's also a little short on activities (lake, hiking trails, etc). Still, we would very gladly overnight here again. We camped at Travelers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
