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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
