3 Parks near Chiefland, Florida
Jan 2016 - $25.00
Wide spaces and level. Although there was no cable, local tv reception was exceptional with many channels. Staff and guests were very friendly. This time we stayed 3 nights due to the fact that we could not go to Charleston. SC because of inclement weather. We would definitely stay again when passing through. - Arnold Tobias

When I called made a reservation I was informed that the majority of sites are full time folks and asked if a water/electric site would meet my needs, which it would. This site turned out to be their overflow area in large field. Greeted nicely by staff and guided to site area. Ran into an issue which it appeared that the ants had nested in the electrical outlet box for our site, so because no one else was expected our host suggested we run our electric line to the next site. Even offered an extension cord if we needed (we carry one). Wifi was available however I did not use it. Park is about 7 miles out of Chiefland. Quiet and road noise seemed minimal. We stayed here in a motorhome. Nice overnight spot. - ownedafew

We were here for an overnight stay. This is a very nice quiet adult park. We have stayed here several times when we are traveling. We stayed in a pull thru site on the back row which is located near Alt Hwy 27 but there is no noise from the highway when inside. The people in the park were very friendly. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful. - Beachlovers

Stopped here just for 1 night - that was long enough. This is an older park, mostly permanent residents. It was cluttered and in need of cleaning and maintenance. The electrical hook-up had some leakage, so that when touched it gave a severe shock. Would definitely NOT recommend this park! - rversfrommaine

This campground appears to be a place for long term residents. There are sites with lots of "stuff" laying around the campers. Very unsightly. The sites are large, mostly sand and grass. There is a cement slab with a picnic table on all the sites, mine had a bundle of some kind on the picnic table making the thing unusable. The sites are large, with ample room between them. My satellite dish would not work because of the trees, and cable hookup is $2.00 per day. The sites are level, and the electricity is good as well as good water pressure. The managers are very accommodating and pleasant to visit with. The grounds are not well kept, i.e: leaves all over the grounds, uncut grass, etc. The nightly rate reflects the Passport America discount. I would stay here again if in the area. - bones1941

Nice paved interior roads, well lit and well marked. They have what looks to be two pull thru sites, but most are backin. Nice grassy sites with a concrete patio. This is an adult only park. It is a good stopping off point when heading down to lower Fllorida. - Traveling Fool

We stayed a week at this park. Unknowingly when we booked 6 months earlier, they were in the process of updating with FHU's. Our site was wonderful! Very level, gravel sites (in the ones that have been updated). The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was the interior roads are not in good shape. Not all sites have been updated, but ours was and everything worked well. Full shade, but we were able to get satellite reception. Great boardwalk and boat ramp to see the Manatees. Lots of trails in park. - jacknpeg

This was our second time staying here....and the best thing about it is that it's definitely a place to unplug! You more than likely won't get cell coverage and definitely won't get digital TV.
The deer are abundant, so have your cameras ready! There is a lot of other wildlife too. So, take in the beauty! The spring is amazing and you can walk there from your campsite. By the spring is an awesome barbecue "restaurant"....do yourself a favor and indulge! They also have other snack foods, and drinks including beer and wine. They rent canoes, and they have free wifi!
The bathrooms this time left a lot to be desired! Really really dirty and no lights on outside at night! Pretty creepy! Hopefully the staff will work on those issues!
All in all, we like camping here....but it's pretty "rustic", so be prepared! - doggpurr

Manatee Springs is absolutely beautiful. A first magnitude spring with crystal clear water at a constant 72 degrees. We didn't see any Manatees because they are out in other rivers for the season but should be back in Nov-Dec for the warmer spring water. Anyway, you can swim and canoe/kayak in the beautiful water. There is a nice concession at the spring where you can rent canoes and kayaks. Lots of food there also.
The campsites were large (we were in #90) with smooth, flat hard sand. The access road is also sand and in pretty good shape. A lot of overhead cover which is good to block out the sun but bad for satellite receivers. Good water and 30 amp power. The showers were clean with lots of hot water. The shower configurations (men's) was a bit awkward with no portioned off changing areas, only a curtain into the shower. Lots of trails for hiking but I also found lots of ticks on myself and my wife even after applying bug spray. The deer come right up to your campsite for handouts which is kind of a shame as they get dependent on handouts rather getting their own food in the wild. We had 1-2 bars of Verizon data and 4 channels of over the air (OTA) TV. There is a small general store just out the front gate. We will be back in the winter when the manatees are back. - jebgg
