3 Parks near Chiefland, Florida
Feb 2016 - $28.00
Basic, rural campground, and not much to do in the area. Mostly seniors. Okay for a one night stop or restful layover for fulltimers. Quiet park. Gravel roads. Friendly, helpful staff. - OH2SD

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
Apr 2016 - $14.00
We stayed here 4 nights and our spot was right next to the road (11th Avenue). Although it was not really noisy inside our motorhome, the view was not good. The RVs are packed in really close together. There is no gym, which was disappointing. TV reception was awful but Wi-Fi was fine. The restroom/shower area seemed clean although I did not use the shower.
Plenty of space for dog walking and the laundry was great - very affordable!
As this park is close to the friends that we were visiting we would most likely stay here again. Everyone we met in this park was very friendly! - GAtraveler

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
May 2016 - $25.00
We camped here in April. Camp site was level and a pull thru. We were right across from the Catfish sink hole in #13. Deer came through every morning and evening. Really enjoyed swimming in Manatee Springs, beautiful blue water with steps going down to the water. Area to sit and have lunch with a concession right there and you could rent canoes. Nice boardwalk through the springs out to the Suwannee River. Would camp here again but look out for ticks this time of year. - Kenny Walker

Friendly staff. Sites are within sight of each other but there are shrubs and trees between sites. Easy walk to bathhouse. Sites are level. Poor to no internet service. Cell service is poor/spotty. Next door to the campground and within easy walking distance is the Manatee Spring. Amazing. Crystal clear water that you can swim, rent kayaks and rent canoes. - camper19709

We stayed 6 nights at Manatee Springs State Park. At first we were a bit nervous pulling into the camping area because the roads were narrow and uneven and it looked like tight maneuvering for a 33 ft fifth wheel. But when we actually had a better look at the sites, how they were set up and how to approach we were pleasantly surprised that they were easy to get in. There are some roots in the camping pad area, but they did not bother us. The camping, the trails and the boardwalk are all within easy walking distance and we had enough to do to spend most of our time exploring the parks and just resting in our zero gravity chairs. At night the stars are tremendous. The board walk is very nice and we walked it during the day and at night to see the stars. If you get up early and go to the springs ( 10 minute easy walk) you can see manatees at the springs.
The restrooms are a bit old but they are clean and well maintained. The showers are a bit cramped but there is a small sitting area. I found a green frog attached to my shower curtain which startled me but overall it met my minimum criteria. We did get wifi but it was weak (Verizon); enough to power my hotspot (for some of the day), but only if I put my phone in a certain area of the camper. There is free wifi at the concession area which is a 5-10 minute walk from any of the campsites.
There are also nice drives to several wild life reserves within easy driving. The only thing that got us down a bit around this part of Florida was the many confederate flags we saw hanging in various home lawns and even at several businesses. This made me uncomfortable. - trilliumhills
