4 Parks near Dunnellon, Florida
Aug 2013 - $35.00
It's 15 miles from Dunnellon on very narrow county roads. On arrival was told they don't accept Passport America at all, even though there in the new book and listed on line. That was a shocker. The roads are paved and sites grass. A few horses there, but facilities for a lot in season. Everything first class. No cable or Wi-Fi signal. Clear view for satellite. Pool sparkling, but umbrella was needed with no shade available. - Libby

Nice horse-oriented campground across the road from Goethe State Forest. Very quiet location. Even though there was a horse training event over the weekend while we were there it wasn't crowded or noisy. Sites are very large but all grass. Roads are concrete and roomy enough for the largest rigs. Utilities worked well. Wi-Fi is weak unless you're near the main building and a bit slow at times. OTA TV reception was excellent. No shade but trees have been planted. Good shopping in nearby Dunnellon. We stayed a week to just relax and bicycle the state forest. - glenthompson

Found this location by searching the web for locations near Rainbow River, Florida to camp and boy it was a find. We intended to stay at another campground but didn't book in time. We showed up late Friday evening and the owners were more than helpful: made us feel right at home. There was nothing but beautiful country to look at as far as the eyes can see. Your surrounded by sky and forest. At night the stars shine so bright that you could stay up all night glazing at them. It's peaceful, quiet and clean. My family rented two RV campsites, we enjoyed the trails, newly built pool, bike riding, hiking and spotless and clean bath houses. We went Saturday to go tubing down Rainbow River. It's approximately 20 miles out, but the drive was delightful. Beautiful country to view and NO traffic. We decided to check out that other campground. I would have been so dissatisfied if I had booked at that location. (We are all more than disappointed in our State campgrounds.) I am so glad we are last minute planners. We did however enjoy the river and will experience it again. It was great fun watching my family make it down the four hour trip in the cold springs on a tub. We were blessed with more than we could have asked for in a campsite. I look forward to more family time and future visits here. Thank you to the owners for such a pleasant experience. - RKCampers

If you transport horses, this is the campground for you. Its a no frills CG but makes up with natural beauty. 100 acres of farm land with (horse) trails leading to a state park plus horse corrals and a barn to exercise your horses. There are no restrooms/showers or pools but the quietness, the relaxation and natural beauty that surrounds you well makes up for it. Bring plenty of food/necessities since its a trip into town. At night you can unwind by a campfire! The owner is an amazing woman whom immediately will become family. The sites are just right, no shade, but you will feel comfortable and secure. - NPC

This park was obviously updated within the last few years. It has a clean, updated appearance. Full hook-ups at the level sites along with picnic table, fire ring and stand-up grill. Site #3 is a pull-thru that offers a line of sight for satellite signal. Verizon hot spot was okay. Sandy site surface meant a LOT of sand tracking into the motorhome. The springs are upriver about a mile, but the drive there is about 7 miles. The headwaters springs are worth a visit: lovely gardens and manmade waterfalls and a nice gift shop. It you snorkel, tube, kayak or do some stand-up boarding, this is the place for you. Otherwise, there is not much to do except walk the tram trails. There were surprisingly few birds or other wildlife for viewing. It's about 10 miles to the local town of Dunnellon. I'd return here. - SunStar203

Actual price came to $34.63 with taxes and additional fees for a non-resident.
The bathroom $ showers were a big disappointment and in need of a thorough cleaning. "Built up scum and crud on the tile. Bugs in the florescent light fixtures...ugh! Heater in the bath house did not work. Whose is in charge of maintenance?
Nice back in site with plenty of space, fairly level.
You'll track in a lot of sand into your unit.
Verizon worked well and we received a few over the air stations. - thetravelkids

This is a beautiful state park on the Rainbow River. The access to the river is a long walk from the campsite, though, and you can't drive to it to launch your kayak. You have to carry it all the way (too far for oldsters like us), or borrow one of the carts which you need to walk back up & return to the office. That was disappointing, but the campground itself is really nice. Very large sites with ample space between them and lots of vegetation that affords a lot of privacy. The restroom/showers were very clean and bright and there's a bench in each of the shower compartments so you can sit to change. There is also a washer and dryer outside of each building on a covered patio. Sort of a weird setup having them outdoors, but at least they have them. At $30 for FHU, I thought it was a bit on the expensive side, especially since they have a dump station so we didn't need the onsite sewer connections, but I gather everything around here is pretty expensive. It was very quiet except for some cows carrying on in the distance. Very little road noise. No wi-fi, and I got three bars on Verizon. I would probably return because even at $30, it's cheaper than the RV parks in the area. - Pdxjoanne

Even though we didn't have horses they were kind enough to offer us a horse site in order to accommodate our 40' motorhome. The bathrooms/showers were clean. We loved it here. The sites are spacious but with no shade. There is 50 AMP hook ups and water but no sewer. The charge for the sewer dumping is $5.00. We had my parents with me so they charged us for the night senior discounts. Its beautiful and quiet here a must if you are in the area and enjoy nature!!! - NPC

Well maintained site. Half price for over 65 or handicapped Florida residents. Spacious gravel sites, well drained. Everyone we met was friendly. Host campers well informed. Extremely quiet. Some sites reserved for horse trailers. Also facilities for day equestrians. Lots of horse trails. One of the best kept secrets in the Ocala area. We will camp here again. - jilldon
