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. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

We absolutely loved this place! While there is not a lot of the "extra" kid type things to do, there is a playground and the kids loved checking out everyone's horses. If you're looking for a place to get out to the middle of nowhere, look at the stars, enjoy the country, and not worry about city life, this is your place. Goethe State Forest is across the street and we enjoyed walking the trails. The onsite store was a big plus and we enjoyed every one of the staff members. The only drawback was the ticks we brought back from the walk in the forest and then followed us home. Just be careful and you get rid of them quick. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

This is, by far, the best campground that I have stayed in. The sites are huge, with a wonderful concrete drive leading to each site. Its way out in the country, across from the Goethe State Park. They have wonderful facilities for horses, so you can vacation with your horse, and have 120 miles of trails right across the road. The stars are bright at night, as there are no city lights nearby. The place is great for bicycling, hiking, trail riding, horse events, and just for quiet getaways. The folks here treat you like family. The campground is pristine. Its beautifully maintained and clean. The campground is new, and is just gorgeous. The horse stalls and facilities are wonderful. You can take care of your horse yourself, or for a fee, they will take care of it for you. If you don't ride, but would like to, there is a trail ride group up the road. There are beaches not too far away, as well as quaint small towns. There are rivers and lakes with boat rentals. A major city is within 85 miles for serious shopping, theme parks and other city stuff. This place has it all! Call them for more info, or go to their website. You'll be glad you did. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a new RV park that specializes in Horse events and trail riding. Check out their website for more details. Pros: The sites are huge. The driveways are concrete with grassy sites. The park is located in the country and is very peaceful. There is a well stocked convenience store on site. The folks running the place are very friendly. Cons: Some of the sites are fairly unlevel, although I had no problems with my 38' coach. Not much going on around the property when I was there. May be a little boring for kids. I enjoy peace and quiet and being able to view wide open skies at night. This is the place for doing just that! Major shopping is within 15 miles of the campground. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Motorhome.
