We try to camp here once a year. The lake is back open after years of being closed due to low water levels. There is a sandy beach area for swimming and canoe rentals are very reasonable. This is a park where the bathrooms and showers are always clean enough that we all shower in them instead of in the camper. Staff is continuously riding around so the park is VERY clean. On our last trip we had our Girl Scouts out and it was very challenging for them to find ANY litter to pick up, LOL! The trails are a highlight here. There are large ravines and streams with heavy shade. Very cool and scenic hike. - FloridaRVfamily

Very interesting geological features. Located in a remote area among ancient sink holes that have filled with clear blue water. Park has several lakes with white sand beaches. A ravine is a feature in this park with a hiking trail that travels through the ravine along a creek that bubbles out of the ground and flows into one of the lakes. Park is set in pine flats and is busy in winter so book ahead. We would stay here again. - JC69

The campground has a lot of wildlife. We saw turtles, wild turkeys, and deer. The sites could be spread out because the park is huge. The only disappointment was that there was no sewer available. The work camper was wonderful and very knowledgeable. - Francy

We stayed here during a NHRA event. The park has deteriorated markedly since we were last here. A large number of sites are blocked because their electrical service is unreliable. The lights have failed and not been repaired. The park accepts any type of vehicle and many of the long term residential units would not be welcome in most parks. The park used to be gated but the gate failed. Instead of fixing the gate, a bypass was created. I guess the reason the park is failing is that unless you need a place to live, there is no reason for stopping here. - Ras2

Excellent park. Stopped here with friends on the way to a rally and stopped again on the way back home. The park manager was extremely friendly and helpful. Nice and clean sites. Would definitely come back again when in the area. - adhowell0709

Enjoyed our stay. Paved roads, paved sites and patios. Bathrooms were immaculate. This is a new park. Grass was neat and trimmed. The overall setting is very enjoyable. Managers were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had directions to RV parts store which we needed and (of course) WalMart which is only about 7 or 8 miles away. There is a restaurant and an Arby's within walking distance and many other places to eat not far away. Gas and diesel is available just outside of the park. We will definitely be stopping here when traveling on Hwy 301. Much better traveling through Florida than fast-paced, hectic I-75. We prefer to "stop and smell the roses"! - Godwin

We stayed here for 4 days on our way back north and I had a chance to talk with the new owner. Be prepared for some improvements. Our site was very long and spacious and level gravel. Very clean park and I would stay again if in the area. - easlingn

The current managers have a problem with animals. If your fur baby is not silent, you will have problems. I have been here for nearly a year with no problem until now. Also, the park floods like crazy, literally ankle deep. One of the residence collects beer cans, there are hundreds and hundreds all over his yard. Drinking is okay, pets are not. The fishing pond is just drainage from the flooding. Never heard of anyone catching anything. - justgracie

KOA 10% discount for three nights. The site was a long asphalt pull-through site with FHU and 50 amps. There was a good sized concrete patio adjacent to the pad. We had good Verizon cell and MiFi reception and good satellite reception. The park's WiFi was slow. The parks interior roads are very narrow, but easily navigated. - Dave51

The rate reflects a KOA discount, and is for a pull thru, 50amp full hookup "premium" site. This KOA is somewhat better than the average KOA as it is well laid out, and the sites are easy to get in and out of. The park is right off highway 301 on the south side of Starke, with much shopping nearby. The roads in the park are paved, our site was asphalt paved with a small concrete patio. Wifi did not work well, but we had good Verizon and AT&T service for voice and data. We did not use the park cable, but many of the sites do have good satellite access. If satellite access is needed we suggest that you make this request when making your reservation as many of the sites will not allow for this due to large trees. - Johnson's

Probably best KOA we've used over 17 year MH. Stayed here 1 night while traveling. Did not leave park except to buy some cokes at the shopping center next door, thru the 8am to 8pm walking gate. Pleasant and helpful staff along with the nicest and cleanest showers we've used. Easy entry of FL 301 with good cable tv, but so-so wifi. Never have had a good wifi in all our years, so we use a Verizon hot spot. Interesting gate to the shopping center adjacent - which we used. We stayed here in a class B MH, no slides or toad. We would go out of our way to stay here again. - KAZIMIRA

This is a great park, nicely shaded along a lake front. I was only staying one night and didn't want to unhitch so the concrete pad on space 11 was great. I arrived late. As far as I could tell, and from the info from other campers, there wasn't a shower and restroom facility anywhere nearby available. Aside from that it was top notch. I would stay again. To get there, enter the main gate on Hwy 16, then make the first left, then an immediate first right down to the water front, then turn left and follow the shoreline for about 2 miles. - Colorado Vagabond

Military / National Guard ONLY. Must enter at main gate on Rt. 16 - don't believe guidance from GPS to go to other gates. Many sites spread out over three camp grounds overlooking lake. Many nicely shaded sites. Many boaters were at camp. "New" camp ground is best with nice concrete pads and shade. Difficult to reserve by phone - office closed on weekends and after 16:00. About 1/2 way between Jacksonville and Gainesville. Out in the country and quiet. - TravelerRog

We rerouted here when we had a change in plans over the July 4th weekend. We were shocked that anyone had a site available...and we were REALLY shocked when we arrived on July 1 and saw about 60% of the sites open! But by the morning of the 4th, there was maybe 10% occupied. And most of those are owned sites.
This is an ATV lovers dream! Most of the folks that were there on the weekend had ATVs with them....so it was NOT quiet! But when they left it was really peaceful!
When you arrive, they let you drive around and pick your own site. Pay attention to where the trees are, if you're looking for some shade. There's not a lot of it....but if you plan carefully you'll get some.
The bathrooms were clean and the shower stalls were probably the most beautiful I've ever seen at a campground! We didn't use them, but I did look and they were awesome!
2 negatives here..... 1) The amazing renovated laundry facility is awesome...but they have hookups for about 20 washers and 10 driers (give or take) but they only have 4 tiny washers and 2 driers. And they didn't have air conditioning, which is understandable....and the windows all open....but there are NO fans! Hot, steamy and stagnant in there! Just a couple of ceiling or box fans would be a huge improvement!
2) There was an outage in the water system.... no water from 6 PM Saturday to at least 11PM.... We understand that "stuff happens"... But the next day at 9:00 AM we were informed of a boil water situation and that it would be in effect until they say otherwise.... We left Tuesday at noon and we were never told of it being lifted. So was it lifted and were never told?
Overall, it's a great place....just needs some tweaks here and there. And there's not much to do....or stores nearby. So plan accordingly! - doggpurr

Tried to get into Salt Springs and it was full, then tried Rodman and there were full, then found this gem, we stayed for the weekend, was a hidden gem. Loved the hiking trails, and the lots were very spacious. Plan on cooking at your RV as there are no stores or restaurants for a ways, you are out in the middle of the Ocala Forest. Staff were very friendly, terrific views, beautiful lake , sunrises and sunsets are awesome. The park has a huge pool. The grounds are immaculate. Bath houses are very clean and showers are spacious. Great park also if you like to ATV as they have ATV trails. We cannot wait to go back there. Prices are very reasonable. The site are HUGE. Did I mention the friendly staff. While there take a trip to Rodman Dam, out of this world. - ladymac2015

This park has changed over or is the process of becoming a KOA. The pool was awesome. Being able to ride an ATV from the park to Ocola OHV area was awesome. Grass sites are somewhat level and bathhouse was clean. They need to get firewood and a better stocked camp store. This park is far from anything so bring what you need. The WiFi was useless but I did have a weak ATT signal. I would stay here if I was riding an ATV but other than that unless you fish its limited. - DS650

This was our second time staying in the park. Everything was clean and the staff was friendly. They are cost cutting so no soap in the women's bathroom (men's bathroom had soap) and no fans running (unless they are cleaning). Bring your kayak, bring your fishing poles and/or boat, bring your bikes, and bring your hiking shoes. There are many places in and out of the park to enjoy outdoor recreation. The town of Palatka is about 10 miles away and has everything you forgot to bring. St. John's River is not far. No Internet or tv reception (unless you have a satellite, which we don't). Sites are roomy and shaded. They also offer tent camping, but watch out for the rattlesnake. We only saw him once and he was a beauty. - bicyclecampers

In Section 2, the bathroom is on the side of the campground near the Handicapped sites. The other side of the campground, near the canal has to walk around the hill in between the 2 roads. All sites in this section have curbs that you drive over to get into your site. The curbs made it hard to use my mobility scooter to visit friends - I could get over the curb into the site but had a very hard time getting back to the road. Sites on the canal side are shady. - pegdiver

Very well maintained. Excellent staff. Stayed in Phase II on the canal. Good view and sites angled for privacy. Phase I under trees, also good. Lot of hiking available and excellent asphalt roads to bike. Visit the dam area, walk along the canal to the Buckman Locks. Fishing, kayaking good. 50/30/20amp. Primitive camping is really nice. Park was quiet and relaxing the week we were there. Worth going back to. Firewood & ice available. - GDoug

The name says it all. This is an access to two lakes. There is a boat ramp, docks and bait and tackle shop. The RV sites are grass with a small concrete pad for a patio/picnic table. The longer term residents are friendly and helpful as is the owner/manager. It is pretty much out in the country surrounded by Wildlife Management Areas and close by a state park. We would stay here again if in the Gainesville area. - trailertraveler
