Small, nice campground. Obviously, a very popular place for mountain biking enthusiasts. We rode the "easy" trails. The trails are fun and nicely maintained. Our biggest complaint is with the restroom/bathhouse. It really needs a good cleaning. My husband described the men's shower as "grody" and he's not near as picky as me. Also, no toilet paper or paper towels in the men's the first couple of days there. The campground and campsites were litter and cigarette butt free. There were caterpillars crawling all over the place and made for sitting outside not a pleasant experience. Obviously, out of the control of the campground, just the wrong time of year. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Easy check-in. Several restaurants and grocery stores within five miles of the CG. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Outside loop sites are shady; inside loop sites have little to no shade.

This is a sweet, clean park offering a wonderful place to relax. The 25 campsites are spread out around a large, paved loop. There are a few overhanging trees that brushed the top of our RV. The dirt/gravel pads are flat, and did not get muddy even after a pouring rain. Each site has a picnic table. There is a central bath house and they have two pavilions. There is an area for Scout camping. The park has no other amenities other than access to equine, bike and walking trails. There is a dump that can be used on the way out. There is a bit of road noise from 301, and there is a nearby train track. Track noise and whistles are evident, but not totally obnoxious. The park does not offer a fenced area for dogs. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground was small but laid out nicely. Their were two loops. One was just for scouts and tenters. Sites were spaced out with one bathhouse in the center. The bathhouse was dated but clean. Only one toilet and 2 showers in each one. No heat for those cold nights when showering. 80 miles of bike trails at the Santo's traihead with an obstacle and a small, no crank track to use. Quiet place with some train noise and highway noise from 301/27 but not unbearable. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

Great park for bike riding on the nearby trails. Large sites mostly shaded with 50 amp and water, but no sewer system. Might be a problem with TV viewing if you use satellite due to the tree canopy (which needs to be trimmed on some sites to avoid tree scratches). We got a few local stations on the RV antenna. Hosts were great, very helpful, and on top of cleaning the sites as soon as one became empty. It's about 2 1/2 miles to grocery stores etc. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

Santos has great bike trails for FL and this campground is the most convenient to the trail head. Sites are spaced out and offer fire ring & picnic table. Some of the sites are treed too heavily for satellite to work easily or to put out your awnings. Water & electric at each site with dump station across from trash area. Lots of bikers come in on the weekend and the convenience station gets trashed and not cleaned until Monday afternoon. Some traffic noise from 441 and also a nearby train track. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice small State Park just off US 441 South of Ocala. Would rate higher, but sites are unlevel. Trees could be a problem for slides and, especially, awnings. Had to relocate to a different site due to not being able to level my 39' coach. Second site was slightly better. Sites are not as long as represented. They are on an angle to the road and the length measurements are taken on the "long" side of the sites. Also a lot of US 441 traffic noise and several loud trains. Did not really bother me, but it is loud and continuous. Park very clean and staff extremely friendly. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice small park. I think that they were short on hosts for the campground, as it was full for the week end and the restrooms were a mess and not cleaned til Monday. There was a host site that was open, so I am thinking that was the trouble. The host Monday through Friday was great. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Site gravel back-in. No sewer, but excellent dump station on way out of park. Only a few TV channels off antenna. Some sites open enough for satellite TV. Other sites in the trees offer more privacy. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this park. It would be a 10 if they had sewer hook ups. It is located very close to many Ocala area RV dealers. We were referred to the park by the dealer from which we bought our RV. Extremely clean. It is located at the trail head of a popular mountain biking trail. We camped at Santos Trailhead & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
