A well maintained and medium-sized RV park, quite a bit off the beaten track which means it's quiet. Very pleasant surroundings overall with lots of trees, palms, etc. Owner was pleasant and friendly. Fair WiFi (apparently better in other parts of the park than our site), moderately ok cable quality and good selection, and good Verizon signal. There were only two spots available when we arrived -- no reservations, just assurances, and only cash or check. There were a lot of one- and two-nighters coming through. We stayed 8 days and enjoyed them all. Our site hookups were all good, but no sewage. Since we left every other day to see some local attraction we used the dump each time, which worked fine for us. Some long-termers had portable dump tanks with wheels. Our water pressure was low, about 20psi, but seemed okay in the showers. Picnic table but no fire ring/pit/grill. And despite it being "in the middle of nowhere," there were a lot of things to do close-by. Private bathroom/showers which were clean. Two washers, two dryers in the laundry and they did a good job. Main path is paved, sites are sandy, grassy, pine needles. Everyone was friendly. Price was with Escapees discount. This is an excellent value! We would stay here again. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy 2.5 mile bike ride to local store, which is almost as good as a small Publix. Hardware store on the way, too. Nature Coast State Trail intersects in Old Town, and is a very, VERY nice bike trail. Nearby state parks with springs -- Fanning and Manatee -- were very pleasant outings. Wine tasting is free at Dakotah Vineyards. Interesting antique shop: Point Of View. Day trip to Cedar Key was well worth it.

The website says "full hookups", but only some sites have sewer - ours did not. Sand site, no social activities. Strange rule about lights off after 7 PM to avoid interfering with infrared security cameras.

On the plus side, it was very quiet. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in a 26' travel trailer for 2 months from mid-Nov. to mid-January. The campground has many long term/permanent residents in older RVs. The bathhouse was a single building with 2 separate rooms. They were very clean. The owner is very nice and extremely helpful. They were constantly working on the grounds, however, the old and mildewed permanent rigs, really detracted from what a good value this facility is.

Owner is very friendly and helpful. Sites are the real Florida - sand, dirt, leaves. Good spacing between sites. Very quiet, woodsy feeling. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Motorhome.

This friendly park is in a wooded area, typical terrain for this area of Florida: sand, grass, and pine needles. It's a natural environment that gets one's shoes sandy/messy when wet: good doormat necessary. There is plenty of room to maneuver. The trees are kept trimmed high so they do not interfere with RV sides/roof. The owner lives on site and is friendly, helpful, and readily available. It's a quiet place to stay for a few days of rest. It isn't fancy looking, but it is well maintained and offered a decent selection of cable TV channels. While this RV park is not open during summer months, it was a good place to stay when traveling down Hwy. 19 on the Gulf side of Florida. Recommend for adults and would definitely stay here again. Rate paid is at Escapees discount. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Price was right with the Passport America. Only 2 things to be concerned about. Get good directions to park, and most likely you will not get satellite if attached to your rig. "Cute" park with good owner. Not much to offer except a safe place with full hookups. Well maintained park for its age. Strict rules on noise!

Staying here was a pleasant experience. The owner provides a wealth of information and can be found easily for any questions. There are miles and miles of great bike trails nearby. The campground is very clean and extremely quiet, a feature we really enjoy. There are several tall pine trees providing some dappled shade. The people are friendly the sites allow for plenty of room. The rate we paid reflects an Escapees discount. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Motorhome.

This is just a wee place on the property of the landowner and host. It is a great place to spend the weekend just to chill out in your coach, but it doesn't have a lot to offer other than a completely wonderful host who is more than attentive and so friendly. We met some very nice folks here. Although I wouldn't call it a destination, it is definitely worth an overnight--laid back, pet friendly, a few fulltimers. It has a very small library in the office, and some bathrooms and laundry area, but that is about all. Heard all kinds of wildlife at night! Lovely area!

This park was very quiet. The owners are very friendly and take pride in their camp. It is not a destination RV Resort but is conveniently located near the many springs. Also very close to the Nature Coast Bicycle Trail. The water pressure was sufficient and the power was very good. Cable and WiFi worked very well. I would recommend this to anyone planning on exploring the area. We will return. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Motorhome.

Rustic campground with dirt roads and sand/grass sites. We were only there for an overnight at an electric/water site. Helpful, friendly owner. Campground was very neat and clean. Wi-Fi worked well, but cable quality was mediocre. We would stay here again. Rate was Passport America. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. Quiet, safe and well run. Owner takes pride in his service. Sites are level. Good A/C power - 120 volts. Sites are sand/crushed shells. Very well located in northwestern and central part of state. I would stay here again. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, very quiet park within an hour's drive of many things to do in this part of Florida. Fanning Springs, Manatee Springs, the Suwanee River, Gainesville, Cedar Key etc. Easy pull-throughs, good Wi-Fi coverage and cable. The owner is very accommodating and helpful. We stayed a week and would definitely return. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Motorhome.

Owner is a super nice owner and operator that is real helpful in steering you towards good food, things to do, and a great winery and vineyard. I gave them a nine because of my sewer being uphill, making it difficult to clean out. All in all, I think it is a great place to stay. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very quaint family-type park. The owner/operator was very friendly and showed us all the areas features. This park will be one of our favorites just for the friendliness. The shower and restrooms were extremely clean. The laundry needs some work. Everything in the immediate area was fun to explore. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.
