This is a well maintained campground that is ideal for nature lovers who want peace and quiet. It is off the beaten path. The dock is well maintained and has a boat/kayak launching area. The lots on the water are beautiful. The lots are large and many are shaded. This is a hidden gem. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is 10 miles from Old Town situated on the Swanee River. They have a mix of sites with live oaks all over. The roads are hard packed sand as are the sites. We arrived early afternoon to visit Manatee Springs State Park across the river. The campground rents pontoon boats in case you don't want to drive all the way around to the state park via Old Town. We rented a pontoon, headed up river to the park, docked at the state park and swam in the 72 degree springs. The cable tv was decent with about 20 channels, the hosts were friendly, and didn't hear about any of the rules the previous reviewer mentioned. I also didn't see but a few cabins, so I'm not sure what the reviewer was referring to about all the park models and long-term residents. Very nice showers and restrooms, all tile. The laundry was big and airy I think there were about 7 each of washers and dryers. A nice park, that served its purpose for us. A nice stop on the way home from Orlando. We would definitely come back! We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

I have been staying at this park for the past 5 years periodically throughout the year. Not sure if they have taken on new management or what is happening here. It is still a beautiful park and one of the prettiest I have ever stayed at traveling throughout the US, however, the personnel have changed drastically. Every time I go there it appears more and more permanent residence are moving in. Many now have large decks and have made it a home. The atmosphere is terrible and the campground manager, which is a big gentleman who wears a campground security shirt many of the days, makes you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. This in turn makes me wonder if going back for the river justifies my family feeling uneasy, especially since they feel they need a security man to patrol and make sure people know things are done his way or you may be removed from the campground. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground, spent 3 days, staff very friendly and obliging. We notice while here, maintenance and improvements to the campground seem to be an ongoing, though in no way was this a problems. They seem to be very discreet and mindful of their guests. I would go again. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America discount. Very friendly staff, right on river if you like to fish. Showers and bath are combo in separate rooms, very CLEAN. Only problem was the "no see-um's". We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

We come here again and again. It's less than 3 hrs from home, but might as well be 1000 miles away. We leave our work and worries behind. It's beautiful, peaceful and perfect. So quiet and clean. Few children, if any. Wonderful waterfront with nice docks. Rent a pontoon boat - it's great. The owners are very nice pet friendly people. It's obvious that they love it here too. The sun on the water is breathtaking, and there are plentiful fish below the surface. It's our choice for a quick getaway. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground was great place to stay. The sites were very big and very shaded. The roads were white sand but not messy. Everything was clean and kept up. The staff were all very nice and friendly. The office manger went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable (thanks). The park is very quiet. It is located on the Suwanne River. If you like peace and quiet, this is for you. Fishing and boating is right here. The only drawback was the nearest town is 9 miles away. The nearest shopping is about 30 miles away. So do your shopping for food before you get there. Our AT&T cellphones did not work and our AT&T Wi-Fi did not work. Other than that, it was avery nice 2 weeks. We will go back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

The water at this campground is very poor quality. It's yellowish brown and rusty. Our clothes were ruined in the washer because of the bad water. Surely this can't be healthy to drink?!! We have camped at this campground in the past and the same problem existed then so apparently it's not a concern for them. We will not camp here again.

Very clean, staff was helpful as we had to reschedule due to flu. Some other campers were somewhat rude and allowed pets to run loose, however not the campgrounds fault tho. Only problem, the sites are small. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has an old Florida feel however it is very dusty and buggy. The long road in is all sand and dust. It's right on the Suwannee River, though, and is very picturesque. I was surprised by a previous reviewer's comments that there was no sewer and no 50 amp. I had both. I stayed here years ago before they had built the pool and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We rented a pontoon boat from the campground and watched the manatees. This time not so much. I was using the place as a two night stopover (they take Passport) and had a lot of computer work to do. The Wi-Fi doesn't accommodate Macs! The owner was very helpful and put me on the phone with the geek in town who had set it up, but he had no idea how to help. He said more people have PCs so he doesn't worry about it. I guess he hasn't looked at Apple stock prices lately. Anyway, I got my money back and moved to a campground down the road. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is in a great scenic place along the Suwannee River. Our site was on the river with a great view. Sites are dirt with some light gravel (level). Each site had a fire ring and most had very heavy tree cover. Cable TV was acceptable with 20 channels but almost no service for AT&T customers with marginal service for Verizon cell users. The park has way too many rules published even though we were not bothered by any of the staff looking for violations. LOL. Pool looks new and over view of park is very good. It is located 9 miles down the road from Old Town down a lime rock road and 15 miles from Chiefland where you can find Super Wal-Mart and grocery store. Yellow flies were out so we used a screen house around picnic table. Nice pavilion and clubhouse. You can purchase bags of ice from the office plus wood as you are not allowed to bring any wood into park. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

We loved this park; we own a campground and stay in many many parks when we travel. The pool area is really well done. The park is neat and tidy. The bathrooms are private and clean. Terrific owners, have done lots of work to make it a lovely park all around. We'd definitely come back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Motorhome.

Great RV park, wish I could spend more than 1 week. Clean bath and showers. Cable TV good. Wi-Fi untested. Large sand and gravel lot in the woods right on the river. Perfect view. Friendly crew. Water needs a filter and cell phone service weak. We will be back. We camped at Yellow Jacket Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The only reason I don't give it a higher score, is the boat ramp is a dirt and pebble ramp. It was very steep and hard to get a larger boat out. The site were very nice, with a great view of the river. very roomy and clean, with a friendly staff. 20 channels of cable, but all the right channels. We will go back.
