Welcome to Camp REJO!CE

The Lord has blessed us with 15 acres of primitive forest and wetlands on 500 ft of the historic Suwannee River!

Enjoy primitive tent camping with all of God's little creatures! What's been spotted: turkey, wild pig, raccoon, opossum, armadillo, deer, rabbits, squirrels, owls, hawks, eagles, birds of all kinds, jumping gulf sturgeon, various fish, turtles, alligators, frogs, snakes, skinks, spiders, centipedes, lightning bugs, butterflies and even a Florida panther!

*Small camper, sleeper van, truck or car site available. See our other listings.

Ditch the cellphones and TV...disconnect, relax and get back to the basics! Enjoy fishing, kayaking, swimming, exploring or just lounging in a hammock near the fire or right on the river. Make yourself at home in a safe, family environment centered around our Lord.

We are brand new to Hipcamp and are offering a super low rate while we make improvements to the property and get the swing of things. Some of the projects you may see us working on is: log bridge, a hiking path around entire property and more.

Also, we hold a Bible study right on the river every Saturday from 2pm-4pm...for those of you who would like to partake in fellowship. No physical church, no tithing, no denomination...just straight reading of the Holy Scriptures.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!" -Philippians 4:4

Beautiful area with great fishing in the Suwanee river. Could use a better defined path from parking to the camp site as all of the members of my party got lost going to the car at least once.

Response from Michael & April, the Host, on June 21st, 2022

Praise the Lord that you all found your way, primitive camping can definitely be like that sometimes. Thank you for bearing with us, we are quite literally the cheapest place to Hipcamp in Florida right now...as stated in the description of our listings: "We are brand new to Hipcamp and are offering a super low rate while we make improvements to the property..." Happy camping & God bless you
