Located just 2 miles from Santos Trailhead

Make yourselves comfortable on this conveniently located large, level, grassy area and use it as your base camp for day trips to several local recreational spots. Located just 2 miles from Santos Trailhead well known for its mountain biking, hiking,, and horse back riding. Only 9..9 Miles to Silver Springs State Park- for kayaking , the famous glass bottom boats and scenic trails. Approximately 13 miles to the World Equestrian Center where you’ll find special events planned throughout the year. Under an hour will get you at Rainbow Springs and Juniper Springs, and only 2 hours to Disney World or Daytona Beach.

The wood line and large Sycamore tree create privacy and shade for part of the day. The site is located at the rear of the property far enough to give privacy from the neighbors and the main house.

This site is just 15 minutes from I-75 and just minutes from 441 .

I had a great multi-day stay on Janice's property. I would highly recommend staying here. Especially for bikers using the Santos trailhead, the location is perfect and convenient! She has a big, nice, perfectly flat yard which worked well for my tent. Additionally, she has a nice toilet system set up for her guests. Janice is very kind and went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable and enjoying my stay. She also offered good recommendations for things to do in the area.

Enjoyed a relaxing night tent camping, appreciated the friendly hospitality! So close to some of my favorite parts of Florida; springs and hiking and biking trails. Looking forward to the next opportunity to stay here, maybe it won’t rain quite so hard. But f it does, that’ll be fine, it’ll still be a great stay.

Hey Mark, so glad you got some rest despite the downpour. Hopefully if you are in Ocala again you’ll choose Frisbie’s and the weather will cooperate!

The campsite is a must for anyone who is riding nearby at santos. The location is the closest to the trails and is very secluded

Janice was very welcoming and extremely accommodating, we were able to do everything we planned to do, in a peaceful, quiet place.
When you compare to other options around here (rv Park, campground,..) this place is by far the cheapest and most convenient. It is very close to Silver Springs State Park.
WiFi is a great plus and having access to a fire pit let us enjoy the evening outside longer than we usually do.
Janice is very nice and always here if you need anything.
