Perfect spot to set up and enjoy Florida's great outdoors! Convenient to Atlantic Ocean, fresh water springs, state forest and more. If you're in town for an event, come and go day or night. Historically, Cozy Freedom was occupied by the Timucuan Indians who hunted the forest and swamp land. More recent history of the property included a nursery and beekeeping location. Now, surrounded by horse farms and state forest, nature abounds. There's organic produce growing in fall, winter and spring. Ornamental nursery items are also being propagated. We have citrus trees and blueberry bushes, ginger and turmeric. Our resident bats help with the mosquitos. Our friendly four-legged friends romp around and are all very loveable. What else do you need to achieve cozy freedom?! Learn more about this land: A serene location with 33,000 acres of state forest backing up to the property, an 11-mile direct run east into the Atlantic Ocean, and less than an hour from spectacular blue-water springs. Day trips to St. Augustine, Orlando, Cape Canaveral and Ocala.  Visit local Old Florida sites nearby, including Bulow Plantation Ruins, Tomoka State Park, and Barberville Pioneer Settlement. Take a day to hike or bike out in Tiger Bay State Forest without having to drive off the farm, or enjoy just hanging out on the farm. Outdoor kitchen, hot/cold private shower and designated campsites on 8+ acres.  Working produce/nursery farm.  Electric and water available at all sites and options available for remote tent sites without access to electric and water. Summers are hot and wet and mosquitos will drive you inside from mid-June through to the end of August. Wintertime is peaceful and ideal for camping in Florida. We do have some nights that drop into the 30's, but most days are perfect to be outside. Enjoy staying put on the farm or safely leaving your belongings while visiting the sights in the area.  Someone is always nearby onsite, but privacy is respected. Property is situated on a thoroughfare between Ocala and Ormond Beach with audible traffic, so not ideal for individuals seeking absolute silence.

My boyfriend and I have never used hipcamp before and this was a great first experience! There is a shower and community kitchen which is so nice when you are tent camping. If you like birding we woke up to a red shoulder hawk calling from a near by tree and saw two American kestrels!! We loved it!

Farmer Rich is an amazing host. He helped us out as soon as we arrived, and he even rolled over a wagon barrel full of firewood for us. Amazing experience, we had so much fun! We love you Richie you are the man🤙🏼

Cozy,comfy, & great vibes!
We had absolutely the best time camping at Earth Perks! Easily one of the best camping experiences ever. Farmer Rich was a wonderful host and went above and beyond to give my children a memorable experience. The property is beautiful and has so many extras that make camping here comfortable. I came with my 7 year and 4 year old and they are I love. Watching the bats at night and the Rocky the Dog was super friendly. Honestly, we just felt a great energy here and we have a lot of experience at different campgrounds. But Farmer Rich’s authentic hospitality and kind nature is something that will be remembered for years. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend camping here to anyone. Personally I know me and the kids will be back every chance we get.

We had a great stay at the farm. Site 3 in the back is very private and has 30 amp and water. Scenery was great and there was a screened room near the campsite with a kitchen and supplies. There are also 2 bat houses on the farm and seeing the multitude of bats come out in the evening was amazing and I’m assuming this was also the reason there weren’t many mosquitoes. Farmer Rich was very accessible if needed. Was a great stay and will stay there again when in the area!

Farmer Rich, Mindy and BATS!
We had an AMAZING time at Farmer Rich and Mindy's place! They were so sweet and accommodating... the site was great and had many necessary amenities like the kitchen area and outhouse....lots of hiking on property too. They also have bat houses and the evening bat exodus was SO cool! We definitely hope to come back and visit with them again soon!

A wonderful experience! Very friendly hosts who helped me get set up, checked in, but also provided ample privacy. Site 1 is private, a short walk to great showers, bathroom, kitchen- everything I needed. Cute little set up with an outdoor table, fire pit, even some flowers waiting for me! Accessible location. Some road noise, but not too much. Definitely stay here!

Farmer Rich and Mindy were great hosts. They made us feel at home. They were helpful and friendly when we needed them, but otherwise they let us be alone. The site was clean and quiet. We would camp there again in a heartbeat.

Everything we needed and more.
We had an incredible time out on the farm in our campervan! Mindy and Rich were wonderful hosts and the campsites are setup great. Clean 15amp electricity and water, hot outdoor shower, great little fire pits. We’d definitely stay here again for bike week or even if we’re just passing through.

Great spot to stay!
We had a lovely private, wooded, clean spot with a picnic table, fire pit, electric and water. The outdoor shower with on-demand hot water was refreshing. The compost toilet worked well. This was the first Hipcamp we stayed where Wifi was available, so that was a plus! Mindy and Rich were very personable, and Mindy was great in giving us recommendations on beaches or other attractions to visit. Being close to the highway (noise) in this spot didnt bother us, as we slept with a fan on in any event. Would recommend this Hipcamp!

Camping with Rock
Fantastic people that really took care of us and made sure we were setup for success to see the Daytona 500. Rock the dog is the absolute man and is super friendly and adorable. 10/10 would come back to stay again

My husband and I only spent 1 night on the farm but farmer Rich and Mindy were very accommodating. We would come back for a longer stay. It is very private but yet only a few miles away from everything. Dogs are welcome!

Easy camping, and animal friendly.
It'd been a little bit since I've gone camping, so this was great all around. I generally describe hipcamps to fall into 1 of 3 categories. Primitive, glamping/hotel experience, or something in between. Staying at their place falls in the latter category. They provide an easy location, easy parking. Showers, bathroom, kitchen, etc... It's as easy as you want it to be! If you have a camper or RV, they even have water and electric hookups. Since we stayed in a tent, it's technically still kind of primitive, but in the most loose sense of the word. The hosts couldn't have been easier or nicer to communicate with on top of it all! I've already recommended this location to friends and family, and wouldn't hesitate to come on back.

Camping on a Farm!? Sign me up!
Rich and Mindy have a lovely space that they share with their campers. Between the outdoor kitchen with the perfect view of the garden and bat-house to access to state forest trails directly behind their property to sharing their leafy greens (as a chef, adding some curly green and purple kale to my dinners was exceptional), this really is a little slice of heaven. There’s a bit of street noise off of SR 40, but it’s not enough to scare me off in the future. Too beautiful to hardly notice the noise. I’ll be back, and soon!

Awesome Farm with Wonderful Hosts!
We had the best time at Earthperks Farm! Mindy and Farmer Rich were so welcoming and just super kind, good people! We loved learning about the farm and checking out the beautiful land! The kids had a blast pulling carrots and planting seeds! Farmer Rich even gave them a ride on the tractor! Thank you so much Mindy and Farmer Rich for the perfect getaway! We will be back soon, and next time we are going to stay in their ADORABLE camper!
