Enjoyed staying here while visiting Gainesville. Seen some improvements in the tent sites, spacious yet tucked away from the rest of the property, with a picnic table and fire pit. Very nice place to get away from the crowds and just relax among the trees. Nothing fancy just your basics surrounded by nature.

Exactly as advertised! Quiet secluded spot with everything we needed. We stayed here for a gator game and it was perfect. Only a 10 minute drive to the stadium. Thanks Charles for a great stay.

It’s a very specious area with fire pits and little trails to walk around on. My dog and I really enjoyed our car camping stay there. I would stay there again.

Picked this spot for a close getaway. Very nice property with large trees and a creek. Bathroom, shower and drinkable water source were very nice!
