Our property is best described and primitive and family friendly. The property has lots of pine and oak trees. It's great for stargazing as there is no light pollution. We're about an hour to the beach.  There's miles and miles of exciting off-roading available for ATVs, trucks and motorcycles. We're 18 minutes away from a beautiful lake with cypress trees, 24 miles from The Caverns, 25 minutes away from Pitt and Sylvan clear Springs.  The property is very close to medium fast flowing rivers that are great for kayaking/canoeing or tubing. Additionally, if you have a boat there is a rather large lake about 15 minutes away (Compass Lake) all with easy boat ramps. There’s a grocery store and gas station only 3.2 miles away.   Come and enjoy this primitive camping experience!

Secluded spot in the woods. Perfect spot for hammocks and tent camping. Lots of signs with easy access. Did hear dogs barking a lot but it wasn’t an inconvenience. Was nice to check out from life in the woods.

R & R at Secluded Forest!
A great host, excellent wildlife spotting opportunities, and natural, peaceful surroundings made our stay at Secluded Forest memorable and enjoyable. During our stay at Secluded Forest, my husband and I opted to set up camp at site #1. The drive-up camping plot was well-maintained and clean, and we had access to many great amenities included a fire ring, walking trails, outdoor toilet, shower, potable water, and more. Our host, Mark, did a fantastic job giving this primitive Hipcamp a cozy, comfortable vibe. All around the property, colorful, handmade signage pointed to and demarcated features, facilities, and pathways. It’s evident that a lot of love and creativity went into making this lovely property truly wonderful and special. The grounds of Secluded Forest were both open and shaded. There are suitable spots to relax and recreate in any season. Those trees that provided so much shade are home to so many colorful birds. My husband and I were amazed by the robust celebration of birdsong and feathered fluttering heard in the morning just outside our tent. For a superb, comfortable, safe, and convenient location, Secluded Forest is an excellent choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and would certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a laid-back, relaxing atmosphere. Thank you for your hospitality, Mark! This has been our favorite Florida Hipcamp!

Spontaneous Camping
I was a huge fan of the camping lots here. It was a last second find. Secluded and well separated for my hammock/tarp setup. Mark was very friendly and helpful if we needed anything. The only downside was the wood was scarce but had enough to have a small fire to cook 3 meals. I’m thinking of making this my normal spot to camp monthly!

Charming glamp site
I booked this site for the star gazing reviews and I was absolutely delighted with how dark it got. Beautiful stars. I was lucky to have clear weather that night. He is so creative in how he designed his property for camping too with charming signs everywhere for fun navigation. Beautiful area, lots of plants, even provides firewood, water, potty, and shower. Some sites have electrical cord. And some firepits have a rack to help cook. It's practically glamping! He is such a sweetheart and loves nature.

Nice primitive camping
Very nice secluded primitive camping. Nice level sand areas to pitch tents and good fire pits. The Pitt and Sylvan Springs 15 mins away offer an awesome refreshing natural swim. The only negative is the neighbors’ dogs who barked the whole night non-stop.

Book your trip! Worth it!
I don’t think we will ever find anyone as cool as mark, and as beautiful as his camp site. The good words I have to say about this man and his campsite are truly amazing. It is definitely secluded and so beautiful. We were a little worried about bugs, but this was the first place in Florida where we saw maybe 1/2 the ENTIRE time. The campsites are laid out so well. They’re huge, and have so much to offer. Mark was an amazing host and we couldn’t have scored better. He had no clue we were even the ones renting the campsite and saw we looked concerned and rushed out there to see if he could help. (We got there super late, and he is not lying about how dark it gets). I told him we were camping and couldn’t find the sit and that’s when we learned it was him. He led us to the campsite, and was super generous. He offered us a grill, he had electrical cords running to the site so my children could sleep with fans and our phones would stay charged. If we had questions he answered right away. He goes extremely out of his way to make sure you all are happy, and enjoy your stay. He offered us chairs, a battery charger, a wheel barrow, and even had our fire pits set and ready to be lit upon arrival! Our first night we accidentally left the door open so our battery died, though mark had to head out for work he didn’t hesitate to stay behind and make sure our vehicle started so we could run to the near by beautiful springs! His outside shower with hot water was truly a dream. Will be back!

Very nice host
The host is a really cool dude, his dogs are adorable. There's a lovely shower close to his RV, he just fixed the fence so campers can take a shower without his dogs saying hi lol. He has a power cord ran out so it's awesome to charge your phones or run a fan or something. Sites are big and plenty of room some have places you can set up a hammock. There are trash bins around the area. It is down a dirt road so wouldn't recommend a small car but it is doable, when it's dry it's just sugar sand so likely will slip around. Definitely recommend the stay though, power makes a big difference for us lol

We got to Mark’s land after a long day of traveling, and the path to the campsites and amenities were very well marked. The campsites were spaced out enough so that you and your group will truly feel secluded. I get why their are such great reviews, Mark is a friendly host with a great place for everyone to enjoy.

Amazing place & amazing host!
Beautiful camping area. Mark has everything! What a great host. So quiet and you can hear the peacocks across the street. It was incredible to look up and not have any light pollution. Mark answered all my questions super quick before I even booked. Got to bring my Great Dane and Mark was super understanding. The property is amazing. I had to leave early but plan on coming back in the next week or two!

Super secluded
I loved camping here. It really felt like we had the place all to ourselves. The camp sites are well thought out so we really didn’t know we had neighbors until we ran into each other getting fresh well water. The host is great. Super laid back and welcoming. The hot shower was fabulous. We will definitely be back.

I camped on Mark’s land for two nights recently. The sites were private, yet all pertinent amenities were a short walk away (water spicket, outdoor shower, latrine, etc..) There were many natural springs and scenic sites to visit in the area. Mark was a very helpful host and contributed in making my stay both comfortable and worry-free.

3 dogs and myself ina Skoolie!
I was in a skoolie and had the full hookup sight.. electric,water,sewage. Everything worked as stated! Mark was very specific about the site and understood my needs plus my skoolie is 44ft long. Not the easiest to get around in but we made it with no issues. I would recommend Mark's Secluded Forest to anyone! I'm totally disabled and I was safe and felt safe my entire visit. Nice area to relax and unwind!

All around great campsite :)
One of the best campsites I’ve stayed at while using the app! Mark was very friendly and creative, so we were able to appreciate all the work and personality he put into the campground. The outdoor shower was the best shower I had in my life. Sites 2 & 3 are great for hammock camping. 10/10 would recommend staying at secluded forest.

It was nice! The sites have enough brush and trees and space so you have privacy yet you are also close enough to not feel alone. I enjoyed hearing the laughter and soft music from the other sites.
