Great winter getaway for us 🌴😎
The setting was perfect! We appreciated having full hookup! We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay to get out of the snow back home. We also enjoyed going to flee markets, state parks & the national forests. It was very nice to have grocery’s and all conveniences very close. James B always was very prompt to answer any our questions. We definitely would come again.😀

Great covered parking with full hoo
The covered parking was really nice and would make a big difference in the Florida summer. Access was easy and it’s about an acre fenced in which was nice for our dogs. The hookups were great. We spent our time at the Santos Mtn biking trails so we didn’t go down to the lake. It was about a 10 min. drive away. This campground was much quieter than the Santos Campground. All in all a great place to stay. Thanks James

Never Again
We arrived and it took us at least 45 minutes before entering the gate. First we weren’t sure it was the correct gate because there wasn’t a sign or address. We called, texted, and emailed the owner with no response. A kid down the road yelled to us that we were at the correct location and gave us what he thought was the gate code. He was wrong. Finally the owner contacted us with the code. We thought our troubles were over. At 1:30 am another camper arrived and experienced the same troubles. They were not quite about it. Also, the kid told us we had access to the lake. Never found access or saw the pretty dock in the listing photos.

Great hipcamp if you have dogs!
This hipcamp was ideal for us. We have dogs and the large fenced in yard was perfect for them to be able to roam around and play in. The covered RV spot was really nice to keep us out of the sun. The site was large and the patio was great for pending time outside. It's a short walk to the dock on Lake Smith. We had an all around great time!

Having a fenced in area for the dogs to run free in was a huge bonus for us. We also loved having a full canopy over the camper with a grill, lounge chairs and fire wood.

Very nice place and a host that goes the extra mile. Greated us warmly our first night and was very responsive. He even left work to help pull us out after our tiny home got stuck in the sand and my truck blew a hose.(Because we parked in a different spot than intended) Lots of room to roam and play with the kids. We felt extra safe because it was totally fenced in with a gate. Definitely would stay again

James and Alexis were fantastic Hosts! Very communicative and even greeted us upon arrival. Any questions that we had, they responded promptly and timely. The pole barn, the land, the dock are all beautiful. Had electric water and sewer hookups, which allowed us to figure out our new travel trailer and all its features. We shared the pole barn with a lovely family for the holiday weekend. It’s a large pole barn and really, each space is of its own, with a picnic table and grill.

Great stay - quiet, spacious
We had a great stay on James' land. We were his first hipcampers, as this is a brand new pole barn on his land. The fenced area feels private and quiet, and was the perfect space for us and the dogs. James was available via text to help and answer any questions we had. Big rigs: Yes, you can fit your 45' bus or tri-axle 5th wheel in this spot. We're in a class A 43' tag axle, 44klbs. The ground gets softer/sandier the further back you go in the pole barn, so we laid down some boards/traction, and had no problems getting out or staying level. remote workers/wifi: This is quiet country land... no wifi but we ran zoom meetings via verizon and att hotspots without issue for 8 days. I recall verizon being slower, but both worked fine. We'd live/work out of this pole barn again in the future for sure. It sounds like James is building a few more of these things on nearby land; we look forward to coming back and staying either in this one or one of his new ones.
