Be Right Solutions by the river

8 sites · RVs, Tents5 acres · Ponce De Leon, FL
5 acres right off Hwy 20 adjacent to the Choctawhatchee River Boat Ramp near Ebro, Fl. The bridge muffles the sound of the traffic but not enough for light sleepers. Good views of the river. Beautiful dock for fishing. Less than 2 miles to Dollar General for most of your needs, 4 miles to Bruce, Fl. Learn more about this land: Tent camping on the Choctawhatchee River. Two public boat launches right next to the property.  The boat launch has a port-a-potty as do we. We have an outdoor shower that has instant hot water.  We can accommodate boat parking on the property. We have a dock that you can tie your boat to but the water level is often not good for getting on and off the boat.   I'm putting a road into the back so you can go in and out without to boat dock without crossing the road..  At present, you sometimes need a 4 wheel drive to get to the back of the property.   For those of you who wish to boondock with your trailer or motorhome, we can accommodate at most times.    There is a breakfast nook at the tiny house on the hill with a barbecue available.
