Super host. Quiet area.
Sites are pretty undeveloped so bring leveling blocks if in a camper.

My wife and I had a great experience at Crazy 8 Horse Ranch. Keep in mind, this is first and foremost a RANCH, not a resort. So, you need to have the mindset of being on a farm. That means you may not have access to all the amenities you would have in an RV Park. So make sure you prepare for a little more rugged experience you would expect at a ranch.

Marcia and her crew were fantastic - very hospitable and friendly. We felt like family from day one. Her horses are beautiful and well-kept. They are kid-friendly and ideal for first-time riders. I highly recommend taking one of the day rides.

We loved the country feel and host were awesome very friendly and accommodating. We had our dog and she enjoyed being able to get out without a leash. The site does not have a sewage hookup which was a negative, but beyond that we would highly recommend.

Wonderful place and Marcia was fantastic. I wish we could have stayed longer. Very peaceful and we loved watching the horses. The road to her driveway is pretty bad for about a mile but doable at slow speeds. We will go back if I'm the area for.

Loved this treasure. It’s a horse rescue farm. Very peaceful and the owner and staff are very friendly. I stayed here 3 nights boondocking in my Winnebago Revel. There are hookups in several convenient spots. Also a washer & dryer, and outdoor bathroom. This really made my first visit to Tallahassee special.

Marcia couldn’t be nicer. Everything was perfect and as described. Great camping spots, fun with the animals, and a gracious host. Secluded and quiet yet close to the amenities of the city and nature trails. What could be better?

We had a great time. We came from hours away for a getaway and horse ride. Our kids love being able to walk up and visit and feed the horses while we were there.

If you’re rv camping in the winter the outdoor shower is very rustic. Plan to manage your gray tanks and use your shower. In warmer weather it wouldn’t be an issue.

The host was awesome and friendly. Excellent stay

We had a wonderful stay with Marcia and Shantel! Our site was next to the horse paddocks and we set up our awning so that we could hang out and watch them. It was so nice to wake up and hear them in the morning at feeding time. We had all the amenities we needed: community bathroom with toilet and sink, hot outdoor shower, community refrigerator, community fire pit, 30 amp hookup and water hook up. Laid back and rustic atmosphere with hosts you are comfortable talking to. Trail rides are their specialty so make sure you take a ride with them through the Apalachicola National Forest. Shantel is a great trail boss and will educate and answer questions along the way. The horses were sweet and it was awesome to watch them in their environment whenever we wanted. Thank you for sharing your ranch with us. We will be back!
