Farmer Bob was great. We didn't see him until our last day but he invited us to take a tour of his farm and we picked starfruit, longin fruit and passion fruit right off the trees. They were delicious! 3 very friendly and well behaved dogs were around to keep us company.

Two of us camped on Robert’s beautiful farmland on a whim one night. It was easy to locate and get set up when we arrived. Perfect location for the Everglades and Biscayne! We loved hanging out with his sweet dogs that roam the land. Thank you, Robert!

A very good stop on the way to the Keys. We really enjoyed the tour Bob gave us in the morning. We would definitely stay there again

We enjoyed our quick overnight stay at Fresh Gardens. We had the place to ourselves and took great advantage of the available electric to recharge all our batteries. All the dogs were friendly and kept vigilant watch on the grounds giving us a great night's sleep. Thanks, Bob!

For those of you who are national park lovers, Everglades NP main entrance and Biscayne NP are close by. Bob the Farmer is a gracious kind host who gave us a shady place to park our van nestled amongst star fruit trees. He supplied us with a fresh water hose and a 20 amp hook up (he is wired for larger RV's). Our first night, I received an emergency call asking me to fill in for another yoga teacher online. He helped me to find a spot in the yard where I could teach remotely with a large bougainvillea bush in the background.
Our first morning he gave my son and I an hour tour of his 5 acre farm. We looked at all the interesting fruits he grows and learned about the fascinating agricultural history of south florida farming. Wonderful if you have kids! Since he has a special needs family member, he sometimes has to travel so call ahead to see if he is available.
There seems to be a state "bird" in south Florida, wandering chickens and roosters that we saw everywhere including in the area around Bob's Farm. Bob does raise chickens and other birds. He also has 4 dogs that we enjoyed. So there can be noise at random times. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs and you will be fine.
Please follow his directions as google is incorrect. Bob works very hard at maintaining a 5 acre farm and is very responsive if you let him know your needs. "Robert is here" fruit stand is close by and we enjoyed getting smoothies there too.

This was a unique experience in an area of Miami we never even knew existed!!! Bob gave us the grand tour, which the kids (and us) found super interesting!!! He was kind, accommodating, and gave us our privacy.

Fresh gardens is close to the Everglades and 1 hour to Key Largo. Sites are close together and in the owners front yard. We were the third hip camper and the 50 amp and 30 amp were taken. We only had a regular 15 amp. Plug. Which means no air in South Florida. Ugh. Thankfully our neighbors were great and the 2nd night used their generator so we could have air. The dogs were sweet. Not exactly as advertised but good for an overnight stay

This is a great place to say if you are visiting the national parks or Homestead for any reason. I stayed for 10 days in my 17ft travel trailer and had access to electricity and water. The location is secluded and private but still within 10-15 minutes of restaurants, shops and grocery stores. If you take exit 2 you will not have to deal with the bumpy road. I would definitely stay here again!
