Our home is on 8 acres of land in The Ocala National Forest that we call Grateful Hammock. Grateful Hammock is a progressive, ever changing, intentional community of like minded people. **** In light if the recent CO-VID 19 epidemic The Grateful Hammock is currently closed. This is a serious matter and should not be taken lightly. Thank you for your cooperation in advance. We look forward to meeting you in the future. Live music from our fireside stage fills the air on some days and evenings. (So be sure to bring your instruments!!!) Primitive tent and RV / trailer camping is available. Grateful Hammock is just two miles (we are the closest Hipcamp site!) from the Silver River, one of the most beautiful rivers in the country, and there are wild monkeys (along with alligators turtles and all kinds of birds!) on it! Even closer is the Ocklawaha River, which is also beautiful and available for fishing. When you visit Grateful Hammock, you will leave as a part of our tribe! GHT!*****Ask us about our musicians special!!***** (Discount camping in exchange for live music!). Other Nearby adventures; The Canyons zip line. The tallest zipline course in Florida, plus horseback riding, just 16 miles west. Also, at Captain Jacks you can ride a horse on The Florida Trail, across the I-75 land bridge! Our goal is sustainability, so leave the disposable camping supplies like paper plates and plastic dinnerware on the grocery store shelves. Our outdoor kitchen has everything you need for eating and cooking, including plates and real silverware, coffee mugs and glasses, and most things found in a standard kitchen. . We also have a full size stove and a mini fridge for your conveniences. Watch our guided tour to get an idea of what it's like here at the Grateful Hammock. 10 minutes. https://youtu.be/7PHxPpfDPeU

What an awesome place! We were welcomed by Donna who showed us to our site. After we setup she gave us a tour of the place and we were introduced to Daniel. They have thought of everything (outdoor kitchen with anything you could possibly need, shower, bathrooms, mini fridge, music stage, etc). Everyone we met on property was beyond nice and extremely welcoming. The property is setup so that you have plenty of opportunities to engage with your neighbors while also having plenty of privacy. We met some awesome people and thoroughly enjoyed relaxing outdoors. Loved the relaxed vibe and was super bummed to have to cut our trip short (because of the corona virus scare). We will definitely return as soon as we get a chance.

It’s like coming home to family with each visit. Dan and Donna are amazing and have built an equally amazing space in nature to celebrate life and create a better tomorrow.

We are so grateful that we found this amazing camp and loving people. We arrived as strangers and left as family of the GHT. The harmony, peace and love we experienced is beyond words, truly heaven on earth for us. May the forest be with you always my friends, sisters and brothers of the GHT! Carry on the vibe and tribe!

The Grateful Hammock, Donna & Dan and all the guests were welcoming, friendly and easy going. The pictures don’t do the Grateful Hammock justice because it’s definitely a place that needs to be experienced in person and taken in for all that it is. Thank you Donna & Dan for creating the Hammock and sharing it with so many!

The Grateful Hammock was a wonderful place to bring our kids for their first camping trip with a glamping twist. The play area and tree swings were a hit. We all enjoyed the friendly community feel. They’ve really created a special place where you can feel the heart and soul that has been put into this creation. It was a fun experience all around. Donna even helped the kids get our fire stated on our campsite. Thank you!

Loved this place! So much more than a campground. Community kitchen area, community fire pit gathering, and live music. If you need to just unload and relive your hippy days this place is a gem! My friends and I will be back for sure!
