🌲  Hi! This is a budget friendly home base to explore the Ocala National Forest, and surrounding area.  🌲

If your staying a bit, let me know for a weekly or monthly discount. This is a tucked away sandy little corner of an odd rural community. Located at the back dead end corner bordering the Ocala National Forest with a short hike to the lake. You will be beside or around the home, with 1 foot in the forest. You’ll have a water hose, electric cord and Wi-Fi. 30 amp plug in to be available. For longer stays, there's a sewer cleanout if you have the thing to connect.. Make a fire, cook over wood or charcoal, and have a good time. Chairs and tables are there to move around as you like.  

This is a really quiet location with lots of butterflies, hummingbirds, red headed woodpeckers, Cardinals, not to mention all the beautiful furry forest creatures!

The way back here is narrow, so only small campers will work. Summertime, you’ll want to set up under the shade trees. It's a short hike to 🏖️ Lake Mary beaches with crystal clear water.  Bring your water toys. Jet skis, boats.. up to 50 hp, they can be put in the lake a short drive nearby. Explore and camp in the forest, or camp here. Silver Springs, Juniper Springs, is a short drive. 5 minute drive to Ducks Dam Diner near the Moss Bluff Ocklawaha River Dam with boat launch. Locals show off their Harleys and hot rods on most weekends. A biscuits and gravy kinda place!  Across the road from there is nice hiking in the Ocklawaha Prairie South Trailhead. About 1 hr from Daytona Bch. Bring your pets, especially if they’d like to go for a splash with you!

🦝Remember be Bear Aware and don't leave food out! 🐻

Kim was a fantastic host!! So friendly and provided us with a few drinks, plates and utensils. The area was so nice, and the site had some helpful amenities like a hot outdoor shower, running water and some little candles to light at night. We plan on coming back someday to explore more of Ocala national forest. Thanks again, Kim!!

Kim was awesome and her yard is sweet. The walk to the private lake is a must, great times. I have already told many travelers.

This spot exceeded our expectations. K was a great host and surprised us with a welcome basket of beverages, towels, an electric hook up, use of a grill, and A HOT OUTDOOR SHOWER. We expected only cold water so that was amazing. There was plenty of space to set up our tent, build a nice size fire, gather wood, and direct access to Ocala National Forest was only a few steps away. She was very responsive host and more than helpful.
