We had a wonderful time during our stay. The location was very easily reached and conveniently located off the main road. We pulled a 30 foot travel trailer and we had more than enough room to navigate to our spot. The site was very well maintained and clean. The ammenities were just as described. We absolutely loved the property. It backs up to Paynes Prarie and when (not if) we return, we will do some small exploring. Our stay was made even more pleasant when given the opportunity to meet the owners. They were were very kind, gracious and went above and beyond to accomidate any needs we may have. This spot just minutes from downtown Gainesville is an absolute gem.
