Pitch your tent and start fishing in the pond! Then enjoy a hot shower, cozy up by the campfire, and relax on this beautiful, 10-acre campground full of amenities to ensure you have a relaxing stay. 

About the property

Down a hidden gravel drive with wetlands on either side you will find a completely fenced in field surrounded by pine, oak, and swamp maple trees. There are two ponds located on the property both stocked with bass, bluegill, and sunfish. The front pond is home to many natural Florida wildlife and is a great location to bird watch. The property is also home to several sheep and Pency the Llama. 

Located a few miles from Brooksville and the Suncoast Parkway, this quiet and peaceful setting is just 5 minutes from the parking area and trailhead for the Suncoast Trail and 10 miles from the famous Weeki Wachee Springs, where you can spend the day at the local park or float down the river with the manatees. 

Withlacoochee State Park and other natural preserves with trail access and kayaking are only a short distance away, and Dames Cave, Homosassa Springs, and Chasawiska Springs are all within a ~20-minute drive as well. Spending a day at the beach is easy with plenty of options along the Nature Coast. We’re also less than an hour from Tampa and Clearwater and two hours from Orlando. 

A perfect weekend get-away for anyone looking to “unplug,” Smokey Acres is also a great stop for those passing through the area. We are a close distance to many racing, livestock, boating and fishing events. We have no problem accommodating whatever you’re towing!

Whether you'd like a leisurely day on the river or an adventure in the Gulf, there are plenty of boating options nearby. Be sure to make it back to the property in time to enjoy amazing sunsets that bring peace and tranquility to your experience. 

Our neighbors, JG Ranch, offers U- Pick Fruit and Vegetables or a great selection of local harvest at their roadside stand. 

This 10-acre property has been in my family for decades. My Husband and I were married under the oaks and have had our share of campfires together out there. 

I've recently moved back home with my own family and as much as we enjoy the land for ourselves we'd love to share it. Any profit from hosting campers will help us maintain our sustainable farm that we're hoping to expand onto Smokey Acres.

The tree covered sites are beautiful and the wildlife is amazing. I took photos of Turkeys, hawks, Sand Cranes and ducks. Plus I caught three bass in the pond.

Our family had such an incredible time Camping at Smokey Acres. We stayed a week, the bathroom and shower on-site made our stay very comfortable. Convenient location to lots of POI but tucked away and private too. Definitely coming back. Hillary was very helpful during our time there.
