Pitch your tent in our private sanctuary. Minutes from I-95, but surrounded by the Allapattah Flats Nature Preserve. Located on Martin Hwy, which was recently designated as a Florida Scenic Hwy. Fifteen minutes to Stuart and thirty minutes to West Palm Beach, a world away from the hustle and bustle.

Stay with us for a day (or a few if you care to investigate the area). Sit by the fire pit and enjoy the peaceful open sky.  Please note that because we are on a highway there is road noise and may cause some campers to not be happy as seen in reviews. We have two listings, one for tents in the Oak hammock at the back of property and one for larger vans and campers on the west side of of the pond in an open area. 

If you have dogs, you are welcome to use our personal kennels to keep them in while exploring the area. Horses are also welcome as we have stalls available.

We welcome you to join us in your journey, however long it may be. Just let us know, ahead of time, if you are arriving in an RV as we want to make sure that we are here to guide you to the appropriate camping spot.

Bring your acrylics and paintthe cabbage palmsor anything else you may find. Just ask.

We stayed for 3 nights at this wonderful camping gem! Shade trees kept our tent cool and gave us the opportunity to set up our hammock and totally relax. The property is very well maintained by Christine and her helpers....including the friendly 3 chickens which gobbled up any of our crumbs. Grocery stores and dining opportunities about 15 minutes away. We will definitely go back!!!!

Heather! Our free range chickens love our renting friends. So happy you were able to cool off under the shade!

Christine’s peoperty was beautiful but all the campsites were right on top of each other. Depending on what you are looking for this could be fine, but my friends and I were hoping for more space and solitude to enjoy the outdoors. It was nice that each site had a campfire set up and seating. We just didn’t feel very welcome and had a really weird vibe about the experience.

Hipcamper CHRISTINE
Response from CHRISTINE, the Host, on August 13th, 2021

I’m sorry Olivia. We try and dim the fact that we live on the property but I agree. Having a house near by can cause a little angst to some. Some people love it because they bring their small children amd have no experience like you. The city of Port St. Lucie has a lovely 5,000 water preserve that would be more primitive for your liking. It is called the Carlton Ranch Preserve. Or maybe the state park Johnathan Dickinson.

Calm and nice spot at a beautiful property not too far from civilization. Clean outdoor bathroom, and nice outdoor hot shower. Had a great time interacting with the mini horses and would love to come back with my little niece. Def. recommended.

GPS works on this one. Easy to find, clean, well-thought-out sites. Relaxing and beautiful. The host couple was friendly and kindly answered all my questions about the flowers and plants on the property. We were able to buy firewood on site and that was a bonus. The chickens greeted us at the beginning and end of our stay. Would definitely camp there again.

Great photos. So glad our chickens did not bother you to much. The key is to not feed them🤣

Great campsite in a beautiful spot. Christine is a wonderful host, great conversations and the land is awesome. Tent camping in a little palm tree forest with cool decorations sprinkled throughout, next to a little pond. The land has tiny horses and the chickens are super sweet and come right up to you. Nice outdoor shower as well. Would definitely stay here again and especially since it’s one of the only campgrounds that I know of in Florida.
Thank you Christine!
