Great space to set up camp! Lots of room for trailer and lawn games. Quiet and beautiful views. The access to the river needs some attention. Steep and overgrown. Had a hard time finding the driveway from the road but if you look for the metal sign with Pink Panther on it that’s your turn! Overall a great place to getaway!

A field looking at rvs. Not a riverbank site, but a walk to a private dock? Water in the field, but not for Hip Campers? We went nearby to a super public park on the river with picnic table and water for one third the cost.

As shown in the photos, there are private parcels on both sides of our camp (with their own campers and rvs in use). Our parcel has over 100' of direct river access with 2 camp sites sharing the parcel. There is a designated common area to be shared between both sites as outlined in the photos and site maps. There is not private dock access offered with this site as that is quite a ways over on the neighbors parcel and not ours to use. The water source is also on the neighboring private parcel and we don't offer it as an amenity in our listing either. My photos and Google images clearly show this as a river access lot. We've been recreating here as a family for over 20 years. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as we do and I hope the public park setting that you chose was more to your liking and better suited to your needs than our camp.

We had a great weekend camping here on the St Joe River. Great setting in the mountains and lots if open sky to stargaze at night. I’ll definitely consider staying here again.
