This area was inhabited by indians many years ago and the remnants of their civilization are scattered about in the rivers and land. The Ichetucknee River was named by a tribe of Creek Indians who came down from north Georgia and Alabama, and means "place of the beavers". This area is rich in history and beautiful nature. With over 1/3 acre of dedicated riverfront property on the Santa Fe River, you’ll have all the peace and quiet you can handle in this single spot campsite. The campsite was purpose-built for friends and family who come to visit this slice of paradise we call home. Ideally located in the heart of spring country in North Central Florida, we have over 18 major springs within a 50-mile radius of this location, which allows for all the outdoor exploration and watersports you desire. With tubing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming, boating, and fishing available within feet of the campsite, you can stay nearby or venture out to some of the best springs in the world. Boaters – Private boat ramp is 200 yards up the road on the Santa Fe, public boat ramps within 10 miles on the Santa Fe and Suwannee rivers. Tubers – Tube the private section of the crystal-clear Ichetucknee river accessible only by the homeowners via our 3 waterfront parks. Both get-out parks are within walking distance to the campsite for your convenience. Paddlers – Paddle the Santa Fe or Ichetucknee rivers from within the neighborhood, or if the time of year is right, venture up to the Ichetucknee State Park to paddle the head waters and north entrance. This is limited in season and numbers to keep the impact on the river to a minimum. Swimmers – Swim the Santa Fe or Ichetucknee rivers from within the neighborhood via our 9 waterfront parks (6 Santa Fe, 3 Ichetucknee) or venture to either entrance of the Ichetucknee River State Park just a few miles away. Nature lovers – Explore the unspoiled conservation areas within the neighborhood that can be hiked and explored. Setup a hammock and sit by the river and watch all your worries wash away, you may get to see the occasional manatee. Whatever your passion, this campsite accommodates it with electric (50/30/15), water, picnic table, concrete firepit, clothesline and plenty of room to spread out. The neighborhood is golf-cart and UTV friendly and has lots of dirt roads to explore.  The deer can be found quite easily every morning and evening while riding around and rarely run away from the vehicles. Area Springs and Recreation attractions include the following springs and state parks. Google search Florida Springs for more information on each.

Unreal experience
Unreal experience. I can’t stop talking about it to friends. No words to express the time we had here. The entrance to the Ichetucknee river/springs is so convenient. We can’t wait to go back! The weather was phenomenal, the stars at night were mind blowing, and the pups had so much fun!!

Great stay!
Always a wonderful stay here, so relaxing on the water and the site is on a very private spot. This was our forth visit over the past years and we’ll be back!

Amazing location! Walking distance to Ichetucknee River for tubing. Host communication was great and they were very accommodating. It would nice to have sewer hook ups but as the host says, there are state parks a few miles away. We will camp here again!

Yearly Family vacation
OMG...my family had the best time ever..our campsite is just four minutes to the Ichetucknee River. We enter at Hodar Park and 2.5 hours later get out at the exit only a minute from our camp. Plenty of room for everyone and with the trees, we always had shade we could move around and have.. Michael, our host was just a text away if we had any questions or needed anything..he always responded promptly, but we didn't need him for much.. Cannot say enough good things about this camping spot.....

I loved camping here. We were right on the river. We were able to swim off the river dock. We paddle boarded to the Ichetucknee River and saw manatees. For $6 we went inside the Ichetucknee State Park and paddle board floated all the way back to the campsite. But you need two cars.
