When you are here you are family. Hi, I'm Danielle. My Mom, JoAnn, founded Black Horse Ranch in 2017. "You're family here" is something she said all the time to people who came to stay, and it is truly at the heart of our ranch. Black Horse is a place to enjoy nature, camping, campfires, and good company, in a place that feels like home. The property is a beautiful campground nestled into a nook of the Ocala National Forest. We are surrounded on 3 sides by forest, and you can ride or hike straight from any of the many trailheads on property! We offer 30 and 50amp sites, there is a bath house with full bathrooms and laundry, a Community Kitchen you are welcome to use, a screened in Pavilion for meals or hanging out, a POOL! (yes you read that right!) and a Clubhouse with couches, games and all! We have a few rentals (a cabin and RV) and we are working on getting more. We do have wifi on the property, and we also offer golf cart rentals. If you have horses, you'll love coming to Black Horse. We are surrounded by countless trails through the forest with the trail heads sitting right on property, two barns for horses, many outdoor stalls and paddocks, wash racks, and an extra large riding arena. There is world class fishing nearby at the St. John's River and we are right near many beautiful springs - which, if you have never spent time in a natural spring you will absolutely want to check that out! Kayaking, tubing, swimming galore in crystal clear waters. We are a 20 minute drive from the Villages which offers shopping, dining, and activities, as well as 20 minutes to historic Mount Dora which is a beautiful artsy downtown village. We are 1 hour from Daytona & New Smyrna, 1 hour from Orlando (Disney anyone?). There is plenty to do on the ranch and nearby the ranch. You will have a blast. We'll see you by the campfire!

RV Site 9 - 30amp
The best bathrooms!!! It was so refreshing to find a place with nice bathrooms! Plenty of riding trails if you have a horse. The ladies that work there was the absolute best!

Site 2 - Black Horse Ranch
Having a laundry soap dispenser in the laundry room would be very helpful. Also providing a rudimentary map of the area would make things much more easily accessible. All in all this place is nice. I would stay here again, and will tell my friends who have horses about it.

Site 2 - Black Horse Ranch
very cool experience...
We had the best time at Black Horse Ranch, and I can't really say anything bad about the experience! However, we must warn you about the SAND. We saw one review that mentioned it was very sandy, but none of the other reviews did, so we decided to take a chance. Pay attention, it is a sandy place! The HIP camp website STATED PLAINLY that 40 foot rigs would fit just fine. However, when we arrived, JoAnn was SHOCKED that our rig was so big, and I honestly thought for a minute she was going to tell us to leave. Also, when we made the reservation, we were given site 2. We took site 2 because a review said it was a good site for their "large rig". When we arrived at Black Horse, we were told site 2 was full. Again, JoAnn was very accommodating and very nice, and she drove us around the place till we found a spot we thought we could work with. We did set up camp, and we had a GREAT time there for two days! Everyone was sooooo nice!!!! Oh, we also signed up for a 50 amp spot on the HIP camp site, but when we arrived, because we couldn't get the site 2 we "thought" we were going to get, we ended up with a 30 amp site. AND, the last thing you might need to know is that there is NO WIFI. The HIP camp description says there is, but there is not. I sure hated to say anything bad about this place, because we had the best time. But these are things anyone with a large rig needs to know that may want to go there. Call ahead and check details.

Black Horse Ranch
Everything you need!
Joann’s Black Horse Ranch was amazing even if you have no horse and just want to come down for a little while. Full hook ups , space for your horse ( if you have one) trails to walk or ride, a big arena, a pool and very nice pöble around you! Joann is very friendly and takes good care of you. The bathrooms are very nice and need. We will definitely come back when we are in the area. Thank you Joann for everything! Peter & Ann
