Primitive camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Located in Panacea Florida along the forgotten coast with fishing both salt and fresh water nearby. Panacea, "a solution or remedy for all difficulties or diseases." has a great history and once hosted a large hotel with Mineral Springwater. This is a perfect place for fishing, hiking and eco tourism. PLEASE be sure to contact me before your visit! I have a google my maps area map that has many locations and activities surrounding the area detailed. There are many day trip things to do and fantastic restaurants nearby. Gulf Specimen Marine Lab and Aquarium is less than a mile away with touch tanks for the kiddos and there are sharks, sea turtles, octopus and most every creature you'd find in the gulf of Mexico to view as well. They have touch tanks and an experience unrivaled by any Aquarium anywhere. When I volunteer there building exhibits and working on infrastructure I camp on the site. Mineral springs seafood is on the north edge of town and they offer both fresh seafood, smoked fish, fish and crab dips that people drive hundreds of miles for. The famous Wakulla springs is 30 min. close where many films were made sporting a lodge built with art deco influences and native American cultural embellishments, plus glass bottom boat rides and swimming in crystal clear water. Alligator point is just across the Ochlocknee bay bridge. St George Island and Apalachicola are less than an hour drive. Tallahassee state capital is about 35 min. north. There is a bike/ walking trail that interconnects all these areas and they are currently finishing the phase that directly connects Panacea which passes the campsite within a block. There are a multitude of fishing piers and boat launches in the surrounding area within a mile and further out. The street is quiet with little traffic and its just off the main road enough for you to have ease of access to all Panacea has to offer. The star gazing is incredible. There are Osprey and Eagles that inhabit undeveloped ocean marsh and woods to the south. All neighboring sites East and West are undeveloped so you basically have an entire area to yourself. There is a fire pit and plenty of room for multiple tents. I ask only that you pack out what you pack in and not use glass containers as they tend to break and I love being barefoot. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I'm always open to suggestions for improvements and I want you to enjoy the place as much as I do. I'm working toward eventually having water and electricity and maybe some day a home in the air. Call! ate fife oh- free oh nan- too too oh nan, ask for Dave or leave me a message and I will get back ASAP.PLEASE READ Site is only prepared for tent camping so far. Hipcamp jumped the gun on making this site public. Please call me before you book the site. Undeveloped lot on salt marsh pond with connecting canal to the ocean via Dickerson bay. Large fire pit, supply your own firewood. Mash sands public beach is a short drive and Alligator point is 20 min. across the bay bridge. World class fishing and Rock Landing Marina about 1 mile away or fish by kayak you can put in right from the site if you brave the marsh grass. There is a place by the road that you can launch from as well. Gelf Specimen Aquarium is within 1 mile, a great Aquarium to get up close and personal with nurse sharks, octopus and most every other inhabitant of the gulf of Mexico. Wakulla springs and St Marks lighthouse within 20 to 30 min. drive. Great sunsets right from the property. Star gazing or moon watching is awesome. Panacea RV Park is across the street with full amenities if you just want to glamp and rent a private primitive camp spot for the in-laws. I acquired the property this year and have been clearing the land, so amenities will improve over time.

I am older female with van and was just afraid I might have trouble turning around. I am 21’. Otherwise it looked fine and David was kind enough to suggest camping in area.

Comfy pocket in the pines!
Perfect location, right in the middle of everything you need. The site has a great view of the marsh. David was a standout host, hooked us up with lots of local knowledge and good times. Can't recommend this place enough!

Pup Retreat!
Great spot that was nice and secluded. I came with my van, put a 10x10 pop up and had a great time bonding in solitude with my reactive rescue dog. We walked a few miles every day and generally had a relaxing time, there's plenty to explore within walking distance and the sunsets are wonderful.

Nice private little spot right off the main drag close to Alligator Point and the beach. David lined us out on good local food and things to do, would recommend :)

We enjoyed camping on David's land. It was very close to The Gulf Specimen Aquarium, where we were going, and downtown Panacea! David was a very good host, contacting us when we signed up and helping get us in contact with locals. We enjoyed the view of the marsh and set up our tent facing it, which also gave us a nice little breeze. There's a cute little footpath out into the marsh, which was neat for seeing snails.
