Super host. Quiet area. Sites are pretty undeveloped so bring leveling blocks if in a camper.

Rough road but pleasant stay.
The host was nice and meet me upon arrival, showed me my spot, then left me to it. The location was great but there were few level areas. It’s really open and is decently maintained. There is an outdoor bathroom that was nice to have (toilet and sink only). Beware of the road coming in! It’s pretty rough with a number of big holes. (If you’re set up is really low I’d be mindful.) The driveway is a one way so watch for anyone who may be already on the path. This is not somewhere I would suggest looking if you’re long or inexperienced driving off road. And if you’re going to be here during the summer know the bug noise is REAL!

A Real Horse Ranch Experience in FL
My wife and I had a great experience at Crazy 8 Horse Ranch. Keep in mind, this is first and foremost a RANCH, not a resort. So, you need to have the mindset of being on a farm. That means you may not have access to all the amenities you would have in an RV Park. So make sure you prepare for a little more rugged experience you would expect at a ranch. Marcia and her crew were fantastic - very hospitable and friendly. We felt like family from day one. Her horses are beautiful and well-kept. They are kid-friendly and ideal for first-time riders. I highly recommend taking one of the day rides.

We loved the country feel and host were awesome very friendly and accommodating. We had our dog and she enjoyed being able to get out without a leash. The site does not have a sewage hookup which was a negative, but beyond that we would highly recommend.

Wonderful place and Marcia was fantastic. I wish we could have stayed longer. Very peaceful and we loved watching the horses. The road to her driveway is pretty bad for about a mile but doable at slow speeds. We will go back if I'm the area for.

Relax on A Horse Farm
Loved this treasure. It’s a horse rescue farm. Very peaceful and the owner and staff are very friendly. I stayed here 3 nights boondocking in my Winnebago Revel. There are hookups in several convenient spots. Also a washer & dryer, and outdoor bathroom. This really made my first visit to Tallahassee special.

Camping @ the horse farm
Marcia couldn’t be nicer. Everything was perfect and as described. Great camping spots, fun with the animals, and a gracious host. Secluded and quiet yet close to the amenities of the city and nature trails. What could be better?

We had a great time. We came from hours away for a getaway and horse ride. Our kids love being able to walk up and visit and feed the horses while we were there. If you’re rv camping in the winter the outdoor shower is very rustic. Plan to manage your gray tanks and use your shower. In warmer weather it wouldn’t be an issue. The host was awesome and friendly. Excellent stay

Relaxing and laid back horse ranch
We had a wonderful stay with Marcia and Shantel! Our site was next to the horse paddocks and we set up our awning so that we could hang out and watch them. It was so nice to wake up and hear them in the morning at feeding time. We had all the amenities we needed: community bathroom with toilet and sink, hot outdoor shower, community refrigerator, community fire pit, 30 amp hookup and water hook up. Laid back and rustic atmosphere with hosts you are comfortable talking to. Trail rides are their specialty so make sure you take a ride with them through the Apalachicola National Forest. Shantel is a great trail boss and will educate and answer questions along the way. The horses were sweet and it was awesome to watch them in their environment whenever we wanted. Thank you for sharing your ranch with us. We will be back!

Good times with nice people
I really enjoyed my stay at crazy 8 ranch. The owner Marci rescues horses and offers trail rides. Everyone was very nice and it was a memorable experience being back on a horse as I hadn’t been since I was a little girl. There was little to no noise after dark and you will have an absolutely amazing view of the stars from anywhere on the ranch. I believe there are only 1 or 2 RV sites available with water and electricity hookups, neither was available so I was dry camping on the ranch right next to the horse pens and pool which I didn’t mind at all. It was a new experience for my pups too as they had never seen a horse that close up before. The road there is VERY bumpy so be careful coming in as there are lots of potholes. Only about 2 miles from the nearest gas station and about 15 mins from dining. If you have a larger rig you might want to check with her before you book to make sure there’s room. Cons were no bathrooms or showers on site so if your RV isn’t self contained like mine you may have an issue. There’s also horse poo everywhere but that’s expected on a horse ranch.

Surrounded by Horses
We enjoyed our stay at Crazy 8. There was water and electric available by our camping spot. We enjoyed all the animals and were allowed to feed them. We also did a bonfire one evening and it was very enjoyable. We were offered the opportunity to ride the horses, but we're not pressured. Kids would love this.

We had a great time staying at Crazy 8. Some rain foiled our plans for a trail ride but my kids loved feeding the horses carrots, taking a swim, and enjoying the other animals.

Close to town but fast enough away
It was a great place to stay, especially because it was my first camping trip in years. I was hoping for something a little more remote, but due to the weather the outlying sites were too damp and with Sally and all the rain & change in the weather it was too cool to swim. I was right up by the horses and pool and it turned out to be quiet and peaceful even with them doing trail rides. It was a great place to spend a low key couple of days. Just what I needed.
