Great camping
April was more than amazing for us during our camping trip. She took us on a private tour through the river, and places you wouldn’t get to see normally, the camp site was 10/10 plenty of space and privacy, we already can’t wait to come back!

Very spacious, private and perfect in every way. Camp host was very timely and helpful with any questions we had and could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely stay here again!!!

Wonderful treed space with power, water, and a tidy portopotty. Beautiful trees, lots of birds and bird songs and a cool breeze at night. Fire ring for evening campfire. Level places for the tent. Picnic table under the trees. Great place.

Beautiful Land and Great Location
Tent camping at Free to Be was great! It was easy to find, had all the essentials (water, electricity, porta-potty), tick & mosquito free, and April was very kind and helpful! Will be coming back with friends and family in the future - the space is perfect for a group of people as there is plenty of space.

Peaceful Acre
April's spot is very quiet with electric, water and a clean bathroom. It was a great place to overnite after spending the day on the Santa Fe River with April as our awesome guide. We had a wonderful paddle trip and a very peaceful sleep. Thank you April! 💕

The location is great if you want to explore the springs. No problems with the Rv hookup. My main complaint is the whole area being severely infested with ticks. I can’t exaggerate how bad they were for me and my dog. Kind of ruined my trip.
