Come get back to nature with camping at your comfort level and YES, we have A/C AND MINI HEATERS and a mini-fridge in all of our cabins. PLEASE note that there IS A PET FEE and AND WOOD FEE and it must be added when you complete booking (as Extras). Kayaks available for rent too! Whether you'd like a tent site (tents available) or a rustic cabin with lofts, we have what you're looking for. Get out of the city and get into nature. Just over an hour drive from Tampa or Orlando and you'll be laying in a hammock or making s'mores by the campfire. BUT REMEMBER, you are IN THE WOODS.. Bugs live in the woods and eliminating them all is never possible. Bring spray :) We spray weekly but there are all kinds of bugs around because you're camping! We even have Kayaks available for rent to head to Crystal River or Lake Henderson!

The Barn (Big Red)
Great place, horrible hosts
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Barn (Big Red). It was nice to get out into the fresh air and enjoy nature, and this was the perfect spot to do so. With my 15yo son tragically lost his mother recently, this was a perfect place for him to relax and breathe. Although our stay was beautiful, after we had checked out, the hosts Amy and Dan had accused us of breaking a frame of a window, that we clearly didn't do or would have done. They were quite rude on the way of even asking about the window, in actuality, they didn't ask just accused us and said" what the heck did you do to our window" . And once explaining that we had nothing to do with what was being accused, they threatened to call the police. Love they place, but will never stay ever again, because I nor my family will NEVER be accused and threatened by anyone. So if you are gonna stay at Amy and Dan's place, I would recommend a LOT of pictures before layout head down.

The Barn (Big Red)
Big Red and the space around it were awesome! Rustic experience (which is what we were going for), with outdoor shower/toilet and private setting a bit off the road. Big Red was so cozy! Bed was comfy with lots of pillows and extra blankets provided and the A.C. unit worked great! Amy was very responsive and even had firewood waiting for us upon our arrival! Would definitely stay again and recommend Big Red! :)

The Beach House
We had a great time . Fire pit area was perfect . The outdoor shower was AMAZING after a long day paddling on river.

Basic needs met
The campsite for tents was rough terrain and quite messy due to a trailer being torn down recently. There was broken glass along our trail and would not recommend walking without shoes on. Secluded location but highway traffic noise is prominent throughout the evening and early morning. Toilet and showering was provided but very rustic (water was not super clean and shower was basic outdoor without much coverage). No trash cans are provided and you are expected to throw your biohazard waste at a local gas station, which we did not do. Overall the basics are met, but the upgrades will make for a better stay in the future.
