Site 3 - Monarch Manor Farm
Rick's land was so peaceful and lovely! He showed me the sites and they're also labeled very well. The bath house is quite nice, with a solar shower (best to use midday in the cooler months, quite warm!) And great filtered water for bathing, cleaning, and drinking. Excellent spaces with both shade and sun for solar if needed, and an incredible view of the stars and Andromeda galaxy🌌 Nice level open areas for car camping, & great conversations with Rick who is very sweet. I'll definitely be back again!

The one with the pond
Ricki was so nice and his property is so beautiful, especially with the pond. The layout was super nice! The bathhouse is such a nice addition. He also provided firewood for a nice fire which was so nice to enjoy on that cold evening. Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of earth with us :)

Amazing Experience!!!
Our family absolutely loved camping on Rick’s property. Our kids loved fishing in the stocked pond and caught few Bass. Rick was very tentative and accommodating. This was by far our favorite camping experience and really allowed us to disconnect and enjoy being outdoors and spending time as a family. We will definitely be back!

Well Appointed, Organic Farm Camp
You can tell there is thought and effort put into the camping setup here. Nice flat ground, but elevated for a nice view over the farm and pond. Nice bathouse with compost/flush toilet and hot shower. Pond is full of fish, including big tilapia that were suprisingly biting my bass baits! Managed to get some bass as well. Big property that is part working farmland and part wooded. Everything is well maintained and there is an organic approach to everything on property. Quick access off I-75 but feels very secluded. Host was very accommodating and was more than willing to answer any questions we had. We camped in Mid-September and it's Florida, but bugs weren't that bad. Definitely want to come back sometime.

Last Minute Getaway! 5*
Rating: ★★★★★ My wife, dog, and I recently embarked on a last-minute camping trip in June, and our stay at Monarch Manor Farm turned out to be an absolute blast. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Rick, the gracious host, who made us feel at home. The highlight of our stay was the freedom our dog had to roam the expansive fields surrounding the farm. It was a joy to explore the farm. The cows were incredibly docile and friendly! Rick's hospitality went above and beyond our expectations. He was always available, ensuring that our needs were met and providing us with valuable information about the local area. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the region enriched our experience, enabling us to discover hidden gems we might have otherwise overlooked. One of the highlights of our trip was gathering elderberries to make jam, and my wife has been happily immersed in the process as I write this review. The abundance of elderberry bushes on the farm made for a delightful foraging adventure, and the homemade jam promises to be a delicious reminder of our time at Monarch Manor Farm. Throughout our stay, we enjoyed fishing in the serene pond. The tranquility of the farm was truly rejuvenating, allowing us to disconnect from daily, hectic life. I highly recommend monarch manor farm for anybody looking for a getaway.
