🌲 Hi! This is a budget friendly home base in the Ocala National Forest, hundreds of acres on one side, civilization on the other! 🌲 Fresh EGGS! Let me know in advance! At a tucked away sandy little corner of an odd rural community, (Google shows the road continuing, but it doesn't.) the way back here and the property is narrow, so only small campers/trailers will work at this little space bordering the Ocala National Forest. You will be beside the home, with 1 foot in the forest. 12% discount for your weekly visit. Ask me about a discount, don't think Hipcamp offers it on it's own. You’ll have a warm water shower, water hose, electric cord and Wi-Fi. Small microwave, hot pot for tea to noodles and a charcoal grill in the tent. If you'd like the Visa 248 toilet, there's a $50. cleaning deposit. You'll get it sanitized, treated ready to use. You get to clean it before leaving! I'll follow up with sanitizing~ Settle in and do your thing. The tunnel tent is water resistant, not water proof. Lots of butterflies, Humming birds, cardinals, woodpeckers and Owls are here in force! If you need me, just msg me. It's a short hike to 🏖️ Lake Mary beaches with crystal clear water for you and your pets. Dogs can go with you to other places allowed, or they can just hang here. Water toys up to 50 hp can be put in the lake a short drive nearby. Camp in the forest, or camp here. Silver Springs, Juniper Springs, and others are a short drive. Carney Island / Ma Barkers place, Fishing and swimming 5 minute drive to Ducks Dam Diner near the Moss Bluff Ocklawaha River Dam and boat launch. Locals show off their Harleys and hot rods on most weekends. A biscuits and gravy kinda place! Across the road from there is nice hiking in the Ocklawaha Prairie South Trail head. We're About an hr. West of Daytona Bch. 🦝Remember be Bear Aware and don't leave food out! 🐻 Squirrels will probably get it first though!

Be prepared for things not too look like the pictures. Also ticks are a huge problem. I sprayed my belongings and my skin and still pulled approximately 15 ticks off of my body and at least 20 off my dog. There is no real trail to the “beach.” I probably could have done it as a solo trip but I had two others with me and they were extremely uncomfortable.

My girlfriend and I love staying here. This was our second stay and her birthday so I let K know about it. When we arrived she had the area all decorated with balloons and even had a bottle champaign and orange juice waiting. The campsite is amazing, it's short hike to the lake and the outdoor shower is really convenient. Can't wait to return!!!

I really enjoyed my time at K's camp. She is such a nice person and host. The tent area was such a comfortable setup I didn't want to leave! I hope to be back.

Safe, quiet place, great spot to bounce around to multiple lakes or springs, kind host, fire pit, outdoor shower, covered barrel tent area in case it rains, power cord to charge your phone etc, tables/ chairs, rustic woodsy trail to the lake, or drive up the road 5mins to a State maintained dirt road to a free large swimming area. 4wheel drive recommended for driveway entering camp property. I'll mention, the very kind host, again. 🙂

Forest,lake,privacy & AMAZING host
Had a fantastic time with Kim on her property. She is amazing with hosting and has all your needs taken care of, minus toilet but that’s minuscule. She worked on my trailer hitch, 🫣 jumped my car AND tow my trailer out of a ditch. Such an amazing kind, unassuming human being. If you have some time to spend in solitude with good vibes and nature, this is your place. 😉😉

Quite camp site, warm shower
Kim was a fantastic host!! So friendly and provided us with a few drinks, plates and utensils. The area was so nice, and the site had some helpful amenities like a hot outdoor shower, running water and some little candles to light at night. We plan on coming back someday to explore more of Ocala national forest. Thanks again, Kim!!

Kim was awesome and her yard is sweet. The walk to the private lake is a must, great times. I have already told many travelers.

Nice spot for tent camping
This spot exceeded our expectations. K was a great host and surprised us with a welcome basket of beverages, towels, an electric hook up, use of a grill, and A HOT OUTDOOR SHOWER. We expected only cold water so that was amazing. There was plenty of space to set up our tent, build a nice size fire, gather wood, and direct access to Ocala National Forest was only a few steps away. She was very responsive host and more than helpful.
