Smith Lake Oasis w Boardwalk Dock 2
We loved James’s property. The land was fenced in, which was great for our 2 dogs. The covered barn was a nice touch. It had power, water and sewer hookups. I would stay again. It would be nice to have a little light under the barn for night time. It was a great place to stay and James answered all my texts .

Quiet Spot
James B’s land was great for a stop on our travels. A sand/gravel lot under a huge covered area with a picnic table, grill and trash can on a concrete slab. The pictures make it look like it’s waterside, but its not. The water is at the end of the road and I guess the dock belongs to a neighbor… but we did not need water access. There was another RV next to us but they were quiet. Tip… copy and paste the actual street address into your google maps, not the hip camp coordinates. It’s a manufactured house on a corner with a fort raid down the side. The gate to the backyard is on the dirt road. Check your hipcamp messages for the gate code. I’d stay again.

Good spot in a pinch
We had 6 days we needed to fill while we were exploring Florida for winter. We have a 40ft 5th wheel. This is in a large fenced in lot with plenty of room to move a large rig around. Spot was easy to find. I saw other reviews that said they drove around for an hour looking for it. I don't know what they were talking about. GPS took me almost exactly to the gate - it is down a dirt/sand road behind a mobile home. There was another 5th wheel there while we were there under the barn. I could have fit next to them with plenty of room but they looked sunk in as there is a ton of loose sand under the barn (almost like a beach). I didn't want to risk it and choose to park outside of the barn along the covered patio. Bring plenty of sewer pipe as the connection is at the far back. Water has a lot of iron in it too so if you aren't staying real long I would just fill your fresh tank and use that. Was a great spot for the 6 days we needed and our pup loved the fenced in yard (maybe a 1/2 acre). I realize the picture shows a dock on a lake. I don't know where this was or how to get to it but I also didn't ask. I do think there was a lake at the end of the street but we didn't see it. We would stay here again if we needed a place for a week or less.

Had a blast
Had a great time at this site. 2 RVs and 4 people...and frankly there was room for more if you wanted to have a larger group. Nice pole barn. Plenty of concrete under cover in case of rain. It is a short walk to dock...but beautiful country. Great fires. Suggestions: Make sure you have a couple sections of sewer pipe, hose, electric extension so you can place your RV where you want to under the barn.
