Welcome to Smokey Acres! This property has been in my family for decades. My Husband and I were married under the oaks and have had our share of campfires out there. Down a hidden gravel drive with wetlands on either side you will find a completely fenced in field surrounded by pine, oak, and swamp maple trees. There are two ponds located on the property both stocked with bass, bluegill, and sunfish. The front pond is home to many natural Florida wildlife and is a great location to bird watch. Located a few miles from Brooksville and the Suncoast Parkway, this quiet and peaceful setting is just 5 minutes from the parking area and trailhead for the Suncoast Trail and 10 miles from the famous Weeki Wachee Springs, where you can spend the day at the local park or float down the river with the manatees. Withlacoochee State Park and other natural preserves with trail access and kayaking are only a short distance away, and Dames Cave, Homosassa Springs, and Chasawiska Springs are all within a ~20-minute drive as well. Spending a day at the beach is easy with plenty of options along the Nature Coast. We’re also less than an hour from Tampa and Clearwater and two hours from Orlando. A perfect weekend get-away for anyone looking to “unplug,” Smokey Acres is also a great stop for those passing through the area. We are a close distance to many racing, livestock, boating and fishing events. We have no problem accommodating whatever you’re towing! Whether you'd like a leisurely day on the river or an adventure in the Gulf, there are plenty of boating options nearby. Be sure to make it back to the property in time to enjoy amazing sunsets that bring peace and tranquility to your experience. Our neighbors, JG Ranch, offers U- Pick Fruit and Vegetables or a great selection of local harvest at their roadside stand. This 10-acre property has been in my family for decades. My Husband and I were married under the oaks and have had our share of campfires together out there. I've recently moved back home with my own family and as much as we enjoy the land for ourselves we'd love to share it. Any profit from hosting campers will help us maintain our sustainable farm that we're hoping to expand onto Smokey Acres. Just in! Our dirt road has been repaved. So no worries about a bumpy drive in!

Bass Pond RV full hookup Site 3
We booked 3 nights and left after the first night. Most of the site flooded with about 10 minutes of rain. There were major ant beds throughout the site. Everything got infested with ants.

Hidden paradise
Billy and Hilary are wonderful hosts. The campsite was recently mowed and as beautiful as before. Driveway was much better this go around. The white SA sign out front was helpful as well. Looking forward to our next time out. Thanks as always for sharing your lil piece of paradise!!

Tranquil hidden Eden
Turn off of the highway, as directed. You may feel as though you are descending into the bowels of the deep swamp it’s very self. Did we make a wrong turn? Do not allow your anxious anxiety to darken your soul. Drive on a mere minute more and lift your gaze to the left. Your eyes & spirit will lift simultaneously. Weary traveler’s worried stresses will instantaneously melt away. You have driven into awe inspiring natural beauty. Lush green vegetation & foliage majestically guarded by the time worn wisdom of old growth oak trees. Egrets, feed in the low lawn, as fish feeding disturb the glassy surface of the bass pond. The sun’s rays filter through the old man’s beard hanging from the oaks and palmetto. Various ferns, air plants and moss cling and grow along the branches and trunks of the oak. We could continue to sing the praises of this tranquil hidden little gem. We will only leave you with this. We eagerly await our next visit. Thank you, Hilary & Family for sharing your little piece of Eden w/us.

Smokey Acres primitive tent site 6
Overall we had a good experience. The host and ground manager were excellent- very attentive and responsive. The grounds manager came through and cleaned up each day. It’s definitely primitive camping. There is one toilet and shower and spigot for all the campsites. The RV spots have hookups, of course, I’m talking about the tent camping sites on the nature trail. There really wasn’t anywhere to dig a hole for toileting and the sites were too close together and small for going “#1” so you really had to use the toilet. The sites were well-maintained with good places to set up tents. Each site has tress and bushes around it to increase privacy but this also prevented breezes, and mosquitos were intense. I would stay here again in the winter with a portable potty.
