Boondocking Site 1
A FL Folk Fest to Remember!
My friends and I were visiting for the annual Florida Folks Festival, however, to our dismay, there were no campsites available at any of the near by camping sites. Looking back I couldn't be more happy these places were booked solid! Tent camping at Sandi's was a fantastic experience!!! I will break it down into _ categories: Host, Location, Campsite Options
The Host for this site, Sandi, is not only incredibly friendly and helpful but also inspirational! She responds quickly to any questions we had and was genuinely interested in ensuring we had a wonderful time. While my friends slept in, I would talk with her and she left me eager to experience all life has to offer!
Sandi's property is a short 20 minute drive from Stephen Foster State Park, perfect for enjoying their festival. The site is located in Lake City which is a rural town, if you seek to camp in this or surrounding towns expect various farm animal sounds in the morning. To myself and my friends this did not bother us at all. This area is dark at night and the stars are magnificent!
For the campsite, Sandi has many options for whether you enjoy hammock or tent camping. I camped in the grassy field while my friends camped under the trees. If camping under the trees, bring a thicker tent footprint as there are a few thorned plants (a picnic blanket will do the trick). However, the field is wonderfully grassy! Sandi has big plans for this site and plans to constantly improve it. We cannot wait to visit again!
