The Freckled Frog started out as a plant nursery. It got its name because my grandfather always called me frog and my friends called me freckles. It just seemed like the right name. We no longer have the nursery but we host music events once a month (in season) as well as other events. We just thought it would be nice to add camping to the mix. Our property is located in Pine Level Florida. Pine Level was established in 1866 as the new county seat of old Manatee County Florida ( formed in 1855). Apparently Pine Level, Florida was quite the western saloon town in its heyday complete with vigilante gang and street side shooting duels. Today, the only things left are the church, cemetery, the “hanging tree” where justice was served, cattle ranches and orange groves. You can bring your bike or hike the old back roads of Pine Level. You will see beautiful pasture land and cattle . There is still a wooden bridge that crosses Horse Creek on the way to the historical Pine Level United Methodist Church. Come step back in time with us and enjoy the country. Learn more about this land: The Freckled Frog is located just west of the city of Arcadia Fl. It is a private farm with cattle on 35ac. It's possible to see deer and turkey early in the mornings or in the evenings. We are surrounded by a large cattle ranch's and citrus groves. If you enjoy birdwatching, wildlife viewing, hiking or bike riding this will be a perfect place for you.  We charge per spot for a camper/ RV or 2 small tents.

Quiet and lovely
We absolutely loved our weekend here. We arrived at night and had no issue finding a campsite - easily marked by cones. The property was very large with lots of privacy but restroom was central and easy to find. There are lots of cool things to get into near by. Over-all, a really beautiful place!

Shaded pasture setting
Beautiful pasture setting with large oak trees for shade. Several stone fire rings. Has water but on sulfur well. Friendly owners with great communication. Convenient to Arcadia. Brought several friends with us, fun times had by all!

Deborah was very nice. I stayed 1 night and it was very peaceful. I had to cut my stay short for personal reasons, but I would return for some quiet time in the future.

Peaceful and shaded!
So peaceful and exactly the relaxation we needed. The big trees provided plenty of shade to keep us cool. We loved hearing all the animals!

Tranquility after RV parks.
We came to this location with our 38’ Montana 5th wheel and camped under the trees with plenty of shade on a unusually hot and humid February. We ran our generator following campground guidelines and did just fine. If you seek country a setting and needed quiet give the Freckled Frog 🐸 a visit. Joy and David Staber

Overall it was an ok place to stay. It was a little awkward we thought that the host didn't greet us when we came in or at all... I guess she thought she was giving privacy, but its really uncomfortable staying on someones property without saying hello. The description states hiking available and we were looking fwd to that but without meeting the host, and only text msg descriptions of where to hike, we did not know where to go and felt like we were trespassing so we didnt get a chance to hike the land. Hopefully this wont happen to future guests and you will greet them and make them feel welcome instead of trespassers to your neighbors land.

A Country Paradise!
We loved everything about this quite, secluded area! We arrived around 8pm so it was dark. We easily found our way to an open site and pitched our tent. The next morning we knew we hit the jackpot! There was a lot of space between the sites; more than 2- 18 wheelers in length from where we were to the next camper. Everyone was super nice! Massive and beautiful trees; open space and shade, a bathroom with a toilet and sink. There are other really cool things about this spot, but surprises are worth there weight in gold, too. We are 1 hour away and plan to stay frequently.

Nice for a getaway
My husband and I stayed here with our dog last night and had a great time. The property is very clean and cute. We felt very safe here and I liked being in a fenced pasture. The bathroom was very nice too.

Quiet and peaceful!
We had a great one night stay here. We got in a bit late, but Deborah came out to greet us and made sure we got settled. We had the place to ourselves so it was quiet, peaceful and private. There was lots of firewood nearby which was a nice bonus.

It’s a nice little spot out in the country for a campfire. Good stargazing too. I would recommend.

Pasture setting. Camping under oaks listening to owls at night. Several sites have rock campfire rings. Close to downtown Arcadia for antiquing & restaurants. Great rural location for stargazing. Event venue on premises for music, weddings, parties etc. We would definitely recommend to friends & family.

We stayed for New Years Eve. They had a great party with a Live Band. It was wonderful. But without the entertainment there is nothing to do. If you are looking for peace and quiet then its a great place to get that.

Rural Florida at its Best!
This is a lovely, rural Florida location just outside Arcadia. There are a number of sites under old oak trees, swinging with Spanish Moss. This is part of a cattle farm so you do need to watch where you step but it isn't a problem. They have live music shows that would be fun to attend, though that wasn't our experience this time and there is a restroom with indoor plumbing that is accessible, as are numerous tables and chairs on a patio.
