Learn more about this land: This site is under the oak trees between two horse pastures. It's a tent site, not suitable for any vehicles.  There are some chairs by the fire ring, and there is always wood to find on the property for fires for free, or I'll gather it for a small fee. You can listen to the owls at night and hear our resident eagles. You’ll be near the barn to see and hear our horses. It's a very quiet and peaceful setting.  Our friendly boxer, Myah, will greet you with barking, she is a great watch dog. She quickly makes friends, but if you don't like dogs, this is not the place for you. She's not reliable around other dogs, so sorry... no pets. You will have a full bathroom which is located in the barn, steps away from the campsite. I'm usually in the house or barn for any questions or needs, please ask!

Our tent site was exactly as listing described. Bathroom was clean, and shower was hot with great water pressure! Was cool being next to those sweet horses too.

The ground was soft! I am 63 years old and I slept like a baby on merely a foam pad. (okay, two foam pads.) The hosts are lovely. Izzy, the horse, delightful. We stayed there so my daughter and I could tour a couple colleges. We came in late and set up camp late and the owner was very helpful. Very pretty and private spot.

Awesome spot for tent camping, large open area under the trees with a fire pit. You’re between two open areas that the horses may graze in, and adjacent to the barn which had a full bath (very nice plus when tent camping!). The horses were so sweet and fun to watch, we will definitely return and highly recommend this spot. Conveniently located to many nearby springs and the Sanford area which has a great downtown.

We had a wonderful time tent camping at Laura’s site. The site was comfortable with access to a really nice bathroom, and the ability to be around horses. Laura was very patient and accommodating with our late check in and even offered us some marshmallows! We had such a nice time, Laura was a great host, and I would recommend her site to anyone.

We had a great time tent camping at Laura’s. We had the space to ourselves and was nice to have the bathroom barn available to use. Plenty of campfire wood around the area to use for a fire.

Horses in the adjoining paddock were a peaceful, calming presence. The dog has nice manners, not pesky or aggressive. I saw a bald eagle! And, it is only a few miles south of Sanford's entertainment district. Clue: check for nearby restaurants, TaksimTurkish Grill and PARVA Colombian Bakery are excellent! And Walmart is right there.

Our host was wonderful, very accommodating. Enjoyed sitting under the oaks and seeing eagles and squirrels. In the night owls hooted. Having a nice bathroom was the best.

Authentic Horse Farm plus Plumbing
Laura’s created an experience that’s the perfect blend of authentic horse farm and comfortable relaxation. We arrived and followed her clear directions on where to set up camp, saying hello to the horses in the barn as we passed through. The ground was level and smooth - no rocks had to to be moved to set up our 6 person tent. Though we weren’t far from the parking area or barn, the large oaks and pastures gave a sense of seclusion. The barn bathroom was a pleasant surprise with residential grade fixtures, plumbing, flooring and door. We had plenty of hot water and great water pressure and even charged our phones for a bit. Though there were other people staying in the barn who were sharing the bathroom, we never saw them. We enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again. If you are looking for a unique camping experience with the comforts of your home bathroom, stay Under the Oaks.

Beautiful setting and fantastic experience! Laura was a wonderful host. The bathroom was clean and inviting. Relaxing by our evening campfires and waking up to see the horses in the pasture were some of our favorite moments. Thank you Laura for sharing with us!

First HipCamp Experience
My first HipCamp stay and it was amazing! Wanted to get away for the day and this was the perfect spot. Laura and her dog Myah are the sweetest, a hidden oasis in Central Florida!

Get away and relax!
Easy to get to. Right off the highway but you would not know it. The Equestrian neighborhood is beautiful. The property is in great condition, the land is quant and cozy. Really nice to have a full bathroom, the horses are sweet and we were lucky to meet the momma horse and her new baby.

Very kind host and beautiful place!
Laura was a super amazing host and the campsite on her property was gorgeous. Her horses were beautiful and friendly. One of the best things about this place is that this property is situated just the right distance from so many cool outdoor areas and the heart of Orlando as well so there are endless activities you can participate in.

Close to town, but still in nature
We appreciated that there was some furniture set up around the fire pit for us! The ground was level and well kept so finding a spot to pitch our tent was not hard at all. The bathroom in the barn was nicer than mine at home! Keep in mind that you may be sharing it with another hip camper though. I loved seeing the horses!
