TEMPORARILY CLOSED FOR IMPROVEMENT Park your RV or camper under the trees on the northern half of our developing 10 acre permaculture, sustainable living family farm. Dirt access road to primitive, private boondock style camping. There are no water, electric or sewer hookups, just peace and quiet. Be off the beaten path, but only minutes away from several inputs for kayaking or canoeing on the Suwannee and Sante Fe rivers. Swim in crystal clear springs, scuba dive the caves, or tube down the Ichetucknee River. Sit quietly and watch deer cross the meadow, fireflies flicker and listen to the owls hoot. Lucky campers will catch a glimpse of the resident gopher tortoise as he emerges to graze.

Sandy and Erica’s camping spots are down a long dusty road with lots of old moss strewn trees. The last 2 miles of the drive are particularly relaxing as you will see less and less cars and more and more livestock. Pulling into their gate marked with a metal blue peacock, the camping spots are to your left and right. They may put up markers for the individual campsites in the future, but for now you can look for the sandy spots cleared of grass and make yourself at home.
The property is 10 acres with the front half accessible to Hipcampers. In the back half of the property they are setting up a budding biodynamic farm with fruit trees, keystone gardens and layered above ground beds. We were given a tour of their farm and they were delightful, funny, and just a joy to be around. We also got our fill of dog love from their four dogs and one cat, that definitely thinks it’s one of the dogs.
Where we set up our van for the night was near the picnic table. The hosts were also sweet to set up a portable fire pit, a water dispenser, recycling, trash, and food compost containers. Beyond that this is boondock camping. No electricity or bathroom. Set underneath a few trees was a reading nook with a chair and table. The stars were in full bloom under a clear cold night, and the property is DARK come nightfall. It was perfect. We slept like rocks even on a colder night. This property is also right between two amazing water holes we checked out the next morning. Rum Island Springs which is free and the Blue Hole at Ichetucknee Springs in Fort White ($6 per car). AMAZING, we have never seen anything like this before. Bring your goggles, because seeing the water life while swimming around is breathtaking!
We highly recommend this spot if you are anywhere near Fort White, Florida.

Great spot. Campfire and wood provides made for a fun evening with friends. Privacy was kept in tact and it was a perfect camping trip. Definitely a good spot if you plan on going down the Ichenetucknee the next day.

The hosts were great. They met me at the gate and helped me pick out a spot. Very welcoming and then gave me lots of privacy.

I arrived after sunset, and even with the host's help it was a challenge getting my bearings in the wide open space. While there were specific sites recommended, tent campers can pretty much settle in anywhere, as the property is very flat. Once my eyes adjusted, everything was easy to find and I only needed the flashlight to avoid twisting an ankle. Weather looked good and with only one other camper present, I grabbed my bivy sack and slept in a large hammock that seemed a million miles from the nearest human.
Forgetting good advice, I'd forgotten to leash my dog for the night, and he wandered into a situation with one of the host's dogs by morning. Lucky me, it was all resolved before I woke up and no one made me feel too guilty about it. The rest of the time we were there I was invited to keep my dog off leash even though this meant the other dog had to be confined. Sandy & co were very welcoming and respectful overall, and I had a good morning, too, making breakfast in the central area (water, picnic table, large firepit).
Was surprised how few pests there were, though it may have simply been good timing (early March). No bites and no sprays used.
There seems to be much more going on for those interested but needing to make progress down the interstate I did not explore further.
Will stay again whenever I'm in the area. Best value found on Hipcamp so far.

A Dog Dug Farm is the most peacful place ever! It has the feel of private and secluded but 10 minutes away from town, springs are close by and are very beautiful. Sandy is an amazing host who meets you at the gate along with lowkey, pickle, and possibly woof the dogs behind A Dog Dug Farm. They have a community fire pit, composting toilet, and have been more than gracious every visit. This isnt my first stay and i guarantee wont be the last. Its at the top of my list so you should give it a try!!!!

Thank you so much for your positive review of our farm. We like to think of our campers as guests of our family, instead of customers. It was a pleasure meeting you and seeing you return, and we look forward to having you come back again and again!

Our gist, Sandy, was awesome, very friendly and it was easy to find, and I have no sense of direction. The site was lovely and very quiet, loved the whole vibe, we will be returning. Can’t say enough good things, it was exactly what we needed in these crazy times.

The site is tucked in far from the main roads. Very quiet. Very primitive. Sandy is a lovely hostess. She explained the layout and also that her husband works the overnight shift and not to be alarmed when he drives in. I also enjoyed meeting Mr Pickles and Loki.
