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.
