Our Primitive Campsite is located on 10 private acres on the beautiful Weakiva River in Rock Springs Preserve. The landscape is heavily wooded off the grid with a path to the Weakiva river as well as a natural small swimming hole that is fed by the river & a spring. The swimming hole also doubles as a small boat launch with a canal through the woods that leads to the Weakiva river. In another direction there is a Wildlife Observatory Deck/Treehouse on short path from the cabin towards the entrance of the property. Being close to Weakiva Falls and in Rocks Springs Preserve, There are miles of hiking and biking trails nearby. Further into the Preserve there is a stables where you can horseback ride through Historic Indian mounds and graveyards. You can also canoe or kayak to and from Weakiva state park and Weakiva island. This luscious isolated campground is a great place to enjoy all kinds of wildlife, fishing and is the perfect family or friends getaway that's only 30 minutes away from Orlando. This is a PRIMITIVE campsite meaning although this may look like a house there are no mattresses, electric, or running water. There are currently no pillows or blankets on site so campers need to bring their own bedding and sleeping matts. We are currently in the process of getting running water and then electricity etc. Considering the circumstances it would be extremely difficult to try to get to the cabin when the sun is down and I would not recommend it. It is deep in the woods with no lights or sense of direction, especially for people who are inexperienced in the woods and do not know where the cabin is located. There is a well located behind the cabin, a hose, and a spring that is constantly pumping up fresh water through a pipe located by the swimming hole (Outdoor shower area coming soon as well).There is a working toilet inside the cabin it just needs water to be flushed! There is a canoe on site and paddles, if you would like another canoe/kayaks message me and I can arrange for more. The cabin is not on any marked roads so there is no address, the last road you will take before entering the woods is Weakiva River Road( Past the Hammock House). Campers need to be aware of the terrain as the roads can be sandy or muddy and risk getting stuck if you go too slow or stop in a soft spot and I will be unable to help as I am a college student away at University. As far as privacy goes there is one other private property located next to ours that has a do not enter sign but as I mentioned previously the cabin is completely secluded and I have never seen or heard anything from that direction or been onto the neighboring property. If you have any special requests for me to have something set up for your arrival, for example a case of water or maybe champagne on ice and flowers; whatever it may be message me and maybe we can make something happen! 

Thank you for your Interest!!!
