Description

The grounds where they serve free sangria all day long!! Not quite... (that would be a heck of an attraction though!) This 24-site pull-thru equestrian campground is actually named after a mystical valley of mountainside paradise from the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by a famous Brit, James Hilton. Part of the Cross Florida Greenway, these sites do their best to live up to their mythical name and come with a large pavillion, a bathhouse/restroom, horse wash racks and a dump station. Otherwise this sites are pretty primitive and don’t have electricity or water, so you’ll want to bring plenty of your own!

We camped here for one night and it was beautiful. What made it so great were all of the horses that were on the campsite. We didn't know much about the area prior to camping, so we would do some things differently next time. You drive through a suburban area to get to the grounds and our space felt like it was literally in someones back yard. When we woke in the morning the household started playing loud music and it definitely took away from being out in nature. My advice would be to pick a spot on the other end, though its further from the restrooms. It is primitive camping so there is no electricity or or water besides the gathering areas. This town is great for horseback riding and tubing down the river on a hot summer day!

These were taken at swampy's, which is a nearby restaurant. This would be a great activity to do during the day!Large shady camping spot. Great if you have horses, but very close to suburbia. Houses were 50 yards away.
