Far from the city lights, this quiet, private campsite is nestled in the forested section of our permaculture project and organic farm. You will be in the company of diverse flora and fauna, both wild and domestic. The farm is located between two large, wild lakes. Hiking, kayaking, and excellent fishing are all nearby. Easy day trips are popular to clear, fresh water springs and crystal clear rivers. Huge alligators, bald eagles, sandhill cranes and many other species inhabit the area.

Seven miles away is Micanopy, which Forbes Magazine listed as one of the 12 cutest towns in America. And Gainesville is just 20 minutes away, offering the University of Florida, museums, theater, arts, music, micro-breweries and sporting events.

    Great hidden gem, 20 min. south of Gainesville. This communal farm can be a great launching point for many Old Florida adventures. Our hosts were gracious and went out of their way to be accommodating. No dump facilities on-site but Paynes Prairie State park has dump facilities and is about ten minutes away. This was our first Hip Camp experience and we're looking forward to more!

    RV site with 30 amp electric and water, under the live oaks.Great place to relax!

    stayed here in April in a class a rv, very beautiful property with the campsite being under grandaddy oaks. Plenty of space for a pet or just to enjoy nature and quite. 30 amp electric and water included but no sewer hookups or place to dump onsite. This is an undeveloped site so no pad or gravel. this is a working farm with folks going about their chores so don't expect complete privacy, but everyone including the host was very nice and accommodating.
    Would stay here again but do be warned this site was very active for ticks and had to remove several from ourselves, so bring repellent and enjoy an off the beaten path spot to camp!
