Pitch your tent or small camper in our private sanctuary. Minutes from I-95, but surrounded by the Allapattah Flats Nature Preserve. Located on Martin Hwy, which was recently designated as a Florida Scenic Hwy. Fifteen minutes to Stuart and thirty minutes to West Palm Beach, a world away from the hustle and bustle.

Stay with us for a day (or a few if you care to investigate the area). Sit by the fire pit and enjoy the peaceful open sky.  Two camping areas are available to pick from, one by the natural pond that you can fish in, and another in the Oak hammock at the front of the property.

If you have dogs, you are welcome to use our personal kennels to keep them in while exploring the area. Horses are also welcome as we have stalls available.

We welcome you to join us in your journey, however long it may be.

Taste of Old Florida is an oasis! Only 30 minutes west of the beach and a mile and a half west of I95 is this beautiful property. The hosts live on the property along with their two dogs, two miniature horses, and two hens (with a flock of baby chicks). All of the four legged animals are happy for you to pet them and all of them give kisses!
This property is 10 acres of beautifully maintained old growth oaks and palm trees. There is a large pond behind the hosts house that is home to two alligators and some snapping turtles, as well. At the barn, where the horses sleep is also an outdoor shower with hot water, some electrical outlets, and a table with chairs for relaxing or getting work done. There was also a clean porta john to use. While we were there (though we didn’t actually see them) is a momma owl with her babies living in a nook in the barn!
Back behind and to the side of the house is a well shaded area dense with palm trees that we were able to drive our small van into to camp for the night. There is also another table with chairs here for you to enjoy. We didn’t make a fire while we were there, but were offered wood by the guests. We had absolute privacy in this spot and the night was quiet and dark. We felt very safe and very welcome here. The hosts are super friendly and work very hard to create and maintain such a stunning property.
We can’t recommend this place enough! This is camping in luxury!

A perfect campsite beneath the palms!

Had a really great time at this spot. The host Christine was just awesome, and she couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. Her property is gorgeous, and the camp site is really ideal. Miniature horses on site, water, outdoor shower, and a great fire pit.

Her cute dog Bristol even kept watch over us all nights. Highly recommended!

Bristol!

We had a great time camping on Christine's property. Before arriving, she was very communicative, and was even nice enough to let us overstay the checkout time a little bit since we had gotten in late the night before.

The property is beautiful, and there is plenty of space to set up camp and trees to use for hammocks and supports. Christine even had some firewood available for us to use alongside the wood that we had brought (which I would also recommend doing).

There was another individual also camping on the property, and while we were fairly close to each other distance-wise, it was still far enough that we didn't have to interact if we did not want to. Christine is surrounded by a nature preserve that you are free to explore, and right up the road is a natural spring that you can hike to. She was very amicable and hospitable, and I would absolutely stay here again.

One warning- she does have two dogs that are generally outside the house and free to roam. We also brought a dog, and they were all friendly with one another. However, Christine's beagle has a nose for food! Make sure you don't leave any out, and put your trash bags on top of your car or hang them on a high branch, because (as we found out) the beagle will tear into those bags for whatever food it can smell. There is also a pond on the property that generally has gators. Christine will warn you about this, but if your dog likes to swim, keep a close eye on them.

Otherwise, we had a great time! Thanks Christine!

Not too far off the beaten track but far enough to see some stars :)
Christine was super friendly and the boys loved the space and of course all the animals! Little buggy and watch out for fire ants but its S.Fl so definitely typical. On our short list for places to stay again.

Looking for the miniature horses :)New best friend.Campsite
