The vibe at Old White House
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We drove out to The Old White House by way of Ocala, Florida. It was a pretty country drive with a lot of beautiful old growth trees spread out on flat to rolling pasture. I wanted to stop many times because the photos would have been gorgeous, but were were racing to get past a brooding storm that was crackling lightning and thunder. The Old White House is a 126 years old, the oldest structure in the county! It now serves as an antique shop that has monthly sales along with live music and food trucks. We pulled in behind the house to a lovely flat yard with a huge oak just perfect for us to tuck our van under.
There was a string of lights already hanging in the tree, a small fire ring, a table with four chairs, and a bathroom off the back of the house open and clean for us to use. Though the house is on a fairly busy road we felt safe and comfortable set up in the open space behind it.
Brenda and Chris welcomed as we got there and couldn’t have been nicer or more excited for our visit. We felt right at home immediately. There is enough space here for several campers at once, especially because the yard outback works like a circle. They have left an island of trees and shrubs in the center so it actually provides more privacy than if the entire yard was mowed.
If you are looking for a unique spot to set up camp, don’t hesitate to choose this one! It’s right near the Withlacoochee State Park and just 7 miles from the Homosassa Springs State Park where you can see manatees during the spring! The camp site is also very close to shops, gas stations, and grocery stores.
