The site exceeded our expectations.
It was peaceful, quiet, private, and our hosts were very accommodating.
We had 30 amp electric and water.
The property is gated.
Close to springs and Santa Fe River for Kayaking.

Hidden Gem was a great site. Water and Electric easily accessible. Quiet and dark at night. Felt very safe. Great location to stay for my son's baseball tournaments. Will definitely stay there again. The hosts are extremely friendly and their dog is awesome!

We stayed and Lynn and Jeff's property last weekend and it was great. Leveled and lots of space for our trailer, water hook up and electric - 30 amp - directly next to it. Very clean and peaceful and safe on gated property. Our dogs loved it and found a playmate in Payden, Lynn and Jeff's dog. It was our very first trip in our trailer and we are very happy we picked Hidden Gem. Lynn and Jeff were very helpful, responsive and accommodating. We highly recommend this place and are sure this wasn't the last time to visit Hidden Gem. Thank you Lynn & Jeff.

Everything really was perfect. Lynn and Jeff were/are very nice but at the same time not intrusive at all. They have an amazing dog named Payton and she made friends with our two dogs and us which was a complete bonus. The property is beautiful it was a great experience.

This was a stopover for us and was very nice. Went to Crystal River which was amazing swimming with the manatees. Our host was friendly and helpful. There dog Peyton was extremely friendly and exuberant, but watch your food if you plan to eat outside! Very pleasant stay..
