As we are an exclusive, private 1 reservation site, we are open during the corona virus outbreak with a maximum of 8 campers.    Camping during the winter and spring is fabulous in North Florida.  Sunny and warm during the day, cool at night, it is perfect for being outdoors, sleeping and roasting marshmallows over an open campfire.   Exclusivity and privacy awaits you at this beautiful 6-acre  river retreat adjacent  to thousands  of acres of  Conservation Easement  on the banks of the Suwannee River, one of the few wild rivers in North America, a designated Pristine Scenic Waterway..

This one acre private campsite consists of a screened platform room with a ceiling fan,  table and seating for four, and a place to hang your hammock, air mattress or sleeping bag.  The outdoor facility has a flush toilet, sink and hot water shower, a picnic table and a fire pit with log seating. Tiki Torches are provided, but you must bring your own oil.  A covered veranda for inclement weather has a table and chairs, a fireplace, cold water sink, small refrigerator, 2 burner cooktop, microwave and toaster oven.  A three-minute walk down a broad, shaded, gently sloping path takes you to the banks of the Suwannee River, with clearly marked orange blazes outlining the Florida National Scenic Trail and a 1/2 mile Scenic Loop to one of the few waterfalls in Florida. There is direct river access all year long for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, bird watching and fishing on site, with horseback riding available at Skunkie Acres, live music at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, folk festivals at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center and Big Shoals Class III whitewater rapids  all within a 15-minute drive. Go on eco-adventures, dine al fresco at the riverside gazebo or just spend the day lazing on the zen deck reading a good book watching the river float by. Privacy is guaranteed by the deeply wooded grounds and exclusivity is ensured as there is a one group per weekend policy. 

Families with young children, people over 40, RV's, travel trailers, golf carts, 2 dog maximin and cats are welcome.  No ATV or dirt bikes

Where to start, where to start... Oh! On arrival!

Janet (host) greeted us at the entrance of her property and gave us a tour. She's surrounded by national and state forests, and the locally famous Suwanee River. For Florida this is as private as you can get. We were shown the sleeping options, which includes tent space and a screened in (all sides, including the floor) freestanding porch/room. Large firepits, enclosed bathroom, a heated shower, electric cooking stove and acres of walking space were all pointed out. I was expecting a totally primitive location and setup, and instead had an experience more similar to glamping. No complaints here!
After the living space, she took us on a walk to some nearby bonuses. She pointed us to a trail containing possibly the only waterfall in Florida, and in the other direction canoe access and a private beach along the Suwanee River. It was also pointed out that due to the secluded nature of the location, this was a total dark sky location. Not easy to find in the Eastern States!
We stayed in the screen enclosed room on an air mattress that we brought along. No bugs, and soft pleasant lighting was provided by colored lights on the ceiling. Plenty of airflow too, which I believe would make this a great place to stay even in the Florida summer.
All in all, this was a very comfortable experience. Plenty to see and keep you occupied, great hospitality, and a very short walk to a waterfall. Everything I'd want while camping.

One of the many areas available to sleep. We stayed in the screened room to the back.Easy access to the Suwannee River!Passing the time. Also, another view of the screened in room with electricity.Large fire pit, plenty of room for tents and hammocks.

It was like living off grid for the weekend. Wonderful natural trails and scenic sites around to enjoy. Loved the covered areas for when it rained. Great fire pit with plenty of fire provided. Loved having a bathroom and toilet to use, shower does run out of hot water fast so just have to conserve water usage. May need to update some of the mini appliances, such as the coffee maker and the microwave, but still was such a treat to have it available while trying to rough it 😉
