Escape to the soulful space and be sure to bring your riding boots and bathing suit.
Tucked in on 4.5 acres, this spot is a secluded, enchanting piece of old Florida. Pitch a tent in one of our four designated camping sites and post set up, take a swim in the pond. Wet a line and see if you can pull in our trophy bass, "Pub Sub," or relax on the embankment. Check out what's growing in the seasonal garden and if you’d like to to visit our horses, cows, KuneKune pigs, and local mascot, Nacho the Donkey, please book a private tour with us!
Florida's gem-colored, healing spring waters are just a 20 minutes up the way and local retreat centers and yoga studios dot the area. Gator fans? Head into Gainesville for a game and to visit the University of Florida.

Places to see near Wildflower Pond
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was the perfect stay away from our home. We needed to get away for just the weekend and this place was just the trick. From the hen that lays eggs, the pond that is the center of everything, the sweet farm dogs that come out to secure the grounds and say hello to the cedar out house that was super quaint and very clean. This place did not disappoint. O and let’s not forget the garden that is there for the picking.
We had a great time at Wildflower Pond. It was hard to leave!! Nothing beats waking up to a waterfront sunrise and being greeted by friendly farm dogs. It felt like a dream.
Quiet and peaceful
This was a really great spot and wonderful place to stay. A small pond is in the center of grassy areas surrounded by trees. Joseph was an excellent host - he welcomed us upon arrival, gave recommendations for things to see in the area, and even took the time to show us his vegetable garden and offered us fresh veggies. Would definitely stay here again!
Perfect, quiet spot
We had a great time at Wildflower Pond! We stayed three nights - one night at site 1 in a dry camping spot and 2 nights with full water/electricity hookup at site 2. There is a pond in the middle of the three sites where you can fish and we had an inflatable boat we used to paddle around as well. Easy to have a fire at night and enjoy the sounds of the birds. It’s only 30 minutes from springs so if you’re looking for a central camping spot but still want to venture out this is a great one. Joseph (goes by Zane), his wife and father in law are great people. They spent some time with us on telling about the story of the property and even showing us the baby chicks they have. We ended up going home with three!
Only feedback for the hosts would be to state that it is not free to see the farm animals despite site description. It was $20 for our family and although we loved interacting with the pigs, donkey, goat, horse and chickens it was still a surprise to hear it had a cost given the way the description was written but since we already got our son excited about It there was no turning back . We usually seek out HipCamp sites with farm animals so it was a little unexpected. Overall we would definitely go back and wish this family much success!
Wait until you see the stars
Our second stay in the past few months. We love it here. This time around we saw horses visit the camp area along with the farm dogs with the owners. They stayed to themselves while tending to the garden and just enjoying the evening. We love the abundance of stars that can be seen at night here. I saw the brightest shooting star during this trip. I would recommend this place a 1000x again and again.
Let them be little
The host and hostess were kind and gracious. The farm tour was a huge hit with the kids. The next day our oldest (9) rode Jupiter around the property and through the pines, while my youngest (3) and I fished from the pond. When they were done we watched them swim in the stock tank most of the afternoon.
I didn’t have to worry for a moment about safety and our worries faded away.
