This 5 acre (really 10) end of the road property is WAY off the beaten path, but close enough to civilization to keep you supplied. We are at the South end of the Key Peninsula, aka the Sunny Key. We are less than 3 miles to Joemma Beach State Park, and a few more miles to Penrose Point State park , where you can clam, fish, or dig for oysters and muscles in season. Bay Lake is between the 2 State Parks and offers great fresh water fishing for stocked Rainbow Trout.
The south Key is also some great bicycling
Our camping land is 8 year old clear cut, that we are turning into a pasture. It is still a little rough. Bring good solid footwear. Think scrubby and thorns, not a front lawn or park grass. We also own the 5 acres across the street, that we are developing into a farmstead. We are clearing blackberry and opening more areas to pitch tents in every other weekend.
There is NO POTABLE WATER on the property this is a dry camp. So just like BLM land, bring plenty of water, and practice PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT. Have a waste plan for your #2. Pee anywhere you want. We appreciate the fertility.
There is a camp host family that has a trailer near the entrance. Check in with Gabbi and Josh when you arrive. They always have bales of firewood ready for campers. Better deal than Safeway if you don't want to plan ahead. There is a 320 gallon tote with FIRE WATER, 5 gallon buckets, and a fire shovel right at the enterance. Make sure you go get a full bucket of water, and the fire shoved BEFORE you spark a fire on our property. Burning our neighbors homes down would suck for everyone. Your camping areas are a couple hundred feet away. Feel free to drive vehicles back to unload. Then put cars back in the parking spots near the enterance. You will have a very private camping experience. Please no hunting or firearms discharge on the property. Bows and B.B. guns welcome.
There are still blackberry bushes everywhere. This property has never been sprayed. Enjoy any edibles you find with confidence, they are chemical free. Why we are A WAY better choice than the state parks- You can stay up play/listen to music all night and enjoy a goof camp fire with no visits from a park ranger. You can collect any dead wood on the ground and burn it up FOR FREE. We are 420 FRIENDLY. Enjoy our little valley home. Please be responsible on our land. We are a LONG way from a hospital.

The vibe at Camp SuNeeKee
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This camping spot is for the adventurous, and is a work in progress. It is basically a former blackberry bramble that the owner is converting to a camping spot. First note--wear socks, shoes and pants or be very careful walking. Remnants of blackberry brambles abound! The spot has a lot of positives--it is very quiet, little to no light pollution, and because it has few large trees you can see the stars quite vividly, weather permitting. I saw the full moon rising the first night I was there--really beautiful! Further, it is not near water, so sleeping under the stars is a real options=no mosquitoes! Just have plenty of padding. The few small trees are also great for hammocks! The caretaker and his family are very nice and not intrusive at all, and it is 10 minutes from a state park with pay showers and potable water so you have options there. The owner was very nice and responsive, and is working on improving the site. All in all, a good site with a lot of potential!
