“ Susceptible to Standing Water”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2019

Overall Rating

Only the first loop of this campground was open during our on-site visit. A reservation is required to obtain the gate code to access the campground. There was not a usable cell signal on either Verizon or AT&T from the campground. I parked up the forest road in a small parking area and scouted this campground on foot.

There was still standing water on both sides of the campground loop road from rains that occurred the week prior. The road is narrow and while height clearance isn’t an issue within the campground loop road, most sites with the exception of Site Number 8 are too narrow to maneuver a fifth wheel into the site. Smaller campers or trailers less than 25 feet should be able to use most of the sites. There are several walk-in only sites and a central parking area is available at the rear of the campground loop.

“Spacious, private sites in a quiet forest setting”

Reviewed Jan 26, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites are spacious, quite far from each other, surrounded by palmettos, palm trees and pines.
Each site has a grill and fire pit.
Gate is closed and always locked; so security is good.
Only 20 minutes to Englewood with plenty of stores and services. The Thursday Market is great with local produce.
Site host and rangers are friendly, making period rounds of the Campground.
We stayed in site number 9 which is partly shaded;
On the downside there is no dump station or water supply in the Campground. Potable water is available at the ranger station about 3/4 mile away.
There are two portable toilets between sites 7 and 8.
