“Nice quiet free camping close to shopping!”

Reviewed Jan 25, 2019

Overall Rating

We spent 6 days here and it was great. The campground is gated and locked and has about 8 spots which encompasses a smallish circle drive with fire pits and picnic tables. It stayed busy but there was plenty of room for all to stretch out and still have privacy. It could get tricky getting a spot with enough sun to feed your solar pa... more

“A Bit Too Tight for Big Rigs”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2019

Overall Rating

Made a reservation and accessed the campground to assess suitability for my 2019 Cougar Fifth Wheel. There are approximately six (6) level areas that will accommodate a big rig. However, the single lane access road is too tight on both overhead clearance and roadside overgrowth for my liking. If you don't mind scratching your big ri... more

“Great first night in the van!”

Reviewed Nov 28, 2018

Overall Rating

This was our first night staying in our van anywhere, so we went with a nearby free site. It is easy to access as it’s right across the street from a Publix and the gate is just on the right where you’ll have to enter your registration code to unlock the padlock. There were probably 5-6 other sites being used when we were there. The to... more

“Had a great time here!”

Reviewed Feb 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Easy to find spot with nearby supermarket and access to some great trails, what’s not to like? Arrived on a Monday so it was quiet and did get busier on the Friday. Stayed in the primitive area without anyone else around, you can ride a trail over to the Jay B Starkey wilderness park which is about 24 miles round trip or hike the trail... more

“Awesome and free ”

Reviewed Dec 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here Christmas Eve weekend. It was quiet and peaceful. Some people left some trash, which we cleaned up. It has a vault toilet, while convenient, was yucky. Definitely boondocking at its finest. The road in is hard packed and you can probably get a smaller camper back here. Great hiking and a couple of fishing holes. We had t... more

FYI, Pasco County Commissioners are trying to build a road through the Preserve which will cut off access to the JB Starkey Preserve. Please contact Pasco County to help stop this.
