I highly recommend putting in the coordinates as the name will not get you anywhere. You'll find it pretty easy with the coordinates as it's just tucked away in the bushes.

We found a perfect camping spot under the big trees and created a wonderful camping spot for the work week.

Our service for T-Mobile was getting at peak around 40Mbps and at the slowest was ~4Mbps.

AT&T was able to get up to 10Mbps.

Our verizon service wasn't tested because it wasn't needed but we did get similar signal on it. If we shut the blinds on the trailer, our signal was lost because it is a decently weak signal. If you put the router towards the southern area it picks up better service.

We had a few people on horse back go through the campsite as they adventured through the grounds.

There was also a pack of hunting dogs that visited us before their owners got them away. They enjoyed swiming in a pool of water that was there after it rained. They were sweet dogs.

The place is gorgeous. There are no real grocery places except 30 minutes away. Propane is available at Ace's about 17 minutes away. There is a dump at an RV resort around the same distance that we were also able to fill up water.

Compared to the north end of the forest, this area seems more peaceful and less traffic with better service.

The one bad thing is that it was very messy. A lot of trash everywhere. We were only able to pick up 3 trash bags full but if you can take anything with you, this place needs some TLC on the road coming to it. The actual campground is spotless (we made sure of that) so if it's messy people have made it a mess after this posting.

Note: On Thursday morning there was bombing at the military range about 6 miles away. It sounded like a 1000ft tree falling on the ground. Didn't last long and it was from around 9am to 10:30am with only about 10 to 12 booms.

Also, the road coming in has multiple spots of loose sand so 4x4 is recommended.

We had a hard time finding this place since the road our GPS suggested was closed and we had to back track all the way to highway 42 and reenter the forest at another spot. Your best bet is probably to set your GPS for Big Bass Campground instead and then continue straight down the road for another mile until you come to a clearing on the right. The dirt road is rough and bumpy and we drove as slowly as possible, but our trailer still got shook up pretty good. The only sign when you get there is one saying to pack out your garbage.

It looks like there used to be numbered campsites here, but most of the markers are gone. There are some concrete blocks with rebar sticking out in the center of the clearing so maybe there was a shelter or structure of some sort. The whole site was littered with garbage and a footpath led to another small clearing containing a huge pile of burnt junk. It looked like someone emptied out their RV and tried to burn everything from clothes, shoes, purses, cables, tools, seats, tents, a fan, a hairdryer, an iron, you name it.

The campsite itself was roomy and level like a big circular driveway with some beautiful trees. There are no toilets, trash cans, picnic tables, fire rings, or anything at all really. It was a rainy Monday night and there was not a soul around. Maybe half a dozen pickup trucks passed by on the dirt road throughout the evening, then no more traffic after dark.

It was extremely quiet at night and we had the place to ourselves. The site is located at the top of a slight hill so there was great cell phone and TV reception (point your antenna Southwest towards Orlando). We ran our generator all night to run the A/C and combat the humidity. Not like there was anyone around who could have been bothered by it.

All in all, this was an alright place to spend the night, but I would not want to be there on the weekend or during hunting season. There were shotgun shells all over the ground and bullet holes in the sign at the entrance. This could really be a nice campsite and it's a shame it's been trashed so badly. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets shut down soon.
