“Cheap, Big Rig Ready Boondocking ”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Margot Bai's review below is pretty on point re: this campground (Kudos Margot!)

Boondocking site.

We called the camp manager as we were driving towards the campground, and he informed us that there should be space available - a group of equestrians had just left from a weekend of cowboy type activities (assumption). He had us call him back after we arrived and parked, gave us a permit #, and asked us to dump some $$ into the self-pay station.

To access the campground you must drive down 2 miles of dusty, semi-washboard, wide road. Don't be a fool (like me) and thoroughly wash your rig the day before planning to arrive at this campground.

We pulled in and chose site #1 for its access to full sunshine on those solar panels- we haven't had to run the generator at all since arriving (thanks Florida!) There is a slight aroma of horse manure, but it is not overbearing. Also, nature. The site is big and pretty level. There is a picnic table, fire-ring, and a few horse pens in case you are traveling with your trusty steed. Also, site #1 is a pull through site if you want to make it that.

The rest of the site are adorable and much more private - although we have been the only campers here since arrival anyways. We're here for a Sunday-Friday stay, so can't speak for what type of crowd the weekend draws in. We have had some horse riding friends some through for a ride though.

The running/walking out here is amazing. Endless roads to trot yourself (or your steed) down for hours.

There is a porta-john and non-potable water available.

A 20 minute drive to Ormand Beach where all of your modern needs can be met (i.e. Starbucks).

We've got 9 down & 3 up for Verizon and 7 down & 3 up for AT&T on hotspots without boosters.

“Quiet RV accessible wild camp with only 4 sites and lots of space near Daytona Beach”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2017

Overall Rating

A pretty campground surrounded by tall pines and young live oaks with a palmetto understory. Some leaf litter and ticks. No electricity. Facilities include a portapotty with a poo mountain, a water pump with non-potable water and garbage bins.

Entrance to the campground is down a wide flat gravel road that has extensive washerboard - slow going for an RV but entirely passable. Only 4 official sites, if there are no sites available, Bennett Campground is farther south down the same road and has 6 sites. Great location a short 20 minute drive to Daytona Beach or Ormond Beach.

Currently you must call to book your site on the day of arrival and pay by cash or check at the iron ranger pay station in the pay envelope. Office opens at 7am and you can call even before you arrive. This may be changing as they said on the phone that they are working on setting up an online reservation system.

Site 1 has the best exposure for sun/solar, the others are more shady, though 4 is next best. Upon arrival, site 1 was empty but when we called, we found out it had already been booked. Site 2 was supposed to be available but there was a motorhome parked there the office didn't know about. A truck camper pulled in and parked overnight in the open area that was not an official site. I assume rangers do come in to check on things - I passed one on the road in but never saw one at the campground during our stay. We were able to extend our stay twice by calling in the morning and simply asking and then putting another $10 in the post.

Lovely dirt/grass road leads east from the campground great for cycling or hiking. I saw white-tailed deer and a gopher tortoise. Mostly quiet except for some generator noise from neighboring campers. Huge spacious area for equestrian activities plus multiple horse pens including a good size round pen.
