very good. nice sites, quite a few are reservable, we drove in early and got an open one. have a part of the lake for swimming in warm water and at the same time swim with the manatees. they were there every day, rented a kayak, paddled out and let them swim to you! good gator watching, fishing and a lot of different birding. - yosemitesam

We have camped here many times before. We came across a private owner on craigslist renting their lot cheaper than the official resort was. I was a little worried that the park had gone down hill because of some negative reviews on here but we had no problems. There was $5 fee for our car and golf cart at the gate but we were told up front so no problem. They have added a large dog park since we were here last. We normally spend one full day at the springs, but once you have done that the state parks have nothing else to offer. Love staying here because we have constant access to the lake and pools. We dropped our boat in the lake on Sunday and didn't put it back on the trailer until we left on Friday. Stayed anchored on the beach and were able to jump in and go whenever we wanted. The bathrooms are not fancy but they were very clean. We used them every night instead of bothering with our tiny camper shower. At first I was disappointed the site was not closer to the water, but our site in the back of the park was very shady and quiet and we didn't have to worry about through-traffic while the kids were out playing. Plus the lot was long enough that we were able to leave the truck hooked up to our 30 ft trailer and still park the bikes and golf cart in the back. We plan to book same site next year. - FloridaRVfamily

This older park is considered a private, condominium community, that is open to the public. It has many owners and long-term renters. A $5 cash fee for non-owners is charged at the gate. We rented a site through the Elite Resort Management company by phone. They do have an office just outside the park. The sales person was very helpful and made sure we knew there would be no cable television due to the cable company digital conversion process. We use a Verizon MiFi and had okay service for the cell phone and internet. Internet was available in the Lodge. Everyone we met was very friendly. The family pool was closed, but the other pool and hot tub were being used quite a bit. A book and puzzle exchange is located in the Lodge. Our pull-through site (#3) was long and wide enough so the Jeep could be parked next to the coach. We did have to position the car and the picnic table to stop golf carts and people from walking through the site. Have to admit, it didn't stop all the walkers! Electricity, water, and sewer were all in good condition. - DiplomatTraveler

This park is part of the Ocala National Forest through recreation.gov. It's rustic and quiet and each site is quite private with heavy vegetation between sites. The restrooms are clean and showers are hot. Water spigots are conveniently placed between each campsite at the road. Nice dish washing pantry at the bath house. Camp hosts are extremely nice, stopping to chat or answer questions. Bear/raccoon proof trash containers are everywhere. Dirt sites and interior roads however that didn't deter our group on Touring motorcycles. Great riding in the area and stores are up the road. A firewood vendor up the road delivered firewood to our site for a couple bucks. We had a great time with 18 people and 12 bikes all tenting. There was a beach and a lake, very clean and nice. Sites all had lantern hangers, metal lattice picnic tables, fire rings and shade trees. We'd stay again, it's quiet and back to nature. - Full-timers

This is rustic camping at it's finest! This is a first come, first serve national forest park. Two great hosts greeted us at the gate. There are security codes for the gate after hours, and security codes for the nice neat clean bathrooms too. Well-spaced out sites with plenty of palmetto bushes, tall live oaks, dripping Spanish moss and quiet surroundings make this quite a tranquil experience. Each site has a huge picnic table of a plastic coated grid mesh that we have never seen before. Each site also has a built in charcoal grill, fire ring, and tall lantern hook. We are still camped here as I write this. Air card internet via Sprint allows me to access the net from this remote location. We were only going to stay the weekend, but we decided to stay 2 or 3 more days! Our folks are camping in the next site for only $6 a night, with Golden Age passport. There is a dump station and also water spigots placed all over the park, usually within hose distance to most sites to fill your camper up again if needed (don't leave your hose hooked up all the while, that is not fair to the other campers) Some sites are pull through, others are short and better for tents. We are here with 2 big diesel rigs 40-footers. The two friendly hosts are busy all the time, cleaning, picking up stuff, chatting with folks and answering questions. Nice beach with fenced off swimming area for gator protection. Bear-proof trash containers spaced all through the park at convenient places, not just at the entrance. Our friends are coming to join us tomorrow on the next site, and we might just stay a few more days. - kareninthewoods

I usually wait a bit after leaving a camp ground to write a review, but since the neighbors @ 3 am are still going strong with their party, now seems appropriate. There are a lot of staff at this camp grounds, they all have golf carts and are very actively driving around, yet not one enforces dogs running freely or the 6 foot leash rule. There are large dogs loose every where, some are on 20 foot long ropes, some run freely, and the barking is crazy annoying. I did report this as 2 decided to visit my camp site and pee on some of our items and forced us inside. That was 8 days ago, still running freely. One night a large lab was running after a squirrel and ended up under our RV pulling loose the sewer, elec and making for a rude surprise wake up call. Part of the issue is there is no ranger or other authority person to enforce the rules, the park is run by a private company. Quiet hour will also only work if enforced. I have to give the neighbors a solid "10" for hitting the pickup bed every time when throwing their empty beer cans into it from their fire pit. Pros: nice biking around the area, hiking and had many sightings of gators, manatees, turtles and birds. Sites are level and full hook ups, big trees and squirrels every where. Price for senior NP is nice. Cons: wifi is close to non existing, cell service is good about 25 minutes from the camp ground (ATT), bath houses are not heated so the walls and floors are wet from humidity, no laundry room, dogs can be off leases, quiet hours not enforced. lots of road noise. I won't be back. - hiker13

We stayed a week in our 5th wheel travel trailer. We found the park the be clean, well maintained, and conveniently located to all of the kayaking runs we intended to visit. As others have noted, the Salt Springs are wonderfully refreshing and enjoyable. We stayed in site 56, next to the restrooms. Good WiFi reception, and while not blazing fast, it was adequate for getting mail and checking web sites. We also had decent Verizon LTE speeds. - Red Wolf

This is out in middle of nowhere. If you want quiet, lay around kind of place, this is it. Used mainly by four wheeler folks to run trials in area. Campground is clean, spread out and large. Pads are grass and generally level. Evenings are quiet and surprisingly bug free at this time anyway (March 2018). The campground employees were very nice. They do have a pool and clubhouse. Pool is clean. - Dov327

Really nice park, large grassy sites, pool, quiet! There was no one here! It is in a very rural area. The park has a pool, a store and is right near a large lake. Very nice area to hike and boat. If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is the place! We gave it an A. - H42 Sailing

Too many ATV riders and too many folks who refuse to abide by park rules. Most of the ATV riders watched their speed while in the park but some drove way too fast. Others had radios/music players that were way too loud. There were several non-ATV campers who let their dogs run loose, which is c9ncern for those of us with small dogs...which we keep leashed as we're supposed to. The 50 A campsites range from somewhat unlevel to impossibly uneven. The 30 A sites are somewhat better . Since the weather was cool during our stay we were able to get by with less current but in hot weather this would have been a real problem. The clubhouse is very roomy and recently renovated. - dhaney1944

Have stayed here many times, each time we have had problems with wifi, tv (only 9 channels, very poor choices) and park has gone down hill in quality. Park has rules, but doesn't enforce them. If it weren't for the good people who camp there and run all the activities I would look elsewhere. Need staff improvement. - Northern Traveler5

This CG seems to be transitioning to full-timers and several sections are dedicated to them. Nevertheless, we were greeted with a smile and found the facility to be just fine. Our site had a lake view and was relatively level. Others had to use plenty of blocks to get level. There is a beach and a play area for kids, as well as fenced area for dogs. Lots of shade. The restrooms and showers were clean, but getting old. WiFi, cable TV and cell service satisfactory. - Rusty Tailpipe

Good swimming, lots of tourist. Nice staff. Silver Springs is a great place to see. About 20 minutes to Palatka and also very close to the Ocala National Forest. About 2 hours to Orlando. Wi-Fi spotty and a few tv channels but that was fine as we were there for Silver Springs. - EACreech

My husband and I stated here for a while in the winter months, we will never go back, the camp hosts were great, but manager made me feel really uncomfortable, he had made many sexual remarks to me, he said he had a camera on the pool at all times so he could watch the girls. When it would rain you would be in a swamp, the water would come well over your feet. Some of the others were friendly, since most of them have been going there for years. They had their own "clique" if you didn't fit into that or if 1 person didn't like you then no one would talk to you. - PennyD

Stayed Feb 2016 to April 22 2016 Clean park. Management and staff were friendly. Sites sand-grass, sunny/open to some shade, nearby to spacious lot spacing, and included a picnic table. There were several activities in the park; the park has been underrated by people that formerly resided in the park and gave it a bad rating due to their behavior in the park. Its a nice park. Good value. - E Hayward

Would never recommend this park to anyone. Dirty bathrooms, no toilet paper, pool not open most days, manager and others in park get visits from sheriff too often, says credit cards taken but manager made us pay cash for two months in advance. Rain makes it a swampland, had to go barefoot to get to vehicle or wade in water and mud and ruin shoes. Could be great park but poor management and too much drama. - Traveler2440

To start with - if you are in a large DP and staying less than 1 week - they will put you in the Village Park section. That alone should be enough reason not to go there. If, however, you are staying for more than 1 week, they will put you in the Preserve Estates section. That is a totally different area that was specifically designed for large RV's and is very well laid out. Unfortunately, we were staying less than 1 week so we were told that was not available to us. The entire Village Park section of 142 lots only had 2 small size Gas Class A's and for good reason. The streets are very narrow with branches overhanging in some areas. Cable has 15 channels and there is no WiFi. If we had been put in the section designed for Class A's - our review would be much more positive. The staff are friendly and the grounds are very well kept. Now back to our site - there was a picnic table that was very small and had to have been there since the Civil War. The spacing was "okay". But certainly not very spacious. Way overpriced for what we got. Calling it a "Resort" doesn't make it true. You need modern amenities. - rv time

The sites have no picnic tables, and no WIFI in the park except in the lodge. The concrete pads in the slum section are so small the last step out of the camper leads to a mud puddle. There is also no place to park a tow vehicle and the entire lot is mud. Mud is everywhere in the park along with standing water. The puddles in front and back of our camper were a few inches deep and were there the entire month. The park only has one nice section and the others are akin to a bad area of a large town. The slum sections have narrow and worn out roads with water holes everywhere. No improvements have been made for years and it is in ruins. The park supposedly has a rule where no campers older than 10 years can stay there but the sections apart from the newer area (some of them also had old junk) are full of 20 year old pieces of junk. Many sites are very uneven and people are forced to take extreme measures to level their units. There is no trash service and only one dumpster. The bathrooms have not been cleaned in months and are full of black mold and the showers are covered with caked on water deposits. The water has a high sulfur content and smells like rotten eggs. The highway in front of the park is very busy and heavy traffic can be heard 24 hours per day. The park quiet time is supposed to end at 7 am and lawnmowers and weed eaters are running at 7:30. The entire park was without water for an entire afternoon due to the single water main servicing the entire area. The park is covered with fire ant mounds and nearly all the electrical connection pillars have mounds which is dangerous. The water connections are a single piece of flimsy pipe and they all leak. There is nothing in the area to do without driving long distances and the overall park is very inactive. Everyone has a dog so the main activity is watching people pick up after their dogs. They also allow vicious dogs in the park because we saw a person with a Pit Bull in his golf cart. - Travelers456

Large property and plenty of space to walk the dog. Plus a large dog run. All utilities ok - but I could only get wifi in clubhouse. Clear sky for sat. Library in clubhouse for trades. Cold so did not use the pool, but it looks very nice. Huge laundry. Narrow sites. - Libby

Rodman Campground is great park for fisherman with boats. The St John's River canal and lake are easily reachable from the park launch site. Our site was in the Phase 1 section, and was a bit too much like commercial parks for the site spacing, but it wasn't real bad. The Phase 2 section has better spacing between sites. The 30 amp electric and water locations were convenient for hooking up. The dump station near the check in office is easy to use, but oddly, it has two lanes and only one dump port. Our Verizon cell service was very poor here, but our AT&T service was surprisingly strong given the remoteness of the location, so our hotspot gave us solid Internet service and VOIP phone service. We would stay here again if the location fit our schedule, although we'd prefer a Phase 2 site next time. - NYDutch

Shady, quiet, remote, what a GREAT place. As with most Fla State Parks the showers and restrooms were very, very nice. We spent 4 nites while we attended the Palatka Bluegrass Festival at the Rodeheaver Boy's Ranch just 6 miles away. As Fla senior residents we only paid $11 per night. There are 2 campgrounds, phase 1 & phase 2, we stayed at site 45 in phase 2. Phase 1 has a boat ramp if you have a boat or kayak. No sewers at the sites but a great dump station on the way out. - Cdr Bob

Pleasant staff at check-in. Site was gravel and not level. Clean bathhouse but very poor water pressure in shower. Nice convenience that they sell both firewood and ice. Sad that the camphost doesn't keep his dog on a leash. - Debbie and John

Warning! Not a big rig friendly site! Owners very rude, no wifi, no cell service, site uneven, low trees broke my antenna. Owner was supposed to cut trees so I could leave and never did. I had to ask a neighbor to drive my truck pulling my fifth wheel while I laid on top to keep the limbs from tearing my roof! - Fulltimer__2

Very nice owners who live on site. The grass was well kept. The sites are grass, level, with a picnic table and well spaced. The neighbors were friendly and it was a quiet campground. There was a communal fire Saturday night that was well attended by permanent and temporary campers. The only downside is the rough roads. - esta34950

We stayed in Spot 14, The owners are on site. The park is clean. The owners are real friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is quiet and out of the way, and an hour or two from the amusement parks or the beaches. I highly recommend this campground if Quiet and Serene is what your looking for.
Oh, and the Cable TV worked awesome for our entire stay. The bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and well kept. The water pressure in the showers is awesome: "like getting a massage every morning." We will stay here again. - Jack Mac Innes

Just a warning to others....... Their website is VERY misleading. We needed a place to stay for a month in Central Florida. We called from the previous campground that we'd been staying at to see if they had availability. The lady on the phone said "we only have one left". Since the campground that was our first choice was already full we went ahead and booked it. She wanted our credit card over the phone. I know better than paying for a site before seen but she said it was the last one! So I gave her the credit card number which she said would be charged that day. (Absolutely no refunds)
This could be a very long story but I will cut to the chase and comment on discrepancies with their website.
Concrete pads - I don't see any. We are parked on grass that sinks when it rains.
Restaurant- There is no restaurant on site much less that delivers. There is a mini mart at the entrance. Don't expect to get your milk and bread there, but if it's beer and soda you are after you are in luck!
Beach/Swimming footsteps from your site - There is no beach on the property. There is no water that you can swim in on property unless you don't mind swimming with alligators! There is a beach that you can see from the property but you need a vehicle to get there. It is part of the National Forest system so you have to pay fees to get in.
Laundry - Yes, there is a laundry "onsite" but it sits facing State Highway 40 and has a big sign with the hours written on it (the hours on the sign are incorrect) so it is open to the public. There is only COLD water wash available.
Boats and jet ski rental (As described on the Passport America site under 'highlights') - None.
Don't bother sending an email inquiry as their website suggests. I never did get a response. I also would caution you to NOT get anything of importance sent to you here via mail. We never did get the FedEx "overnight" envelope that was sent to us. Everybody that we met that was staying here was very nice. - RunAroundSue
