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

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

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

The park is under new management and they seem to be doing a lot to upgrade. Basics: Roads paved and easy to get around, sites paved and long with patio paved and picnic table. WiFi is reasonably fast except during high use periods. Verizon phone and MiFi worked great. Bathroom are dated and need some structural work but were clean. Push button showers and locker room shower heads (neither are a big hit with me) however the pressure was good and the water got hot eventually. The shower room I used had 3 showers stalls with one out of service. I'm not sure it's a 55+ park anymore several RV's with younger adults with kids (comment not a criticism). They were having a special when we were there $99/wk. Great deal but I'm pretty sure it does not represent their regular rate. As was said before, a lot of long term residents and snowbirds. We were in the cheap seats right next to Hwy 40 and it was a bit noisy during the day but not too bad at night. The vast majority of the sites are far enough away that hwy. noise would not be an issue. The sites had plenty of room for the coach and the toad. The folks were very nice and helpful. They had a full calendar of events everyday we were there. You are right across the street from Silver Springs State Park. Shopping and restaurants abound in the area. There is also a brewery in Ocala that makes some tasty beers. Depending on what the real daily/weekly rate is we'd stay here again. - pumper9x9

Many permanents and snowbirds in CG and they were all friendly. Office staff friendly and helpful. Appeared that restrooms & laundry were mopped several times a day. We found a cheaper laundramat about a mile down the road from CG. Wind blew Spanish Moss and sticks out of trees while we were there. The next morning a couple of workers were out picking them up to haul off.
The asphalt sites are very close to one another, have a patio and picnic table, with some shade from the foliage. - ebaldy

Sorry to say but our and several others flooded due to lack of cleaning out drain pipe. Water was almost up to bay doors in class A motorhome. A very old place and outdated. Was but way before large motorhomes were on the road. If your are in anything over 35 ft stay clear of this place. - User3774

Park is geared for retired people. Streets are a little narrow. A lot of full time residents. Train goes by 3 or 4 times a day. Water is not to bad. Pool is nice heater broke while we were here. - deangrimmett

First clue, only RV park in Florida half full at peak season. Very rude when checking in, old and unkempt park. Plumbing and cable problems, unheated dirty bathrooms, loud constant road noise. Much nicer less expensive parks, keep driving ! - Scatter
Feb 2008 - $22.00
Paid a weekly rate for two weeks of 142.50 per week. Streets narrow, With a 35' 5th wheel able to pull in and out but close. Desk person advised coming into site from wrong side and had to go around. That said, very quiet park, neat and clean. cable is available but you have to contract with local company to hook up. Long term only. Close to Ocala and easy in and out. Would stay again. - Baldone

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

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

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

This is a beautiful park. The springs is a local swimming hole, very busy on weekends. There are 3 loops in the campground. Most of the sites are shaded and very large with a good amount of space between. The Fern is for tents only, with dirt road and no set tent pads. The Sandpine has more vegetation separating the sites. I prefer the Tropical Loop which is an easy walk to the springs and nature trail. Your neighbor may be visable but is a good distance away. There are several pull-through sites. A few sites are in full sun during the day, but most are under large trees. You can hear traffic on Hwy 40 at night but it isn't that loud to wake you up. Bathrooms were kept very clean even on the weekend. Showers have a push button which automatically turns off after a couple of minutes. I would give it a 9 or 10 if they had electrical hook ups. The Juniper Canoe Run is 7 miles, narrow and shallow in most places. Toward the end it is more open and sunny. They say it is not for beginners as there are lots of fallen trees in the water, curves, a constant current and one small area of rapids. They check coolers for disposal bottles and alcohol. They will send you back if you have these. They have a shuttle service to take you back at the end of the canoe run but you must register and pay at the store in advance. We also stayed at Alexander Springs but I prefer Juniper Springs. - On the Road again 11

For looks and quiet this place is a 10. But we were very disappointed that the concessionaire at the gate does not recognize the "access pass" we have. This is the first USFS facility that did not honor this. Good cell service, had to set the direct TV out and about to shoot thru the trees and the motosat no way. But again very peaceful and serene. - idahojoat

We usually try to stay at least two weeks in this wonderful park every visit to Florida. Some really nice, large sites, some of which are full hookups, some truly beautiful walking trails, but the main attraction to this park is the incredible springs and river. Easily some of the best paddling in freshwater anywhere in Florida. If you don't own kayaks, do yourself a favor and rent them here. Super clear water allows for great views of the fish, gators, and manatees. Book well in advance if you want a full hookup site. - Jerry and Betsy

We stayed in cabin #10. Liked this location because it's at the end of the row and secluded. Cabin was very clean although there was a strong odor of flowery fragrance from cleaning materials in the kitchen. 2 good sized bedrooms 1 has queen bed and other 2 twins. Gas fireplace but doesn't let out a lot of heat because it's glass enclosed also on a timer. There is central air and heat in cabin. Bedding is provided as well as linens. Very basic kitchen stuff. Has a dishwasher and microwave. Says cabin will fit 6 but only items for 4 provided. Bring extra if more people. We could see have a family gathering here easily.We hiked 2 trails-River Trail and Sinkhole trail both were easy hikes, River trail was wet from recent rain. During week not much going on but weekends are busy with the museum and activities. We went to Silver Springs one day which is included in camp fee, check in and get your receipt before going over. It does not include glass bottom boat tour though. Restrooms and playground in park very clean. Staff was pleasant. Not far from restaurants and Walmart if supplies needed. - FL Camper

Very nice location. Huge site. Rangers/ staff keep all sites spiffy. Sewer on some sites. Portable dish may see out between the trees Antenna pretty useless. All restaurants/stores very close on RT 40. Short drive to spring to walk the grounds. Very very good ice cream at the concession. - Libby
