We used this service to shuttle our vehicle and trailer to the take out point from the state park north ramp. The people were great, very helpful with unloading and helping us launch our heavy tandem kayak. Would definitely use their services again for sure....More

I actually booked a stay at this campground and upon arrival turned around and went somewhere else. First of all, it's right off the main road (no privacy), the ground is dirt (actually mud), the bathhouse looked like it was from a horror move and...More

This campground is a slice of real Florida. It's rustic natural authentic. If you are looking for the Disney experience, this is not the place for you. The roads are dirt, the camp sites have leaves in them. The bath house is clean, functional and...More

Perfect location to get to the Ichetucknee Springs. The sites were close to, but not right on top of each other. We stayed on the primitive spot that had power and water hook ups. Make sure you have an outlet adapter for power if you...More

Positive: The location to the north entrance of the spring could not have been better. It's literally walking distance but you've got to get there with your tubes before 8am or you'll have to drive to the south entrance. A/C unit in the cabin -...More

The bath house shower stalls have been re-tiled. The bathroom toilet stall doors could use new locks though. The problem as I see it, is the campers who use the facilities and do not clean after themselves. I don't believe... More
