Bass fishing on the St Johns River

Launch your boat at the nearby marina and enjoy a day of bass fishing on the St. Johns River. Boat rentals are also available. Just a mile upstream is Lake George, the second largest lake in Florida, is a prized fishing spot for largemouth bass fishing. A short downstream is Lake Dexter, another popular spot for bass fishing. It is also the site of many local tournaments.

Hiking State trails

Also, near the campground is Lake George State Forest, where you can spend the day hiking along the state trails. You will be able to take in the stunning scenery with a front-row view of butterflies, dragonflies, wildflowers, birds, and abundant wildlife in their natural habitat. Some of the wildlife that resides here include bald eagles, black bears, wild turkeys, deer, and the sandhill crane, to name a few.

Campfire Cookouts

One of the finer pleasures of camping in the forest is enjoying an “old-fashioned” campfire cookout. Our campgrounds feature charcoal grills so our guests can enjoy grilling their favorite dishes along with all the fixin’s for a spectacular family dinner in nature’s paradise.

Relaxing Under the Stars

When you go camping in the forest, you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city and relax under the stars. Without the bright city lights and noise, you will have a clear view of the night sky. It's a great way to spend the evening with the family. In the morning, you will wake up to the pleasant sounds of chirping birds, signaling the start of another day of adventure.
