The entire family is extremely nice and easy to deal with. The experience was great. From the drop off at the kayak launch to the timely pick up at the end of the ride. Only concerns are regarding the camp ground itself. The bathrooms are in a really bad condition and we chose not to take a shower there for... More

My friend and I stayed here back in January (which was off season). Tracy and her family were very accomodating and helpful. We were supposed to sleep in a tent but it was about 40 degrees so we upgraded to a cabin. The next day we rented a double kayak and went to the beautiful springs. We saw tons of... More

In addition to renting tubes for river rafting, they also have a convenience store. Very nice people. We have stayed at their campground (in past years). It is small and fills up quickly, but a fun place to camp (primitive, or cabin).

The first thing you may notice when you pull in is the overflowing dumpster ! Don't worry that going to be the most sanitary thing you will see there ! The restrooms/bathhouse is hands down the most disgusting unsanitary facility that our family has ever been too ! There were sanitary pads (used) on the floors as well as an... More

This place is awful. They advertise they have clean restrooms. They look like they have not been touched since they were built in the 60s. There was trash on nearly every surface and it smelled like sewage. The campsites offer ZERO privacy. Kids were walking back and forth and throwing a foot ball into our site while we were setting...

I decided I wanted to go visit the ichetucknee springs for my bday for a little kayaking/tubing. I found this camping spot online and decided to give it a shot. Like anyone else, we were nervous about the place and how clean it would be. It was super! The staff was nice, laid back and very helpful. The bathrooms and... More

I am a big fan of Disney but sometimes you just need to get a way. I originally was going to stay at a state park for my river adventure. I changed because the Olena State Park didn't allow campfires. I am glad I did. The cabins are simple and basic. You bring your own bedding, but there is electricity... More

The folks here are great and really don't need another good review...So I thought I'd post a reminder to other paddlers they will bring you back to the launch after you leave your vehicle at the south entrance. If nothing else stop by the store and learn some local history and pet the cat.

Uncomplicated simple lodging. Very basic but what it lacks in comforts makes up for in location and secluded relaxed atmosphere. Only complaint was cabin smelt slightly musky.

Great place to stay and destress. We stayed in their cabin that sleeps 4, include two full-sized beds which sleep four, a table with chairs, two rocking chairs, a lamp, and A/C in the summer or space heaters in the winter. There is a swing on the porch, a fire ring, a charcoal grill and a picnic table outside. There... More
