My husband and I spent a week at Sawmill - our second (his third) visit but the first weeklong stay. We were greeted warmly by many and by the end of the week had made new friends and had spent the most relaxing vacation week that we had ever had. The poolside massage by Rik, a licensed massage therapist, had... More

We are planning a trip from New Mexico to Florida and back for vacation this year. I had stayed at Sawmill years ago and wanted to take my partner and our son there. I contacted Sawmill regarding their $25 membership fee and asked if the membership fee could be reduced for us since we would only be staying two nights.... More

Being a frequent visitor to the campground and either using a campsite or cabin, I was fortunate enough to be lucky and win two nites in the new accomodations, THE BUNKHOUSE. It has a home feeling with complete kitchen and fireplace. It has a great covered front porch area to sit and watch the "wildlife" and such. Inside, it has... More

I'm going to let a couple of secrets out of the bag about this place: First, I believe that during the week it is the best overall adult lodging value in all of Florida. Their weekday rates for everything from their deluxe cabins to the most primitive campspot simply can't be beat. And it's clothing-optional with a nice little poolside... More

I had anticipated my stay after reading reviews in other gay sites, but I was neither blown away or completely dissatisfied. It was (is) a campground and as far as campgrounds go it is typical. Straight, gay or otherwise. CONS: I was in a space backed up to Woodies and the "courtyard. I anticipated the noise and the knew I... More

I buy a yearly pass and enjoy going as much as I can. Have recently started tent camping and love it. You meet a lot more friendly people that way. You have to remember this is a campground not the Ritz. And we're outside with the bugs. Whether you're in a gay or straight campground there always going to be... More
