I love the simplicity of this place, every time I want to escape from the city and all the stress I come here and join my friends. Is a place where gays from all ages, races and shapes can enjoy without feeling discriminate. I also love the new stuff by the pool area.

We spent the weekend with a group of friends and had a wonderful time. The camping area included places where both RV's and Tents could be together. A lot of places won't let that happen, and keep groups separated. The grounds were well maintained and the long term guest (and weekend guest) keep their areas amazing! The pool, bar and... More

Spent the weekend here for a FLnFP invasion and had a great time. Our camping area included both RVs and tents. I felt that the grounds were nice and the people were friendly. I would be outwardly classified as a pansexual female but I felt very welcomed by most everyone I came on contact with. The pool area was nice... More

First off, we live in St Pete, 1.5 hours away and we use an RV. We stayed in a cabin many years ago but our experience is primarily RV camping. Sawmill is what you make it. If you want a relaxing time, you can get it. But you can also get drunk, hookup, and stay up till all hours. Again... More

Good Morning, I am sorry to hear about your recent trip. Can you please email me some specifics Justin@flsawmill.com. Our staff works very hard to ensure that all cabins are cleaned. Infact, we have a deep cleaning schedule so that at least once a month all cabins are deep cleaned in addition to their routine cleaning they receive after each... More

What a pleasant surprise to find the sawmill busy on a Tuesday, pool warm and clean, weather was perfect. Only wished we could have stayed overnite at one of the cabins. For a gay campground, this place surpases our expectations.

The grounds were nice, lots of spaces for tents, and RV's and lots of cute permanent resident campers, too. Check in and check out were quick. The only... More

We have only been members for 10 months and in that time we have met and made friends that we really enjoy being with. The "Dinner Shows" are fun the drag show is very entertaining especially our Miss Trixie. This is casual simple fun for a campground.

The facilities are spotless, the park is well maintained, and the owners routinely upgrade the facilities (like the new dog park). The staff is very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We've never had an issue that wasn't resolved immediately. The staff works hard to have frequent events with really innovative themes. We love it here.
