Come share our "hammock" (from the Native Indian culture, meaning "a shady place") as you discover the natural beauty of Old Florida. Unlike your average hotel or motel it’s like having your own waterfront cottage or cabin. Our campground affords spacious campsites so you can enjoy all the same amenities from your own RV. An outdoor vacation for the entire family. Experience "life on the river", where time seems to stand still. We are situated between Hontoon Landing State Park and Blue Springs State Park - a winter haven to dozens of manatees. Great fishing and nature watching.

We did not stay in the hotel but rented a pantoon for 4 hours. Had a wonderful ride on the St. John's river. Boat was clean. Staff friendly. River easy to navigate. Spotted manatees, lots of birds and a couple of gators. Very nice day.
