This place is very relaxing and grounds are maintained beautifully. Can sit outside your room and watch the humming birds in the morning along with some coffee and a good book. Trees that you know have to be over a hundred years old offer shade and solitude. Great looking fire pit but since it was late June way to hot... More

Very unfriendly management. I wouldn't take my family here again. The lake is nice, but the staff is so negative, it makes a very unpleasant vacation. To top it off, they changed the price when we got there. Ugh.

These people are rude and NOT friendly. Called about pricing, would not give me a definite answer and acted like he didn't have time to deal with me. Kept saying "I don't know how much" and when asked for a ballpark price still refused and got a attitude. Lost my business before I even got there.

Over the phone I didn't like their attitude and in person even worse. Not friendly. Spoke to us like crap. Even my dad said later, " I don't like these people, their not nice." The boats were great and the lake is great but they act like you're bothering them. I even saw him take a call at the desk... More

My husband and I stayed at this property because my daughter was getting married in nearby Paisley, FL. My biggest regret is that I didn't have the foresight to book the entire place for the bridal party and my extended family! The grounds are beautifully tranquil and well maintained. We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit. A prior reviewer mentioned... More

What a gorgeous, tranquil, quiet and friendly place! They are kid, boat, family, RV and pet friendly! We had our wedding here. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking and the staff extremely friendly and accommodating! We are thinking of having our family reunion here next and planning at least an annual trip here! The prices also can't be beat. Great spot... More

The staff seemed friendly enough to us. The fact that you can get a full kitchen really does make a huge difference! The grounds were gorgeous and the swimming pool was VERY nice. We didn't use the marina, but that only adds to the plusses of this place.

The office worker was very friendly & informative. Its beside a lake that connects to St John's River. It's very pretty view, the cabins aren't right along the water, but I guess that will keep you good distance from the gators lol. You can kayak, stay in your RV here, rent cabins, along with bringing your own boat, have boat... More

The grounds at this resort are lovely and beautifully maintained. Very tranquil and quiet. The pool was delightful and had a nice covered area to seek shade. We were three couples traveling together and rented the 3 bedroom 2 bath. There were definately some maintance issues in the unit. The ceiling in the kitchen is litterally falling in. I can't...

The male staff there is rude and not friendly, but the one little woman there is. Other than that I really cant leave a lengthy review because I get upset and Trip Advisor wont post when I am angry! I guess if I have to post a "friendly" review I will just say - BUYER BEWARE!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
