Set amidst oaks and cypress on the beautiful Lazy Turtle Lodge, our 10 acre estate, Turtle Palace is the perfect place to escape, float, kayak, canoe, cave dive, bird watch, explore springs or watch the river flow. We consider this our little piece of 'heaven on earth'. This unit (we also have Turtle Heaven) is a cozy, comfy, 28' Cardinal RV camper located 15 minutes from Historic High Springs and 40 minutes from the Swamp in downtown Gainesville. The camper has a queen bed, full size pull out sofa, gas stove, fridge, microwave, shower and toilet. All linens, towels, shampoo, and complimentary coffee and tea are provided. Weber grill is available on the large covered wood deck and is perfect for barbecuing after a day on the River. Wonderful double outside showers are the guests' favorites and shower wraps/robes are al... Read more

Pam and Lance live in the Main Lodge by the river and love to see their guests enjoy all that is to offer. The Lodge's 'back yard' is made available to all guests during their stay and the Hosts are available only as needed preferring to give our guests total privacy.

We were so blessed to be able to stay with Pam and Lance! The RV was beautifully decorated and incredibly clean and comfortable! Being right on the river was fantastic! The outdoor showers were amazing. Beautiful nature and wildlife!

We are two seniors who have vacationed in this area of Florida before. The travel trailer was meticulous and had more than enough room .The bed was delightful with fine sheets , quilt, and plenty of pillows. We enjoyed sitting on the spacious attached deck...More

This was the greatest hidden spot ever! We grilled, cooked, floated down the river, escaped from the world and showered outside. I will be returning again. This place is worth every penny.

About the neighborhood
Located between High Springs and Fort White, the Lazy Turtle Lodge is 'in the country'. The last mile of travel is dirt road and there is a sign that reads 'Where the rough road ends the good life begins'. That is the truth. Deer, wild turkeys and Hawks will greet you while the lazy turtles just bask in the sun on the edge of the river. With cypress trees, oaks and Spanish moss, this is truly Old Florida.
