Located on the beautiful Ocklawaha River in the Ocala Forest, we offer canoe and kayak rentals with transportation to areas on the river where you can explore all old Florida has to offer. See manatee, alligators, turtles & a full array of birds as you drift back to our private landing on the river. We have cabins to rent with full amenities-including bedding, dishes, microwave, mini fridge & cook top. Each cabin has it's own fire pit and bbq grill. We also have primitive camp sites with the use of our bath house as well as very large RV sites with full hook-ups. If you are looking to unwind and relax, we are just the place to do it. Whether you stay a day or a month, our resort will have you loving old Florida like we do!
