High Springs Campground is a picturesque scene with majestic oak trees and a restful ambiance, ideal for travelers and those looking to spend time in a reclusive, natural setting.
If you’re on route to South or central Florida, this leisurely campground is the perfect place for weary road trippers to take a break. RVers can look forward to a full hook-up of electricity (30/50 amp), water, and sewer on dirt/gravel pads with pull-thru sites plus a swimming pool to cool off after a long day on the highway. Kids won't feel left out with a playground designed to burn off youthful energy. There are permanent campers living here but generally, sites are available for tents, RVs, and the bigger rigs.
A grassy area is set aside for those wanting to sleep under the stars with a picnic table and fire ring. Campfires are a great way to warm up on a cold night or create a romantic atmosphere as new friends are made and camping stories shared. There are 45 sites for RVs and tents with well-kept restrooms, showers, plus a laundry and Wi-Fi for campers wanting to access the Internet.
The hosts appreciate people on the road can be traveling with their dogs, but they do ask for pooches to be on their best behavior when in the camp and stay on-leash. Owners are required to pick up their woofer's waste and bring no more than two pets to the camp.
The cozy city of High Springs, around 4 miles from the campground, is home to hot water springs that draw folks from all over to be rejuvenated by this healing gift of nature. If you love collecting vintage or antique items, Antique Center is sure to delight the visitor with alluring, pre-loved relics of the past. Twenty miles on is Gainsborough where the Butterfly Forest, an innovative display at the Florida Museum of Natural History, allows people to roam freely in a tropical-themed area with exotic butterflies.
