Lake Griffin Campground

Vacation time can provide great opportunities to discover new and wondrous things; with that in mind, consider taking your next motorhome camping trip at Lake Griffin Campground near Fruitland Park. This family-friendly RV campground is home to one of the oldest trees in Florida, a mammoth live oak tree situated just outside the RV park's entrance. The park will welcome you with restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and a playground where your kids can work off all that pent-up traveling energy while you get set up and prepared for the coming days. Most of the sites have water and electric (30 or 50 amp) hookups, while a small number have full hookups; there's also a dump station on-site, just in case you need it.Once you're ready to begin, there is a lot to see and do inside the campground and nearby. The park has a boat launch and a place to rent canoes and kayaks; you can go fishing on the Dead River or enjoy angling from the shoreline depending on your preference. There are guided paddle tours you can join, or you can take a pontoon boat tour if you prefer something more relaxing. The park also has a day-use area with fire rings, picnic tables that are ADA-accessible, and scenic views of the boat ramp. There are a horseshoe pitch and a volleyball area (you can inquire about the equipment); if you need to stock up on items and necessities, retail stores are located nearby. Don't forget to take your motorhome rental for a spin while you have the chance; this is one of the great and unique features of RV vacations.

The Great Outdoors

When you've booked one of the RV rentals in Lake County, jump in and head for Half Moon Wildlife Management Area, a picturesque landscape of hammocks, flatwoods, and creeks. While you're hiking the network of trails that span the park, keep a lookout for the wildlife that inhabits the area. This population includes Florida scrub-jay (which are endemic to the state), sandhill crane, Sherman’s fox squirrel, and gopher tortoise among other species. You can also bicycle the trails or take some time to enjoy fishing or hunting.Flying Eagle Preserve is a mosaic of water bodies such as small lakes, marshes, and swamps; it is bounded on the east by the Withlacoochee River and has islands of forested uplands dotted throughout the region. The Withlacoochee River's floodplain has a combination of hardwood and cypress swamps. The park has many miles of multi-use trails, but mountain bikes are required only to use trails that have been designated for them. Fishing and hunting are allowed, as is boating; you can launch your canoe, kayak, or boat at one of the many boat launches, and try fishing from one of the many bridges.Sunnyhills Restoration Area is characterized by two tracts of land and multiple levees, a system of trails granting you the opportunity to go hiking and mountain biking, and marshes that provide habitat for wading birds and waterfowl. There is an observation tower that provides you with even better views of the marsh and the shaded oak hammocks on the banks of the Ocklawaha River floodplain where you might spot sandhill cranes and American alligators. There are picnic areas and primitive camping sites that you can use if you wish and a historic farmhouse built in the 1930s you can view. The park was previously farmland before being purchased in 2008 for restoration.

Exploring The Area

Now that you've had your fill of the outdoors, it's time to head indoors to enjoy some culture and entertainment. Ocala has a museum of art, and another museum focused on the history of drag racing. The drag racing museum goes much deeper than its stated topic, including antique motor vehicles, vintage trucks, and muscle cars, jet cars, individual engines, and more. The city's downtown square has art and cultural exhibits, boutiques and salons, restaurants, a historic movie theater playing first-run movies, and other attractions. You can even get a tattoo here if you want. The city has many locally owned and operated restaurants, and prices range from inexpensive to fine dining. There are many different cuisines to choose from, and one of the venues serves French food in a romantic but subdued setting.The city of Belleview has some interesting places to get your shopping fix taken care of; one of the destinations is a large flea market with a diverse selection of items and includes a farmers market. If you're more specifically interested in art and art-related items, a local gift shop has local and commercially-made artwork, clothing, gems and minerals, and icons from a diverse array of religions. If it's time to relax and bask in the glow of the day's events, check out an older theater that offers movies at a reasonable price and has great acoustics. You also have the option of taking a charter boat tour of the area.Whatever new experiences you're looking for, you're certain to find them in Lake County and the surrounding area; camping at Lake Griffin Campground is the best way do it.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
