We departed the Rest Area on I-75 in Forsyth, Georgia at 8:30 a.m. Our destination today is the Ocean Pond Campground which is located within the Osceola National Forest. The campground is located about 20 miles east of Lake City, Florida on US-90.
We arrived at the campground at 2:30 p.m. This is a very scenic campground overlooking a lake. It has paved roads and paved parking pads which is very nice for those of us campers who like to be pampered on occasion. There are three separate sections to this campground. There are 19 sites with electric and water hookups in one section. There are several sites with water hookups, no electric, in another section and there are several primitive sites with no water or electric. We opted for one of the water only sites, since we have a generator and solar panel to create our own electricity. We were able to access the Internet at this campground tethering our Smartphone to our laptop computer.
A nice added feature of this campground is it has very nice flush toilet and shower facilities. The showers are isolated from one another with their own locking door, affording one their own individual privacy while taking a shower.
The cost for a campsite with a water hookup is $6.00 per night with our Golden Age Pass.
Our plan is to stay here four nights and depart Wednesday morning for Manatee Springs State Park, near Chiefland, Florida.
