We departed the Alexander Springs Campground in the Ocala National Forest at 11:40 a.m. today. Our destination is a return visit to the Ocean Pond Campground in the Osceola National Forest near Lake City, Florida.
We arrived at Ocean Pond at 6:15 p.m. and were fortunate to get the last campsite available in the electric and water hookup section of the campground. We plan to spend 10 nights here before we depart for a campground close to Charleston, South Carolina.
The Ocean Pond Campground is a very scenic area 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 an electric and water hookup is $12.00 per night with our Golden Age Passport.
