Salt Springs Campground
Ocala National Forest
Salt Springs, Florida
We departed the 24-hour Walmart at 3535 Apalachee Parkway in Tallahassee, Florida at 8:10 a.m. under a sunny sky with the temperature in the low sixties. This is our travel day to somewhere east in northern Florida. We have a few places in mind on where we will stay, but we will make that decision based upon the campsites available and other factors we consider important when we select a campground.
We arrived at the Ocean Pond Campground in the Osceola National Forest near Lake City, Florida at 10:30 a.m. All of the electric and water hookup sites were occupied. There were some water only hookup sites available, but on this leg of our trip we wanted electric and water hookups. So… back on the road to find another campground.
We arrived at the Salt Springs Campground in the Ocala National Forest in Salt Springs, Florida at 1:10 p.m. This is a beautiful campground with full hookups (electric, water and sewer). There were plenty of sites available, so we chose site #70 (a nice shady spot) and settled in for a seven-day stay. Maybe longer!
Total miles traveled today: 217
Full Hookup Campsites: $29.00 ($18.00 with Golden Age Pass)
Primitive Campsites: $20.00 ($10.00 with Golden Age Pass)
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
