Both beautiful and historic, and totally remodeled in 2009, Juniper Springs features a large campground plus one of the great swimming holes in the state, complete with a historic mill house.  The Juniper Creek canoe run also begins here, and is ranked as one of the best canoe runs in Central Florida.

The Juniper Springs Campground was recently featured in in USAToday “10 great  places to pitch a pup tent”

The Juniper Springs Canoe Run was featured in an article and video from the Tampa Bay Times.

Happy November! Can you believe the year is almost over! We can't wait to see all of you for Thanksgiving week! Just a few reminders: turkey fryers are not allowed. If you're using the infared kind that's ok but none with oil. We've had quite a bit of bear activity around us so please remember - unless your physically cooking and/or eating all of your food, utensils, pots, pans, coolers etc. must be put away at all times. After eating please make sure you are taking your trash to the dumpsters. It takes all of us to make this work so thanks so much for all your help! We can't do it without you! ... See MoreSee Less
