This stunning lakefront glamping site can be found in the Fort McCoy/Orange Springs area of Florida, adjacent to the Ocala National Forest and the Ocklawaha River. Featuring gorgeous water views, a dock, and over 300 feet of shoreline, this property offers guests a peaceful getaway in the Florida sunshine. This wonderful lakefront cottage sits in the lake region that is equal distance to Ocala, Gainesville, and Palatka, Florida. It is ideal for guests who want a myriad of options and for folks who want to experience natural Florida: its woods, rivers, and abundant natural springs. Orange Springs is less than an hour's drive from Daytona Beach, Crescent Beach and St. Augustine. Day trips to the beach are quite easy and a delight without much coastal traffic. It is also about two hours from Disney, yet a world apart.

The small lake is ideal for swimming, canoeing, boating, fishing, kayaking, and more. Whether guests are seeking a relaxing vacation away from the cold north in the winter, or to enjoy the sunny outdoors the rest of the year, this Floridian offers it all. Ocala is horse country and is equal training facilities and horse farms in Lexington, Kentucky. Gainesville is home to the University of Florida. Palatka sits on the St John's River and is just a 20-minute hop to the beaches.
