Ross Prairie Preserve State Park

RossPrairieCampground (53)This small campground is part of the Cross Florida Greenways and Trails Office and managed by them along with the other campsites Santos and Rodman. It sits next to the Ross Prairie State Forest and has lots of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. It does have Great cell phone and internet reception for Virgin Mobile users. But there is nothing to do here except to walk, bike or ride a horse on the trails. Great bathhouse on the hill in the center of the park. The maintenance supervisor fixed the hot water while we were there and added new clothing hooks. Cleanest bathhouse we have seen so far even the screens on the covered windows were clean.

This place has a dual dump station with potable water as well as non-potable water so you can fill up your fresh water tanks while you are there, should you desire it. They also allow non-campers to use their dumping facilities for only $5. You just need to go to the office and pay the fees or if no one is available just place the money in the envelopes and into the collection pipe. Being us we had to dump every two days. We noticed that there was a leak in the water pipe and the hose for rinsing off your sewer outflow pipe after dumping could use replacement. This place has “hard water” so you may want to consider getting one of those water filter systems that attaches to your hose.

***When attempting to make a reservation for this campground you will need to leave off the length of your vehicle. For some reason whoever set it up did not include length as a search parameter. So, you will get nothing is available, which more than likely is not true, or it will not show up as an option if you are searching by all campgrounds available on certain dates.***
