(Jasper, Florida, US)
Ellie Ray’s River Landing Campground offers a country setting in north Florida. Located directly on the Santa Fe River, the campground offers canoe rentals for those who wish to brave the currents.
Watch out during the rainy season, as the river can become too high for inexperienced canoers to traverse the river safely!
There are several springs within driving distance and boating distance. Small towns in the area offer an array of historic sites and quaint places to visit.
Ellie Ray’s attempts to cater to everyone by accepting RVs and tents, where campfires are allowed, on their 99 lots, each with 30 and 50 amp breakers and full hook up facilities. Hot showers, ice machines, and a laundry room are on site, as well as a clubhouse for parties, tables for picnics, and horseshoes and volleyball for games.
Pets are allowed, provided they are on leashes. Nearby areas offer nature and hiking trails, and swimming can be done either in the Santa Fe River or the pool located at the campground. Fishing is a must if you have the equipment with you.
For those savvy travelers, free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the campground. Find out more information by calling 386-935-4190, as Ellie Ray’s doesn’t have a dedicated website.
