Where are we going today?
Yellow Jacket RV Resort is a family friendly - and very water orientated - RV resort in Florida!
The resort itself if bordered by the Suwannee river, and surrounded by thousands of amazing acres of wildlife refuge. Nature at it's finest for your family experience away together!
The resort offers waterfront sites, as well as cottage if you didn't want to bring your own "home"!.
All of the river-front TV sites have amazing views of the river, and all of the sites at Yellow Jacket has full hookups, 30/50 amps, as well as cable TV and wifi (not that you will be spending much time on your computers when you see the view!)
For those families who like to take it back to basics, they have rustic and modern tent sites for you too.
Kids who love nature will really be in their element here. There is over 1300 feet of direct access river frontage (how amazing is that!?) where you can take out a boat (you can rent them from the lovely staff!), or even bring your own! There is a launch ramp and docks just for you!
Spend some time fishing, or just stroll around the ponds. There is even a heated pool and spa that you can enjoy under the sun! How cool is that!?
The surrounding area is perfect for those active families to get out and enjoy hiking the nature trails. For the more adventurous, there are even great scuba diving and snorkelling spots just outside of the town.
An amazing family campground for families who love camping in nature!

We (husband, me & 3 dogs) loved this place. Absolutely one of the nicest we have been. The view from the river sites are awesome. Park is well kept and very clean and neat. Large sites, really well maintained, with all hookups at shoulder height --no getting on your knees to hook up! A little pricey but we felt the amenities were worth the cost. Staff very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended if you like nature and beautiful, serene scenery.

We love this campground. Although, it is a bit out of the way, it is worth the trip. The campsites are a nice size - some right on the Suwannee River. If you are travelling with other campers, the even have buddy sites. If you own a boat, bring it. The resort has a boat launch and docks or you can rent one of their pontoon boats.
The laundry facility is large and clean, as is the pool area, showers and clubhouse. Quiet at night and a good price. We camped in at motorhome with tow dolly. Our site was a pull thru and about 70' long.
