We are located north of DeLand and just south of DeLeon Springs in the bird sanctuary called “Glenwood”. We are on a gated road just east of Grand Ave. it’s a quiet*, safe, and tranquil neighborhood that is convenient to many of the area’s gems. We can provide a nice place to camp, softened well water to refill your tank (bring a jug or long hose), and 30-amp power. The closest dump station is the St John's Marina Resort (15 minutes away & $15). The site has early morning and late afternoon shade. We will provide you a gate code. No loud motorcycles or loud cars permitted; violates our deed restrictions. Suggested Local Attractions: Swimming, kayaking, and eating at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant at DeLeon Springs State Park; Mountain biking at Chuck Lennon Park; wildlife observing, birding, hiking, at Lake Woodruff NWR; St John River Eco Tours at Crow’s Bluff Marina; Bike riding at Lake Beresford Park. We are 10 minutes from downtown DeLand where there are breweries, a wine bar, live music, plenty of restaurants, art and shopping. There is also yoga & skydiving! Area activities include Juniper Springs in the Ocala Natl Forest (30 min) Blue Springs State Park (30 min), Tomoka State Park (40 min), Daytona Beach (45 min), Disney, Universal, etc. (60 min traffic depending) * The City Limits Taproom & Grill is hosting bands on Fridays & Saturdays. Even though they are 600 yards away, the music can be heard in our yard.

Location

Access Road Conditions: We have a lane that goes around the edge of the property. Because of a light pole’s location, longer RVs have to go to the end of the street, drive around the cul-de-sac, and then drive back to gain access to the lane. It is partially grass then crushed concrete. Hanging tree limbs aren’t currently an issue. I trim them back as necessary. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Plenty :-)

    Bob and his wife are so wonderful. Their home is beautiful and they have a large property that was very easy to get our rig into and setup. It is gated so we felt extra safe. They have a stunning wildlife refuge a short bike ride from their home. A must visit when you are there. Bob also pointed out some great stops and we hit them all! THANK YOU BOB! The Juniper Springs was one of the greatest kayaking trips we have taken. Just totally love this area and we are so grateful for their hospitality.
