Steps away from kayaking, camping, trail-walking fishing and more…if you’ve realized you want a weekend get-a-way with a built-in adventure pack then no look no further. Corner lot that’s almost three-quarters of an acre, all high and dry, and on a paved road, this home is technically tucked away off the beaten path but you wont feel isolated. Across the street from Hog Island campground entry, which is located within the Croom Tract of the Withlacoochee State Forest in Sumter County. On the bank of the Withlacoochee River, this campground is a peaceful, paddlers paradise. Other recreational activities include: fishing, wildlife viewing, and hiking. The Withlacoochee River, Little Withlacoochee River, and Jumper Creek have all been designated as Outstanding Florida Waters, and each meanders through this forest which spans across 5 counties and exceeds 165,000 acres. Withlacoochee is a Native American word meaning "crooked river". This accurately describes the Withlacoochee River as it makes its 70-mile journey from the Green Swamp, in northern Polk County, to the Gulf of Mexico at Yankeetown. Complementing the natural water features are the open pine sand hills, dense woodlands, and canopied roads and trails. Tree species found on the forest include slash pine, longleaf pine, pond and bald cypress, maple, southern magnolia, hickory, and various species of oak. There is also an abundance of colorful wildflowers during the Autumn, including goldenrod, thistle, and blazing star. These natural features create excellent habitat for bald eagles, fox squirrels, gopher tortoise, white-tail deer, and turkeys, to name a few. the Withlacoochee State Forest was ranked #1 on the World Wildlife Fund's "10 Coolest Places You've Never Seen in North America". Facilities include many miles of trails for hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and paddling. Seasonal hunting is available in most of the forest, and fish are plentiful in the many lakes and flowing waterways. Full-facility, primitive, and group camping are available at numerous locations. Many day-use facilities are available on Withlacoochee State Forest for picnicking and wildlife viewing. Non-electric campsites with water at each site and a bathhouse. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring with grate and/or a grill.
Maximum of 1 RV and 1 tent or 2 tents per site. Day Use Area has picnic tables and grills.
Access to fishing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming in the Withlacoochee River from campground.
As you can tell we love our campground and what it offers for nature enthusiasts.
The home was originally built in 2002, and sits at a comfortable 1,456 sqft of living space. There is plenty of outdoor space to add a chicken coop, garage or shop or maybe even a screened gazebo for enjoying the evenings in Florida. Priced to sell at 129,900 we are probably at the end of the technical useful life of our roof and have priced it to leave room for adjustment. If you are looking to never get quarantined inside again, or have a passion for the great outdoors but don’t want to break the bank then look no further. By appointment only but very easy to show.
