You will need to reserve with the owner of the farm: Lillian Baner 352-628-9816. They have full hookups but I reserved a primitive area to keep costs down. We will be able to keep our horses with our trailers unless you want to keep them in a stall or separate pasture. There is a fee for everything. As I asked for, the camping will be $11 per night & $10 per horses at your rig. They have a shower house for us to use. Please contact Lillian for directions or more info. I will email directions out also so check your email.
