Description

Lush Central Florida unspoiled countryside surrounds you when you stop at Ben's Hitching Post Campground, a premier senior RV park in beautiful Silver Springs, Florida. This full-service park sits in the heart of the Ocala National Forest, within close proximity to Silver Springs Nature's Theme Park, famous for its crystal waters and glass bottom boat tours. Located east of I-75 near Ocala, the easy to find campground is nestled just off of Interstate 40 and offers guests an easy and convenient online reservations system.

Able to accommodate most modern RVs, the campground features a lovely swimming pool, spa, rec room and shuffleboard courts. Hiking through the adjacent woods affords great views for bird watchers, and canoeing, boating and exploring the sparkling natural springs are also favorite pastimes for Ben's Hitching Post campers. Peace and quiet abound in this adults only park, and clubs and rallies are welcome, and will have use of the camp's meeting room if needed.

Ben's Hitching Post, ideally located in the middle of Florida's tourism corridor, is the perfect base camp for your Florida vacation. The Florida Horse Park, Silver Springs nature park and the Appleton Museum are just a short drive from the RV park, with Disney World, Busch Gardens, the Daytona International Speedway and the University of Florida Gainesville campus easily accessible via I-75. Whether it is a relaxing vacation spot you desire, a central location from which to tour Florida, or a little bit of both, Ben's Hitching Post Campground will cater to all of your RV-ing needs.

This is a nice clean little park, you don't fell like your just another space number. The manager is great, very friendlyand keep the rif raf out. Ok the park is not Taj Mahal, but again your not paying the high resort rate either. Winter rate are around $300 bucks Per month. The park a cross the street was around $500, I didn't have a gym, but I saved a few bucks in a neat and clean park. It Was a win.

Ok yes this is a small RV Campground, however very clean and the Hoist Mike is a super friendly person. I'm not sure what the other reviews where about but they where completely wrong about this park. Quite, Quite, Quite. Only about 7 miles from Silver Spring and Ocala, a nice little drive. Not a lot of amenities, but then again if one doesn't need the extra amenities then you wont have to pay for something your not going to use. I looked around the whole area and found this park to have the BEST rate anywhere. I mean I went across the street and there rates started around $500 per month, it was a nice park because it did have all the amenities. Then I went down a old dirt road to another RV park, it was about 20% higher in price and had even less amenities. Bens is a clean simple little park.
