Great park but no cell or TV service

This is a very nice campground. But if you want to stay in touch with your friends you better take them with you. I asked the ranger why there was no cell service and she said that is why they chose to live there. It was nice and quiet. Plus it was about an hour drive back into Ocala to shop. There are a couple of mom and pop stores for the necessities.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
