Tillis Hill Campground–Withlacoochee State Forest

Oak at sunset 2We selected this site because of it is within hiking distance of a series of caves that we wanted to visit.  Like Holder Mine, this campsite is run by the forestry service, and there is a host site in the campground. 

The campground is kept clean, and everything is in good shape… The showers have plenty of water too probably  better water pressure than most houses; they are like standing under a waterfall.  The campground has stalls and a corral to support equestrian campers, and each site is paved and large enough to hold even the biggest RVs.  Some might be bothered that the sites aren’t very level, but that wasn’t a problem for us.

Wild turkeysThe area around the campground is beautiful – our first evening there was spent taking photos around the perimeter.  We saw wild turkeys on the edge of the campground, and a lot of wildlife while hiking the trails.

We arrived on a Friday morning, and left the following Sunday morning.  While we were there, we explored two trails – each of which was easily within walking distance of the campsite.
