With beautiful accommodations and a lot of adventure to be had – we’re sharing tips from the Hambrick Family to make the most out of your stay!

Glamping Tents

Here’s what the Hambrick Family had to say about their glamping experience, “There are 3 tents in their own little section at Moonshine Acres away from the RVs. For those on the bougie side like me, don’t worry, they’re equipped with both A/C and heat so whether you visit in the summer or winter you’ll be able to regulate the temperature. Our premium tent came with a Queen sized bed, twin bunk beds, and a futon couch.” 

RV Sites

What the Hambrick Family Recommends Doing at the Campground:

Spend Family Time in the Game Room: “We were able to avoid electronics and just play classic games with each other, utilizing the game room at Moonshine Acres RV Park. They had a jukebox, ping pong table, pool table, checkers, connect four, classic arcade games like Mrs. Pac Man, and more.”

Perfect Your Grill Master Skills: “By the playground, there is a grill and picnic tables where we could make dinner while watching our daughters play and burn off some energy, simple things, but things we sometimes seem too busy to do at home when we’re on our regular schedule.”

Relax at the Campfire: “In front of our tent there was a community fire pit which we sat by each night, speaking with our neighbors and roasting marshmallows to make s’mores.”

Disconnect: “At home, we’re always on the go and even when we’re in the house between all the electronics and apps there are a lot of distractions. Visiting Moonshine Acres gave us the opportunity to truly relax and slow down.”

Where The Hambrick Family Recommends Visiting Nearby:

Ichetucknee Springs State Park: “This destination offers hiking, tubing, kayaking, swimming, and diving. The water is crystal clear and roughly 72 degrees year-round. I really enjoyed checking out the Head Spring (swimming only), which is most easily accessible via the north entrance to the park.”

Ginnie Springs: “The spring is gorgeous and only 20 minutes from where we stayed at Moonshine Acres RV Park. While called Ginnie Springs it’s actually made up of 7 springs along the Santa Fe River, one of them called Ginnie.”

Gilchrist Blue Springs: “A quick 20-minute drive from Fort White is Gilchrist Blue Springs. There are five springs in the park with the main one being Blue Spring and two other swimming springs here, Johnson Spring and Naked Spring.”

Insider Tip from The Hambrick Family: 

“You won’t find any resorts or 5-star chain hotels in Fort White but that doesn’t mean there aren’t nice places to stay. By searching Campspot we found these amazing glamping tents at Moonshine Acres RV Park and knew we had to book!”
