Description

We are in the woods but only 5 miles from town. We are the last house on the road. If you run off the black top you have missed our drive way. It is very quiet and peaceful here. It is our little piece of heaven. When you drive through the gate the world fades away. You can hear lots of birds. We see wildlife. (Gopher Tortoises, raccoons, deer, birds, a couple stray cats, opossums and polecats.) We have 2 beloved indoor/outdoor cats. I work mostly from home because I am YouTuber. I teach how to make rag rugs.

House Rules

*When requesting to reserve your spot please let me know if you need 30 amp or is 15 okay or no electric so I can accommodate other requests as their come in. We stay pretty busy.
*Only 1 small mild mannered dog (under 25 lbs.) on leash and please pick up after your dog. We have 2 indoor/outdoor cats.
*No fires
*No drugs
*Please be respectful of all
*Please leave things like you found it
*Please turn off your A/C when you leave the property
*We have a 30 amp plug and a 15 plug in. We can accommodate more rigs but they will not be able to be plugged in to power.

Access Road Conditions

Nice paved road access we have a chain link fence and gate you need to be able to back in. Our drive is about 200 ft long and is shell rock. If you have a tt or large motorhome you will need to back in through the gate about 150 feet. Some of the yard is a bit soft under the grass because it is sand. We don't ever have a problem but be aware of the situation and be thoughtful. Do not try to circle the block or come in on another road other than Gardenia AVE. because they are soft sand or turn to soft sand.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

There is enough room to leave your tow vehicle hooked up or park it somewhere else on the property.

Wonderful stay!

Great couple! We had a chance to sit an chat for a couple of hours. They are both a wealth of knowledge about Florida and camping and all kinds of things. We learned a lot, and loved our visit.
Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Such a blessing to us

We are so so grateful for this couple and their generosity. We are a Fulltime traveling family with kids and had a odd hipcamp experience where a host wasn’t welcoming campers after reserving. So last minute we were without a place to stay for the night and with Florida in peak season there was no site to be found. We are beyond grateful at their speedy response to our last minute request and their willingness to welcome us into their beautiful property. It was a long day traveling and it was so nice to have a safe and quiet place to rest for the night. My only regret is not being able to stay more and get to know this lovely couple. They truly helped our journey more than they know.

a night in the Scrub

Erin and Lyle are the greatest of hosts. Their directions were correct right down to the T, site next to their home was marked with water supply laid out and electric ready, and when they came back from helping out a fellow traveler out who were making The Great Loop in their boat with a hospital run it was like we were all long lost friends. Would certainly enjoy seeing them again. Isn't Boondockers Welcome great.

Read the Directions!

Loved our stay at Florida Scrub, even though it started with adventure. My bad I didn't read the 'how to get there' instructions. Following the GPS lady's instuctions instead, drove right past the driveway and out into the sand where we promptly got our rig stuck (many thanks to Artistic Towing for pulling us out!)

Once out of the sand and situated, our hosts were wonderful and the property was quiet, clean and peaceful. Had a great evening and great experience with our hosts. Would love to come back again, Thank you!

Great location and hosts

Safe and quiet location close to all conveniences. Hosts were gracious and shared info on local attractions which included the local State Park that is, for sure, a must visit, especially the Swamp Walk. Would stay here again without hesitation. The best of the best.

Absolute Best

A peaceful location.....but the best part was the helpful host. He made sure we were parked and comfortable. He shared information and made us feel very welcomed.
A family emergency changed our plans. We were welcomed another night and they offered support on many levels. We are thankful our paths crossed.

Great Stay!

The hosts were very nice and accommodating and helpful with good suggestions of things to do and places to eat in the area.

My Boondocking spot was great, plenty of sun for my solar, and level, easy in and out. Peaceful and quiet nights sleep.
Hickory hammock state park is very nearby and has really cool things to see and hiking and biking trails plus a CCC museum.

I got the oil changed in my truck at a Nissan dealer which was only about 10 minutes away.
The old part of downtown Sebring is laid out pretty cool around a circle and has some interesting history and shops and stores to see.

I consistently had 2 or 3 bars of Verizon.

If it’s available I would definitely recommend staying here!

Terrific hosts

Had a great stay with FloridaScrub. The hosts were friendly and very interesting people. Their property is close to town but still in a quiet rural area. They shared water and power hookups with us which was super convenient. Hope to meet these generous folks again:)

Very gracious hosts

I’ve stayed at 5 different spots during this trip and this spot is my favorite! It’s semi-secluded, quiet and dark at night. The city is about 3 miles away and a great park is around 5 miles. I’m enjoying it so much that I’m staying an extra night. On top of that, my hosts were the most hospitable couple I’ve ever met. I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful experience!

This is a great quiet spot, and what a lovely couple. We had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours chatting with them, and it was a really nice experience. They are very communicative and responsive with messages and helpful with recommendations for the area. High recommendation.

Wonderful place to stay

We stayed here while visiting family in Sebring. We did not spend a lot of time there as we spent a lot of time with family. Did get to chat with Erin and share a few experiences. This is a beautiful, quiet space. Would love to return and relax here. Thanks Erin🤗

Fabulous place to stay

Wonderful hosts who gave us lots of great information. If you come here I would highly recommend seeing Highlands Hammock State Park (absolutely beautiful) and taking a bike ride around Jackson Lake.
