We are on two acres in the Ocala National Forest 🌳. We have a small lake, Lake O’Nello, adjacent to our back yard. The lake is great for fishing, kayaking, and relaxing. The RV pad is separated from the residence, (adjacent to a small shed). There is a covered area that may be used if cover is needed, (such as rainy conditions). We are family and pet friendly!
After 1 night free stay, you may ask to stay longer if you wish at a daily rate of $30. (No additional charge for electric at this daily rate.)
Just common courtesy please. Due to wildlife in the area, please refrain from leaving garbage outside.
Access road is compact semi-improved road, (compacted mixture). It is only approximately 300’ off of SR40, a paved road.
There is a 45’ concrete pad with a 60’+ blacktop driveway.
We also travel a bit, but just drop us a request and if we are home, and the spot is open, it’s all yours to enjoy!
The are many springs, rivers, and lakes in the area to explore and enjoy! There are hiking trails as well as OHV trails throughout the Ocala National Forest. If viewing wildlife and birds are enjoyable for you, you’ve come to the right place!

Delightful host, secluded spot filled with wildlife, trees and a pond.
What a lovely place to stay! Peaceful, quiet with lots of nature to enjoy. Numerous beautiful springs surround the property. Many small, wonderful restaurants. There is a tiny, sweet VFW within 15 miles for those Boondocking vets. Thanks so much to these wonderful hosts. Trucker 105 and Vic
We had the best time on this peaceful and beautiful property! Thank you so, so much, Keith and Michele! We hope to return. THANK YOU!
Beautiful paved spot right next to a lovely pond. We took our pups for a walk around the neighborhood and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Thank you Lake O’Nello!
The hosts are very nice and hospitality, we enjoyed their company. The location was beautiful and quiet. Due to their extensive experience at the RV lifestyle, they had some great advice for us newbies.
I have to say a great family and great place we thank them so much for there hospitality an spot that was perfect for us. Hope they can visit us sometime. Easy back in an exit. Thanks again!!!
Stayed here for two nights. By far one of the nicest places we have stayed so far. A lovely, rural lakeside setting. Our hosts were very helpful and hospitable. They suggested that we take the glass bottom boat tour at Silver Springs State Park. We would love to stay here again.
A great little spot, and the hosts were awesome. A nice concrete and level pad, great View of the lake and a good area to walk the dog.
Beautiful property and the nicest family! An actual back in RV pad with W/E for a small fee, under shady oak trees.
On our second stay wandering around Florida our family had another pleasant stop at Relaxing Lake O’Nello and got to see more wildlife and the little ones got to play on the trampoline. Great location and easy access to I75.
The RV pad is very large and spacious. You back right up to O’Nello Lake. Barred Owls just had babies in the trees above our camper. We got to see and HEAR (lol) the mating dance of the Sandhill Cranes. The lake is just beautiful! So serene! I would actually love to live here! The family is great! Very inviting and helpful. We ended up staying 3 nights we liked it so much. Silver Springs SUP paddle boarding is a MUST! Be careful of gators. I paddled right up on a 10 footer, but well worth it seeing the clear blue water.
We had a wonderful stay at Relaxing Lak Onello. Even though we had a downpour our site remained dry and had an easy in and out with our 42 ft 5th wheel. Great Hosts!!!
What a great little escape. Host has a concrete pad with water and elec for your rig. Overlooks the water. We would def. stay again.
We had a relaxing and bonding stay at Relaxing Lake O’Nello with this family as a family of four ourselves and retired military we bonded on many levels. The location was on our route and right down the street from a family owned New England seafood restaurant and a ice cream parlor next door,what more can you ask for with two toddlers ?They recommended Silver Spring State park down the street that we would highly recommend for young children and we went back with our family SUP board. Thanks for the Audubon App recommendation and giving our children a opportunity to see Sandhills Cranes up close and personal. A highly recommended stay.
We enjoyed our stay. Hosts were great. Glad to have electric as we needed AC
We were able to stay 5 nights and it was great! We fished and relaxed right on the small lake in the back of the house, and we visited some of the other area lakes too! Friendly and accommodating family; always had tips for us and were very helpful. We would surely return.
