Default Camping near Gainesville, FL?

Anyone know of any decent RV parks or camp sites near North Gainesville, FL?

We are planning a stop there on the way back from Pine Mountain to attend a Bat Festival at Lubee and just wondered if there was any place to stay or to avoid in the area.

Don't forget the new Bass Pro Shop on I-75 at the Archer Rd exit (#384). Check to be sure you can boondock there though.

i have not been that close to town on Archer road since they started that mess,err,project.
One thing they need to build in that area is a police station,to deal with all of the traffic accidents on Archer road.
When i was a kid,there was an airport where walmart and all of that is,a man named Charlie Crown used to re fabric piper cubs at his house,which was about a half mile west of 75,
he had a 58 ford truck with a V mount on the tail gate,he would drive down to the airport,drop the tail of a cub into the V and drive it down Archer road to his shop.
He would re fabric the plane,took he wings off and all that stuff,redope it and put it all back together and then using Archer road as a runway he would fly the plane back to the airport.
Try that today with a million cars per hour driving by...

Hey Randy, do you happen to know a Gabe and Anne Green in Archer? I know how small towns can be, not sure if you happened across them.

I am pretty sure they have lived there that long, and the family as a whole for a bit longer. Was just curious, they are relatives by way of my moms side of the family. Allison and Bonita Green would be their parents, lived there since the 30s. I know Gabe and Anne live right in Archer.

I;m sure i have run into them,but my world was kinda small there,the auto parts store and the grocery store was where i went,thats about it.
I lived out of town,not right in archer.
Archer is so small they don't have a town drunk,they take turns..
