Live Oak Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destinations in Freeport, Florida, has come a long way from its beginnings as McDaniel’s Fish Camp.
But now, the stills have been exchanged for a saltwater pool, and those who gather don’t have to endure the elements because Live Oak Landing has a heated and cooled gathering place, The Walton Sun reports.
“We turned it into a 21st Century RV resort,” said Sorrell of the RVC resort, which hosted its first guest in November 2010.
The resort also added 39 RV sites in preparation for the summer travel season.
Though it has changed from its rustic beginnings, the resort hasn’t lost its charm.
With the overhanging oaks and situation on Freeport’s Black Creek, Live Oak Landing is the picture of tranquility.
“There’s nothing but peace and quiet,” Sorrell said, relaying one visitor’s remarks.
But here quiet is not synonymous with dull.
Amenities offered at the 74-acre retreat range from a dog park to nature walks to the newest addition, a screened-in saline pool, reports The Walton Sun.
Avid anglers will be happy to know, local veteran and founder of Wounded Warrior Fishing Mark McDuffie is on-site to offer fishing charters. With the resort just 1.8 miles from the mouth of the bay, fishermen and women can catch an abundance of saltwater and freshwater fish.
With such offerings, the resort draws visitors from as far as Canada and the northwest, but Sorrell says he is beginning to see more and more visitors come from Northwest Florida.
“As the price of fuel goes up, people ask themselves ‘Where can we go to have fun nearby?’ ” said Sorrell.
Nine one-bedroom mini-cottages are available per night at $89.99 and by the week at $539.94. One-bedroom cottages with loft spaces are $129.99 per night and $779.94 per week.
