Was a great place to visit. The people are friendly and the facility was more than adequate. There are fun events happening most days and plenty to do. The pool is great and is the ONLY place that clothing is NOT allowed. If you enjoy a clothing optional adult only camping experience, in a judgement free zone, definitely give Cherry Lane a try. You wont be dissapointed. Cant wait to go back soon!

We had such a nice stay at Forest hills club campground. My boyfriend and our 2 year old enjoyed the club house, colored with chalk, took a hike, went in the hot tub and i did a cold plunge in the pool bc the heater was out. The salt water pool was clean and refreshing. If your escaping the heat these wooded campsites are perfect. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making our escape from the Florida heat a success! We will be back and recommend a stay here.
