Entrance Sign

River Run Campground

2739 US Highway 27

Branford, FL 32008

Phone: 386-935-6553

Web: None; there was a Facebook page but no web site. The web site identified on RV Parky does not take you to any campground.

Rates: I only saw a $20 per night rate somewhere (I think on the Facebook page), but I’m not sure if that is correct. You will have to call the office for the rate.

Lots: Since there is no website there is no lot map. The lot is set up in five or six rows of pull through sites and back-in on the ends (kind of like a parking lot). There are mature trees that provide ample shade. All lots are dirt or packed sand based.

Amenities: Water – Yes, Electric – Yes, Sewer – Yes, TV – looks like satellite at every site, Internet – Not sure.

Other Conveniences: Propane, Not sure about showers

Other Inconveniences: No Laundry, No Dog Walk

Positives: The park is near the Ichetucknee River and ample Canoe and Tube rental places.

Negatives: I arrived at the park about 2:00 PM on a Monday afternoon. I went to the front office to find it locked and a note on the door that said the manager was assisting folks in the park. As we drove around the park, I never saw anyone that looked like they were helping anyone. I could be wrong, but it just looked like the office had been abandoned. Next, I reviewed the Facebook page and saw three complaints about the park. I also noticed a reply from someone seemingly in authority at the park. The reply was not conciliatory or helpful. The reply in each of the three cases was to argue with the complaining party. I would be extremely cautious about management at this park.
