One of the most reasonably price camps that's truly a camp. Located at the scenic O'Leno State Park just outside of High Springs, Florida. Nice shade, and lots of wildlife. The facilities are basic, and there's a public campground right there to accomodate RV's and tenters if you choose to not stay in the cabins provided in the group area. Right outside of town for conveniences. Just don't swim with the alligators! Top shelf instructors. Food is good. Jamming during off hours if desired. Cabins have electric for recharging cell phones, which is convenient. Instruction for both clawhammer and bluegrass styles by top rate instructors. Worth the trip. http://www.suwanneebanjocamp.com/

2013: Just made my third trip there. A nice bunch of folks. Will return again. I go about every 2nd or 3rd year, and always pick up something useful.
