Campgrounds Chiefland, Florida – Strawberry Fields
Opened in 2019, Strawberry Fields is still expanding its number of sites and amenities. It currently offers almost 200 full-service pull-through sites (with more being plotted) with water, electricity, and sewage service. All present sites are paved and spot-on level; all roads throughout the campground are paved. There is a generous grassy segment separating each RV site. The campground is restricted to fully self-sufficient Rvs (no tents or popup tent trailers nor camper vans without full facilities). While not restricted to adults-only, it provides no play facilities oriented to children.
While rigs must have their own bathrooms, the park has a modern bath house with 8 nicely appointed individual bathroom suites . . . each one with a vanity-sink, lavatory, and shower. Access to each unit is via a key pad and is cleaned daily.
There also is a large air-conditioned laundry facility with six washers and dryers, sturdy tables for folding clothes, and seating. Outside are a few benches for those who want to sit outside while waiting for their machines to do their job.
Recently added is a new game room building with a nicely stocked library of books and movie dvds, a billard room with 4 pool tables, and a crafts room.
Other Strawberry Fields amenities include an open air covered pavilion with picnic tables, a shuffleboard layout, and a barbecue fire pit. The park offers free wi-fi and while not super-fast is probably a cut-above the average campground wi-fi service. They don’t offer cable, however we found Chiefland antenna TV service was quite good – – – all the national channels, npr channels, a few local special channels, more than 20 options.
Located on the edge of the city surrounded by farmland, the Strawberry Fields Campground has a rural peacefulness, yet it is within walking distance of several important services: an ACE hardware store, a Save-A-Lot grocery store, the Garden Patch Cafe, and Ralph’s Burger House. Wilson Gas offering RV propane fillup is less than a mile away. The North Coast Bike Trail is nearby and we have found that the sidewalks and quiet streets provide safe biking from the campground to the bike trail. The Walmart SuperCenter is about a 2 mile drive.
Two other aspects we like. It is family run – Tim and Ana West. We also think the price is fair for the quality of the facility and its amenities. 2021 rates were $35 a day; $200 a week.
