Nature’s Coast RV Resort is nestled comfortably in the charm of Old Florida, just a few short minutes to the emerald Gulf of Mexico and the tannin-colored waters of the Steinhatchee River. Located in beautiful, pristine and unspoiled Steinhatchee/Jena, Florida, a visit to Nature’s Coast RV Resort will put you in the middle of a string of counties studded with emerald-like gulf waters, deep springs and rivers that stretch along the Florida’s Big Bend coastline.

Enjoy hiking, cycling, fishing, birding, camping, and remember to bring your picnic basket. For birding fans, be sure to check out the West Florida Section of the Great Florida Birding Trail.

Whether you choose to cast from a dock or venture into the Gulf for inshore, offshore or fly fishing, anglers are hooked on Steinhatchee. Many local marinas rent skiff and pontoon boats, or they can arrange daily charters for saltwater fishing. Popular catches include trout, red fish, snapper, cobia and grouper.

For an unforgettable boating experience, try your hand at scalloping from July 1 through September 10. Steinhatchee is known as the “Scalloping Capital of Florida” and boasts the most abundant supply of sea scallops in the state. Due to the popularity of scalloping, reservations should be made well in advance for both accommodations and guides, if needed. Nature’s Coast RV Resort can “hook” you up with a local marina or fishing captain. And when you want water sports, visit the Gulf where canoeing, kayaking and scuba diving are popular pastimes. Canoeing and Kayaking enthusiasts can find an excellent resource in the Canoe and Kayak North Florida website.

If it is wildlife you seek, the West Indian manatee, Florida black bear, bald eagle, Florida sand hill crane, red cockaded woodpecker, least tern, gopher tortoise, Florida panther and many other mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians are some of the endangered species that call the Nature Coast home.

From the famous Suwannee to the Steinhatchee River with the unique Dixie Mainline Trail, tidal flats, and coastal marshes, Taylor and Dixie Counties are along Florida’s upper Nature Coast, flooded with fun in Florida’s Pure Water Wilderness.
