Description Rodman Campground is located near Rodman Reservoir on the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. Silver Springs and Wild Waters water park are located close by in Silver Springs near Ocala, approximately 37 miles from the campground. Crescent Beach is approximately 45 miles away and can be reached within one hour. Kirkpatrick Dam is less than a mile west of the campground and offers a boat ramp to the Ocklawaha River, fishing piers, picnic areas and restrooms. The Florida Trail Association hiking trail and an atv trail is located one mile west of the campground. Within the campground, there is boat ramp access to Rodman Reservoir. There is a wide variety of fish species in this location. The area is popular for bass fishing. Access to the St. Johns river from Rodman Reservoir is through Buckman Lock. Rodman Campground ramp is a good double ramp with plenty of safe parking that accesses Rodman through a small dredged canal that is dry during drawdowns. Once you clear the canal it is necessary to work your way across part of the main pool to reach the dredged barge canal. This can be somewhat frustrating because the stumps require that you cross this area at idle speed. OGT has been promising a marked channel from the ramp canal to the barge canal for years, but as yet there are no markers in place. For access to most points around the main pool it is probably easier and cheaper to launch at Kenwood.
