Florida Sand Music Ranch

Florida Sand Music Ranch (formerly Sertoma Youth Ranch) is an 80 acre, wooded retreat located between Brooksville and Dade City, Florida. Experience camping like in the old days, but with the convenience of hot showers and indoor facilities. Set up your tent in our primitive area or bring a camper and hook up with water and electric service. We also have dump station (fee) for your convenience. Campfires are allowed in proper receptacles. We welcome well behaved, domestic pets on a leash.

We encourage a family friendly environment in an outdoor setting.  Several music festivals are held at “The Ranch” each year. Check out the calendar to see what is happening. There are also many non-music get togethers.  Enjoy nature; enjoy the peace of the campground and friendship of other campers.  There are many opportunities to volunteer  - check out our Get Involved page.
