What is special about Diamond Oaks Farm?   Our riding experiences are for kids down to age 2 as well as adults, and we offer free-rein guided horseback riding experiences with your private group, rustic to luxury lodging, pasture RV rentals, RV hookups, and horse boarding - the best Ocala Florida ranch get-away and family retreat!  This is also a ranch where you can bring your own horse, and stay on property in your own RV if you wish.

What stay options are there?  You can enjoy living in the historic home for 1-6 guests or romantic hotel room suite for 1-4 guests, an RV camper rental for up to 5 guests, or at the RV hookup campsite. 

What is there to do nearby?   We are only 5 minutes from Silver Springs for the glass bottom boat ride, and great horseback riding trails.  There is a nearby children's playground, we are only 20 minutes from downtown dining, and there is gorgeous horse country surrounding us to enjoy on foot, horse or bike.  Santos Mountain biking park is 30 minutes from us, and you can hike, bike or horseback ride the land bridge near there.
