Be yourself. Be someone else. It's no theme. It's every theme. It's Camp Run-A-Muk and it's this weekend!
If you think this wild-looking flower looks like something that would be found on Mars, you're right! The night-blooming cereus is a rare flower that can be found at Camp Mars. In fact, these plants only bloom for one night a year and some sharp-eyed campers spotted them over July 4 weekend. You can learn more about them here: https://www.desertusa.com/cactus/night-blooming-cereus.html. Thanks to Tim Becker for the great photos.
A type of cactus, night blooming cereus is rare in Florida and even a difficult find in the desert.
That's what Camp Mars is all about. Be yourself. Make new friends. Most of all, get away to a place where you can relax and have fun, with no pretense. That's Camp Mars.
There's a lot here to help you with that! Over 40 acres of some of Florida's most beautiful forest, natural stream and ponds, and grassy fields to soak up the sun.
But we haven't left out the creature comforts. Enjoy our beautiful, clothing optional pool, fun parties, dances and special events. We've added just enough of what you're used to at a resort without spoiling our natural atmosphere. This is gay Florida camping as it should be. As we like to say...RELAX, YOU'VE LANDED ON MARS

Mars is proud to announce that a new wifi system has recently been installed, providing enhanced signal through most areas of the campground. It's a great tool to keep in touch when you get away. But- please remember to be considerate of other campers: like most places, bandwidth always has limits so if you want to stream HD movies, etc., please use your own system.
What's a campground without RV hookups? We have 30 and 50 amp sites available for a couple of days to a few months or even longer.
Camp Mars is the perfect place to bring your group, club, or posse. Call us and we'll talk about putting together special arrangements that will make your organization's getaway one you'll never forget.
You may have noticed some wooden boxes placed up on poles and tress around Mars. These are new homes for some of the most effective anti-mosquito weapons known to man: bats.
These airborne mammals can eat up to 1000 mosquitos an hour so you gotta love them in spite of some misconceptions people have. Want to learn more? Visit this site: http://www.batrescue.org/batfacts/batfacts.html
Mars has had a great winter with lots of new campers, both new perms and short-term people, so we know summer's going to be a blast. Pro tip: Book those holiday weekends soon!
