About Camp Declan
My names is Declan but my friends call me Deck. • Florida native and professional with career of 25 years in economic development and real estate. There is little I enjoy more than the groundedness I feel when at Camp. Consequently, I'm trying to see if VRBO will help me share "Camp joy" with other down-to-earth nature lovers.
Camp Declan purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Camp Declan chose Interlachen
• The spirit of Camp Declan is to disconnect from the pressure of modern life and re-connect with self, friends, family, fresh air and authentic Florida nature. This vacation rental is ideal for professionals (doctors, lawyers, etc.) who want to relax out of reach by the public.
What makes this Cabin unique
• Persistent breeze off the lake • Watching a thunderstorm from the comfort of the swinging bed(s) • Observing the wildlife teeming in the forest

Beautiful Lake and lots to do outside !
We went to camp Declan for a church Kids Summer Camp event and the lake was a huge hit with all the kids! There was plenty of space for all 12 kids and 6 adults to sleep-in. The house was also well stocked with dishes and kitchen wear material. The only downside, and the reasons I did not give it 5 Stars, was the bathrooms and the cleanliness. The bathroom in the bunkhouse did not lock at all, and we had 12 kids sleeping in there with one adult. The bathroom in the main-house had a hook on the door to close the bathroom and definitely lacked the privacy one would require of a restroom. The kitchen was a little cluttered with lots of kitchen and non kitchen stuff as well as cobwebs and dust. I think if this place had a thorough cleaning it would be golden ! Overall, we loved the campy feeling and the beautiful lake of Camp Declan. The owner Declan was very professional and always quick to respond for all of our needs and we really appreciated that !
Wow - What a Fun Place!
This place absolutely rocks! First and foremost, what you notice is the peace and quiet on the property that is accompanied by a massive view of the lake. There is lots of outdoor open space for games, volleyball and just napping in the several hammocks available.
The cabin, outdoor kitchen and bunkhouse were all clean and made with fresh bed linens. The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, silverware, serving dishes and everything we generally needed.
A highlight of our visit was waking in the morning and spotting several white squirrels running through the tree tops. It couldn't get any better than that!
Fishing from the dock and swimming in the lake were also helpful in making plenty of memories.
I would highly recommend Camp Declan to any of my friends and business acquaintances.
Thank you, Pat, for your kind comments. We’ve learned a lot since since we started letting others use our place and we’re always striving to improve. Please come back soon!
Dirty, dirty, dirty
We are all for rustic having 2 Boy Scouts but this camp is filthy. The Main house is moldy and musky. Both refrigerators were full of gross food and took hours to clean out before we could use them. Bedding was dirty. The owners items were everywhere as though he has just stepped out. There was no door on a bathhouse that 12 bunk beds shared. The grass was not mowed for weeks. The zip line was rusted and didn't work, the advertised got tub had a foot of grotesque water with cigarette butts. The dishes were disgusting, coffee cups with roaches. There was a wasp nest at the bunk house and 4 of us were stung. We left and didn't stay, went to resort in Orlando that had last minute openings instead and salvaged our family vacation. The owner apologized and refunded half our costs, but said the place was "rustic" - rustic does not translate into "ok to be filthy".
