  • Great place for a quick getaway. Got to see the meteor shower due to the ultra clear skies. Enough trails to wear out a couple of dogs and humans. Fishing is limited to 2 floating docks about 100 feet long. Camping facilities are great.
  • We have camped here twice and really enjoy the park. The park is well maintained and a good spot for a quiet day in the woods.
  • Park rangers very helpful, nice campground. Super clean restrooms. Water n electric at campsites. On manatee lake.bikes kayaks for rent,very family friendly
  • Cool park. Found this park during the evacuation of hurricane Matthew and needed a place to let the dogs do their thing. Note the real park is east of the mapped park.
