  • Great hiking and biking trails, camping and fishing. Campsites were good. Comfort stations decent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. 
  • We were here for a day trip. The hiking trails are nice. We enjoyed the Eagle Fitness Trail that had 10 exercise stops. The playground at the beach area is nice but the water was up very high today so...  read more »
  • This park has beautiful cabins and a great place to picnic with kids. There is a play park near the lake and pick nick area. 
  • This park was absolutely amazing! We had a little reunion with some friends and rented 2 cabins! It was so peaceful and quiet. I would recommend twin fitted sheets for the bed. The sheets they provide don't stay on very well. The staff was wonderful and the cabins are very clean. We will definitely stay there again.
  • We stayed in the Wilderness primitive site and enjoyed it very much. The park is clean and quaint but there isn't much scenery so hiking around involves being exposed in the sun. The trails around this site were all sand and was hard to walk on. The beach/lake was probably the best area for 'scenery'. Not bad for being close to downtown Orlando.
  • This place is fantastic for a few days vacation and camping. We visited there a few times. Their cabins are very clean, equipped, and beautiful. Price is fair for cabins rental. There is a superstore a few miles outside the park if needed. Not having a wifi is a pros :)
  • It's a beautiful park that has over 20 miles of well groomed trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding along with canoe and bike rentals, rental cabins, RV campsites with full hookups, 2 primitive camping areas, and an equestrian campsite.
  • This is very large park. You will need a bike to get around. There is a lake to kayak or fish. No swimming, alligators!! Bathrooms are clean and modern. Full hookups with sewage. Raccoons raided our camper and they are not intimidated by you. He came back twice until we gave him a bag a dog food as hush money. Nothing available in park so bring all your food and entertainment. No campfire but raised charcoal grill. You can get tv , cell phone and 4g let.
