  • Loved this camping! Quiet with guards for safety. Very clean with passcodes for bathroom and shower access. The park is amazing with shade and picnic tables.
  • We camped for a couple nights in January of this year. The weather was very comfortable, just cool enough for a fire. Our stay was basically perfect. Now, you have to understand that these are Teepees, not tents with mosquito netting. So you either need to bring preventative measures, or camp there when the weather is conducive to camping without bug netting. For our trip, since the weather was slightly cool, we never saw a mosquito at all. In fact, we never dealt with bugs of any sort. The teepee is relatively traditional, and you have to open and close the ventilation flaps with long poles, which is easy enough for someone of moderate strength. These Teepees aren't 100% water proof, and in rain, they can get wet in the center. Fortunately, the area inside of them is quite large, and you can position yourself accordingly. The Teepees also have a raised platform inside, so ground moisture is of no concern whatsoever. The fire pits at the tent sites have a built in grill, which makes fire cooking a pretty simple endeavor. Trash cans are at each site, as well as metal poles with hooks to hang them on. Also, water and electricity are right there behind the tent, which is a nice convenience. The sites all have a picnic table, too. The restrooms are just across the street, basically, and I found them to be generally pretty clean. There's also a washout sink behind them if you need to clean dishes, so you don't have to run soapy water all over the ground. There's also a camp store, open until 5:00pm or 5:30pm, which is a short walk away. They sell some camping essentials (bug spray, toiletries, a little food, s'mores kits), as well as firewood. Though it's stored in a shed, I found the firewood to be a little damp until it dried out, so it may be worth bringing a bag or two of firewood from Home Depot or wherever you get it. Quiet Waters Park is one of our favorites. They have a water park (open depending on the season), Ski-Rixen, mountain biking trails, volleyball courts, lots of good walking paths, paddleboats and canoes on the weekends, and some very good freshwater fishing. Right around the corner from the park, there's a publix, a super target, and probably anything else you need. And if you really want to un-rough-it, there are restaurants nearby that have take out and delivery. Balcon de las Americas is a favorite Columbian restaurant of ours, and it's right across from the park entrance. All in all, if you have the wisdom to either come prepared or use the Teepees in fair weather, you can have a really great time. We sure did. If the weather is going to be unfavorable, or if bugs are going to be a major concern for you, try to get one of their pre-pitched tent sites. Unfortunately, there are no sites here for pitching your own tent. For a quick, spur-of-the-moment or last-minute camping trip, the Quiet Waters Park Teepees can be a great choice.
  • This is an awesome park for husband and I just bought new bikes...what a great way to explore things right in your back yard...lots of things for kids and adults a like to enjoy! Great trails...get out there and enjoy family ,fun and fitness!
  • Would be a great place to camp if they weren't so strict about EVERYTHING! Stayed for 2 nights and the first night some old lady that lives on the grounds in a trailer must have bothered us until 1am when there was no one in the surrounding sites for us to even disturb. We were told we had to check in between 3-5pm so rushed to get off work early to make it before the office closed, only to see 3 other campsites arrive after 10pm. Very limited parking, the only one of the broward parks that only allows 1 car per. Front office is run by a bunch of high schoolers that care more about their conversations than working; it took 30 minutes to check-out even tho we were the only ones in line. Campsites are nice and well equipped but this will probably be our last time camping here with all the trouble we had to deal with. It has potential but there is a reason that every other park is fully booked a year in advance and yet quiet waters is always available, I would never recommend this park unless you enjoy being frustrated and invasion of privacy.
  • Best tent camping available in FFL PBI MIA area.
