  • Surrounding Snake Creek paddle to Blue springs and Hontoon island hike to native Timulcan mound is a easily 5 star. The wildlife seen on trip in late March includes Armadillo, Alligators, Bald eagle, manatee, Gar, raccoons, possum, and various birds. The little pontoon ferry over to park store/registration and .3 mile sandy shades hike with gear in wheelbarrow is pretty sweet. Only reason for one lost star is the campsites are rather clustered together but on the weekend our group was there, lots of noise and park van made several trips starting at 8 am, and that did steal away some of the serenity. Very helpful rangers and informative volunteer staff on site.
  • The Park is really nice however, I took a large group by 2 boats and set up near the park and restrooms to grill out. There were 5 Paid Park employees going in and out of the office and standing around laughing and taking the ferry back and forth with no passengers, all the while they never opened the store or the bathrooms without construction around it. They only opened the one being worked on. I asked the rangers if the facilities were closed during the week? They said "We just don't opened everything if we do feel like it's busy." The faucets weren't even turned on by the grills which is hazard. There were several other groups of people visiting this area while the "Paid Park Staff" made things a lot less convenient and the "Paid Park Staff" could not have cared less......
  • Great mini trip grandson Joshua came to hang out with us we had a blast fishing was great Josh caught bream Al caught catfish we already planning another trip with all the grands and great grands staff very polite restrooms really clean entire campground nice and clean well kept
  • The trail was really nice !! Landscape change midway with a few wooden bridges. It's also free... You can't beat that. There's a playground as well (=
  • Awesome place for the families to visit. Lots of stuff to do there. Awesome nature stuff to see. Good fishing place lots of shade .
