  • This park is full of wildlife. We saw deer, Turkeys, raccoons, squirrels, and lots of alligators. A bear was spotted in the campground but we didn't see it. We rented motor boats and took a ride in the swamp to Billy's island and really enjoyed the sites in the swamp. There is no cell service in this park, it's in the middle of nowhere so bring everything you need. It's a 17 mile drive to the nearest town and all they have is a small convenience store. The campground is small and woodsy but that's what we like. The animals will walk right through like you're not even there. I highly recommend this park if you like wildlife viewing.
  • Went last March weekend, stayed in a cabin, took tour, paddled, and used the boardwalk extensively. Cabins are roomy, clean, air-conditioned, and provide all necessities from full-sized kitchen appliances to towels and porch rocking chairs. Plan ahead the next grocery store is probably 1 h away. I didn't turn on the TV but there is no Wifi or cell reception. If needed there is a phone at the ranger station. The guided tour in a slowly motoring boat with a very knowledgeable and accommodating ranger was extremely educational and enjoyable. Highly recommended to get a feel for the swamp and basic information about nature, history, and the big fire. The boardwalk allows you to visit the swamps and observe and identify wildlife flora and fauna. I went several times and saw dozens of snakes, gators, frogs, lizards as well as owls, egrets , and plenty of unidentified birds. Renting a canoe gives you a chance to get even more personal with the local wildlife. Paddling to Billy's Island felt a little adventurous, just enough to make it fun, and presented plenty of opportunities to photograph wildflowers and gators, gators, gators. In late March I did not have to use bug spray but sunscreen.
  • This was my first time camping out and I must say it was an awesome experience. We went over the weekend and I can't thank Josh enough for his kindness, knowledge and overall hospitality. As a first time camper he set up our tents and camping area prior of arriving. We did arrive quite late and Josh still came by to be sure we were ok and if there were any questions. The boat tours are a must, the sunset tour is amazingly beautiful.. Fishing was great also, be sure to bring own bait. Maybe because the area doesn't get busy during this time but there were little to no live bait and nearby gas station and bait store didn't have much. But still caught plenty of fish. The weather was quite hot but comfortable enough to still enjoy and the nights were pretty muggy but if you bring a fan it will make your night much easier. We didn't use the pit, instead brought our own small grill. There were little to no mosquitos surprisingly, but the dragonflies are brutal.. during the night is when most bugs come out, so be sure to have bugs pray. The comfort station is where you can shower, use restroom, laundry, etc.. it was quite clean. We brought flip flops to shower in though. Overall this is a must go place. It also gets quite dark so be sure to have flashlights and lanterns.
  • There is absolutely no cellular signal here. Do not freak out, it's very safe! The campground host - Paul and Don is super friendly and helpful. I have never go camping before, but they set me on the right path, well prepared for my trip
  • My dad used to bring me here as a kid, and now I've been twice with my son. It's a great time. I loved it. Will definitely be back.
