  • I felt like I was in the road all day long, from Orlando to Backwater River, but men what a road, beautiful!! When we got there awesome staff, clean bathroom and environment. Was my first time camping...  more »
  • We were supposed to camp here just overnight on our trip out to NOLA, but we actually had to stay a second night due to SNOW here in the panhandle of Florida. What a beautiful sight just a couple week...  more »
  • A bit remote but well worth the drive, this little gem is a wonderful place to take a break from the hustle & bustle of camping. No wifi so a more subdued experience but the local natural beauty more ...  more »

  • Nice water, many beaches as the river snakes from side to side. Speaking of snakes, THERE ARE SNAKES! And alligators, and all other sorts of river dwelling things that you don't want to be bitten by! SO BE AWARE! But it's fun, it's cheap, and it's nearby. There is canoe and inner tube rental for relaxed floating. No alcohol allowed. No glass containers allowed! Hefty fines for breaking state park rules!
  • It’s a great place to cool off during the hot summer days. It’s Florida and you should expect any kind of wildlife when you step in the water. The water is super clear, clean, and I have never seen any gators. Definitely turtles. I would also say this place is a gem as its not too over crowded yet.
  • What a beautiful park! The sand on the riverbank is similar to the sugary Panama City Beach sand. Lots of boardwalks / places to hike near the river.
  • Love this place. Beautiful, very nice staff. Very clean. Definitely will be back
  • Great park. Sites are clean and we'll spaced out. River is canoe and kayak heaven. Way out in the woods. Don't trust your GPS, look on the website for best results.
