  • Sorry Florida State Park System but this place is a travel ghetto! The campsites are so close to each other that there is absolutely NO privacy and certainly no place to revel in nature or spend time ...  more »
  • We spent one night and camped in our RV. There was plenty of space and we brought the dogs. Everyone was nice, helpful and friendly. There is a small community area. As we had the RV we didn't need to...  more »
  • Ok for an overnight on your way to or from someplace...anyplace else. Not a destination state park. Campground sites are wide enough. The park is clean and the rangers are nice. Turns into locals part...  more »

  • Nice place to bring the family and get away from it all. The park is not huge by any means but the camp ground is well taken care of. We enjoyed bringing our pop-up camper there.
  • A great place to hike .....but it can get muddy depending which season you are there. Also on display is one of the original 'Dreggers" that helped to create Route 41, the Tamiami Trail in the early 1900's. There is also a boat launch there.
  • Historic park with some interesting sights, on the 3 miles trail we saw an alligator crossing our way right in front of us, quite an experience! The park is well kept, family friendly and perfect for a peaceful barbecue day; if you want to walk the trail I suggest you to call first and ask about it, some months during the year they are flooded due to rain.
  • We book a site reservation for a 32 foot travel trailer. We were told that there was plenty of room to park it, but to our surprise upon arrival to the park, trees are to close to the road, very narrow space for anything over 28 foot. To my believe after seeing this park sites. It is more for tent camping than for Rving. Loved the garlic festival at Del ray beach and the seafood festival at Everglades City...just wish that they do more improvements to the park. We stay at the park from 2-6 thru 2-10 2015.
  • Mosquitoes were bad and not much to do besides a simple campground and kayaking/boating.
