  • We have been here one night with our rv. Beautifully situated, but a lot of mosquitoes. As the sun goes down you actually really inside. There is firewood for sale. A toilet/shower House and a washing machine. Tip ride via the Tamiami trail here, beautiful route with all Gators along the way.

  • We had a fabulous spot, lots of space to spread out. The fire pit was a great success. I advise plenty of insect repellent of the strongest form. It seems the one I used which I brought from English seemed to attract bugs and I was a lovely dinner for a array of the little buggers. However the site are local area was much enjoyed.
  • As great as any Florida State Park. The camping area has nice amenities, including fire ring, electric and water hookups, and a central dump station. The sites are various sizes. If you have a bigger rig, make sure your reservation is made way in advance, as the bigger spots fill early, especially for winter camping. There is a really nice bicycle trail that's a 3.5 mile loop. The trail is generally flat and not super narrow, plus it's covered in pine to make it a nice ride. Most of it has a shady tree canopy, and we even saw an alligator. Too bad we didn't get "lucky" enough to see one of the elusive Panthers. You'll also find some neat historical displays. The rangers are helpful and friendly, making this a really nice park to visit.
  • Great park, Friendly staff, Trails for hiking were closed due to fires/smoke but the paved bike paths were amazing. Great wildlife/scenery- Very quiet (despite a million kids) Restrooms were ok- needed to be cleaned more often than they were- Only complaint is there are not enough showers. BTW anyone with tent camping they have a whole loop that was very nice and quite heavily shaded.
  • Washrooms were clean. Visa operated washer and dryer for our stinky canoeing gear, friendly staff and close to town for anything missed. The waterway was really nice too and many people were fishing and Kayaking..seemed like a lot going on and the tenting area was quiet after sundown with the exception of my snoring. A wayyy too friendly squirrel also was trying to help pack our tent as we were packing up to leave. Tent sites were a little too close for my liking but a nice spot.
  • This is an excellent park for exploring the Mangrove forests in a kayak/canoe and hike the swamps. The campground is clean but sites are close together (-1) with sparkling clean restrooms. Everyone was friendly.
