  • We really enjoyed camping in this state park except that some of the bathrooms are closed. It is about five minutes southeast of the beginning of Naples and close to Marco Island. There is noise from ...  read more »
  • The park is just average. The camping was pretty much on top of each other - I was fortunate to be there during the week so there were not too many campers. I visited at the end of September (rainy se...  read more »
  • Visited for Lunch and walk around. Great wildlife. Saw vultures and also a racoon. Nice place to chill out 
  • 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.
  • Mosquitoes were bad and not much to do besides a simple campground and kayaking/boating.
  • 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.
  • It's a nice campground with electricity at each site and good tree cover. But it's infested with mosquitoes. The mosquitoes attacked the second we arrived. We got bitten even after covering our skin as much as possible and using bug spray. They need to spray the campsites - add five bucks to my bill if necessary - potentially dangerous infestation.
