  • Love this park!! I'm a single mother with two teenage daughters and I feel safe enough for the three of us to camp here overnight in a tent. Yes, the roads are unpaved and in need of grading in some places. So, drive slow and stick to the speed limits. But, all in all, it's an awesome place with a good bit of "let's do this" options. Recommended.
  • This is a great state park. I go kayaking from here often. There is a great loop for kayaking that is about 13 miles and takes you from tomoka state park to sanchez park through Thompson creek. Great number of birds and smooth water. There are often manatees during the summer swimming around and they may even approach your kayak. The park itself is well maintained and the little camp store on premises has good prices and a good selection of beer to include local draft microbrew.
  • I went with my family and we had a good time exploring the park and also kayaking. The restrooms are very specious and clean. We absolutely love this park. Can't wait to go back! All the employees were very friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Wonderful State park. We stay 11 days in a pop-up June 23-july 4. Loved it didn't want to go home. Will be back.... soon. Rangers were very friendly and eager to help. We enjoyed fishing, kayaking, and exploring.
  • Not sure what to say. Dirt roads throughout park, dust everywhere. Nice staff, but there does not seem to be any leadership vision for park. We camp with our RV in Florida State Parks monthly. The campground was one of the worst of Florida State Parks. Trees grown into roadway. This could be a great park if someone would have the vision to make it into a park like Silver Springs or Wekiva Springs. RV's there are many many trees growing right up to and into the dirt roads inside the park and campground.
