  • Only $2 per car to get in and we love to take our puppy there to walk the small trail around at Hunters Pass so she doesn't get tired and there are water areas you can walk them down to the water. There is a lot to do without pets: boat ramp, trails, beach, camping, picnic tables and pavilions. At lot of birthday parties happen here and I've even seen bouncy houses allowed. There's a pretty good size playground too.
  • Great park and location, but impossible for locals to get camping due to all the snowbirds that take up all the sites for long periods. Would be nice if they limited the camp sites to a week or so and saved some for local residents to use. We are shut out from using our own park, and can't book ahead. Otherwise, great place, wish I could use it more.
  • Awesome park with so much to do. Fee per car load is 2.00 but well worth it. Many fishing holes, trails, playgrounds, beach fronts, swimming, and events. Today I visited the art festival which was 5 dollar entry separate from the entry fee just like the seafood festival was. This is an amazing park please go see it.
  • I recently attended an art festival here and love the site. The best moment was approaching this park shortly after the gate opened and feeling the breeze off the water. I found it to be a peaceful place. There isn't a lot of sand, but certainly plenty of places to fish and sit to relax. Lots of eating spots, too. I could imagine the pavilion being a wonderful site for a wedding or special event. Hillsborough County has something special here. I live in the area and I don't visit as often as I should. Manatees in the area. How cool. Lots of boaters, too.
  • Great place to camp. We love how quiet and safe it is here. Clean showers and bathroom was plus. The campsites and park was enjoyable. Too bad we can't book ahead for campsite.
