  • There is a boat launch and RV camping area if your interested in that. I thought the trails and beach area are not anything to write home about and my visit to the park was for walking the trails...I just wasn't impressed. There is a $2 admission per car and I'm surprised they charge admission here. There are other parks that are free which have better trails.
  • A very beautiful, serene beach and children’s park. The shore was a bit rockier than I was expecting which might make me think twice when running through the list of beaches in the area. Ultimately, I think what really sells me on this beach is that it feels very private. It’s a little too small and ‘natural’ to really draw in a large number of rambunctious people. Although it could be that my visit during the off season has given me a false impression.
  • This is a nice park that offers RV sites, picnic tables, a boat ramp that leads into Tampa Bay, a sandy beach, swim areas, and private areas. They also hold various festivals and events here throughout the year. This would be a nice place to have a family reunion, work function, or celebrate a birthday. There's at least 2 large play grounds for small kids, plenty of open grass areas to play frisbee or pass a ball. There are lots of parking areas all over the park. It cost $2 to get in with 1 car, and of course more for campsites and boat ramp use. There are several covered shelter areas with grills and you can even park your car and watch the sunset over the water. The park overall was clean and looked well maintained.
  • Stayed here for a month... I'll have to say it was an amazing experience to wake up in the morning, and be here. Big campsites, and it feels more remote. Warning, remember to bring bug spray for the no-seams because they come out bad at about dusk.
  • The no-seeums where a bit heavy at dusk but the campground was beautiful. The only thing that could of been better is if it had waste disposal at each site. Spaces where great and camp fires where nice. Looking forward to going back
