  • I don't know how many stars to give because we weren't able to experience the park. What we saw of it looked nice. We drove all around the park looking for the rental place but couldn't find it. Final...  more »

  • 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.
  • nice little out of the way park still close to home.. Great boat ramps, great parking! Lots of shelter houses for events, public swimming beach is a little primitive, lots of sea grass.
  • Great little park tucked away in south Hillsborough county that offers camping, canoe and kayak rentals & boat launch. There are a couple of beachy areas, but it's mainly campgrounds and picnic areas. Make sure to bring plenty of bug spray and sunscreen!
  • 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.
  • 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.
