  • We camped here in early April. We had read all of the reviews and came prepared for potential tick and mosquito issues. We had 5 families spread over 5 sites, and I didn't hear a report of a single tick sighting and didn't even really notice mosquitos. We brought canoes with us and had fun paddling around the creek. We tried our hand at fishing, but didn't have any luck. The camp sites are large and were very clean and level. The park does not have much in the way of attractions, so there were very few other visitors besides campers. It gave it a very isolated feel, but we really liked having the park to ourselves and letting the kids roam around between our campsites. There is a short 1/2 mile trail in the campground that the kids liked and another 3 mile trail by the ranger station, but we never made it that far. All in all we had a great time just camping, but I wouldn't recommend the park for those that want a lot of activities beyond camping.
  • Don't go! We visited on 10/30/2016, Rudest park employee/ranger/ manager ever.
  • Great park, beauitful settings , Dennis (park ranger) great help EXCELLENT FISHING. Folfs this is OLD FLORIDA at its best. There's great camping, canoeing / kayaking, hiking , all the facilities are clean and well kept, excellent boat launch.
  • I'm not one for swamp style camping. This wasn't a good first experience.
  • Of ALL of the campgrounds I've stayed at in the State of Florida... THIS ONE is my *FAVORITE*!!!! The reason is simple; you have to drive down a small dirt road from the entrance sign for a WAYS before you reach the campground out in the middle of nowhere! And the sites are so far spaced apart with trees & bushes in between, you truly feel like you're legit camping! And old Saint Augustine is only about a 20 - 30 minute drive away as well!
