  • We really enjoyed our stay at the park, even through it rains most of Labor Day weekend. It wasn't very crowded as several of the camp sites were underwater. The park has a huge swimming pool.There is...  more »

  • This place is ridiculous.... they charge you to get in and anything worth doing cost extra. I came with an 8 year old and the playgrounds were extremely basic and he was very bored. He was excited about the pool but it cost $4 a person to get in even though I was not swimming. Then I sat down at a table and was told I was not allowed to sit at a table. There were no chairs except for some that were chained together... I guess you have to rent that too. I would think if I was paying for a pool that I wasn't swimming in then I could at least sit down. That women kept coming out asking people what they were doing and telling them that they couldn't sit at the couple table there. Hillsborough county parks are crazy. I usually drive 35 minutes to Polk county because their parks are much nicer and free.... There is nice walking trails, but other than that other parks are much better.
  • On 06/11/ 17. I rented pavilion #27 for a 60th birthday celebration. This pavilion has electric and is by the pool and is chain fenced which was perfect for our needs. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
  • Staff is GREAT! Camp sites are a little too close together for me. Prices at camp store are high, come on. $ 3.00 for a simple pipsicle? Nothing much to do on rainy days .
  • Pool was closed but the trails were beautiful! They led you along the river, which was the most crystal clear river I've ever seen in this part of the state. Wonderful and worth a visit for the trails and nature.
  • Good place to go, just wished that the pool was with admission, now campers have to pay for pool now also. Gotta love state budget cuts.
