  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Such a bad experience because the bathhouses were horrible. This by far is the worse Florida State Park we have stayed. The grounds were not taken care of as well. Steer clear of this State Park! We have loved most all other Florida State Parks.
  • Although the sites are large they do not have any pull through accessible to make it easy for the party bus to get in and out of. The accommodations are nice. Consideration given to the age of the park and the budget State Parks receive for the tremendous amount of time and effort the staff dedicates to giving people a warm family camping experience. I would not recommend this park for the elderly or disabled as it has been a challenge for my parents. Dad still managed to get out and explore and even convinced ma to join him! We have been working on outfitting their new RV home to make it accessible and cozy for them. The park has been completely perfect for that purpose. We are all glad to have experienced it's beautiful views. Campfire usage is heavy on weekends. This causes the smoke to stay low under the trees when it is damp out. That's like every day here in FL. I might suggest on heavily booked nights that a 1 fire per 5 sites rule go in to effect. Many people have breathing issues. I am a smoker and it triggered my allergies in to chaos three nights this week. All in all I have been happy with my visit. I would happily return to check out the rest of the trails.
