Always enjoy birding at this location, esp. for the season migrants. The park is great for wildlife photography (but remember, it's Florida, so if you go off on a trail - be prepared).

Saturday mornings a VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE guide takes you through the preserve pointing out birds, wildlife, and anything that moves, hides or resides in the rainwater . Relaxing as you paddle through the waters in a serene and pristine environment you would never know you are in the fastest growing county in the US. Kayakers of all abilities are welcome and... More

I've done enough tent camping to confidently say Savannas is an outstanding park. I stayed for 4-nights during December and despite the wind and rain I had a comfortable time. Savannas is located on a swampy area. There is fishing and boating opportunities nearby, and good beaches are about 10-miles drive away. There are two types of tent camping available:... More

We just stopped for couple days. Park was very clean. Office staff was great. Since the weather was colder we want a camp fire but could not buy any wood. Restrooms were clean and laundry was good as well and good price. They had a great dog runs. Good place to camp to explore the area.

We camped here in the spring of 2013. The spaces offer little privacy, but the setting is peaceful. That is until the very surly night host shows up drunk on his "Gator" utility vehicle. He and his buddies on the morning shift are the "Lunatics running the asylum". My wife and I could smell the beer from 6-10 feet away... More

We stopped by here and went kayaking. We found the woman working here to be very friendly and helpful. The prices for the kayaking are very reasonable and we had an enjoyable trip. I would recommend stopping here.

Took my son here to go kayaking. It was fun, we got "lost" at times but it was fun. Great place to just go relax and enjoy nature

We have lived around the corner from this for the last 5 yrs, and just discovered what a great place this was. Very educational for children and adults alike. Lots of hand on exhibits, live animals, and displays about the Savannas. Will go back and back

We rented their private island for the weekend for our wedding a few years ago and even though their staff were rough around the edges they were efficient and helpful. We still visit regularly for day trips and picnics. The place is beautiful and kept in very good shape. A great place for picnics, camping or just taking a short... More
