We spent 4 nights in their "cabins" that are more like pre-fab homes. We were told they were 2 bedroom cabins, however they were not-they did have 2 full sized beds. Not much for scenery. Disappointed in boat tour. The guide kept commenting on how much better it is to take the later tour as then you are more likely... More

My husband and I took a road trip to the Jonathon Dickinson State Park - What fun!!! The people at the Kimball visitor's center were so helpful and it is full of beautiful pictures. We rented bikes and rode next to some good sized gators! Then we had lunch there......pulled pork sandwiches .....which were quite good.......coming from a food truck.... More

We just spent 2 weeks in the campground and would recommend this park as a great spot. The river area includes a small store, which serves as the spot for booking spots on the boat tour or renting canoes and kayaks. We found the boat tour to be quite enjoyable. The captain was friendly, funny, and well informed. He was... More

We camped here for a couple of weeks and really enjoyed our stay. Campsites in the Pine Grove area are large, level, have full hook-ups and are adjacent to bathroom and laundry buildings. Sites here are not protected by trees, so it can get very windy. Campsites near the river are more protected from sun and wind and have a... More

The have two rv sites the one I stayed in was 4 miles to the river activities. I was disappointed I thought I would be camping on the river. I couldn't do much cause I was recovering from an ankle injury. Not my favorite state park. Would not return or recommend.

Went to kayak fish the loxahatchee river. Extremely crowded, massive boats going way up river. Park rangers were not at all friendly. The park was packed and we had to camp with the rvs in the "new" campground. It is completely void of trees and any character. The riverside campground looked much better but was full. I think this is... More

Fabulous job by the State - this park has a ton to do, including rentals of kayaks, canoes, motor boats, and bicycles. Swim in the river, take a hay ride. Go on a horse back or carriage ride. Tons of trails. Lots of guides in the education center. Really excellent resource. Oh - and camping! Don't miss the boat tour... More

This is a huge place on the Loxahatchee River. We went for a picnic and to walk the nature trails. there is also camping and rentals of canoes and kayaks, as well as a tour on a pontoon boat up to a nature camp. We did not do this on the day we went because of the high winds. Our... More

We were driving down A1A looking for a place to bike....to windy, so we switched to looking for a kayaking site.....we noticed JD State Park, pulled into the Ranger Station and asked if the park had a paddling site....oh yes!!! We unloaded our kayaks and enjoyed a VERY NICE paddle up the Loxahatchee National and Wild Scenic River. Beautiful, protected... More
