I read reviews for Kayaking in FL and the stretch from Jupiter to JonDick Park is considered among the best. And I now agree...with caveats. Wife and I rented two single kayaks from the park for the "5-7 hour" trip. Total cost @$65--a good price. Bottom line, the first 3/4 of the trip was AMAZING going through the jungle with... More

This is a very nice state park campground. We stayed on site 79 for one night during the first week in May. The entire site is paved with a paved walking path to the bathhouse. The bathhouse is exceptional! Very clean, very well kept. There is no shade on this site so it would probably be very hot in the... More

I hate to talk bad about a state park but this one is not a park I would ever go back to. I am giving it two because the tower was pretty cool and we did not go out on the river, but we were very disapointed that you could not see more of the river. We were there for... More

This big state park in Hobe Sound, about a half hour north of West Palm Beach, is full of adventures: horseback riding, biking,, hiking, boating, kayaking and canoeing.Their are several terrific beaches, and a lighthouse in the region. The park has cabins and trailers in the park. The cabins situated in a shady grove of pine trees near the Loxahatchee... More

We stayed for 2 nights and would have enjoyed having another day in the area. We stayed in the Pine Grove campground in an RV. Sites are level concrete. Nice winding roads and with sites staggered so you don't look right in neighbors' windows. The River Campground is more rustic with more greenery, but is going to be closed soon... More

Day trip or overnight stay. Camping sites from tents to rvs available. Very clean with good layout from bathrooms to personal firepit. Great biking from leisure to mountain biking with hills and obstacles. Horseback riding, kayak, fishing, tours and more. During summer months go late around 3pm will be cooler and quiet.

This place has an awesome boat tour. The guide is very knowledgeable. We saw alligators, manatees, different trees and birds. Also during high tide they take you all the way up to trapper nelsons site. I highly recommend checking the tide schedule before going.
