Would we stay there again, YES! This is one of the jewels in the Florida State park system. I thin it was under 30/ night. We stayed 3 nights, toured the facility in Jan. 2014. Perfect weather, Great RV sites, Min 30' wide with 50'+ , Big buffer between sites and plenty of parking and roadway to maneuver a big... More

I go to run on the trails throughout the park. The trails are fun to run on through the trees and around the park.

I arrived around 9:30 on a weekday morning with my grandchildren and we were all excited about taking the 11 a.m. Loxahatchee River boat tour. The woman at the gate informed me the 11 a.m. tour was sold out, but that the 1 p.m. tour was still available. I paid the entrance fee and decided to purchase the tickets for... More

We visit the park because of the opportunity of Canoeing in the river. It was amazing! We got there right when the Visitor Complex open to rent the canoes, so the river was completely empty. The staff was great at explaining us the route and the map. The canoes and kayaks are in good shape the also provide all the... More

I've been camping at Jonathan Dickinson Park for years and have never been disappointed. First, the camp is big rig friendly with large parking and camping areas. Clean restrooms are always a plus. If you want to go fishing or boating, there is a boat rental area or boat ramp just a few miles away in the park. Second, the... More

A vast scrub land with hidden treasures. Well placed camp sites, well maintained bathroom facilities. An informative education center. Lots of trails that are easy to walk/bike. Remember to bring bug spray the sand gnats and no see ums can get a little fierce. There are plenty of options for both the type of camping experience you desire (cabins to... More

Rented a cabin for a couple of nights inside the park. It was clean (linens were stacked and wrapped in plastic and placed on each bed) and tidy. The air conditioning was sufficient as were the kitchen facilities and cookware, although there was no oven. The kayaking was wonderful...we were the only people out on the water and we enjoyed...

Since my last review we have camped at the park two more times. April and May 2014. Even during a deluge of rain the river campground dries out immediately. We hiked, we biked, boated, canoed, kayaked, geocached and had an all around wonderful time as usual. The river campground is a fantastic place to camp. We tend to stay on... More

Took a day trip to the park to walk the trails. They have some of the best trails in the state parks in Florida. There's plenty to do. Horse rides, wagon rides (in season), There's a swimming area at the river, kayaking and canoeing, a guided boat trip to Trapper Nelson's. Paved biking trails as well as off-road biking. The... More

This is a nice park to visit for a few days. Camped at the River campground with some friends on Mothers Day weekend. Lucky to have a shady spot near trails. 5 minute walk to camp store and boat rentals. Quiet after dark was nice. No loud campers. Will be camping here again this fall.
