I had an amazing time with my boyfriend camping in the cabins. We stayed in cabin 6 and loved it so much. There was one bathroom and a bedroom with two full beds. We went biking and rented a boat. Although, the park ranger was a bit rude because we weren't checked out at 11:30 exactly... But, besides that everyone... More

We wanted to see something of Florida's natural life and landscape, so we hired canoes at this park and briefly (over 2 hours) explored a bit of the Loxahatchee River. It was hot but we took plenty of water and sunscreen, and were rewarded by seeing an alligator sunning itself on the bank of a little creek off the main... More

This wonderful state park has it all. It has kayaking boating fishing swimming hiking picnicking cabins camping boat ramps plus it has a deep and a storied history. You can visit the famous trapper Nelson's log cabin deep in the woods, you can see alligators, all sorts of wildlife, and it has interesting boat tours for young and old alike.... More

Wild and wonderful. Be sure to take a boat to the hidden areas -- the trapper's cabin area is a delight.

We came here to take the river cruise, but enjoyed the park overall. Very popular camping park, and for locals, too. Lots of reunions going on in the large picnic grounds. There are walking paths, trails, horse back riding, biking, boating, swimming beach (on the river), a huge playground, and what looks like a wonderful, new, large wildlife research center... More

We caught the 11 o clock trip up the river, because we wanted to see Trapped Nelson 's. Home. We were told the later trips might not make it there because of tides. We saw Manatees, turtles, an alligator and more. Trapped Nelson 's area was so interesting. The guide was very well informed. The park is very nice, with... More

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
