Thoroughly enjoyed the educational center and the riverboat tour all the way up to Trapper Nelson's cabin. Saw plenty of turtles, varuious water birds, one small gator and plenty of local flora. The boat captain was great and explained a lot about the area. The overlook point is also expected nice as it allows you to see the intracoastal waterway... More

There are many geocaches hidden in the park. The observation tower is fun to climb and provides a great view of the area. We saw lots of wildlife, birds, a tortoise, and a snake. The campground was nice and clean and well-kept.

We stayed at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in late July 2015. This park is very nice with plenty of RV spaces. You can take a relaxing pontoon boat ride on the Loxahatchee River or rent a kayak or canoe. There is also a lookout tower claiming to be the highest spot (a whopping 82 feet above sea level) in southern... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in an RV in the pine grove campground. The park itself is located near Jupiter, and is a 5 minute drive from grocery stores and restaurants in town if you need any last minute picnic supplies. The pine grove campground is essentially brand new with full water, electric, and sewer hookups at every site.... More

Park rangers wanted to charge us $8 per person to use the restooms. No signs were posted about the fees anywhere on the bathrooms or on the rules. A park ranger just took our plate and would not let us leave without paying the fees. THEY EVEN STARTED CURSING AT US WHEN WE CHALLENGED THE FEES.

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
