I visited this park on an afternoon trip from Orlando. There is a park sign and small parking lot just off of state highway 46. An information board and brochure box show the trails available. There are two short loop trails through the woods which I have walked before and are very nice. Other much longer trails are available that... More

You can also canoe in the lake and river area. There are hiking trails throughout the park as well as camping areas. Family camping is being updated and... More
