I have stayed / camped in a great many American state parks. This is one of the best. Smashing , nicely laid out campground, spacious pitches, some sunny, some shady. Some great hiking and biking trials. Great place to get up close to nature

What a beautiful place to do some hiking. Didn't see an alligator but was lovely just the same. Nicely marked routes, maintained trails, etc. A very nice break from the Disney things in Florida!

Had a high school reunion barbeque at the Pavillion. So I can't speak to anything else about the park, but the pavillion was nice, and hosted a nice meal with friends from long ago. As we drove in, we were told about a Bear warning, and lots of people seemed to be camping out - so seems like a good... More
