We try a different State or National park every year and were really excited about this one after reading all of the great reviews. Unfortunately, this was definitely the biggest letdown so far of our camping trips. The park itself is very nice. It's big and has lots of scenic trails to bike and ride. Although we did not see...

We stayed for three nights, had a blast. Most of our neighbors were very friendly. Friendly park rangers. Very scenic, I loved the catwalk. This was the first camping trip for most of my family, who all didn't want to go to begin with. By time we were leaving, no one was ready to leave and plans for the next... More

This park looks to be about 6 mi square on the map. It is serviced by a single visitor's center but the road forks to provide access to the camping area, the CCC History Museum and a loop road takes you around to dozens of walking trails and an amphitheater. A Hammock is a raised area within a swamp. Most... More

Our site was filthy with Cigarettebutts everywhere. Obviously rangers don't monitor sites. Supposedly only allow 2 tents per site but at least three next to us. No privacy, and just plain filthy. Good if you like party central!

Despite the 2 hr drive to get there from Ft. Pierce FL, not a bad one as mostly fields and not traffic lights.So do gas up before leaving. Our friends drove an hour from Lakeland. Park itself was very nice; the only thing missing was a body of water to use for recreational purposes. ( there was a lagoon covered... More

We had reserved a spot but when we arrived someone else was in it. Having camped here before we knew it is a very popular park in a populated area. We like secluded campsites (as much as possible) Having booked online we picked out a site that would give us as close to that as we could get. The park... More

Only stayed there for one night. Had I known, we would've stayed there longer. Nice park, lots to do and see. Well maintained and clean. It is very family friendly.

Great trails, CCC museum, and an informative tram ride. Commune with nature while enjoying the history of the park. On the weekends local artist share their art and musicians their music. Very exciting and interesting park experience.

We have camped here many times, and it's always a great time. Park staff are always helpful if needed, but not intrusive. We generally geocache here several times yearly, there are many caches here, and new ones regularly added. There are a lot of short or longer hiking and biking trails. This is a great place to visit for the... More
