Quiet, friendly and clean. A beautiful tree filled campground. It was our first camping experience in 25 years with our first ever travel trailer and we will be going back soon. The friendly office staff were very helpful throughout the weekend...beginning with the reservation process.

Quiet park, shaded camp grounds, decent sized lots, a bit tricky to navigate with a larger trailer. Very helpful staff. Facilities were well maintained, river was very busy at the boat launch. A few nice trails as well.

I didn't camp here, but we rented kayaks for a few hours and explored the river. It gets pretty busy with river traffic on the weekend, but we did see manatees, blue shelled-crabs, and a wide variety of birds. The manatees came so close we were able to pet them from our kayaks. Ask about the underwater caves (very close... More

This place is a great way to get some spring river experience while camping close to it. There's no annoying restrictive park guides telling you to get out of the water or fussing at you for being on the banks. There's some pretty sweet underwater caverns to snorkel and explore and you can also rent some yaks if you want.

Forget Disney! Forget Sea World! The real Florida adventure is on the Chazz! Get there early to rent your kayaks or canoes - we got the last boats at 11am on a Thursday. Head upstream for an easy paddle, and take a left where the stream splits. Before you know it, you're paddling over turquoise blue pools of underwater springs,... More

We rented site 19 and though it was a tight spot for our pop up camper, the site was good for a 3-night stay. site #18 is more private and larger and the one we'd recommend next time. The campground sites were fairly close together compared to other campgrounds but we didn't let that bother us. We rented a boat... More

We had a few people with us and wanted a Campsites next to each other. We had woods separating us. We stayed Fri through Mon. Memorial Weekend. Everything was great until Sunday when the park manager came down to our campsite and got into a pregnant campers face while she was holding her 2 year old yelling at her about... More

This unpleaseant experience for all involved began with the complaining party's violation of four rules of the campground. 1. Be reasonable with campfires -They had pulled three fire rings together stacked with large chunks of firewood about four feet high -in short, they were indulging a bonfire. 2. Quiet after ten -they were being consistently loud and a sound nuisance... More

This was our first trip here, some of our group showed up Thursday and the rest came Friday. We requested ajoining sites and upon arrival noticed that the sites had a wooded area between the two, we requested a changed and were informed we could not switch due to another reservation that never showed up. So the whole time were... More

We are sorry that the adjoining sites could not be achieved. After reading this review, it seems that under the same circumstances, a different situation would not have been possible as we had no idea the other party would not show up. No one ever has to walk through another site as a loop road connects them all with very... More

Beautiful place to tent, the site was small but the area is nice and wooded, nice shower house, drinking water hose, pit toilet in rustic area, however- firewood is crazy pricey. Buy it somewhere else first.

Chass is a small family run campground with full hookups for low prices. Wifi is excellent (streaming works fine) and the lady who owns the place is a great person! Sites are in mostly in shadow but not that large with not that much privacy. You rent kanoes and kayaks and start paddling in the Chass river which is really... More
