Great state park! Don't miss the annual Yesterday’s Festival, usually in January. Re-enactors, historic demonstrations, cast iron cooking, antique cars, steam engines, tractors, and much more! $5 admission per vehicle.

We live near here and use the park to train for triathlons. There are plenty of hills to ride on and distance to make the ride reasonably challenging. The staff is excellent, especially Cody and Steve Earl. Some of the pavement needs work, but a loop through the park is 5-7 miles with hill exposure (not common in Florida but... More

We stayed a few nights in the rustic cabins. They were built by the CCC and have stood the test of time quite well (like most of their stuff). Good hiking in the park with more elevation change than you would normally find in Florida. Listen closely and you will hear rapids, another rarity in FL. Cabins were spacious with... More

Okay, let’s get one item out of the way right up front. This is a park. You are camping. You’re outside, in nature, and because of this, bring your bug repellent! And always make certain your pet has a flea and tick collar. We started coming to Gold Head 2 years ago, and this review is for our most recent... More

Yes, Goldhead does have its share of problems. But, if you truly take time to enjoy it, you will discover the true beauty of Goldhead. It has many trails to take, and the lakes have returned, so that you can swim here again. I would easily recommend Goldhead for the nature enthusiast.

Very misleading! There aren't any lakes. No swimming, no fishing and no canoeing! After my family traveled 400 miles to spend a nice holiday weekend getaway only to be dissppointed to find out from the ranger that the lakes haven't had any water in over 20 years. The bathroom shower stall doors are very short. You have to croutch down... More

We went back again as part of a large camping group during the beginning of November and stayed in the Lakeview camping loop (don't be fooled…you can't see any lake, they are all dried up) As with our last stays, we know what to expect form this wonderful example of central Florida camping. Lots of room and relaxation for our... More

So first they say there is swimming. There isn't. There's just one dirty lake and only about 25 sq ft is swimmable if you don't mind tadpoles, algae and aligators. Plus what they don't tell you but becomes obvious once you get here that their lakes weren't drained by a natural event but rather due to water being stolen by... More

My family and I just camped in at GHB this past weekend and had a wonderful time! We stayed at site 15 on the Sandhill loop in a 30ft tt. In addition to typical central Florida April weather, we enjoyed the local squirrels, cardinals, dragon flies and lots of deer. The park was well kept, staff was polite, restrooms clean... More

Fantastic Trip! We traveled with 5 Adults and 5 children under 5 years old. We had the best time! Campsite 22 and 21. The sites were huge and it was wonderful for the kids to have the opportunity to run around in the woods. Great Trip for the family!!!
