Camped this past weekend so we could enjoy the Christmas lights and the other activities they have. The lights were very nice. They gave away popcorn, hot cocoa, and marshmallows to roast. A big bonfire. Several crafters. They were very interesting. A honest to goodness blacksmith was amazing. Price to enter park for festivities is $3. Kids will love it.... More

This campground is well maintained by the camp hosts/ volunteers. The mostly level gravel sites are large, and actually raked between users. This is an area with lots of large trees so there is plenty of shade. There are quite a few pull through sites, and some are long enough for whatever RV and anything you are towing to stay... More

The bathrooms and showers are pretty maintained and there is a nice playground for the kids. Not a lot of attractions on the campground itself, but there are trails for walking and biking as well as shops and the... More

We absolutely lucked into a site here for just one night. Have tried to get in before but have never planned far enough ahead. It is a great place to spend time and we will be back. The sites seem well kept and ot terribly close together. There is a good mixture of families and seniors but noise was not... More

Great sites. All lots are wooded with privacy. The Culture Center is also interesting. There are craftsman on site. Blacksmith, weavers, etc. stayed three days. Gift shop with a lot of Florida books, gifts. Everyone was very nice, as is the norm for most State Parks. Restrooms are very clean in Campground.

After visiting 2 "parking lot" state park campgrounds, this was a refreshing change. Most sites are spacious and private. Bathrooms and showers were clean, washing machines worked. Fun to see crafts people at work daily. Impressive dioramas in Stephen Foster museum. Hammer dulcimer player was amazing. Snack/craft store had wifi and fresh coffee. Playgrounds would have been great for my... More
