Just returned from a couple of amazing days in the Stephen C Foster State Park. If you want to get up close with nature in its finest here's a place to go! We stayed in the Parks cottages which were well furnished and equipped immaculate and comfortable! Make sure you take the boat tour and book the evening tour too... More

We had a six person the cottage for $150 per night. There was nothing left to be desired. Very spacious, very clean, fully equipped kitchen, (somewhat dated) barbecue facilities right outside, spacious screened front porch to enjoy the evenings outside. Efficient air conditioning. As in many national and state park facilities, there was no Wi-Fi. But to us this is... More

I've been visiting this park since I was a teen. There's a lot to do & tons of wildlife. The cabins were always nice & clean. Not so this time. I had fun with my family, but it was subpar compared to how I remember it. The cabin floor was dirty, the stove was broken, the screen door handle was... More

This park is located in the middle of nowhere. Even Verizon has slow, spotty text ability but no data, so if the weather is looking sketchy to begin with, bring a weather radio. It rained while we were on the swamp and one of the nights we were there, but we still had a blast! The sites in the first... More

This was actually our second time camping here. The park is out in the middle of no where. Just keep driving until you can't drive anymore and then you are there. We have camped at the Pioneer site with our church twice. There are cold water showers and porta potties at the camp site. The skeeters can be pretty bad... More

Rented two cabins for family and friends - all guys, 3 generations; ages from 3 to 68. Cabins not fancy at all but not bad for a state park. Reasonably clean enough for guys fishing trip. Also rented two boats for day. Staff was helpful in making reservations and offering advice for first timers. Enjoyed boating in swamp and beauty.... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way back home from Disney, looking for a base to explore the swamp and some quiet after the Orlando crowds. The cabins are basic but clean & updated. Recommend renting a boat at the marina and getting our to explore - lots of wildlife (dozens of alligators) and friendly park staff to... More

Had a great time kayaking over the weekend! Highly recommend, lots of wildlife and gorgeous views. The rest area about 3.5 miles in was much welcomed too! There is a bathroom and picnic bench out there on the dock as well. Be sure to bring snacks!

I had a terrific time exploring this swamp in late 2011. I loved seeing all the wildlife and I was particularly charmed by the otters. The alligators did not creep me out until they disappeared beneath the murky waters and only one of us knew where the other was. I found the staff friendly and and the canoes and kayaks... More
