Went camping this past wekend with 3 other families. The camp grounds are nice. Big enough to comfortably fit two large family tents per site. Each site has electrical and water hook ups as well as a fire pit and picnic bench. The bathrooms were decent. Kept fairly clean. The water wasnt hot at all, maybe luke warm at best, but it was so hot in the day that it felt refreshing.
We rented canoes and the kids had a blast. Saw lots of fish and gators. Its 3 people per canoe so if you are a family of four, you will have to rent 2 canoes (one adult in each canoe) or take turns in one.
There is also horseback riding but we didnt get a chance to do that..maybe next year.
The only think I didnt love was that the RV's are in the same area as tents. This seems to be the same set up in many parks, but we have been to some where the tents have a separate area from the RV's and I prefer that. While the bushes formed a nice barrier so you had some privacy, when you walked around there were RV's everywhere.
Overall we had a great time. We arent avid campers...we go once a year with the same 3 families, but we liked this park enough that we are planning on going there again next year to get in more exploring and the horseback riding that we missed..
