We stayed over July 4th weekend in site 21 and 35. It is a wonderful campground if you have a camper and enjoy water activities. It is probably even better if you fish or have a boat or jet ski. The only downside is that the bugs are terrible in the summer: mosquitos and no see ums. We were bit so bad and nothing would keep them away. You can't enjoy anything outside your camper from dusk to sun-up because of them. You really can't eat outside either because of the bugs. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend tents for the summer months. Great things about the park is that there is plenty of space to get a camper in/out and good space between sites. There is a fishing musem on site that is nice to visit and the treasure museum ($2.00 entry fee) is very tiny but interesting if you are into history/treasure. The cove on the north side is a great place for kids to swim and explore different types of fish & jellyfish (no tentacles to sting). There are dolphins, sea turles and manatees to enjoy. You need to drive over / not safe to walk or ride a bike on the narrow bridge. Park Staff are very nice. Overall - great place for a quick getaway!
