Overall just very pretty. Nice hiking trails. Usually see deer. No swimming available is my only drawback.

It has campgrounds for all variations of campers. Motorhomes, trailers and tents. Lot of shade trees and plenty of BBQ pits on site. They aldo rent out cabins. They have bile trails, frisbee golf and walking trails. You can fish, ski or tube on the river. Highly recommend'

“Besides camping and boating, great day visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to visit - you can actually see alligators up close and personal, ducks, and sometimes deer. Camping sites. We live nearby and do day trips all the time. Playground for kids, grilling stations, and picnic tables. Marked trails for hiking.

“Get away from it all.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

If you want to get away from the city but don't want to travel to far this is a nice place. They have wildlife you can walk up to at the deer pen. The boat ramps are a little narrow but you can fit a big boat in it. The bike trails are fun and some nice hills for skating.

“Good state Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We just went for a short visit. We saw some deer and an alligator. Great place for a picnic, RV camping, or renting a cabin.
