The area is home to a small campground. Day visits are welcome and they even rent kayaks and canoes. I walked the newest trail. It is an in and out, about a mile each way. Encountered many birds and an alligator. Will be returning often.

This was a last minute stop and we were very pleased. There was just one other camper on our loop, so it was very peaceful. We were on site 12. Picnic table is behind the RV, would like it next to the camper, however guess it is so you can look at the water. There is a train that goes... More

We had booked a camping trip to the west coast of Florida, but Hermine put it under water! So in a pinch for Labor Day weekend, we ended up Savannah Rec Area. Great wild life, dog friendly and affordable. Tammi and the staff in the office could not have been more accommodating! BUT, the facilities were filthy! And the grass... More

My wife and I stayed at Savannas one week in 2015, and then, for two weeks in 2016. Both stays were very nice. The campground is clean and well groomed. We enjoy the wildlife, alligators, sandhill cranes and turtles, etc. We saw two alligators, one was approximately four feet in length, the other was approximately six feet in length. The... More

I recently learned there is a mile and a half paved trail at the end of this park and have been using it for a morning run. It is so pretty in there and a great change of pace from my neighborhood. The trail leaves from the dog park area. If you want a couple more miles, park at the... More

A couple friends and I stayed for two nights. Pretty nice place with lots of wild life. We saw baby alligators. Spot 10 was pretty nice because it has some trees for shade. The spots are kind of close together so there's not a whole lot of privacy. I wouldn't recommend going during the summer months. There's no place to... More

We camped here for 4 days. Had a fantastic site right on the river. The back window in the RV looked out into the marsh. Birds are everywhere and some medium size gators were visible. We fished, caught a few nice looking catfish, but released them back into the water. Every evening at 6ish the Ibis would fly over to... More

Here is a place that puts one back with nature. You can see native birds and animals in their natural environment and in a peaceful spot that people can relax in. The native birds both small and large come here to nest and live in peace without the encroachment of humans and you can imagine what it was like many... More
