Great place to recharge your batteries. Just North of North Palm Beach. It is perfect for a day-trip or weekend break-away. Lots to do, like bicycling, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, etc. Be sure to visit Trapper Nelson’s hide-out. It is fascinating. Our tour guide there...More

I have been to the park and stayed in the cabins many times. They are okay, nothing fancy. They do need to be repaired, they are definitely showing signs of age. It’s not the Hilton, more like Budget Inn quality I’d come back again.

Second time camping here. Love the area. Campground is well kept...bathrooms/showers are better than the norm. Highly recommend this campground.

South Florida in general is pretty RV unfriendly, but this park is a clear exception. Site are huge, bathroom very clean, price reasonable. The boat tour to Trapper something is nice but at 25$ per too expensive.
