We visited this state park for the first time.....was surprised the campground is so nice. The beach is not very far by bike, and they have hiking trail, bike trails, nature viewing, and so much more to do. By far, a very short drive to the parking area, we walked over to the beach and had a very enjoyable day... More

This is a great place to see a Florida park with kayaking and biking and site seeing. Hot very hot in summer. A lot of Florida history here.

Can't beat the price. Only drawback for the full hook-ups is there is no shade. However, if you like to rough it, there is another camping section further back in the park.

It looks like a nuclear bomb hit this place. They call it prescribed burns- yet they happen constantly.

The wildlife in the park are on the move all the time! We stayed in a cabin and found the bed to be a little less desired and believe that ants or the gnats were in the bed at night with us. But it is in reality a state park in Florida. We rented a canoe and a kayak one... More

We set off on kayaks to explore river, but quickly went back to store and upgraded to a skiff because of the wind and the work it would've taken for the return trip! River was so pretty an we were able to make it to homestead in a short time. Nice convenience store, lots to do. Playground was closed because... More

Great place to rent a canoe and head up river to Trapper Nelson's old homestead. Lots of wildlife along the way to enjoy. Easy paddle up.
