John Pennekamp has something for everyone. Off top of my head we enjoyed .. Trails, swimming, kayaks, history, aquarium, fishing, boat ramp, dive shop, and much more. We spent a week there. Peaceful, easy to get around, something to discover every day. Camp sites are clean, easy access for big or small rigs. Showers/bathhouse/laundry area clean and well ventilated, nice... More

Everyone seemed to have a smile on their face and we were all made to feel comfortable out there - cannot thank them enough. Well worth going out to complete. Beautiful... More

We had a great time enjoying the grounds and water. The snorkeling tour was well organized. Do not remember the name of our captain and guide, but they could not have done a better job. Had great interactions with all other park employees too. Gift shop does have sunscreen meant for use near coral reefs (unlike popular brands that you... More

The Coral Reef tour is 2.5 hours. The staff on the boat are wonderful, friendly and knowledgable. The trip out to the reef and back was comfortable and fun. When you reach the reef, the glass bottom boat tours carefully back and forth and one of the staff talks to you about the types of coral, fish, environmental changes, etc.... More
