I have been going here my whole life everything was good and then I found out it is being turned into a state park and was deeply saddened by how poor the park had looked and wish it could return to its better days

Went with friends to check it out. What a truly amazing place, absolutely beautiful. The glass bottom boat rides are awesome. The ice cream shop is a great place to relax and cool down. Going back to do a little kayaking.

The park was taken over from a private enterprise buy the State of Florida and the river cruise is way overpriced.

Would you recommend any particular cabin over the others? Are they all the same size and configuration? Is any one close to a stream or creek?

I'm sorry, I live on the coast and I drive there and back to kayak. I am not familiar with the cabins. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your trip.
