Great place for hiking and wildlife viewing. Went early in June and got to see a lot of birds. A lot of birds! Quite a few gators in different sizes. We also had very good time picnicking in the shade under big trees.

The campsites are very large and well spaced out, most have trees between them. You will not feel cramped at all :)
