Took my son here to go kayaking. It was fun, we got "lost" at times but it was fun. Great place to just go relax and enjoy nature

We have lived around the corner from this for the last 5 yrs, and just discovered what a great place this was. Very educational for children and adults alike. Lots of hand on exhibits, live animals, and displays about the Savannas. Will go back and back

This week we stayed at Savannas Recreation Area located in Ft. Pierce, Fl. This is a St. lucie County park. Usually we stay in state parks but decided to try this local park while visiting family in the area. Let me tell you this is a great little park. Family friendly, nice folks running it and a beautiful preserve right in your back yard! Our camping spot was right on the river. We enjoyed seeing river otter, giant sand cranes, osprey and one pesky alligator who apparently has been feed by previous campers. The campground has a decent bath house with hot water and nice ceiling heaters, several washer and dryers in a central location. You can camp via class A RV or tent. If remote camping is your thing there is a nice area for that.Bring your kayaks, canoes and hiking shoes. There is a nice short trail to a observation tower. This trail is only about a mile round trip from the campground.

While you feel way out in the wilderness you are actuall only 15 minutes from the heart of Pt. St. Lucie and great shopping, dinning and entertainment. Head east and you've got miles and miles of beautiful beaches for a day of fun in the sun! Ft. Pierce Manatee center and marina are only a few short. Miles away.

We'll definatly be back to this hidden gem!

We rented their private island for the weekend for our wedding a few years ago and even though their staff were rough around the edges they were efficient and helpful. We still visit regularly for day trips and picnics.

The place is beautiful and kept in very good shape. A great place for picnics, camping or just taking a short nature "hike". If you go at the right times you'll see gators just lounging and sunning themselves and if you are lucky you may see some boar on the other side of the water.
