There is a lot to do here. Bike riding, mountain biking, a shooting range, an area to fly model planes. They also have camping. You can read more about our camping experience on our travel blog.

“Very Cool”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This park is so big and there are events that are held here all year round. For example, the Jerk Festival is held here every year. Not only that, but this park is RC friendly and that is important for me because it is hard to find a park to fly my RC helicopter. The park has a RC airport with runway. There are many different clubs that meet here, but you do not have to be joined to a club to use the RC section of the park.

“Great Park”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This is a great clean, well rounded park. From the nice model airplane flying field to the boat dock to the gun range, dog park and jogging trails, this park has it all. I've always found it to be clean and well maintained. We take our bikes there and use the wonderful bike trails. I also spend time there watching the guys fly their model planes. Some fly pretty big Army,Navy and airline model jets. What a show that is. I bring ear muffs for my grandsons as those engines are almost as noisy as the real ones.

“Nice campground”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Huge campsites. One loop has pull-through sites. The other loops each have one huge concrete area for an rv if you don't want to park on the grass. You can take a hike through a trail to get to the levee to watch a beautiful sunset and look over the vast everglades. Out of approximately 80 campsites there were maybe 10 sites occupied when I was here in August 2012. Good if you like lots of privacy but I missed camping with other people and didn't feel safe because of the isolation. There is no laundry facilities or security gate at night. Anyone can come in whenever they feel like it. I was told by several employees that there is often vehicle burglaries at the dog park next to the campground but no problems at the campground. I didn't have any problems. Convenient to shopping and groceries. Pool in park and boat rental area was closed 'due to budget cuts' according to front office. Park does have other amenities: dog park, model airplane field, target range, lakes for boating and mountain bike trail. There is a canal alongside the campground that gets pretty noisy with locals bringing their wave runners and boats. Park is very popluar with bicyclists. I saw lots of serious bicyclists dressed in racing gear. Huge park.
