With a friend, I hiked the Lassiter Trail and camped at the backpacking section, also hiked the Coleman Trail. The trails are well maintained and very scenic as they pass the Millpond and wind through the trees. There is also a family campground and camping in an area accessed by canoe. The Visitor Center has a knowlegable, friendly staff, restrooms, programs, exhibits, brochures, and a wonderful "backporch" with comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy views of the Millpond. I didn't see any, but alligators call Merchants Millpond home; should make for an interesting (and fast) kayak trip! Although occasional road noise could be heard, while camping we were serenaded by Great Horned Owls, and the constant sound of rushing water from the distant spillway.
