This place is beautiful! We are so glad they added a Segway tour to their activities. I’ve done a Segway tour before and now I look for them every where I go! It’s a different way to explore and you..... more »
Nice park park, well kept trails and lake access. The park area has a nice playground, gazebos, and a lookout tower. The primitive campsites are great they have picnic tables, fire rings and plenty of area flat area to put your tent. Call ahead to book the primitive sites and make sure to check in and out at the ranger station.
Such a wonderful campground! Private, clean. The bathrooms are so clean. Very old world Florida. If you have kids, there is a play ground and plenty of paths to ride your bike on or walk along. Very friendly staff. You'd be very happy camping here in a tent or RV.
