This is a really great place. I was just there last Saturday and it was a really great Park. I was planning on camping here but decided to check it out first. After you make your way in make sure you stop buy the Kiosk to pay the $2 fee for parking. Also if your planning on hiking make sure you bring a GPS or a Map of the place. You can ask for a map but its only for the first 3 mile loop I think. After you pass the 3mile loop mark your on your own. I got lost many many times. Long story short. Bring a GPS. Also when you pass the 3mile loop mark there's not going to be a lot of coverage from the sun so make sure you bring lots of water. I only did 11 miles on my first visit here and cant wait to come back.
Never crowded and always peaceful! Trails don't leave much for the imagination, typical Florida sand and palmetto bushes for miles. Definitely bring water with you as there isn't any shade or places to stop for water close by once you get past the pavilions.
