  • I love this place. There is stuff to see, but no so much that it overwhelms you. Nice part of Florida history. And the event they have at Christmas is awesome. Not a ton of lights. But there’s plenty of lights, plus free hot cocoa and popcorn! Its a nice way to enjoy the season!
  • I absolutely love this place. The cabins are beautiful. It's quiet and grounds are well kept. We're on our 3rd night here and haven't been bugged by anyone. The warden I think she was, came by for the first time today. So if peace, quiet and nature is what your looking for this is the place😍. This is also the perfect spot for an introvert. Visit and reconnect with your self. Blessed be!
