Big Scrubb Campground

Despite campground having showers & bathrooms and a few spigots to draw water, there is no electric hook ups or water hook ups. Campground is wide open with no shade trees at all. leaving you out in the hot Florida hot sun all day. The OHV trails are not as good or long as the trails at Lake Delancy west. Do not like this campground . Even though Lake Delancy west has no showers or water/electric hook ups we like it better because of the shade trees. We bring our own showers & generators for power.
