Simple, convenient

We only booked for a night, were unaware of the no gathering firewood rule so had to grab some alternatives from Publix. Was used to primitive camping so didn't consider it may be different. So be prepared, and research ahead. Other than that was pretty.


We booked three nights at this park. Shady, and wide sites. We have a 2020 Tiffin Allegro 36 LA. We had site 28 at first, couldn’t get any power! Ranger then moved us to site 13. Again no power. It was 95 degrees, and real feel 110. In other words, HOT! The only way we could stay the night was to REMOVE our surge protector and plug into 30 amp! In the morning, we told the Ranger we had to leave due to this problem with power. He then told us, many other people have complained about it! This SHOULD be properly represented in their page!

Great experience!

First time camping and it was an amazing experience. Great place to go mountain biking and hiking. Also, the Rangers were very friendly at all times. Definitely recommend this place!


Well we just got here but it is beautiful so far. Love the site, sunset, and stars. Low water pressure.

getting better

stayed for a weekend again. the trees are getting bigger for better shade. camping area is small. bathrooms are nice. dose have a biking area if thats what you do.

Trail Blazing!

This park is close to home for me, I come here often for the Mountain Biking and the awesome humans. The facilities are clean and the MTB trails are constantly changing so we are never bored here. Pup friendly at the campsites as well.

Perfect place to camp and take your horses with you

Very nice facilities. Miles of horseback trails to ride. Very nice horse stalls to put horses in overnight. Perfect place for equine vacation!

Beautiful florida

Very clean, well kept

Affordable but unremarkable

The biggest draw with this place is the price - it's pretty cheap for a Florida State park. But it's basically a large field with a small lake in the middle, and campsites scattered around it. No hiking or activities or anything. That said, it was well kept and made for a fine overnight stop for us on our way to Tampa.

Beautiful trails

I was probably the only hiker at this park and there were a ton of mountain bikers. I loved that they had a ton of different trails to choose from, some just hiking or biking, and some mixed ones. Really well kept. Saw a few deer. The rangers were super nice so that’s always a bonus!
