We booked a 3 night stay at the River campground. We liked it so much that we booked 2 more nights. It is very quiet and peaceful. A lot of trails. We saw a couple of deer, a snapping turtle, snakes and tortoise. It was great. We now know our favorite spot to camp in…but we’re not telling 😊
Stayed here during a very HOT weekend May/ June 2020. We stayed in the River Campground, lot 139. This site had a small amount of shade, so it offered some relief from the heat, but compared to other places I have camped this was very exposed. The bugs are pretty bad. Bring your OFF and screened shelters. No-see-ums were bad in the evening, and flies were plenty all day. Lots of ant issues too; we never had a problem with them anywhere else. Once you get past that, there is a ton of stuff to do. A paved and off road bike trail, boat ramps and kayaking, the Florida trail cuts through the park, so there is a lot of hiking. The shower and restroom facilities were kept very clean, and we were very happy with the cleanliness of the park. The off road bike trails are very fun, but just like the rest of the park, very exposed to the sun. This park would be best when the weather cools down in fall and late winter. If you’re a boater, you could get away with it year round, as long as you’re not tent camping.
We were at site 79. Very large and peaceful. Had a great time. Walked and biked around the campground.
I loved this park. There was so much to do and so many different environments- coastal sandhills, upland lakes, and scrub forests, as well as the Loxahatchee River. The campground was really nice and very private- huge sites. We would probably try to stay at the other campground in the park next time because they have sewer hook-ups, but the campground we stayed in was very nice. We hiked, walked, and rode our bikes on trails in the park. There were trails, paved bike paths, and off-track bike paths. The campground is near Jupiter, where there are many fine restaurants. We rode our bikes to the Blowing Rocks Nature Conservancy(definitely worth a visit) with a stop at the Tequesta Brewery on the way back.
Spent 2 nights here to a full campground. Facilities all in working area. Large graveled lots with picnic table, fire ring and bbq grill. Sewer, water, 50/30 amp power. Paved roads with some paved walking trails. Plenty of gravel trails. Ample restrooms and showers. Like 1 bathroom/showerhouse for every 20 campsites with vending, washer,dryers and book game share spot. The buildings are kept clean. Also a nice dump area. Dog cleanup stations are along trails.. Bonus they have a clothes line at each site to toss your towels etc over to dry. T-mobile 3 bars LTE or -104db inside rv. Staff very friendly and helpful at check in. A place to come back to. They also have planned activities throughout the week. During work week you hear road noise from USHwy1. If not for the morning and evening traffic on 1 this would be a 5.
My movie of camping area on youtube.
Great site for a day trip or a weekend. Lots of trails for hiking and mountain biking. Conveniently located but feels like miles away from civilization. Stretches from the ocean to outer areas. Shady Pines Camp area is best for tenters, with several tent only sites. The sites aren’t large but fairly private due to foliage. It’s only a short walk to the beach from there. The Lake to Ocean trail runs through here if you’re looking for a multi day hike with primitive camping, just avoid the wet season because water gets quite deep.
Have stayed here twice, about 70 miles from my home. Always tented in riverland as sites close to ranger entrance are rv only. One warning if you reserve through toll free service there is a $6 charge and they put me in a terrible spot. Ranger claimed only a few others available, but it was July and almost empty. Finally got a good tent site, grass and adequate privacy. Restrooms super clean, quiet all day and night. Forgot my fan and almost eaten alive saved by Off. People in boat shop - store super friendly. Ice, wood, etc available. Took a 3 hour canoe trip , $25 well spent. Next day rented a bike. Good hiking trails too.
Awesome campground. Very spacious sites. Your doors and slides don’t open on to somebody else’s site. Very clean and well kept.
Awesome park with so much to do. There’s bike trails and hiking trails. You can spend an entire day on the river kayaking, paddle boarding and boating. They have boats and kayaks for rent. There’s 2 camp grounds and we stayed at the river loop. There’s water, 30amp and 2 120 plugs on the pedestal. Only dump station. Bathrooms are very clean. Ocean is a short 6 mile drive.
There is water access for boating and paddling, mountain bike trails, a nature center, and miles of hiking trail to explore. They are also pet friendly.
