    Keystone Heights, Florida

    One of Florida's first state parks, the park was developed on a 600-acre site by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s. The extraordinary craftsmanship of the CCC is still evident today.

    Gold Head has three campground loops, Sandhill, Turkey Oak and Lakeview. The park's 73 campsites accommodate tents, trailers and motorized campers. Each site includes a picnic table, fire ring/grill and potable water.

    A centralized dump station is available for use, and 20- and 30-amp electrical service is available at all campsites except for sites 57 and 60-67 in the Lakeview campground loop. Sites 16-18, 58 and 59 feature 50-amp service in addition to 20- and 30-amp service.

    Each campground has its own bathhouse facility with hot showers. The Lakeview bathhouse is fully accessible and sites 58 and 59 are the closest, with paved sidewalks leading from the sites directly to the bathhouse.

    Well-behaved domestic pets are welcome in the campgrounds but are not allowed inside the bathhouses. View our park pet policy for more information.

    A coin-operated washer and dryer are available at the Sandhill and Lakeview bathhouses.

    Two primitive campsites are located within the southern end of the park just off the Florida National Scenic Trail. These sites include a picnic table, fire ring and a common pavilion.

    Three primitive group campsites are available for organized youth and adult groups. An organized group is six or more people camping together who are members of or sponsored by a recognized community organization such as a church, benevolent society or civic service club.
