This is one of the nicest campgrounds central Florida has to offer. Clean, well maintained, and friendly staff. They have daily activities at the rangers hut and go out of the way to keep the park on top shape. If you are one of the daring campers that camps in FL in the summer, there is not a lot of shade at the campsites yet.
We were lucky to get a last-minute reservation. The site (#45) was spacious, level, and clean. Easy to back a van into, but I'm not sure about a larger RV or a trailer. We could see the neighbors on either side, but the vegetation helps to provide some privacy. The bathrooms were clean, and the showers looked decent (we didn't use them). There's a wide lawn and path separating the site from the water, and the view of the water was limited, but there was a nice breeze. Surprisingly, we saw no mosquitoes. Be careful of the raccoons, though. They're pretty fearless and active in the daytime. We came back from biking and found one checking out our water hose. At night I saw some rats in the bushes, but they stayed away from us. Just make sure your food is inaccessible. Will definitely go back.
We hiked out about a mile along the Florida Trail and stayed for a night at the Gator Hole campsite. It was so peaceful, lots of space to explore (we had a 3 year old and two dogs!) and the symphony of Sandhill Cranes and Coyotes as the sun set was a memory I’ll never forget. If you can pack all of your gear and carry it out to this site, I highly recommend for any beginner (or expert really) because of its peaceful beauty!
It's a tiny rv park, with small sites, right off a busy road. BUT the bathrooms and laundry are clean, the staff is nice….. and location. Location. Location…… the location is awesome, Clearwater right down the road, best pizza ever nearby. Grocery store and everything u need is right there.
About $85 a night
This was our first time camping here. It's a beautiful park with a lovely shaded campground and lots of oak trees. The quality of the individual sites varies quite a bit, but all of them are pretty decent. But there's one big problem--as you can see from the photo, there's a wastewater treatment plant between the loops right in the middle of the campground! The plant's motors/generators are very noisy and run 24 hours a day (watch the video). It's especially loud if you're camping in sites 82 - 100. We had to use earplugs to sleep at night. If you want to enjoy some peace and quiet, reserve a site on one of the other loops. Otherwise, we had no complaints. The staff was friendly and there are lots of hiking and kayaking opportunities.
We hiked out to the Backcountry site only to find someone there. We made a reservation days in advance, so this person was not supposed to be there. They weren't at the site for us to ask to leave, nor did we really feel comfortable doing so as two women. From the looks of the set up, it appeared as if the camper may be living there. The site is nice, but they clearly do not monitor who's there.
