Everything You Want, Easy to Access

We spent a night in Little Manatee River State Park, and were pretty happy with how easy it was to access the trails, canoe launch, playground and bathroom. We’ve spent time at various state parks and sometimes the trailhead is so far from camp it takes longer to get there than it does to hike it (exaggerating here but you know what I mean!). We could easily access all that we needed to keep busy, and better yet, took advantage of it!

Tons of birds, butterflies and great views of the stars. Few tent campers but still, everyone was respectful and quiet. We will definitely be back once the cooler months come around again!

Just a few spots but nice

Need a reservation, there are just a handful of sites. Each has a fire ring and a table. Locked gate (you need a code they give you in your reservation confirmation) dirt road, easily accessible by motorcycle/car. Supermarket and several restaurants just across the main road. There is a bathroom, but we never went in. There is also equestrian camping across the road. Lots and lots of hiking options in this huge area White tee, on the map, shows where campground is, the rest is hiking trails. 4 instead of 5 only because there is no potable water.

Nice, went with friends

Loved the hiking, huge pool (closed due to cover though) will go back.  Hiking along the river almost forgot we were even in Florida :-)


Went with family members - love hikes with dogs

Love this place

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.

Large camping / great location

Large campsite with privacy. Very good option in the Tampa Bay

Beautiful campground

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.

Gator Hole Backcountry Site - Incredible!

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!

Nice park, not so great site (but others are!)

Have waited six months into our RV life to start reviews for fair comparisons. Spent 4 nights. Really liked this park, but not our site. Was bordered by the camp road and the bike/walking path so often noisy with no sense of privacy. Bad mosquitoes, but to be expected. And our only site in six months that had noticeable litter- food waste, random trash, etc. On the positive side, we did have a resident armadillo who visited every night and provided hours of entertainment. The sites on the outside of the loop looking out into nature, even right across the road, looked wonderful! And honestly, we were grateful we could even get in during the holiday season with fairly late booking. Good walking/“hiking”/running trails around the park. Good for dog walking. Loved the day use area and water views. Great day trips into Sarasota and nearby beaches. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the drag racing across the street.

Wonderful hospitality

We stopped in to rent kayaks not realizing that they also had sites for camping and RVs. We enjoyed our 3 hour kayak trip and then they very kindly found us a spot to stay for the night. We honestly didn’t want to leave. We hope to be back next trip and book in advance. Very relaxing place, shaded sites
