Gator Hole

This section of the FT is quite a nice walk, and I assume that most individuals looking at a site on the trail, are looking at Gator Hole. As far as backcountry campsites go, you really can't ask for much better than Gator Hole especially as a beginner, or a more leisurely camping group. It is only…

As Expected.

HBR State Park is what it is, as far as camping goes. The car campground is as expected from places like this. Lots of RV campers, sites that are quite close to each other, and rock-hard ground from being packed down by heavy vehicles day after day. If you plan on ground sleeping in the campground,…

Turkey lake

Nice campground close to Orlando attractions. Beautiful lake with great walking/biking trails. Sites were a nice size with paved driveways, that could be a little wider. The grass was overgrown and muddy around our site. Pool was also closed during our visit. Would come back again.

Nice but wet.

This was a very nice swimming and paddle boat park on the Hillsborough River when I was a kid.As a family we visited many times. Now everything is closed down except camping, hiking, canoeing if you bring your own. But still a nice place to camp. Better if not during rainy season here in…

Peaceful & Beautiful Spot

We got into this site with a last minute cancellation over Labor Day weekend. It was a beautiful location! We had site 43 which was secluded from neighbors and in full shade. The back of the site opened to an open field and we constantly saw deer walking through the grounds. We also saw many…

A Hideaway

First of all, locked gate. You have to make a free reservation to get the combination. I camped at the primitive side. At the fork bare right then immediately turn right. You'll see the Port-a-John. Port-John was clean with TP. But who doesn't carry TP with them. The grass needed to be cut, it was…

Beautiful,quiet and secluded sites

I live within a hours drive from this park and have been camping here for 40 plus years. This State Park is Old Florida, sites are secluded from the other sites compared to many other parks. There is a abundance of wildlife and plenty of hiking trails. This park to me is one of the best you will…

Great in city place

If you’re in the Tampa Bay area it’s a great place to camp it’s part of a much larger RV site.

Backcountry Site

Short hike in to site. Nice open and quiet area. Firewood was available for $5 for 6 pieces.

Perfect!

There are several trails crossing the river, paved and unpaved bike, walk, run trails, a ginormous swimming pool, a snack shop and equipment rental.  It's breath taking and has everything you could want.

Secluded and well maintained

This is reclaimed land from an old phosphate mine.

The mine was closed 20 years ago and the land was reclaimed and turned into a beautified park and campground. The trees have had time to mature. There are four lakes, campsites are located on one of the bigger lakes. Like all parks some site are…

Colt Creek Lakeland Fl

Well we didn't like the tent and RV sites. They're in an open area on gravel with no shade and hardly no divisions. There are other areas for special groups that are much nicer. But for individual campers. The equestrian area was the nicest to us. But you must have a horse to stay there.

Nice stop for a few days

Planty of amenities, not far from the beach ( 10'driving distance). Good WiFI.

Don't stay at spots WD2,3,4,5,6 as they are very muddy if you are caught in a rainy season.

Serene

We stayed at this location for 13 days. The bathroom was clean, there was a fire ban in place, but we had portable grills so utilized those. It is supposed to be alcohol free however on our 10th or 11th night there, there was a large group that arrived and were very loud and they were all drunk.…
