Lovely campground

This stage park has lots to offer - great trails for hiking and biking, boat launches, fishing, or just relaxing. We stayed at site #43 which has water/elec. hookup, dump station near by. All of the sites seemed level, most are quite private with a fair amount of trees/foliage in between sites, have a sizable picnic table and nice fire ring with grate. We were here in February and we had no problems with bugs. The bath house was very clean and modern, with spacious shower stalls and plenty of hot water. Just up the road from Citrus Showcase if you are looking for oranges and other goodies. A great find - We would love to go back when we can stay longer!

We loved it!

We came in the beginning of February (8-11th) which seems to be a popular time due to the rarity of available spaces, but we were able to reserve online right after Christmas and got a block for three nights. Good time of year to come - not yet too humid, no bugs at all, warm days. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was in our area. No parties going on or crazy loud families which seem to be our camping destiny of late (people don’t seem to know how to behave when they are camping). Seemed to be a more adult crowd, retirees, couples and friends who enjoy being outside. If you like to fish, kayak, or just hang out on the beach, this is a perfect place to relax. Our site was spacious, deep, and lots of privacy as there was a good amount of foliage between us and the neighbors. One warning, however, we noticed poison ivy in the wooded areas, just beware if you have kids or are susceptible yourself. Gave it four stars instead of five due to that and the outdated bathrooms. They suffice, but have a bad layout. The showers are okay, but there is no private changing area. You step out of the shower into a common changing area. Not much space to put your stuff in the shower. They are cleaned often, but there is no humidity control so it’s always damp and slippery in there. There are two washers and dryers at each bathroom location, $1.75 each and do a good job. If you need quarters, go to the camp store as there are no change machines near the laundry areas. Overall a nice place, easy to get to, not too far from other stuff, great beaches.

Site 82

Beautiful site very close to bathrooms/showers and gorgeous views.

However, be super weary of rats and raccoons (possibly rabid). PLEASE DO NOT FEED THEM.

Who knew? Check it out!

Situated right off of rout 27, a very busy 3 lane state road and not too far from Disney Parks is Lake Louisa State Park. This wasn’t on our initial“A” list of parks to hit as it is a little too close to Orlando for our tastes and driving on I-4 with a trailer is sometimes less than enjoyable, but the Covid has changed some of that. The roads were surprisingly open for a weekend“in-season”. This was definitely an under promise and over deliver weekend in spite of the overcast and rainy weather. 

The campground is situated between two lakes, Dixie and Hammond. Lake Louisa is much larger but quite a distance from the campground. With three loops, the campground is quite large but didn’t seem as big as it was. The park also offers really nice cabins overlooking the lake on a hill as well as what they call“care free camp sites” which is a modern form of Glamping. I have a few pics attached. 

We are not theme park people but if I was this would be a great way to do it in either a cabin or tent and a day trip to the park. The campground also has Canoe/Kayak rentals and a small store with essentials including ice and firewood. 

The park is in Claremont which is a bedroom community to Orlando so the park sees quite a bit of“day trippers” from Tampa, Lakeland and Orlando as it should. The hiking is great, you can also horseback ride and the biking is really great too. The park has quite a bit of topography for a Florida State Park which tend to more or less flat so the cycling looked really good. Next time we’ll bring our road bikes in addition to my OneWheel and Canoe. 

All the sites looked pretty good. We were in the third loop in site #43 which was on the inside and next to the bath house but with enough buffer space you didn’t notice anybody at all. We commented that we should have brought laundry as it would have been really convenient.

Lots to do at this Florida State Park with an overall good vibe for sure. Don’t let the proximity to a rather large population fool you, it is great place to visit!

A lovely state park

Really enjoyed our stay here, good size lot, #10, with electric, water, picnic table and fire ring. Clean dump station. Natural trees providing privacy between lots. A lot of walking trails for people and horses. A surprise was the amphitheater. Washers and dryers are located outside the bathrooms. Friendly hosts and other campers. Would came again.

Beautiful views!

If you want a very clean park, lots to do like kayaking, sandy beaches, short island excursions with picturesque views, then this is the place! It’s very hard to get a reservation for a reason. It’s more expensive for a reason. Just wat h out for the raccoons as they will steal the food out of your hands if you let them, they are not scared of anything.

Nice trails and river

There were not a lot of things to do here beyond hiking and boating. The campground was small with about 30 sites, dispersed. Three pavilions for when people can have gatherings again. Tampa is not too far away, but the park is kind of removed.

Florida best with awesome views.

E.G. Simmons is superb place to enjoy camp for a quiet time or with family and friends. Very spacious and variety camp sites to choose from. Clean grounds including bathrooms and staff are the friendliest,kindest people.

Nice campground but RACOONS EVERYWHERE

We enjoyed our one night stay here outside of St. Petersburg! Secluded from town but not too far! The waterfront sites looked beautiful, especially if you have a kayak or paddle board to use! We stayed on the other side where the trail wraps all the way around for biking or walking. I do have to mention there seems to be a big critter problem here, raccoons kept us up for a good part of the night. I usually don’t mind wildlife but they seemed a bit rabid and aggressive, I was afraid to use the community garbages they had placed every 30 feet!

Simple, convenient

We only booked for a night, were unaware of the no gathering firewood rule so had to grab some alternatives from Publix. Was used to primitive camping so didn't consider it may be different. So be prepared, and research ahead. Other than that was pretty.
