One of my favs

This was our 2021 Thanksgiving camp site(on the back end of Laura Walker right before this). This is an absolute gem of a park in the middle of nowhere! The swap is so cool, lots of gators to be seen while we did miles of paddling. There is some hiking too, but it was pretty wet from all the rain they got the week before. Sites are nice and spaced out and while it was a full campground it was very quiet. The camp store was very nice and offers canoe, kayak and motorboat rentals, along with some basic supplies, but remember to bring all your necessitates because it is over an hour out and back to town. Bathhouse was very clean, and all sites seem to have easy access. Most impressive is the stars at night- WOW! We will go back just for the night sky views. 

PROS: 

Quiet, remote camp in the middle of the swamp 

Amazing place to paddle and explore 

No cell service 

The stars at night are AMAZING! 

Miles from civilization 

CONS: 

Miles from civilization(so do not forget any essentials!) 

No cell service (no remote work option here)
