I really appreciated having the separate tent area, which always makes for a quieter camp. The sites are right on the water and have a nice breeze. There are a few trees spread about, but definitely not a lot of shade or privacy. But even a holiday weekend, the tent sites were not all full when I…

This place is amazing. We had started to lose hope that campgrounds like this still exist, but apparently they do.
It’s gorgeous. It’s clean. It’s peaceful. It’s free! What else could you possibly want.
There are a lot of gators in the river, so swimming is a no go however.
There is no…
Green forest on Pine Mountain, this campground is well laid out and has history. Several projects done by the CCC. 40 miles of trails to hike/bike. A CCC built pond where you can rent paddle boats or bring your own kayak or canoe. Equestrian trail rides (and stable rentals) are available. …
The campground only has a little over 20 sites, keeping the whole place nice and on an intimate scale, especially if you are able to snag one of the lake-side campsites, which have nice lake breeze and beautiful views. The park is an important sacred site (I suggest visiting the mounds at sunrise),…

We go often and enjoy camping at FDR. The kids love going also.
Beautiful campsites with lots of space between sites. Water and electric, with nice level sites. The lake was nice for kayaking...paddle boats, canoes, row boats and kayaks available to rent.

Absolutely love this place. Super easy to find, you just go down a red clay road. There’s plenty of sites up close to the pond, fire pits everywhere, picnic tables, clean garbages. The trooper came by in the morning and cleaned the bathrooms and changed the garbages. Overall this place is so clean…

Here for two days anf it's beautiful. Kayaked in the lake, saw turtles, a northern water snake and lots of squirrels and birds. Kids fished, but they only caught a turtle which was unhooked and returned to the lake...hopefully a little wiser.
Free. Found a good spot with a view of the water. Watched the alligators and birds on the water. Was able to easily launch a canoe as there is a boat ramp. Vault toilets were available. Picnic table, fire ring, and grill at each campsite.
The park is relatively small but it’s very well kept. Small rigs can pretty much enjoy any spot but larger rigs need to be sure that the site is level for the length of the rig. Some spots have a driveway that goes downhill from the camper and others go uphill from the camper which might be an…
Love this campground. Our site, #102 , was level, but kinda short for our 40ft camper. Clean bathhouses, friendly staff! Our site overlooked the lake, nice breeze. Trails are nice, long walks through the woods.
We wanted to try to get in other sites, had to plan almost a year out. This park…
Site #89, nice level site with shade. The other sites nearby are very close so no a lot of privacy.
Campground was very busy with swimmers, fishermen, boats and jet skis. Not like the state parks I have camped.
Beautiful campground. Sparking bathrooms and friendly staff. The ladies at the reservation office are fantastic. The lake is beautiful and the grounds are well maintained. FDR is a great home base for exploring the area.

This is a beautiful campground. Very wooded, beautiful pine trees. Camp sites are spacious. Drawback was that some sites had alot of water on them and in them. Lots of low lying areas in the park and some campsites so, during rain it's gets very wet and can have alot of standing water. Bathrooms…

We had a great time here. Nice large site. Biking was great, good hills a little hard on these novice riders 🤣 there was also a bike trail just outside the gate that was paved and Paralleled a roadway...several geocaches. The city of Auburn was close and beat too. Drank milkshakes on the lawn…
