This place saved my buddy and I. Didn’t book ahead anywhere else in town and ended up stumbling into this little gem. Just beautiful spot. The bathrooms could have been better but the gorgeous scenery and safety made up for it. No one around at all, friendly staff when you needed and dirt cheap.
Sawgrass Recreation area primary businesses are airboat tours and petting zoo, however they have a small primitive campsite at the back as well. I was trying to ride my bicycle from Ft. Laudardale to South Bay, but the head wind was so strong that I was moving at a snail's pace. Luckily, this place is conviniently located just off the state route 27, an oasis of civilization on a 30 mile strech of nothingness. the camground is only open during dry season, which is late winter.
