Family friendly campground located amongst the palm fronds.

The campground is pretty standard state park material. Clean and easy to use. There is a good bit of foliage between sites so you're not sitting there seeing tents in every direction. There are some short trails and a splash pad area (water cannons, sprinklers, etc.) This is a great campground for families with young children! We fished, hiked, played at the splash pad and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Family friendly campground with lots of wildlife!

This campground is fairly large but it's split into smaller loops to cut down on traffic. There are picnic tables and fire rings at every site but they recently removed the trash cans due to a racoon problem. There is a large central dumpster available though. There are hiking trails, swimming options and nearby kayak/paddle board rentles. You will absolutely see deer, ducks, squirrel and racoons! These animals are abundant and used to campers so they will graze and wander near the tent sites. Because of the deer herd there is a thriving tick community. I know, ick. Just check yourself after every walk, or every 30 minutes. Yes, that frequently. The majority are small, what I've always heard called "seed" ticks. The ticks and the bath house are the only reason I'm giving 4 stars and not 5. Overall though, it's a great place to stay and I will continue to go back.

This is a smaller tent only campground located along the Ocoee River

The campground was very clean and well maintained. There is a bath house with showers and an area to hose off bikes as well. There's no approved place to wash dishes, the bath house and water pump both specifically say not to clean dishes in the area. My guess is this is due to the possibility of attracting black bears, there are several bear proof trash cans available for use. The campground backs up to the river and a really great hiking trail. There's no ranger station or check in, it's self filled envelopes or registering online.
