Seven lakes and lots of places to walk and/or camp! .

Mostly for RV camping but has a few cabins by the water and some even floating cabins on the water! Great place to take your kids fishing, biking, paddle boating, or just relaxing. Has lots of ducks to feed and saw quite a few people catching fish. Great place to hang out for the day or camp overnight.

Everyone had a blast!

Awesome place with a beautiful lake! Lots of playgrounds for the kids and some very nice camping spots!

Pretty place!

Drove through the grounds looking for some nice tent camping spots while stationed down in the area. Sites seemed nice enough but more like a parking lot than anything. Not bad. Fun for the kids!

Went in search of Gators!

Went hiking along the trails and found 3 baby gators hanging out! Had a few good tent spots and lots of RV spots. Just watch out where you swim!

Right on base!

Perfect for those days where you want to camp and hang out on some beautiful beaches! Warm turquoise waters and tons of history just steps away! Check out the National Aviation Museum or the old forts from long ago! Or just hang out and watch the Blue Angels practice! Not a bad place to be!

Very pretty!

Drove around to check out the scene. Definitely some nice tent and RV spots. Nice views of the lake!

Perfect for watching the bioluminecent algae!

Took the family out here to check out the blue glowing algae and they loved it. Went swimming a few other times. Can see some dolphins in the water and it has some great shells along the beach!

Amazing views of the bay!

Nice marina right nearby! Went for a quick check on some camping sites near us and it was very pretty for sure.

Nice views!

Took the family to the playground up here. Nice little place. Looked like it had a splash pad but it wasn't operating when we went.

Beautiful view.

Haven't done the camping there but the kids loved the trails around the lake. Nice little playground and a pretty garden at the entrance. Definitely nice for a day trip!

Great place to hike and camp!

Took the family out hiking through the area looking for new camping spots. Looked great and had some nice trails. Great general store and a diner right up the road.

First to Review
Pretty views!

Definitely a bit out of the way but very pretty! Bring some bug spray, a boat, and some fishing gear! Has spots right on the water to camp!

Awesome waters!

Not sure if we got any younger but it was an awesome experience swimming around the springs!

Took the family and they loved it!

Went through the boardwalk and saw a ton of wildlife! No manitees since the water was a bit cold at the time but had beautiful walkways and scenery. Awesome place!

Great hiking and canoeing!

Took the wife and kids through to test out our canoe. Everyone loved it. Wish we were closer to see it again. Loved the little sandy bends in the river. Should have brought my fishing pole!

Loved it!

Took the wife and daughter hiking through the area. Had some good walk in primitive camping areas right on the water. Lots some great canoe and kayaking spots. Definitely enjoyed the day trip!

Loved it!

Went here often for fishing with the kids! Had a great time walking the beaches and swimming. We would go down every Christmas and take pictures of the us on the white sand beaches for the family living in the north! Haha absolutely stunning year round!

Great history and beautiful area!

Amazing views from the boardwalks and trails! Not far from Spanish Fort and shopping. We did many hikes through the grounds with the kids and everyone absolutely loved it!

Beautiful and updated!

Lots of great camping, fishing, kayak rentals, and boat ramps. Beautiful pavilion for weddings and other gatherings. Lots of trails and awesome animal sightings! Took the dogs and kids here often and loved it!

Great day space!

Went up here for the snow last year and took the kids sledding! Everyone loved it! Great hills and decent campsites. Definitely popular in the summer!
