Only cave in Florida where you can take a tour. I love caves and this was a great tour I was very surprised of the extent of this cave in Florida. There was some pretty good hiking trails and the campground was small but decent. There's a waterway that runs by the campground you can go kayaking.
This is a small campground. Most sites had shrubs between sites so semiprivate. Bathrooms were clean and good hot showers. Good trails through park. Lake area to swim. Waterfall was good size when we went but it depends on rainfall and water levels. Water flows from waterfall into sinkhole. Great little camp everybody was very friendly here. Not far from interstate so there was a good variety of stores if needed.
This is a great music venue. The sites are extremely close together and very open. They do have equestrian camping. Our site had full hookups water electric and sewer. There is a bar and restaurant on site with live music which was great. There is a swimming pool, a treehouse and cabins you can rent, a fully stocked camp store, golf cart rentals. There are some permanent units for full-time living in this park. Park is very large and known for music festivals.
We stayed is site number 28. The sites are rather small and are equipped with table, fire ring, separate grill, clothesline, and some have hammock posts. Sites are gravel. All are full hook up with water, electric, and sewer. Bathrooms were great well stocked and very clean, hot water. Trash gets picked up daily from your site. There are many many trails to walk in this area. The campground has a great boardwalk trail that goes down to a Beach area and the river. There is also a parking area and boardwalk and Beach for day-use visitors. The river is excellent here it is dark clear water with white sandy banks. This park was immaculate everyone was so friendly you can tell they took pride in this park. There was a lot of rain when we went so river levels went way up. We launched kayaks from campground beach but there is also a boat ramp not far. This park is relatively small compared to others. There is not much in area. 30-45 minutes to Pensacola. Dollar general and Piggly wiggly grocery not far from park. Outfitter close to rent kayaks and shuttle on river.
This is my favorite Florida State Park so far. Sites are small. Some are very shallow. There is plenty of greenery between sites. Camp road and sites may be difficult to maneuver into. Sites are dirt and have table, fire ring, and lantern post. Tomoka Outpost is a very cool store. They sell local items, souvenirs, have their own special beer brewed for them, bait, and regular camping items. The area around the Outpost is awesome. There are places to sit and enjoy a beer and snack and enjoy the view. The park has only 1 mile hiking trail but there plenty of places to walk around. I cannot say enough good things about this park. I was so surprised. Park is located off 1-95 and 10-15 minutes to plenty of stores and restaurants. There are many areas to fish and kayak in park. I launched my kayak from campground and paddled around quite a bit. It was an easy paddle. Saw lots of birds and an otter. There is a lot of history surrounding the park.
Stayed site #48 on dogwood loop. Sites were on the small side. Magnolia loop sites looked better and larger. Bathrooms were centrally located and clean. There are many trails to walk in this park. We did some fishing on the river. You can launch kayaks and paddle santa fe river which is excellent! Sites include table, fire ring/grill. Park is within 10-15 minutes to grocery and restaurants. Park has some great info on the CCC. With a small museum.
The main feature is the lake. Fishing, boating, kayaking, swimming. Stayed at site #12. Waterfront excellent view of lake but sunny site. Sites had water, electric, concrete table, fire ring, and lantern hook. Not much barrier between sites but sites were good size just open. Everyone was very friendly. During week it was relatively empty but on Friday the campground started to fill up. Sites in the 60-90 loop looked the best with water views and shade and most were pull through. The bathrooms were ok and there is a laundry room. The bathrooms were quite far from some sites requiring a long walk or drive. Park had a great store selling souvenirs, ice, firewood, worms for fishing. Campground staff and host were very friendly. Not much around outside park. There was a dollar general about 12 miles away for supplies. You could pull your boat up to your waterfront campsite. They also have kayak rentals.
This lake was beautiful. Great views of lake and mountains. The water was warm in October. Site #27 was good. Some sites were unlevel and on a steep grade and close with minimal greenery between. The walk-in tent sites were excellent. All sites had table, fire ring, lantern hook, and a gravel tent pad in addition to paved site. Most of the sites were shaded. Bathrooms were good with a big laundry area. There weren't really any paths to bathroom so it would be difficult in the dark if you were further away. We took a waterfall boat tour which was excellent. There are several paths to get to lake from different spots in campground. Which are like a private beach area. This park/campground is very busy on weekends but Sunday night it emptied out. Bring your boat, floats, kayaks, canoes. There is not much in area outside park. There was a Dollar General store within 15 minutes. The park store was well stocked with many items. Park staff were not that friendly. There are several boat ramps in park. Divers also use this lake since the lake is clear.
This area has so many hiking trails. Trails and waterfalls. This park is the highest point in Alabama. We went MLK weekend it was busy but by Monday we had the campground to ourselves for 4 days. Great trails and waterfalls. Trails are easy to difficult. Bathrooms and showers are separate which was kind of nice to have a whole single room for each shower. Camp store was well stocked. Nearest store was 30-45 min away. Park has a lodge, restaurant, cabins, and a motel. We stayed in upper campground but there is a lower campground closer to the small lake. Alabama is finally putting money back into the parks and remodeling and improving areas. Camp sites are open and some are rocky. The views at the park are amazing!!! This is one of my favorite places!!
This was a great state park. Sites are close together and not much barriers between. Bathrooms were clean, good hot shower. Plenty of wildlife to see. Alligators, birds, wild hogs, deer, and more. If you are a bird lover this is a place you should stop. Hiking, fishing, kayaking, plenty to keep you busy. They have an observation tower and suspension bridge. Park is not far from beaches or city of Sarasota. We stayed 5 days could of stayed longer. Park is busy on weekends, not so bad during week. Park staff were very friendly and helpful.
sites were semiprivate. bathhouse was very clean and great HOT shower. small swimming area. creek to kayak on goes past campground. we actually stayed on creek side site. the creek was a pleasant easy kayak trip without going out if park. park is also close to beaches, restaurants,and other activities.
