Great place in the middle of nowhere

Ranked as an International Dark Sky campsite, this is one of the few in Florida that have this recognition. We came during a cloudy weekend but it broke one night for us to catch a glimpse of the Milky Way-beautiful. The campground itself is well maintained and peaceful. There are three sections for campers here: a family campground, an astronomy pad, and an equestrian site. We stayed in the equestrian area (you don’t need to have a horse to do so). Site 24 is right next to a new shower and bathroom house they added not too long ago. The facility is clean, and has four bathroom/hot shower combo stalls. There are more in the family campsite area. Hiking trails run through the area. The campground is far removed from civilization, so make sure you come prepared. The campground office sells ice, but that’s about it. Firewood is also available. Staff is very helpful and friendly, and they run tours on swamp buggy style OHVs out of the area as well.

Very nice and quiet, nice trails

Stayed here for a weekend in January 2019. Sites were nice and the area was very nice and seemingly secluded. Park was quiet at night. Lots of hiking trails and a paved trail. Kayak/ canoe launch. Great place for a weekend getaway. Restrooms are very sparse, however. Only one in the entire camping area, with only one stall in the men's, two in the women's and one shower each. If someone is sitting and watching podcasts on their phone when you need to get in there to take care of business, forget it (yes, that happened to me). Overall, I was happy with the sites. We were in site 6, which is very large and backs up to a large open grass area. Plenty of tree cover.

Great place, very scenic..

With great views of Stone Mountain, close to hiking and activities, and right on the lake, this campground is very nice. It has plenty of amenities and a friendly staff. Where it falls short is at some of the sites. The fire ring and grill at our site (410, loop O) were not placed well; we never used them. Grill was right by the road, and the ring was too far forward. Both items would be better placed at the back of the site. It was quite a walk to get to the restroom. But, the shower and restroom were always clean. They have a laundry as well; very convenient overall. We enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back.

Nice park, clean and great amenities

We stayed here in early November 2018. The shower and restroom facilities were very clean. It’s very crowded; we usually stay in more spread out campsites, but regardless it was very quiet at night. There is access to a beautiful beach, a fishing pier, and couple small stores for bait and odds and ends. Overall, very clean and nice for a weekend stay. We loved the variety of things available to us.

Quiet, beautiful and in a perfect setting

We tent camped here a couple times and loved every minute. The stars at night were incredible. This is a great basecamp for exploring Arches NP, but is a bit removed from the other Moab spots due to the long drive to get out of the park. There are clean flush toilets and drinking water, but no shower facilities. Lots of places to explore right from the campground itself.

Perfect Little Spot for a Getaway

Although in a populated area of Ocala, this campground is positioned in the trees and makes you feel like you are miles from civilization. The sites are spacious and most are shaded. We stayed in site #3, which was tucked into the wood line and somewhat private. Easy access to all the mountain bike trails, the paved Greenway trail, and the Florida Trail. All the trails and paths are located within the park. Restrooms were fairly clean, and the showers had hot water. We would come back here in a heartbeat.

Great for tent camping!

Great place for tent camping with a friendly staff and nice amenities. The campground sits on Oak Creek, and is in the perfect location where you are far enough away from Sedona city center to have some peace and quiet, and within an amazing setting of red rocks, tall pines and the sound of a creek surround you. The tent sites are spacious, and offer plenty of privacy. The campground has shower facilities, a small general store where you can get firewood and small groceries, and restrooms. The pit toilets are a bit nasty; I wish they would update them and make them a little cleaner and user-friendly…lol. They can get really disgusting and stink horribly during warmer weather. But the rest of the experience here makes the restrooms the least of the issues. We always stay here when in Sedona.

Great location and facilities, a little noisy though

I have tent camped here a couple of times in the past few years. The campground is clean and neat, and some sites offer great views of the lake and surrounding cliffs. It's a beautiful place to hang out at during sunset or sunrise. The shower and restrooms are clean, and the general store is nice and convenient. The laundry facilities are a nice place to get things cleaned up while you're on the road. The biggest problem I see with this area is the noise. A lot of the Wahweap workers live in an area of mobile homes above the campground, and they definitely like to party at night. A group of motorcyclists also thought it was a good idea to rev their Harleys up at 6 am one day. I am sure camping in and RV would isolate you from the noise, or maybe camping during a weekday would be better. Either way, I would stay here again. As for tent camping, some of the sites have zero shade, so be prepared with your own shelters. Just make sure you anchor them down; afternoons can bring some strong winds to the area.

One of the Best

Every time we are near Bryce, we stay here. The tent sites are spacious and you don’t feel right on top of the other campers. The scenery is beautiful and it is very quiet at night. The toilet facilities are clean and sanitary. Great spot to ride the Thunder Mountain Trail for mountain bikers. Easy access to Bryce Canyon NP.
