Great amenities, lots to do, close to everything

Great campground with lots to do. Pool is opened during the day with lifeguard. Lake is great to sit by or take a boat. Have to rent it from them, unable you take your own. They have nightly campfires that are Disney themed, Chipmunks. They have lots of paved areas that you can walk or ride bikes or rent a golf cart. They also have things like pool games and archery classes along with horse back riding. They are also on the Disney transportation line so it's free to take a bus around campsite or to Disney parks. Only downside is this place is big so walking to some areas can be daunting unless you have bikes or golf cart. The sites are the cleanest you can have but they come at a price. Unless it's slow season pricing for an rv site can cost over $80 a night. They have tent and pop up sites at a lower cost then you have full sites for travel trailers and bigger rvs and then there is also premium sites that are bigger and also closer to the main areas.

Great Camping and Kayaking

Great Camping with well maintained sites. Lots of animals like deer, raccoon, armadillos, alligators and manatees. Definitely snakes but that's everywhere. Sites vary in sizes but pricing is very decent. They have renovated bathrooms and showers. They have kayak rentals and the springs are great for swimming, snorkelling and diving. They also have a boat dock that can offer tours of the river. During winter months you can see plenty of Manatee and even kayak in the water with them. Highly recommended you try kayaking at least one. There are also walking trails and most of them are good for mountain bikes. Overall it's a great state park with many things to do. Great to go with a group of campers to enjoy fires at night and the springs during the day.
