O'Leno State Park, High Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This park was created by the CCC in the late 1930's, and has since been updated with water and electric. At least four sites have 50 amp service for larger rigs. Dump station is easy to get to on the way out located far enough away so odors are not noticed in the camp sites. Dumpster also located there. Sites are more suited to tents, pop-up or travel trailers because it is necessary to dodge trees while parking in the site. The entire campground is heavily wooded providing well shaded campsites. Site improvement is in process, but will probably remain a more rustic type of area with dirt roads and packed sand/gravel driveways.

Because it is a smaller park and wooded, it is relatively quiet. We enjoyed hiking, bird watching and just being outdoors. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The old CCC bunkhouse is part of the small museum located in the park. A nature trail leads to the sink hole where the river disappears. Ranger led walks are available during certain times.

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Large state park with spacious campsites. Some well shaded and some in the sun. We like to stop there because it is close to I-75 making nice stop-over that has nice clean restrooms and showers. Laundry to boot, so we can arrive home without that chore facing us. The Carillon - world's largest tubular bell - plays Stephen Foster songs on the hour. The Stephen Foster Museum is a "must see", too. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Many Stephen Foster attractions available within the park. The original cistern is located just outside the park. Canoe rentals are available just outside the park, too.
