No security which is surprising for a county park; the road meanders through residential area and at the end you go right for the day use area, left for the campground. No gate, but the bathroom has a code-entry lock & you are advised to keep everything locked when you are away from your site. Very shady but no screening between sites. WiFi was good at my site #4. Major grocery store 2 miles away. Lots to do in the area but of course the main attraction is canoeing or kayaking on the Chassahowitzka River. It's beautiful with lots of wildlife. A bit pricy if paying by the day $33, but by the month it's a good deal at $389.

Rustic park with shady sites under native live oak trees that do drop a lot of leaves. No screening between sites but park was not crowded. The only reason to be in this area is to canoe or kayak the Ichetucknee River, which is a fabulous jewel that should not be missed. The campground has reasonable rates to take you to the beginning of the river & pick you up at the end; they will also do the same on the Santa Fe River. Getting dropped off at the campground after a day of paddling is priceless. If you want fancy or don't want to be on the river, no point coming to the area.

Date of Stay:

Low price for Escapees members includes 30 amp, water & sewer hookups. Located 1.3 miles from I-75 and traffic noise can be heard, but OK for overnight. Helpful staff. Mostly open sites. Planned activities for seniors but apparently the snowbirds have mostly departed by April.

Date of Stay:

Shady sites with native vegetation screening between neighbors. Ours was one of the sites upgraded to 50 amp service, a nice plus. Lots of hiking & biking trails. Close to I-75 but no traffic noise. Not far from Gainesville so good Verizon & OTA TV signals. Bargain price for what you get.

Date of Stay:

A very nice, quiet state park. Campsites have good screening for privacy. There is an older but clean bath house. Long walk from the campground to the kayak launch so it's best to rent from the nearby canoe rental / haul back firm. The main hiking trail is also far at about a 3 mile drive to trail head. Good Verizon signal. Will return.

Date of Stay:

Sites are fairly open but with plenty of space between neighbors. Fundy NP itself is amazing and this campground is ideally located. We had solid WiFi at our site near the check-in.

Date of Stay:

Absolutely beautiful campground with spacious, shady pull-through sites. On the gorgeous Gulf of St. Lawrence. Sublime.

Date of Stay:

Wide open sites on Trans-Canada highway so road noise is a constant presence. Fine for an overnight stop but sites are very close together with minimal spacing and no vegetation for privacy. There is a beautifully landscaped and maintained trail to Bras d'Or Lake. If only the camp sites had similarly thoughtful landscaping.

Date of Stay:

Delightfully rustic park in dramatically beautiful location. Sites are widely spaced and mostly shaded. Price reflects full EWS hookups. Very short walk to Information Center of the national park where Wi-Fi is available. Adjacent to the Cheticamp River, two of the park's hiking trail heads are in the campground. CG is on the Cabot Trail yet only 5 miles to town.

Date of Stay:

Very accommodating owners. Park was mostly full yet we got a shady pull-through near a Wi-Fi hotspot as requested. Close to Halifax so worth the price for us.

Date of Stay:

Campground is close to 101, so great access to Digby and area points of interest. Mostly seasonal campers who have built decks next to their trailers. Very quiet with not many people there during the week, though it must be busier on weekends. Very helpful owners gave us great recommendations on where to get fresh seafood. We had a shaded pull-through site with strong Wi-Fi signal. Highly recommended if in the area for a short stay.

County park has a great staff. Clean & uncrowded. No screening between sites, so if the park were full neighbors would be uncomfortably close. Great biking trails. One mile hike to the Suwannee, or paddle down the Otter Spring run. Price reflects buy 6 nights get 1 free; next time I will join Escapees for 50% discount.

Date of Stay:

Rustic is the key word. Vintage also applies. Restrooms were dirty the weekend we were here but with dirt/sand roads and sites that is going to happen. Most sites are close to each other and have little screening so not much privacy. Nice and shady though. Verizon signal very weak with 1/2 bar of "o"...not enough to load weather maps or even make reliable voice calls. Note to paddlers: Manatee Spring run is very short and closed in winter; can walk to the Suwanee but it's a quarter mile wide and dominated by power boats & wind.

Date of Stay:

Excellent campground for paddlers. It's an easy 1/3 mile or less carry from campsite to put-in, or drive to within 100 yards. Campsites are huge though as others have noted, most are not shaded. The perimeter site have good native vegetation to screen between sites, and some have partial shade. All facilities were top notch. Good Verizon signal.

Date of Stay:

Great park in suburban Orlando that is loved to death. Facilities are good considering location so close to Disney, Kennedy Space Center, and other attractions. CG is a mile from the spring so no day use people around. Shady sites with good distance between neighbors though not much screening vegetation.
