Fabulous location in the lower keys. Hard to get a reservation and easy to understand why. Native plants provide screening between sites. The entire island is the state park so security is a given. Kayaker's paradise, great beaches, dark skies for star gazers. Relish the days you are able to spend here.

Date of Stay:

If you want to stay in an urban area, Markham is a decent choice. Sites vary a lot; fortunately ours had good screening for some privacy between sites. Noisy all the time because it's near I-75 & I-595, adjacent to a canal favored by jet ski users, and has a popular target shooting area. Our site D5 had solid Wi-Fi.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful state park with lots of outdoor activities. Short walk to kayak launch on Largo Sound with mangrove trails and access to the ocean. Swimming and snorkeling a slightly longer walk away. On the down side, campsites are fairly narrow with minimal screening between sites. It's Florida's most popular state park so expect a LOT of day-use people, especially on weekends.

Date of Stay:

Good screening between site so not for big rigs unless you are OK getting paint scratched & not using slides. Sites deep & narrow. Paradise for kayakers; less than 1/4 mile to launch on Estero River then 4.5 miles to Estero Bay & Gulf of Mexico. Campground well back from US41 so minimal traffic noise. Delightful overall.

Date of Stay:

Great find just a mile off the Natcher Parkway. Not crowded. Friendly, helpful camp host was very accommodating. Splash park and playground for the kids. Equine facilities. Less than 30 miles from Owensboro. Price was for level site with 50 amp & water; dump station nearby.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

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.
