This is our second stay at this park as we have a toy hauler and ride ATV's. The access to the 72,000 acres it very convenient. The park has become a bit worn and the staff has not kept up with general maintenance since out last stay two years ago. The rest rooms were not clean on this trip and the showers were so so. I would stay here again only becasue of the great off road riding the park has.

Date of Stay:

It has been two years since the last time we stayed here and they have made some major upgrades to the bath houses. The campground service is always excellent and the grounds are always ultra clean. The kids play ground could use an upgrade. The sad part was my kids always played in the creek right behind the site that is not permitted anymore. There was two access area to the creek now and not in eye site from our spot.

Nice place to stay in Byson City and great tubing on Deep Creek in the National Park. It has been a few years since we stayed her and they have made a few upgrades to the park. The night sky was spectacular and friendly staff made this a nice place to stay. We would stay her again.

Date of Stay:

We stopped here for a one night stay and for 54 dollars a night it was not worth it. Indoor and outdoor pool was nice but 54 dollars a night for a overnight stay was was too much. Check-in was okay. Site was gravel and not level and there was the smell of raw sewage in the air. Do not think we will stay in this park again and there are a few other options in the area which we have used in the past and much better price and quality.

Date of Stay:

We use this park as a one night stop over from Florida to North Carolina and then back home. Easy on off from I75. Clean friendly staff and great pool and spa area for kids and adults. We use this campground each year because its just a great place to stop for the night.

Great place to swim and snorkel in the springs and river. Since the campground remodel a few years ago the brush and trees are growing in nicely and most sites have become private or semi private. This campground is always clean and staff is always great. Just wish they would fix the pool.

Just like so many Florida State Parks it's in disrepair. The bathhouse in the Magnolia loop was nasty. Showers were filthy, toilets backing up and filthy, the rest of the boathouse just nasty. The campground needs an upgrade. There is also a tick issue so dog owners beware and also watch yourself. Positive, staff was nice and spring and trails were awesome.

The last time we stayed here was 2007. There has been some updates in the campground like sewer connections and 50 amp but this was the only thing that kept me from rating lower than a 5. The rest of the park is falling apart though. The aquarium was closed. The beaches are in need of work at both Cannon beach and Far beach. The wooden bridge to Far Beach looked like it was about to fall into the bay. The boardwalks and observation tower were closed due to disrepair. Loud music after quiet time was not uncommon and not a park employee in site to address this. The smaller bathhouse in the campground needs updating. We will not return and its sad because this place has so much potential.

This park has changed over or is the process of becoming a KOA. The pool was awesome. Being able to ride an ATV from the park to Ocola OHV area was awesome. Grass sites are somewhat level and bathhouse was clean. They need to get firewood and a better stocked camp store. This park is far from anything so bring what you need. The WiFi was useless but I did have a weak ATT signal. I would stay here if I was riding an ATV but other than that unless you fish its limited.

I am not a big KOA fan because of other experiences at KOA's. I picked this because of the location and indoor, year round pool for the kids. The place was empty for the most part because of winter. The sites are close and I could see in peak summer season this place would get crowded. The staff was great. We had prepaid but had to leave a day early because of pending weather and they offered a refund. The grounds were clean and well kept and it is located in a beautiful location in the mountains. I would use this location again but only in off season.

Great place for an overnight stop. Clean park that is close to the interstate. I did not hear the road but my wife said she could. Night check in was good with a list of what was available. Would use these place without hesitation for a overnight stopover.

Date of Stay:

I take the kids to ride ATV's here. If possible: do not use the bathhouse. They are never clean. Its not a place to go unless your going to be riding off road. Would I stay here again? Yes but it's because of the riding, and that's all.

Date of Stay:

Great place to camp and ride ATV or off road motorcycles. The staff is outstanding and they are always making improvements.

Date of Stay:

The springs are so refreshing and just beautiful. The campground has nice tree cover and spacing between sites. The water pressure was good and 30 amp electric worked fine. The bath house is old and dated, but I was told they are getting ready to update this park. These updates will make this a real gem. Deer would come right into the campground.

Date of Stay:

Nice wooded sites with lots of shade. Staff and security was friendly and helpful. Nice enclosed pool and club house area. The only thing which kept me from making it a 10 was the bathrooms where few and spread out, this park is very large. There was also a small park in Crystal River with a spring and swimming area which was very nice and refreshing and free. We will be back.
