Nice small park. Outstanding for mountain bikers. 85 miles of trails, 3 levels of difficulty and free riding area. Paved loop, 25 level gravel sites, not too close, partial or no shade. Friendly staff. Close to Ocala.

Date of Stay:

Great park in any season. Clean facilities, great staff, well kept. Several trails to hike and bike, sand or hardtop. Observe wildlife, fish, swim and kayak the river. Museum and Nature Center are interesting. Cabins and two loops, Magnolia Loop next to river and day park. Level, sand sites with corral. Not close together, some have fhu. Old Town 12 miles away, but quick shop stores closer.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park and staff. If you like the beach, fishing, & boating you'll be happy here. There is also, hiking/biking trails and an abundance of shore birds. Seasonal you may see pilot whales and dolphin.

Date of Stay:

Excellent historic park. Facilities are excellent and a lot to do. The park has great biking and hiking in one area and great fishing and a great beach in another area. We stayed in the shaded river loop, but access to the beach is only a short drive. The fort tour, whether self-guided or guided by ranger is a must. We saw a lot of wild life.

Date of Stay:

Small campground, but a great place in the woods. Sites are shady, defined, not too close sand sites with 50/30/20 amp, water, sewage. Rangers and staff are friendly and helpful. Some real history here. Several great hiking trails from a half mile to 7 miles, paved roads and loops for biking. The river trail and the lime sink trail are both very good reasonable length hikes. Facilities and campground are first class and clean. Staff always busy keeping it nice. Five very nice cabins. Quiet campground the nights we were there. We did hear trains go by, but they are few pretty quiet and fast. No bother. Typical great Florida State Park.

Date of Stay:

As good as it gets. Excellent sites, the newest on the mountain top. Asphalt loop roads, level, gravel sites, some paved sites (with lawns). The store, restrooms, showers, laundry room and modem room are first class. The staff is as friendly as they come. This place only gets better with each visit. Close to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Date of Stay:

Shady dirt sites. Not too near others. 30/20 amp, water. Loop road a little rough. Keeps the speed down, thank you. Rangers and staff friendly and helpful. The hiking trails and Lake View campground were closed due to recent rain storms. The rest of the park was in great shape. Nice observation lounge on lake with wi-fi, good camp store. Small interesting museum. Paved roads for biking. Very nice state park. Cabins are excellent.
