Road into the park is still quite rough in spots. Followed the ranger in so saw where to travel the road and not. Staff is friendly. Campsites are dirt, and most are shaded and level. The bathhouse is a bit dated, but clean. Hiking is easy and interesting. There is a large day area with pavilions, picnic tables, marina and boat ramp, and swimming. Watch for gators. You are in Florida. We saw the white squirrels, but not the deer. Some utilities are on the "wrong" side, so careful selecting a site if it matters.

Very nice park. Large, level, dirt/sand sites with corral fencing around each and shrubbery and space for privacy. All sites are shaded, 50/30/20 amp. Eight face the bayou. There are no pull-throughs. Friendly staff, family friendly park with 3 good hiking/biking trails, paved roads for biking, large day use area with exercise station trail. Facilities are very clean, updated and air-conditioned. Short drive to Niceville for supplies, etc. A lot to see in the area. Will return for a longer stay.

Very nice park. Friendly staff. Level, paved sites with wood deck, partial to full shade, most have good space/privacy. No pull-throughs, but lengthy sites. Plenty of paved roads for biking, lot of interesting boardwalk and sand hiking trails, excellent interactive nature center, fishing pond/dock, clean updated facilities, pavilions and shelters for camper and day use. Very clean, well maintained park and facilities. Good OTA tv, cell phone reception. The park also has tent camping, a large group camp building and cabins. Will return for longer stay. Highly recommend.

A smallish mom & pop rv park that is great for our overnight need. Would be good for a couple of days. The owner/operators are nice folks. Little or no shade, fairly level gravel/grass sites, FHU, some 50 amp sites, some 30. We got to choose our site once there. Have to look close for their entrance. Small sign. When you see the saw mill and a small restaurant start looking for the driveway across the road. There is a small trail and a catch/release pond. A few benches/tables by the water. The saw mill and highway do not create any big deal noise. Got a couple of OTA tv stations and the wi-fi and cell phone was good. Would not hesitate to come back or recommend.

Beautiful park and campgrounds. A lot of roads to bike on and 3 long trails to hike. Sites are shaded, some on Gum Slough, and the reservoir. The park is well maintained . The bath house in our loop (Hen House Ridge) was pretty bad. Other than that a nice park.

Date of Stay:

Spent one night here. Very friendly staff. Clean, well maintained park and facilities. Well laid out park squeezed between a school and a church with what appears to be 2 levels of sites: concrete and gravel sites and all gravel sites. Both good. Family park with pool, pavilion, work out area, pet area, miniature golf and store. Shopping nearby.

Stayed one night on trip west and stayed again on return. Very neat clean park east of Mobile. Quiet park, despite a little low level traffic noise from US 98 and distant I-10. Most sites are shaded. Lower number sites are pretty much full sun. Sites are asphalt and level. Full hookups. Vehicle washing is permitted. Bathhouse is like new. Very clean. Friendly staff. The park is well laid out. There is a neat boardwalk trail out into Ducker Bay and short trails in a wooded area. Fishing is available from a dock or boat. There is a small beach, but we saw gators, so maybe not a good thing. Two cabins and tent area. Close to Mobile and a great USS Alabama park with a submarine and an aircraft museum.

Stay one night or more this small park is great. Very quiet, relaxing, & clean. Sites are level, gravel & I'd say smallish for large Class A. We have a B. Perfect. Some overlook the river, most are full shade, rest are partly shade. Friendly staff. Facilities are dated, but kept clean. Fishing and boating available. Did I say quiet and relaxing?

Date of Stay:

Level, wide, sand/shell sites. Friendly, informative staff. Clean facilities and park. Quiet, quiet park, with miles of hiking/biking trails. Trails are mostly in the open prairie (wet and dry prairies) and a couple in a hammock. Good wildlife viewing: deer, caracara and turkies in campground. Birds, gators, wild pigs along trails and in sloughs. If you like night skies with no light polution this is the place to be. Florida's first Dark Sky park. There are 3 camping areas: family (standard site setup), equestrian (corral), astronomy (no trees). Excellent park, well maintained. We've been here several times in various months. Like late October, early November best.

Date of Stay:

Nice park. Staff and rangers friendly and helpful. Facilities clean and up to date. Plenty of hiking/biking trails. Great boardwalk along the spring to the river and around spring head. Sand/gravel loop roads could use some smoothing out. Good day visit facilities (playground, pavilions, picnic benches, grills) and a good concession with wi-fi. Canoe/kayak rentals, river tour available. Cell phone spotty. All sights look pretty level. Ours was perfect.

Renovations were recently completed to this park and it is nice. Paved loop roads, new and well kept bath houses. 50/30/30 electric. The sites are gravel and level. Some are close together and some not so. There are a few with privacy shrubs in between and all are shady to partially shady. Great staff! Maintenance and cleaning on going for your pleasure. There is a .9 mile nature trail into the marsh, a 3.5 bike/hike trail through the marsh and hammock and a 6.5 mile hike trail through a wet cypress swamp. There is also a boat ramp, playground and a couple of interesting historical things to see. Plenty to see and do or just rest and relax. The park was really quiet, despite being close to SR92. Little traffic. There is a tent specific loop and group camping area. There are ample paved roads to bike/walk, or do the bike trail.

Date of Stay:

Quiet, quiet quiet. Big park, 54000 acres, small shaded campground. Star-gazing and birding paradise. Over 100 miles of hiking/biking trails. Great staff. Clean facilities. There are two campgrounds: family and equestrian. The sites are shaded with level, packed dirt sites. Room between. 50 amp only in equestrian loop. 30 amp in family loop. Birds and deer wandered through the campground. Well into the prairie there is a group campsite.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park. Campground #1 is hilly and some sites are not too level, but all are partial to full shade. Most have ample space for privacy, but some not. Staff friendly. Campground #2 is a long drive from the main entrance and mountain top, but has a lake and more level sites. Great views from the mountain top, interesting CCC history and museum at the observation tower. Sunset is great at the restaurant. Small camp store, but best to get provisions and fuel before arriving.

Date of Stay:

Neat small, shaded park. Several miles of challenging hiking trails (elevation changes, rocks, roots). Sights are level packed sand. Some are close together, some have ample space and foliage for privacy. One yurt, one cabin. Staff is very friendly. Facilities are clean. Historic plantation house, Gregory House, is interesting tour and view of Apalachicola River. In the middle of nowhere. Nice. Well maintained.

Date of Stay:

Small, quiet place, convenient to Tallahassee even though out of town. Clean park, level sights. Several have lake view.
