Our truck had some mechanical issues, so we decided to use the reserved campsite and tent camp...the hottest weekend of the year! The campground was very nice and well maintained. Each site had concrete drive and a nice tent pad. There's not very much shade, and we had one of the more shaded spots next to the woods. The nights were cool and we had wild turkeys come through our campsite twice. This was our first visit to the park and we'll be back. We had to use the restroom facilities and there were a few simple things that needed fixing, like the hook in the shower came unattached and my towel fell on the ground. Loved the park, great hiking and found a great waterhole to cool off! We camped at site 61.

This park was very well maintained, neat and clean. The beach is absolutely beautiful and not crowded at all. There are two beach access points from the campground and we used both, but the access point near site 9 is much easier to use and provides a wide walkway all the way to the beach, showers and a bike rack. The access near site 35 is more of a nature walk to the beach, beautiful and worth the visit, but we had a cart and bikes, so the first was the best for us. Our site, no.110 was nice and shaded and one of the more private sites, but we had to pull closer to the center of the site leaving less room under our canopy, because of the right side was unlevel. There is a great walkway called "alligator alley" by Atalaya that we only discovered by following a Segway tour. The natural areas and interesting and provided great photo ops. I had read reviews on how bad the mosquitoes were, but we didn't experience that at all. The ants however were horrible....they were everywhere in our camper. We travel with a 17 lb dog and she had a great time playing on the beach, which she was able to do all day if it wasn't too hot. Sites 103 - 133 are the much more wooded sites in the campground. We can't wait to come back! This place is a gem!

I was impressed with this campground. The only problem we had was that the water connection was stripped and spayed water all over the ground and the camper. We ended up only turning it on when we needed it. Our campsite, B004, was a nice size and very wooded. The site was also very level. There were quite a few campsites on the water that would be great for when we want to tie up our boat overnight. There is a nice beach, and the boat ramp we used was very convenient. Campers can park their boat and vehicles overnight by the boat dock.

This was an awesome campground. We were very happy with the large shady sites. Our site # 82 felt very private even though it was pretty close to the bath house. This is a great park with lots to do. The camp hosts were friendly and kept a good eye on things, but not too intrusive. Our site was ADA accessible and we choose it because it had a paved park area. The bathrooms were okay. What you expect from a state park. Dump area was easily accessible with potable water.
