Cabins were nice inside, also pet friendly. Unfortunately cabins are split in half, so no privacy. Not what you would expect from membership campground. The area where cabins are is extremely hilly, do not waste your time bringing bikes. 50 amp sites were the nicest in campground, newly paved. The other sites were unkept. Separate campground for the families with their own pool. Lots of road noise, just off I-85. We enjoyed the surrounding area.

This campground is Awesome.You would not think in the middle of Florida that you would have Deer & wild Turkey coming up to your camp site.This is a huge park. It seems like you will never get to the sites. Plenty of hiking and bike trails. We loved the Civil War era "Cow Camp", very informative. Lots of shade. Only draw back is the winding roads at sites with trees close to edge. I do not think big rigs will get by and did not see any there. Mac's fish camp up near entrance with boat rentals. Cypress Gardens about 30 minutes away if you take back roads. Ask the guard for directions.

The reason for a bad rating, is that this park received heavy damage from hurricanes in the past two years. The Pines Campground had a lot of trees damaged, so they leveled all of them to get to the damaged ones. This used to be a very shaded campground. It breaks my heart to see it in this condition. The River sites are still in good shape, but you can't have pets down there. Great for canoeing and great boat tour to the Old Cracker Homestead. Lots of hiking in the woods. We love to take our dog down trails in the woods, and clean up after her! A wonderful beach a few miles north in Hobe Sound that allows dogs on it.
