This is an "old Florida" kind of place which we have a fondness and appreciation. Having said that it is a tired place that could be really neat if it were fixed up some. Bathrooms need remodeling, roads are dirt with many potholes, many really old permanent trailers etc. This is no resort but the property sits on a neat river and the rate is ok for what it is. We enjoyed the restaurant, a good place to visit at least once.

We stayed for almost three weeks and enjoyed it very much. The staff does a very good job with just about everything. We were very surprised to see the number of people working here. The facility is huge, so it takes a lot to do it right. In November, the winter seasonal activities are beginning to ramp up. We became spoiled with nightly visits to the hot tub. Our only gripe would be the tight roads which can be busy so when walking around it is good to pay attention to vehicle traffic.

We stopped for an overnight stay heading north out of Florida and again on the return trip home. We try to use Passport America for overnight stops rather than truck stops or Walmart. We saw good reviews so thought it worth the few mile drive off I-95 and were glad we did. The owners are very friendly and live on site. The bathrooms were clean, as was the entire property. All roads are nicely paved asphalt while the pads are concrete and level. Our first night stay was in steady rain so we were glad to have the paved roads and site. The second night was beautiful weather and we got a much better view of the whole property and it is really nice. There is a mix of shaded and more open sites and most were pull through with some of those being quite long so the toad can stay attached. We will stay hear again when traveling I-95 in the future.

This park sits on a fantastic piece of waterfront real estate, that is a small undeveloped island aside from the park. Like most FL state parks it is on the rustic side and is meant for the outdoor lovers. If you are after perfect paved sites, planned activities, fancy bathrooms, and fully appointed clubhouses you will be disappointed. If you like beaches, boating, fishing, snorkeling, hiking and tropical settings this is for you. The bathrooms were clean and the electric worked fine. We made use of the onsite boat ramp and marina which is protected and calm. If you look at the map you see the bridge is very close by and since sound travels very well across water, you will hear traffic. It is a small price to pay for such a beautiful spot.

We visited this park for a quiet weekend getaway, it was perfect for this. Being summertime the park was not at all busy, maybe 20% occupied or so. It has more of a state park feel than a resort which we like. The roads are paved while most sites are not. With almost 400 sites this is a big campground. Seems to us the sites would offer something for everyone. Some are very secluded and shady while others are open and sunny. The foliage is mostly oak trees so it is not a tropical setting like you may find further south in FL. Pool and hot tub were great as were rest rooms. This park is busy during the winter and offers a lot of activities that time of year. Selecting a site on the eastern side will put you further from the road noise which is not bad anyway. We will stay here again especially since they honor Passport America.

We stopped for an overnight stay on return to Florida. We usually try to stop at Passport America parks for overnights but it was 106 degrees that day an we wanted a nice pool. This park is not a PA park so rate shown is retail with no sewer hook up. The pull through sites were very long but offered no shade. The pool closed at 8:30 pm which was strictly enforced, there were about a dozen of us who would have swam longer if allowed. This park is well maintained with nice clean air conditioned bathrooms.

We stayed overnight while passing through this area, the park is convenient to I-24. For one night it was fine but we would not have enjoyed a longer stay. Park maintenance was just OK, some area look worn. Restrooms were not very clean or air conditioned. Wi-Fi only works close to office. The rate shown was the Passport America rate and it was worth that. There are a lot of permanent residents, the ones we met all seemed friendly.

We stayed overnight on a trip north from Florida, the rate was the Passport America rate. This is a well run, clean and nice park. The managers live on site and work hard to make this a nice place to stay. We will certainly return when traveling through this area. Very convenient access to I-75 but not so close that the noise is objectionable.
