We enjoyed our campsite here! The bathrooms were clean and had fans going 24/7. I liked that most of the campsites were on the inside ring but well spaced and many had a trail to the restroom through the center ring (vs. walking past all the sites to go to the restroom). Also, there were neat trails and the old cemetery for the abandoned town was cool. About 2 miles down the road was another state park with a fresh water spring. It was always 72 degrees, so there was a place to swim not far away but not walking distance. There was a boat ramp, but not really anywhere to swim at this state park. We heard a train once, but inside a 1956 vintage trailer (not built for being soundproof) we did not hear it at all during the night. There is a gas station/convenience store within 1/2 a mile of the park entrance which was nice. Most sites were wooded and shaded. I think three were paved. But most were private.

Campground was mostly wooded. It was full the labor day weekend we were there. There is a "spring" for swimming although it did look a little "green", probably OK for kids to swim in (walking distance from campsites). The cave tour made it worth while. Definitely a "must do" in Florida. The town is 5 miles away and very cute. Although hiking/fishing are the only other things to do in the park other than the cave tour or swimming in the spring. A nice place for a weekend.
