During the "season" September to April, the park is hopping. Dances, events, all kinds of sports, and other activities abound. We have been six times in a few months. We are weekend campers. The people in the park are super friendly. Plenty of space for bicycle riding and walking. If you want to do it, it's there. We have enjoyed visiting this campground and will continue to go often.

We loved this state park. Plenty of bike riding (we rode 82 miles in three days), hiking, nature, and wildlife. Wi-Fi is available at camp store. We used our antenna and had plenty of TV channels. Our site was #76, paved, and right next to the restrooms. We were in the newer section and had sewer hook up. You can either bring your own kayak or canoe or rent one. They also rent bicycles. The restrooms were new and clean.

The park is very nice. It is a 55+ but welcoming to a little younger. Check-in was quick and the staff was friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. The restrooms were clean. Wi-Fi is free, but you need to take your device to the computer office in town so the service provider can enter your mac address into their computer. Browsing is slow. There is not really a place to ride a bicycle except throughout the park. You are located between Zephyrhills and Dade City. Dade City has antique shopping and little bistros. The location of the train tracks in close proximity to the park makes for a sleepless night. The trains seemed to come regularly through the night and because the park is close to an intersection, the train has to blow it's horn. We planned to stay for three nights, but had to leave after one. The noise was the only deal killer for us.

We absolutely loved this campground. Our site was directly on the oceanfront side. We plan to go back frequently. For bicycle riders, it's a dream. We rode from Ormond Beach to Daytona Beach and then from Ormond Beach to Flagler Beach. A1A is all flat riding. You can also ride your bikes on the beach. The resort is in an area of privately owned homes and condominiums so the beach is not overly crowded. During turtle nesting season you cannot have lights on past 10 p.m.

Off the beaten path a little bit. The park is in an older section of town. The ride to the beach is about 10 minutes by vehicle and 30 minutes by bicycle. You will need to ride on a well-traveled road with no bike lanes for about a half mile. The campground pool was clean. They also have a playground for children, but it needed to be cleaned up. The sites are grass and most have picnic tables. There are many pull through sites. The roads in the park are packed lime rock. Wi-Fi is not available contrary to the website. There is another campground right up the road from this one that we would consider staying at only because of the bike riding issue.
