We've stayed here several times in the Magnolia Loop as an overnight on our travels east and west. Roads are tight with lots of tree over hang. It's about 10 to 12 miles off of I-75. Our site was well kept. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

Bathrooms are very clean, many of the campers agree. Showers are very nice, lots of hot water. No AC, but there are fans and plenty of air flow in the bathrooms. Mixed electric services, 30 amps on all sites, some have 50 amps. Roads are limestone/sand with some potholes. Magnolia is an older campground with a narrow road. Some of the sites are quite difficult to get in with larger motorhomes/fifth wheels. Lots of vegetation between sites. Small playground avail for the kids. Short walk to Day Use and the trailheads, for both hiking and biking. Fishing and swimming available. Interesting geologic feature, the Santa Fe River goes underground at the Park and comes back above ground at River Rise Park, another park under the management of O'Leno. Lots of opportunities for equestrian trails as well. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

If you have a long rig, either motor home or fifth wheel, stay out of the Dogwood loop; try to book in the Magnolia loop if possible. The scars on the trees in Dogwood are evidence that you don't belong there! Pull behind trailers shorter than about 25 feet should be OK, although some sites, and the loop road, would still be a challenge. I rated this park average. The bathrooms are clean and the day use areas are fairly nice, but the campground roads and sites need attention. The loop roads are dirt/packed sand, pot holed and narrow. The day use area is popular with the locals, and that's where I think the Park puts it's money. The hiking trails, streams and sink holes in the Park are mildly interesting, but worth the hike. We probably won't return here unless we just need to camp in the area for other reasons. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in the Dogwood loop and booked late because of Matthew destruction on the coast campgrounds. As mentioned in earlier reviews, the roads are very difficult to maneuver. The trees come right to the edge of the roads so it makes tight turns difficult. Our site, 49 was quite difficult to get into with our 25 foot trailer. We made it but it was a challenge. Hook-ups were water and electric, so sewer. Sites were clean because of the great host staff.

There are lots of hiking trails. We took our kayaks south on 441 to the first bridge where you can find a canoe outfitter who will pick you up down river and bring you back. We traveled a little farther south on 441 to the ramp sign on the road and followed directions to the ramp. We launched there and paddled up river to where the river re-emerges from underground. The river was very quiet and beautiful. It was well worth the trip. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Another wonderful Florida state campground and park. So glad we found it!! We camped in Magnolia in a motorhome, roads are a bit narrow but manageable if you take it slow. Bath/Shower House was clean, showers hot but no A/C! Site was shady and spacious.

We saw a panther!! We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

This park was created by the CCC in the late 1930's, and has since been updated with water and electric. At least four sites have 50 amp service for larger rigs. Dump station is easy to get to on the way out located far enough away so odors are not noticed in the camp sites. Dumpster also located there. Sites are more suited to tents, pop-up or travel trailers because it is necessary to dodge trees while parking in the site. The entire campground is heavily wooded providing well shaded campsites. Site improvement is in process, but will probably remain a more rustic type of area with dirt roads and packed sand/gravel driveways.

Because it is a smaller park and wooded, it is relatively quiet. We enjoyed hiking, bird watching and just being outdoors. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The old CCC bunkhouse is part of the small museum located in the park. A nature trail leads to the sink hole where the river disappears. Ranger led walks are available during certain times.

The campground loop roads need much improvement - sandy and full of pot holes. Sites are sandy and most have a little wood fence around them. Most sites are large and shaded with trees and shrubs between the sites. The Magnolia Loop is the nicer of the two. The bathhouse is newer - roomy, clean showers, well maintained. Magnolia is also closer to the river and activities. Many sites in the Dogwood loop are not level. River Sink trail is a nice walk. Very interesting how the river goes underground for miles. Some mosquitoes but not too bad. I would give it a higher rating if the campground road was in better shape. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

Most sites are 30 amp, but there are a few 50 amp ones! Sites were nicely spaced and level, but were all dirt! Lots of trails for biking and hiking and quite a few geocaches in the park! We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

It was hard for me to believe this is a state park. The attention to detail and cleanliness is superb while also preserving the beautiful woodsy environment. We were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sites and grounds. The campground is very quiet. Each site on the Magnolia loop has a fence around it which provides a sizeable parking site and a side area for fire ring and table. Our site was deep and easily accommodated our trailer and truck with an easy back in entry. We had plenty of room for our slideout, our awning and a separate screen room covering the table area. The Magnolia loop accommodates bigger rigs nicely while the Dogwood loop has smaller sized sites better for tents, pop-ups and small rigs. The public part of the park offers swimming and play areas and the Magnolia loop has a nice play area as well. Roads and sites are hard packed sand, relatively level, with water and electric. By the look of this place, it is hard to guess it was established in the 1930s and is one of the older parks in the state. The very clean showers (3) are large with separate dressing area and heat lamps above. We definitely would return. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Two hours to St Augustine or Tampa, less than an hour to Gainesville so this can be used as a center of operations for area sightseeing.

Very helpful and friendly park staff and camp hosts. One of the few CCC camps in Florida. The cabins and other structures are attractive. There are trails throughout the park. The riverfront offers fishing, swimming, plus near-by hiking trails. There are two campgrounds: Dogwood and Magnolia. Magnolia is the more "improved" with larger sites and split rail fences to define the campsites. Campsites are somewhat close together with sand/dirt, somewhat level surfaces. Roads in campground are compacted dirt. Trees provide shade but we were able to get a satellite signal. Verizon signal was strong. Small nearby town of High Springs offers groceries, fuel, and restaurants. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

Dogwood loop is well worn. Loop roads are dirt and very rough. Turns are very tight. Bathroom and shower fixtures are worn out and the whole loop needs work. Our site was big enough, but larger rigs were having trouble. Sites are very close together and the rules about the number of people per site are not enforced. On the weekend park is packed and noisy. There are a lot of sites in this park and only one dump station. When we dumped on Sunday, there were three rigs ahead of us and seven behind us. In the winter the further south you go the harder it is to book sites anytime. The weekends are almost impossible less you book many months in advance. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great park in any season. Clean facilities, great staff, well kept. Several trails to hike and bike, sand or hardtop. Observe wildlife, fish, swim and kayak the river. Museum and Nature Center are interesting. Cabins and two loops, Magnolia Loop next to river and day park. Level, sand sites with corral. Not close together, some have fhu. Old Town 12 miles away, but quick shop stores closer. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

We were in Magnolia, site 7. Very nice site, lots of sand but very level. Would definitely stay here again. If in the area, there are a lots of springs in which to either tube or swim. The Florida state park system is very good. There are not many amenities at this park. Easy in and out, utilities good. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this state park! Site was a pull through and there was plenty of room between all sites. This park sits on the Santa Fe River just north of High Springs and is close to other sites - springs, towns etc. Kids loved the nature center (open Sat and Sun) and the nature trail along the river. Will return again. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful trees and shady sites. Very quiet - there are shrubs and trees between campsites for privacy (we stayed in the Magnolia loop). Only saw one pull-through site. Nice play area for the kids in the middle of our loop. We walked a couple of the nature trails and saw deer and a wild turkey. No laundry facilities – the ranger said you have to go about 15 miles away to do that. Aluminum and plastic recycling on site. Glad that the shower/rest rooms aren’t air conditioned – in the summer, A/C makes it too cold after a shower. They do have ceiling fans though – which is plenty adequate. Bike paths lead from the park out maybe all the way to Ichetucne – quite a nice surprise. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Travel Trailer.
