This is a very clean and beautiful campground. The interpretive trails are nice with lots of nice long bridges for the low areas. There is a small beach on the river, although the trail to it was flooded when I was there. There is additional access just down the road a short distance through the public use area. There is a posting to watch for "Gators", but it is Florida after all. I paid $20 per night plus tax via ReserveAmerica, not bad for full hook-ups. Lots of shade, most sites wide enough for large RV and toad side by side on the level pea gravel. The exceptions are sites 1, 2, and 4, which are smaller and have less shade. Cloths lines are provided along with both a fire pit and cooking grill. The playground has shade too. Most sites have vegetation between them so the seem private also nice spacing between. Sites 5, 6, and 29 have concrete pads, though they must be for handicapped campers. I was surprised to get most of my Dish Satellite channels, as my AT&T Internet fluctuated from 0 to 3 bars at my campsite. There is overnight parking for big rigs in the public use area for $5.33 per night. I would have given it a 9 or 10 except that the only dumpster I could find was in the public use area (quite a hike with a bag of trash) and the inconvenience of the registration office being only open between 5-7. The campground is well marked in both directions from I-10. You'll get on HWY 90 and turn at Deaton Bridge Rd (also signage for the park), drive about 3 miles on a decent road over a couple of bridges to the park, then about 2-3 miles to the campground. - hillbillyrvgal
Beautiful sites, seemingly recently upgraded. Stunning location if you like hiking. Florida Trail across road. We booked site by phone but later found it is easier to use the on-line reservation system as parks are very crowded at this time of year. We would have liked to stay longer. Immaculate level spacious sites. Need your own Internet access. Would have loved to stay here longer. - rvbravo2
This was a wonderful state park with paved interior roads, 30 level gravel sites, strong 50-amp power, and water to all of them. Book this one early, it is very popular! Sites were spacious and widely separated from neighbors. All sites had sewer, a table, and a fire pit with firewood for sale at the ranger station at a reasonable price. The reception to our Verizon phones and MiFi unit was good. It was mostly quiet during our stay, and we enjoyed bird-watching and taking several long walks. There was a canoe rental company just down the road that offered rides from our car to the starting point, then we just paddled a few miles back to our car and took off - this activity is not to be missed! Bathrooms were clean and nice, as were the showers. Grocery stores and other businesses were quite a distance from this isolated park, so come prepared with plenty of supplies. We would have rated it higher except for a couple of items. The rangers were rarely available except in the evenings, which was inconvenient when we wanted to ask questions about hiking or other area attractions. The hiking maps that were offered were useless and trail head markers were non-existent. The other downside was the military helicopters flying over at low altitude almost constantly on several days during our week's stay, and that certainly took away from the serenity of this beautiful place. However, we would stay here again if in the area. - LowesTravels
We stayed here about 5 years ago and it hasn't changed at all. It's still immaculately kept. Very easy on and off I-10. Great for an overnight. There is some traffic noise and the "ever present" train but nothing to really bother anyone in the park. Will definitely stay here again. - dickens
Nice park. Attractive. Grass everywhere. Stayed one night. Sites are compacted gravel, flat, with picnic table, and surrounded by grass. All are pull-through. Very pleasant. Sites are flat enough that most won't really need to use jacks. Facilities are newer so electrical outlets are fine, water is tasty with good pressure. TV is over-the-air with several stations.
Wi-Fi was terrible and costs $1/night extra. Down: 2.7 Mbps, Up: 0.37 Mbps. Just fast enough to check your email and visit FB for a while. That's about it.
Park is far enough off the freeway, I-10, that it is very quiet, but still easily accessed. Not much to do in the near vicinity. - User35
We were not able to get a site for the night, but the owner let us stay in his "overflow" area. The price reflects 50 amp hookup and access to water, plus a place to dump our tanks in the morning before we left. - Teacher's Pet
Typical old Florida CG. Friendly staff. Large fairly level pull through grass sites. Gravel roads were ok. Good 50 Amp service. Typical free slow campground service. There is a boat ramp to the river. Great for overnight would stay again. Might stay an extra night and explore the river. - bunni
Stayed one night. Checked power and had an open ground so moved to next site that tested okay. Sites 69-72 are not real level. Had to work to get motorhome level. The entire campground is Florida sand. We used Escapee discount. That made the cost vs. value to be realistic. WiFi was very spotty. - RV Having Fun
Stayed one night on way west from Clermont Fl. Park is older sites are dirt but large and level. Wifi was great. Overall excellent value. They now take credit cards. - USAF1
