What a nice surprise this park was. Full hook ups, good electric, clean level sites. The town is 10 miles away with all the shopping you can use. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very well kept park. All sites are clean, your garbage is picked up daily and the staff is very friendly. There are several places to swim within the park. The water was very clean and cold. On a hot August day, that's just what we needed. Sites were easy to get in/out of, hook ups were updated and nice new gravel at each site. Our cell reception/internet was very spotty. We were impressed with this park and the ranger. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great State park that is far from the highway and in a very beautiful setting. Great sites with full hookups. The river beach is great and it is just a nice place for a night or for a week. We stayed in site #5 and it was a very wide concrete pad. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a small Campground as far as sites go. We stayed at this park as a overnight too and from our trip to Louisiana. Sites are nicely graveled sites. Sites are gravel base, each has W/E/S, outdoor grill, firepit and picnic table. Camp check was easy and very friendly ranger. Host on the campground takes pride in the camping area. The bathrooms were spotless, host wife cleans the restrooms and never heard a complaint from anyone about it being dirty. Plenty of hot water in the showers, nice clean toilet, showers and nice shower heads. We did not explore the whole park as we were here for one night going and one night coming but would definitely keep this on our books to stay again if we travel that way. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent park, quiet, well spaced sites with tree privacy. Minimal leveling on the pea gravel. Great sandy beaches on the river. Bathroom and showers were spotless. Campground host very friendly. Gate closes at 5pm. Call mid afternoon to get code if you are checking in late. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park among pine trees, very quiet. Large sites, clean and well kept, easy biking. There is a sandy beach within walking distance by the river and you can rent canoes and kayaks nearby. Nice walking trails and pavilions that you can rent for large functions. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful state park. Very private sites and extremely clean. Lots of great walking trails. New bathhouse. Cable TV would make it just about perfect. This was our second trip here and we would certainly stay here again. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

Very family friendly state park. Nice site, though not as shady as other state parks. The river is clean and they have an outfit out of the park where you can rent tubes, canoes, and kayaks. Lots of swimming places. Would stay here again. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night with 3 small children - wish it could have been for longer! This is a beautiful park that is well maintained. The host was super friendly, even offered to help us back into the site. We stayed in site 25, perfect length (we didn't need to disconnect our 35' trailer) with lots of privacy. Playground was great for my 3 and 5 year olds. Wish we could have explored the trails and beaches, but we didn't have time. Definitely a good value - just need to make sure you reserve early for this gem of a park. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice small, quiet, park. Most sites have gravel surface but a few spaces are concrete for handicap access. The park is well manicured by friendly staff. All spaces have full sewer hookups even though this is not specified on Reserveamerica.com. The staff picks up your trash every day at your camp site. Good AT&T cell service. I had difficulty getting a Direct TV shot through the trees on the south side of the Titi loop. Other sites were more open with better satellite access but offered less shade. It’s a short walk to the Blackwater River from the campground which was great for floating on tubes or just sitting in and relaxing and cooling off. We had a wonderful time and plan to visit again. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a charming campground of two loops set in the forest with the Blackwater River a five minute walk away. Sites are very nice and level. There are even clotheslines at each site. Bathrooms are spotless. Sites are set in the forest and well shaded. You can walk to the river and sit on the white sand or just sit in the river and talk to those tubing or canoeing by. River is one of the purest sand bottom rivers in the world where one finds sandbars and places to stop and swim all along it. The Florida birding and canoe trail goes through here. It is beautiful. One should reserve because only half the sites were filled on this Thursday night but the campground was considered full because all the sites were reserved for the weekend. Other campers told us that weekends and all through the summer this campground is full. Outfitters will take you 11 miles upstream to canoe or tube downstream and meet you at a bridge just below the campground. Price for tubing was reasonable. You can also rent a canoe for all day or three days and canoe the whole trail through this park of 31 miles and camp on the sandbars. We were so glad that we came here even for just one night but would need two to really enjoy the tubing or canoeing on the river. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

Classic quietness can be had here, 10 out of 10. Five minute walk to river beach. Two loops, one surrounds play area and the other is very quiet. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a very pleasant two weeks In this very pretty and clean campground. This was our second stay here. Finding full hookups in a state park is wonderful! The hosts also provide trash pickup every morning! The only thing that would make it better would be laundry facilities. You have to contend with the military training helicopters flying over on a regular basis but you get used to them. Check before coming in the spring as they frequently burn the pine forest In the park. Due to several rains during our two weeks we didn't have to deal with the smoke but it could be a problem for some people. Plenty of hiking trails and it was a good bicycling area. We'll be back again some day! We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great site and the best State Park we have stayed at in Florida. Our site was large (concrete though some are gravel). Has full services and excellent bathrooms and showers. We would definitely stay here again. Located 12 miles form I-10 (from the east) and about 6 miles from I-10 (from the west). Great walks, canoeing , beaches and river swimming. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.
