All the reviews are accurate - it's a beautiful park, well maintained, great staff. Definitely paddle the Blackwater River. HOWEVER - There's a naval air station training field next door. We had loud, low flying helicopters overhead from 7am to past midnight, constantly. We travel to parks to get away from the city noises, not to tour them. This went on for all three days of our visit. Another gripe - the campsites are nearly all 90 degrees off the narrow roads, which means backing into them can be a challenge. We had site 18 reserved, but after 20 minutes of trying, there was no way I was going to successfully back my 32' 5th wheel into it due to the 90 degree turn, trees and garbage cans close to the opposite side of the road that prevented me from having the maneuvering room needed. We were able to get into site 12. (If you have a really big rig, site 11 appears to be the longest). Nice park, nice trails and river - but if you're trying to get away for peace and quiet, this may not be the park for you. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here so we'd be close to the Blackwater River, which runs VERY close to the campground. To my knowledge, there are no sites ON the river, but they are within a five minute walk. We came for the express purpose of running a section of the river from Bryant Bridge to Deaton Bridge. We camped in a pop-up with two other couples who also had pop-ups. First, the rating of a 5 should not be misconstrued as bad. It was OK for us, but some might not like it. The camping loops are on dirt/sand roads so there is quite a bit of sand that will get tracked into your RV. Having said that, it IS Florida. The sites are large enough, but some are larger than others. This is true in most campgrounds. The bathrooms were clean and usable. One toilet did get stopped up one morning. When I came back in the afternoon, it had been unstopped and cleaned. The bathrooms are not heated though. There was a small playground for children. No pool. If you have kids, they can certainly play in the river. It's clean and shallow. As far as staying multiple days though, your kids would really need to be content with nature. There is nothing else to do. For that matter, it's the same with adults. Unless you are canoeing/kayaking the river or doing some minor hiking that's available you'll be bored. So anyway, this is a good place to stay to run the river. Just don't expect more than a place to stay. And one other caveat. We stayed here in the off season. I have been told that it is a total zoo in the summer. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Tent Trailer.
