RV sites are first come, first served, and include only 2 50-amp lots and 1 pull-through. Off/shoulder season best as sites are close together although offset to give most a view. Lovely CCC stone buildings around were built around the ancient spring first used by Native Americans for alleged health benefits. You're free to drink, bottle or lather the sulfurous water on affected body parts. Didn't cure the writer's arthritis. "'Multiuse' Trail" only for hikers and very experienced and well-conditioned mountain bikers. "Nature Trail" can be hiked by those in average condition. Park has miles of paved road with a lot of "hoops and hollers" (up and downs) that will challenge bike riders in only fair condition. Lovely stream near the entrance with lots of flat rocks can be climbed. Day use area has beach and is well away from camping spots. Fishing available. Town couple tenths of a mile from park entrance had only one open shop, a general store with everything from bug spray to worms for fishing, and an open-carry clerk. Well worth a couple days stay.

Trails are bikeable with hybrid/mountain cycles. Gobbler Ridge (2.4 miles with some walk it sand) went down to Lake Kissimmee. Saw sandhill cranes and deer. North Loop Trail (4-6 miles) was well marked but not much seen other than pine needles and 2 tortoises. Well kept with friendly rangers. Worth a couple days. Large rigs should avoid site 13 despite 40' rating. All sites have foliage so get out the OTA antenna, dish won't work.
