We were in cabin #2. There are 12 tent sites and 6 cabins available to rent. Cabins are primitive with 2 electrical outlets. Tent sites have no electricity and shared water. Most seem very small for today's larger tent sizes. There is no vehicular traffic on the island. A pontoon boat will take you from parking lot to island and then a ranger van will take you and your stuff to your cabin/site. This park is very busy on the weekends, usually completely full. There are several trails to hike/bike. Canoe/kayak rentals are available as well as excellent fishing on the St. Johns River. We found the bathroom to be very dirty and something (maybe a rat) was living in the woman's bathroom. Park was very quiet during the week, and rangers were helpful as well. Since my last visit almost 20 years ago they have added a playground and a visitor's center/museum. But the 80 ft tall observation tower was taken down 6 years ago. We also visited Blue Springs SP, about 12 miles away. It has 72 degree water for swimming and DeLeon Springs SP, with a wonderful pancake breakfast made from homemade flours ground on the premises with their mill as well as natural spring swimming. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
