Level sites (I stayed in 25 and then extended my stay and moved to 6), shade trees in most sites to block the mid-day sun, easy back-ins, decent bathrooms and spacious showers. TONS of trails for mountain biking or hiking! (I recommend getting the AllTrails app since some trails aren’t marked too well.) Beautiful lake with the sounds o... more

“Came for the weather and can't wait to come back”

We had low expectations and just wanted to escape the cold but found a gem in this state park. The sites are spaced out beautifully with quite a few of them being pull-through. They were 50 amp, level, and paved. There is plenty of room in your campsite to relax outside. The real draw is the trail network for mountain biking an... more

“Fantastic campground, excellent bike trails ”

This is a gem of a park. Access the best bike trails in the state from your campsite. We participated in an excellent interpretive program, I love how the Florida State Parks strive to provide education as well as recreation.

Water spigot was 3” above the ground. Ordinarily I’d never consider returning but this State Park is so awesome we’ll be back soon and often. We saw deer and had a bright red cardinal visit our RV repeatedly. Our video is here: http://anrvandadog.com/OurVideos.html

“Great place to bike, hike, and camp”

Reviewed Apr 25, 2018

I've biked and camped here for years. What a great place; undoubtedly one of my favorites. The main trailhead gets busy, but the campsite is well removed from the bustle of the day use area. Nice and quiet after everyone is done biking for the day. Not specific to this campsite, but oh how I wish people would learn that their neigh... more

This park is famous for its extensive mountain bike trails, with many miles of trails ranging in difficulty level. There's even an on-site bike shop at the trailheads for rentals and repairs. We loved the hiking opportunities afforded in the terrain of the former phosphate mine, including the large network of equestrian trails. Another... more

“Nice, but....”

Reviewed Dec 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice state park, paved sites, 50 amp & water hookups, dump station on site. Nice space between sites, very quiet and dark = star-gazing! Lots of bike trails, not used by us. Horses & campers also here. No connectivity here and we opted not to stay because of that problem. If we were not working, this would be a great campground.

Alafia has spacious campsites with a large network of mountainbike trails on site. There is ample space separating the sites as well, although I would not claim privacy. The campground is very quiet, and there is little light pollution at night. The bathrooms are getting remodeled this year. There is a convenience store and pizza p... more

I stayed here Feb, 2015. There is not really a bad campsite in the place although some are better than others. They are all flat, many were pull through. There is no separating plant life although most of the campsites were not right next to each other giving some privacy. Bath house was clean and pretty modern. Great place to ride a b... more
