“Beautiful Remote Camping”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2019

Overall Rating

Access off Rt42 at mile marker 70. Go 18 miles up gravel road and under I-75 at mile 15. Beautiful drive, lots of birds and gators. Well spaced sites not crowded. $10 gets ( $5 with senior pass) gets access to dump and water at other campgrounds. So nice we decided to stay here for six nights. Get hiking and bike trails.

“Quiet, nice sites. Remote, limited connectivity.”

Reviewed Dec 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Arrived Christmas Day 2018, found the park almost half full. No rangers or host due to the gov shutdown. The 20 mile gravel road leading to the campground was not bad. Sites are spaced very far apart and was really quiet. Except for the steady drone from I-75, over a mile away but sound carries across the slough. Fiberglass picnic table on a concrete pad, lantern pole and heavy duty steel campfire ring on mowed grass site. One bar of barely useable ATT 4G. Really nice looking concrete block pit toilets. Looking at this place for almost two years on google earth I really wanted to love it, I found it only so so. Unless you bring something to drive (4x4 / quad) the forest trails system with (permit required) there isn’t much to do here, no walking trails, pond, etc. but if you really want to get away from it all, this may be it.
