“Great, New Campground ”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a new campground and a relatively new State Park. Our check in went smoothly, even though the staff is still getting used to the system and our site had been reserved the day before, but the person never checked in/out. Caused a little confusion, but they figured it out and we made our way to our site. The drive to the campground is a bit long, but is mostly paved, only the very last bit is hard packed dirt. The campground road is not paved, but the sites are all gravel with a patio area to the side that has a picnic table, fire pit and charcoal grill.

We had no trouble backing into our site and more than enough room for our 39’ fifth wheel and truck. Our site was level and we had no problems with the hookups. Not all sites are as spacious, but in general the sites are roomy. There is ample space between sites, you don’t feel crowded at all, but the lack of trees makes for little to no privacy or shade. There are a couple of pull throughs on the inside of the loop that would feel more private, the one our friend was in on the outside of the loop had the living area facing the road.

We didn’t use the bath house, but our friend did and said they were spotless, which I would expect considering how new everything is.

The park itself is large with a lot of hiking opportunities, equestrian trails and a lake for kayaking or fishing. We really appreciated how quiet it was at night and I’ve heard the star gazing is nice, but we had cloudy weather our two nights there.

My only real complaint was the dust, we were near the main road and people don’t seem to obey the speed limit, even some people driving in the campground loop went a little too fast. We didn’t have much trouble since our RV blocked the dust from the main road and our living space was removed from the campground road, but our RV was quite dusty when we left. I’ve been told that paving the road and campground loop are in the plans, but I also know that Florida state parks are still recovering from hurricane damage, so it might be a while for them to get the money. The dust certainly wouldn’t keep me from returning, the good far outweighs the dust!

While we were there the campground host drove around offering firewood and ice, which was nice, we didn’t have to drive up to the gate for our wood.

Our AT&T phones would work outside, but not very well in the RV. We used our Verizon Mifi, with a booster, and that worked just fine.

We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning.

“New RV sites with large sites”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2018

Overall Rating

New 2 week old RV campground with large back in and a few pull thru sites on gravel but level sites. Each site provides ample room ( 68 ft deep) for large rigs. Water & electricity. 2 handicap sites (site 2 & 6 ) are on full cement slabs with full hookups. Clean restrooms. Two long hiking trails ( a 10 and 7 mile loop ). Lake with kayak rentals. Future sites to come when more funding is provided which leaves me to the only downfall- partially completed roads. Drive into your site is dirt. You will leave here covered in dust. It’s a great new park close to a Publix market within 15 mins. Plenty of privacy between neighbors. All sites have fire pits and barbecue grills. Washer & dryer soon to come.
