“Worth every penny!”

We’ve been boondocking for a bit and decided to splurge when we saw photos of the springs here and noticed it had hot showers. Came in at 6 on a Saturday night and scored the last walk up site available and it’s worth every penny! Nice large sites with dense tropical foliage between them, beautiful (albeit short) trails, and the spring... more

“Nice place.”

We camped here for the first time mid March. We were in site 7 with a 32ft tt. Staff were great and restrooms very clean. Springs and Juniper run are very nice. Lots of wild life to see on the run to. Site 7 is not the best though it is smaller and its right by bathhouse. Site 27 and 28 look to be the best to me. There is potable wat... more

“Mid Feb is awesome!”

Reviewed Feb 19, 2018

Honestly, you can keep Florida. The sand, salt, bugs, heat, etc. are just not fun to us. But the dreary winter in Atlanta promoted us to head south for some sunshine. We found it! This park is very nice. We boondock mostly, so usually detest being too close to others in CGs. This one has enough space and vegetation to give you some... more

Nature and history combine for a great experience here. Florida trail runs through the campground near the entrance offering great hiking in forest and scrub. Springs are my favorite in... more

One of the best Forest Service CG's. Managed by RRM. It was quiet the week before Presidents Day. On the weekend, there was the usual noise from kids at play. Lots of privacy between sites. Two springs in the CG, one you can paddle. Site 41 is the only one with all day sun for solar charging. Our rate reflects half price + reservation ... more
