“We didn't think we would like it here...”

But in three short days, we were won over! What we liked and didn't like are at the end of this narrative. We started off on the wrong foot. This is a small and somewhat primitive campground. The one-way road around the campground is narrow in spots and there are lots of trees. We were checked in by the ranger and he told us to enter the park on the first road we see as it is one-way. But my husband looked at the map and we were the last site so it made no sense to drive all the way around. So we went in on the "wrong way" and that worked the day we arrived. But we were on that site only one night and had to change to the site next to us the next day. (That was the only way we could get in this fully booked campground!) We had a very hard time squeezing into this site, # 29, between the trees. And once in, we realized the electric and water are on the opposite side from all the other campgrounds we have stayed. In order to plug in, we had to pull our 5th wheel up to the front of the lot. Not ideal as we were concerned our "hitch" would get hit if someone left early in the morning and wasn't able to see clearly.

When we changed sites, we did have to drive all the way around the campground. We haven't seen the damage from scrapping a few trees, hopefully there are no marks. Since we hope to sell our RV soon, that was not a fun sound to hear!

There are a few prime sites that will hold a 40 foot rig. We saw one couple heading here while we were out walking. They were going to be across from us. We advised them to stop before pulling into the campground, walk around and access their site to decide the best way in. They were pulling a 40 foot 5th wheel! Their site is one of only 2 or 3 pull throughs but it did have a power line across the back of it, so he had to watch for that. His site was 26. Site 28 is actually the best for an easy pull through. Site 20 maybe one also. We will upload a picture of the campground map which is a little more telling than what you will see on Reserve America.

What did we like: Very secluded and quiet campground. You wake up to the serenading of a multitude of birds! Each site has a fire ring, clothes line, water and electric. The sites are flat and a hard sand base. The camp host was readily available and very helpful. The bathrooms/showers are clean, a little dated, but at least clean. The nature trails are beautiful and if you are a kayaker or use a canoe, this is a good place to be.

What we did not like: Arriving when all the no-see-ums were hungry. It was 4:00 pm on a Saturday and the weather was cool. They don't like it hot, so eventually, they disappeared. So they were swarming us like a bad Alfred Hitchcock movie. We each have many bug bits and that has been a bit miserable. The couple across from us arrived a little before we did and they were also ready to leave. We did try to stock up on all our food, but needed a few more things. There is only one small grocery store, an IGA, in town and it is closed on Sundays. And the worst thing for us was that the water and electric are on the "wrong side" of the site, unless you want to come on backwards and that worked for the people in the pull through across from us. Our electric cord is 25 feet but our camper is 30 and the electric was up by the nose of our RV.

We wrote a blog about our time here with lots of pictures of the beautiful nature trails and more.

“Beautiful. Quiet. Amazing.”

The road to the park is dirt, and moderately bumpy, but at the posted speed limit, it was fine. Checking in was dead simple. Site 8 is "double" wide - in that there's room for your RV next to the power pedestal, and it seems like room for a second RV next to that on the other side of a tree,
They have canoe, kayak and bike rentals available for a very reasonable price, as well.

This is our 5th Florida State Park in three weeks and we have two more to go before we begin heading up north to spend time with our grandson. We’re not sure why we didn’t try camping in state par...
