“Peaceful, lots of shade”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Check in was quick, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The drive through the park and campground is paved. There is a narrow wooden bridge at the entrance to the campground that looks a little sketchy, but I managed it just fine, and I'm a total newbie when it come to towing. From my understanding, that bridge is scheduled to be ... more

“Beautiful campground with nice hiking trails”

Reviewed Nov 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here one night in mid-November. So close to Sarasota but feels very far from any city. Very flat, easy to navigate sites with water and electric. Pets allowed on sites 1-67 and on trails. Sites feel very private due to lots of tall trees and foliage. Very quiet. Lots of great hiking or biking trails and a lake to swim in. Even ... more

“Beautiful quite park with kayaking and great bike trails!”

Reviewed Apr 18, 2017

Overall Rating

This was our second time here and will probably not be our last. There are 98 sites with about half of them backing on to South Creek, a tidal blackwater stream which you can kayak down. More sites backup to hiking and biking trails. If you have a big rig pay attention to the site sizes and talk with the rangers. Some sites can be tig... more

“Lovely Park”

Reviewed Jan 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We just love parks that feel like you're way out in nature, but yet you're close to civilization! And this park has it all for us. We have a 35' bus, and where warned when we entered that we might not be able to make it back to our site. But it was no problem at all - just take your time if you're more on the beastly size. Two... more

“Hidden gem”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2016

Overall Rating

We stayed here for 3 weekdays right after Memorial Day. Compared to other nearby state/county parks (Myakka, Fort Desoto), this was smaller but still had plenty to do. Onsite kayak rentals are available, plenty of great hiking/biking trails and a lake for swimming. I don't know who'd be crazy enough to swim in a lake in Florida (gators... more

“"Old Florida" along the Gold Coast”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2015

Overall Rating

A very nice and quiet State Park that gives you the feeling of "Old Florida" in the otherwise bustling beach and snowbird oriented Sarasota County area. The park has a few hiking trails and decent access to the 20 mile long Legacy Bike Trail that runs between the Cities of Sarasota and Venice. The park is also close to several city an... more
