“Good Winter getaway”

Reviewed Mar 19, 2019

Overall Rating

Paynes Priaire is very magical, where old oak trees in their majestic arms hanging over the canappy of the park. There is a big lake within walking distance of the campground with a boat ramp and fishing is allowed with a license. There are many trails to explore in your stay. The paths in the park are not very well marked and the r... more

What else can I add. Visit the visitor center, climb the tower, hike the trails and enjoy the lake. Campground is lovely and the park is great.

“Great Campground, Awesome Price!”

Reviewed Jan 25, 2019

Overall Rating

We spent a couple weeks in Florida over Christmas. I must say that Florida State Parks in general were impressive. Payne's Prairie was a great park and the camping fees were surprisingly low - only $18 with water and electric! The bathhouse was clean, and I loved how much room I had in the shower for keeping my dry items dry (if that m... more

“Our new favorite Florida State Park”

Reviewed Dec 07, 2018

Overall Rating

Our new favorite Florida State Park that doesn’t have a beach. Campsites are for the most part private and the foliage is thick and palmy. Restrooms are clean and well-maintained and the showers are plenty hot. So many trails to hike and bike on. Lake Wauberg borders Hwy 441 on the way to the Main Entrance and Ranger Station. The lake ... more

“Our return visit”

Reviewed May 27, 2018

We camped here last year and loved it, so of course we just had to come again. Last year we rode our bikes and hiked. We especially enjoyed the view from the observation tower, across the prairie and watching the horses... just beautiful. This year we drove into Micanopy for lunch where we had the pleasure of listening to local mus... more

“Peaceful and private ”

Reviewed Apr 26, 2018

Overall Rating

We have been to Paynes Prairie Reserve a few times but this visit warranted a review. Maybe I was inspired by the absolutely perfect weather, maybe the number of birds we encountered, maybe the fact this is a bit later in the season, but the park is lovely. Coming off a very busy several months, this was a respite and we settled into... more

“What a park!!”

Reviewed Dec 29, 2017

Overall Rating

Total mind melt when walking from the woods and end up at the prairie. The park was great and we had plenty of room between the sites, we could see our neighbors, but didn’t feel like a sardine. Great biking (even though I flipped over my handlebars because a bee flew into my beard) throughout the park. Paved and unpaved surfaces,... more

“They say you can see bison...”

Reviewed Jan 10, 2015

Overall Rating

Our campsite was great. A bit small for a state park, but average for Florida state parks. There are a few trails, one in particular that promises / mentions you might be able to see wild horse, bison and alligators. We saw none of those, but did come across tons of beautiful Floridian foliage, from spanish moss hanging out of live... more
