“Large, Beautiful, Serene Campsite”
This is a very large campsite with soft ground (primarily sand) and some shade. There are the ubiquitous editions of fire ring, table-bench combination, and standing grill, and a few hundred feet down a sand path, access to the river. I don't have a lot of boat experience, so I don't know how easy it would be to get a kayak or so in there, but there don't seem to be any provisions for doing so (like a ramp or something).
The site is wonderfully quiet. You can see some building in the very far distance, but that is about it. The night we spent there, it was extremely quiet even from bugs and other wildlife. No mosquitoes, which blew my mind, but I wouldn't want to promise that that is always the case. Plenty of little creeks and waterholes etc. around.
The four stars (as opposed to five) comes from the trash we found lying around, including whip-it cartridges and underwear. I personally don't care how people spend their free time (as long as no one gets hurt against their will), but please just take your trash with you!

PS.: Really large vehicles might have trouble with the bridge that needs to be crossed to access this site as well as (maybe?) the sand on the site itself.

From Highway 98 roughly midway between Carrabelle and Eastpoint, turn north at the well-marked parking area at John Allen Road. Continue to Dry Bridge Road, following the signs to the left for the cypress boardwalk. Continuing further west on Dry Bridge Road (past the turn to the Pidcock Road campsite) and turn left on Rake Creek Road. At the next intersection, you'll see the campsite post, and continue forward to the end. Please review the overall map for campsites at Tate's Hell State Forest.
