Beautiful river for canoeing with lots of wildlife, also a short boardwalk trail. They have rentals as well as carts to help wheel your canoe to the boat ramp. The spring is the local swimming hole - very busy and crowded on weekends. They do check coolers for disposable containers and alcohol. The campground has mostly large shaded sites. Most have vegetation between sites. Most have nice tent pads, picnic tables, and paved area to park. The campground road is narrow and has a lot of potholes. The bathrooms are adequate but kept clean even on the busy weekend. The showers are controlled by a push button the turns off after a few minutes which is annoying. Note: check the site map as not every loop has a shower house. It would be nice if they had electric hook ups as it gets hot at night in the warmer months. I gave it a 5 due to lack of hookups, and need for road maintenance. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Rate is Senior rate with Golden Age pass. Also, this review is based on having RV. If for tenting, I would give a higher score. Problem is many sites (where you put RV) are narrow, not level, or difficult to access. We were given the option to look first and did not, so took site close to path to springs. We fit (at 26') but if you had slides, they would not work. So check first. Bathrooms and showers were clean BUT needed maintenance; doors did not have locks, shower curtains hanging askew, towel holders broken off, no place to put shampoo or soap in showers. At the dump station there was standing water in the dump site; someone should be checking, cleaning, maintaining. Roads in the park are asphalt but starting to show wear; pot holes and crumbling on the road and at the site. HOWEVER, if tenting here or in small B class, this is super spot. Many sandy tent platforms raised up, firepits and grills, pole for lantern, etc. All of this is short walk to the springs which are awesome. Great swimming at constant 72 degrees and shallow (for kids) for much of area. Don't let the algae bother you, it's mostly near the boil. We walked the nature trail and it was old Florida, with great interpretative signs. They needed better maps with directions on board walk, but good experience. So because of maintenance needs and tough access, I give it a 7 for RVs, but would give a 9 for tenters. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Senior rate shown. We were in site 5 just across from restrooms with no showers. The nearest shower were in Loops B or C. There are no really bad sites, however, in some cases the fire ring is as much as 50' or so away from the RV-If tent camping, there was plenty of room to get nearer the fire rings. The spring and the hiking trails were great although there was a tree over the boardwalk we could not get past with a wheelchair. We did get by by getting off the walk. There is a limited convenience store at the spring and a regular store about 5 minutes east of the park. Cell phone would only work at the ranger station at the entrance. We did not try TV. A nice place to visit-ENJOY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
