This is my 3rd stay at the park. Recently picked up a Jayco Popup and HF was not far and a great place to test. Note to others, the riverside lots are down in a valley and will not get TV or cell signals. It does have larger lots. I stayed in one of the lakeside lots, near the restrooms. Had good cell so did not need to use the Wi-Fi at the office. Was quiet and near empty. Nice stay, well maintained and good sites although some of the lakeside ones are not real level. Have stayed in both camp areas. Both are nice, some are right on the river. Falls trails are nice. First stay was in torrential rain first day. Rest was nice.
This was third stay at the park. It is a nice quiet park away from it all. Only negative is the mosquitoes. The sites along the intercoastal side have standing water behind them, so the bugs can get bad (sites 1-18 on the right side of the road). They did not seem bad at the center and ocean side sites. Nature trail is a nice walk. My folks said the beach was nice. The intercoastal beach is just 100 yards from the campground and is nice and shaded.
Stayed 3 nights. Staff was friendly. Seemed relatively well kept. Only negative is many of the sites have the power and water on the wrong side. Mine had a big low branch in front of the power. I had to fit my popup between two branches. Cannot complain as it was well shaded because of the low trees. It was full due to the Apalachicola Seafood Festival. If it is not busy, you would want to pick a site before you check in. The larger sites do not have much restrictions. The campground is tight for big (long) pull trailers and the road in is a bit bumpy. Go slow and you'll be fine. The river is nice to go see, did not try the canoe rental but wanted to. Hiked along the two river trails. Looks great for boats, canoes and kayaks. I did not hear loud boats on the river in campsite; looks to be idle speed area. I had Sprint cell and a marginal signal. My folks had Verizon and a decent signal. Overall, I'd go again. No complaints other than some annoying college kids that were talking loud all night. Not the parks fault.
