This was our first experience with a state park in Florida and I will have to say its one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. If all of them are like this Florida is a lucky state. Sites were large and even though I had a back in site, I had no difficulties of any kind with my 44 foot motorhome. Roads were wide and sites were well laid out with plenty of privacy between each on. lots of walking trails though the woods and along the river. Wildlife galore. it rained most of the time we were there but still had little to no standing water on our site. We will stay here again as we have already made returning reservations for next fall. You have to reserve long in advance for this park and its easy to see why.
This is a wonderful adult only park. I would have given it a 10 except for the lack of a pool and the sites are a little close. They were close but still far enough apart for awnings. Being on the Gulf is nice and the beach is great for walking on. Everyone around was friendly and never heard a negative thing from any other guests. Never tried the fishing myself but while we were there we did see some others catching fish from the pier. There is 70 channels of cable but about half of them seem to come in and out which could have been caused by the high winds off the gulf in the afternoon. The waterfront sites were plenty big enough to fit our 44 foot motorhome and roads were easy to navigate. We would stay here again if in the area.
First time staying at this park. Thought I would check it out as am constantly looking for other places in the area to stay. Camp workers were very kind and answered all questions cheerfully. This is a new park, barely 1 year old, and it shows because everything looks new. Wonderful pool and clubhouse. Very large sites which are hard to find in the state of Florida. The only reason for not giving it a 10 is I am a very picky person and a 10 is almost impossible.
I have been staying at this park for the past 5 years periodically throughout the year. Not sure if they have taken on new management or what is happening here. It is still a beautiful park and one of the prettiest I have ever stayed at traveling throughout the US, however, the personnel have changed drastically. Every time I go there it appears more and more permanent residence are moving in. Many now have large decks and have made it a home. The atmosphere is terrible and the campground manager, which is a big gentleman who wears a campground security shirt many of the days, makes you feel uncomfortable and uneasy. This in turn makes me wonder if going back for the river justifies my family feeling uneasy, especially since they feel they need a security man to patrol and make sure people know things are done his way or you may be removed from the campground.
