Beautiful park. Large spacious sites once you are in the park. Large immaculate bath house. Plus it had heat in January which is a rarity we discovered while traveling through Florida in the winter. The park is in a very crowded residential area and is difficult to find. I talked with other campers who had the same experience getting into the park. Just be aware prior to visiting the park.
Do not attempt to come here in a motor home over 30 ft. It was very difficult getting into the park. When I was making reservations, I was told it would be no problems getting into the park. Upon arrival to the park, the woman wasn't sure if we would be able to get into the site assigned to us. She said she would have a woman who lived in her car move, and we could have her site. The bathrooms were nasty as was the shower. The park has permanent residents and a bar. It is nothing like the website presents. I would not recommend camping here.
This park is a 10 plus. Truly one of the most beautiful parks we have ever camped. Gorgeous site overlooking the Mississippi River. Grounds are immaculate and sites level with nice campfire ring. Swings and benches to sit in and watch the barges go down the river. Truly breathtaking sunsets on the river. We were here in the middle of the week in October and it was not crowded. Hope to visit again soon. The only negative was the road getting into the park is narrow and curvy, but worth the drive!
Rate includes AAA discount. Interesting small park near Bourbon Trail Distilleries. Backs up to a beautiful golf course. We were in 34 foot rig. Sites are close and tight. Quiet and very peaceful park. Bath and showers are clean. A little tricky getting into the park with a motor home. Had to unhook at front gate.
We camped on a site on the river. The incline down to the river is a bit steep but was able to fish right out the back of the MH. Sites were level and we had 30amp electric hookup. We had no WiFi at the MH, but there was WiFi at the store and certain areas of the park. The sites are close but not too crammed. We saw a black bear on our second day here. Loved the fall foliage and be sure and visit the farm at the park. Would definitely love to visit this park again. Lots of friendly campers.
The reason this park received a 9 is because the bathrooms and showers are old. Campground sites are level, clean and easy in and out. Views of the canyons are beautiful and lots of hiking trails. Be aware that the hike to the falls involves many steps down to the falls and back up. You must be in good shape to make this trek.
Great place for a one night stop over. Large pull-through sites with plenty of room for FHU. We didn't have to unhook our tow. The bath and restrooms were immaculate. The check-in and check-out very easy and the owners are very helpful. One note: you do have to look for the road to the KOA. You can see the campground from the interstate but you can easily miss the turn off into it. We have stayed here several times and will stay here again on our way to Florida.
This park is right off I-10. The sites are all dirt and there appeared to be several permanent residents. It is just OK for one night stay. No Wi-Fi. WiFi is available if you want to go sit in the check-in area. One recommendation would be for the KOA sign to be larger and in a more prominent location. The sign is easy to miss.
Sites are very tight. We arrived late and the campsite that was reserved could not accommodate a motor home with a tow. The site we were put in was toward the back of the campground and we were squeezed in between two other large motor homes. The only bath house is very small. The positive - it was clean but, I was the first person to bath in it the next a.m. The rate was with the KOA discount. The park would have been a bit nicer if they had not put so many campsites into such a small area. However it was OK for a one night stop over.
This park was selected due to the National Geographic State Parks books. We arrived at night after a storm had knocked out the electricity. The camping sites are very close together. The road signs into the campground are hard to see after dark. Very small and almost hidden. The ranger was very helpful. This is an older campground that is not as updated as some of the other Florida State Parks.
New campsites and great pull-through for a 34' motor home with tow. New clean bath house with handicap access. Bike trails, hiking trails, be sure and take the boat ride on the lake. The guide was very informative and entertaining. Arrive early to get your ticket. Lots of alligators, birds, and other wildlife. Would highly recommend this for a winter get away. Sarasota is just a few miles away if you tire of looking at the alligators!
Beautiful park. Easy access in a motor home with a tow. Beaches have a nice boardwalk to the beach plus a bench to sit and look at the water and sunsets. Bath house was immaculate and warm in a cold January. Such a nice retreat from the masses on 30A. I would highly recommend this park. Sure the summer would find it packed but perfect for a winter retreat.
Beautiful, spacious campground! Clean bath house and easy access to site. We were in a pull-through site. The Flamingo Visitor's Center is a must stop. Also the Back Country boat ride was worth the price. The guide and boat captain were most informative. The only negative were the mosquitoes in January? We spent three nights and the rate is the Senior rate for the National Park.
