I can't remember our site #'s. However, the website stated that our sites were full shade and if there was shade in our site I'm Santa Clause. The bath houses looked like the originals built by the CCC. The swimming area had no access for small children. you walked down the steps into 6 feet of water. I won't return.

We had sites 49 & 50 in tents. All sites have picnic tables, fire ring/grill and water/elec. Centralized trash bins and 1 dump station in front of bathhouse. 2 old bathhouses in loops. Sites are very sandy and when we were there very dirty. I took my GS troop camping and we collected in our 2 sites 10 grocery bags of trash and my girls were still pulling stuff off the ground. We walked to the spring area and we collected 3 more bags on the trail to get there. I also own a motorhome that is 35 feet and there is NO WAY this is suitable for big rigs. In fact the website says 30 or less. I would say 25 ft or less or you won't have anyplace to park your vehicle. There is lots of underbrush between sites and the picnic area is very nice with a cold spring that the manatees come to in the winter. We were there for the manatee festival which is held in Valentine Park down the road. They have shuttle buses that transport you back and forth. The park has canoe rentals and a boat tour, cabins and a park store. There are trains that run right outside of the park about every 45 minutes all night long and the farms and houses nearby have enough poultry and dogs to keep you awake if the trains won't. I live in the area so luckily I can visit for the day but I would not ever camp here again.

The park itself has a lot to offer as far as wildlife and canoing. The manatees migrate in during the winter months and you can spot a few gators and otters. The campgrounds need some work done to them. The restrooms need to be cleaned up. Unless you are camping straight across from the restrooms, the access to them is horrible, especially at night when it is dark. They have small paths that wind through the woods which are not cut clear and marked very well. I was out with my camping group of 11 families and we had people tripping over little stumps and having to stoop under branches. If you are camping alone, then the sites are fine. But camping with a group, the sites are isolated. The sites on the back side of the loop are very uneven, so make sure to have levelers. There is also a train track that runs right next to the park. Last year the trains ran all night and blowing their whistles. This year it seemed that not as many came through during the night. I would camp again if they fixed up the campgrounds a little, but not the way they are now.
