This was our very first camping trip in our new motorhome. We are SO glad we chose Manatee Springs - it was wonderful - secluded, quiet, shaded, a great first camping experience. Our campsite was huge - plenty of room for our 31 foot RV. The deer were amazing - walking right through the campsites! What a treat! Even our dogs enjoyed it! Everyone there was very friendly. Would definitely recommend and go again!

We had a wonderful time here. The scenery is beautiful especially the wooden walkway by the spring down to the river. Loved all the wildlife. Our site was semi-private. We will definetly be back.

A very nice state park. Stayed in Hickory loop which could be very challenging with a big rig. Definitely wouldn't arrive in the dark. Variety of wild life all around. We saw deer, raccoon, possum and a manatee. This loop is near playground and natural spring swimming hole. Only drawback was a shallow camp site (had to unhitch so as not to block road) and site was in fine, dark sand (which gets in the camper). Bath house was relatively clean.

Our second visit and we had the pull through spot near the spring. Love having wildlife wander through CG. Swam in spring this time and had a nice bike ride. There was also a presentation about manatees and other wildlife. A great park that isnt' too out of the way.

All bath houses are up to date. They stay clean because here is NO SOAP and NO PAPER TOWELS in them. This is really a non issue if you bring germ-x or your own soap and towel. Showers were hot. Sites in the Magnolia Loop (we had site 68) were very nice in size and the natural plants had been left in place. ALL ROADS within the loops are DIRT-no scooters-bring bikes (or Kettle Cars-). Dump station is out of the loop and down the road a bit-not too far. Springs were beautiful...boardwalk out to the Swauannee was very nice with several look out points. Tiny camp store with few items...if you need more stuff, there is a Walmart in town-about 10 miles away. We did finally see a mother and her calf on our last evening there. Had heard there had been more earlier in the day. There were a lot of huge carp and other fish and turtles. Enjoyed seeing the deer-several times a day-behind your site and walking through the site next to you. Pretty neat! Great park. DS says we must go back again next December!
