Located ¾ of a mile from the picnic area just off the Florida National Scenic Trail, these two primitive sites are located and fully equipped with leather couches, flat screen TV’s and a brand new jacuzzi. Wait what?! Ok, so maybe by leather couches we meant picnic tables, by flat screen TV’s we meant fire rings and by jacuzzi we meant group pavillion. So, pretty much the same thing. Sites accommodate up to six people each and make sure to bring plenty of water since you won’t find any here. Like the good ole’ Leave No Trace campers we know you are, the park thanks you in advance for hiking out all the trash!

Awesome facilities, quiet, inexpensive, water level in lake should be elevated!
