Luv camping here! Large private sites. There is a fresh water lake and sites along the river. Lots of hiking on trails. Plus just minutes to Gulf! Sites have water electricity table and spit for fire with a grill.

The only comfortable time to go camping in south west Florida is in the winter. Otherwise, you'll be dealing with extreme heat and bugs.

It can be pretty dusty. Really nice place, very quite while we were there. Beautify park with lots to do. Great with our pups!

No cable but having water and power is nice
