Welcoming Place
Luckily we got a site at the end of the day. Very nice attendant, Billy, made us feel welcome and eased our stay. Clean, quiet and very nice place. We will be back.

Great Park. I grew up here as a kid and never camped here. What a great space and friendly people. Park Rangers were helpful and professional.

Veey Clean And Quiet
Two sections to this park east/west. East side has very large, shady campsites with fire rings and picnic tables. Bathroom buildings with hot showers...so nice. All the power outlets on the east side are 30amp. The west side has much smaller and tighter campsites but they boast all of the above plus 50amp plugs. There are plenty of places to launch kayaks or drop a fishing line in and see what you can catch in the brackish waterways. There is also a large playground on the west side that would be great for kids around 10 Years old and younger. The park management are super nice and the park is well kept, mowed and clean. I'm here on a weekday in the summer and I'm sure there is over 70 empty campsites. They don't take reservations but it's not too far out of the way to take a shot at it. Both east and west have easy access dumpsites. All in all I would rate this park a great overnight rest zone that won't break the bank... Have a great trip people!

Love it but reservation would be better. No fun showing up to no open spots.

Very Nice Park
Nice park with good size lots. But in warm weather the no see ums will eat you alive. Most of the park rangers are friendly except for the blond headed lady that says she is the park manager. She is rude and hateful and should not be in a position dealing with the public. Great place to stay if you overlook her.

Fun For The Spontaneous Nature Lover
We stayed here over Easter weekend. The bathrooms were very clean, nice hot water and pressure. We stayed in the west campground and had access to the water from our site so we could launch our raft from there. Lots of wildlife. We saw mullet jumping out of the water and birds swiping right in to catch them. The sites were huge with good shade so we didn't have to open our awning at all. Most sites on our end had water access. Big raccoons so if you are leaving anything outside, make sure you lock it up. On our last day after we check out we are allowed to stay in the park so we are planning on moving the rv closer to the beach area and spend the day there boon docking. Only reasons I don't give it a 5 is that it's first come first served on camp sites which makes it difficult to plan ahead on a road trip and that there was no sewer connection at the site so we have to use the dump station. Overall a great experience.

Love It
First of all I love the fact that they have no reservations, only the state parks in the county have reservations. You can show up about any day of the week (Sunday-Thursday) and get a good spot! In the summer it's pretty empty so you can still have lots of spots on Friday if your local.... bring fishing poles and lots of tackle! The sites can be very large, lots of running room for the kids. They have a very large boat ramp. Can launch canoes and kayaks from most of the sites. Great place to play and have fun.

Nice Grassy Sites
Drive around and choose a vacant site, pay at office and enjoy your wide open areas. Good amenities blocks and quiet area away from it all but cell phones work so too tv.

FOUR SEASON FLORIDIAN.
Very nice park. Two separate areas to camp in. We stayed on site 70 (east campground). Nice clean bathrooms, good water pressure and stable pwr. Sites are huge on the canal side. You can put your kayaks in at your site and fish & paddle to your hearts content. The canal goes out to Tamp bay. Bigger boats can be put in at the boat launch and kept at the site. Unfortunately our boat was a tad to big and we had to watch the tides. Problems: The As other campers will agree, the no see-ums will eat you up. I only saw the bathrooms cleaned 1 time during our 5 day stay but they remained quite clean (maybe done at night). I did notice that some sites had 2 fire rings while others didn't have any. Our site had 2 picnic tables but all the sites around us had a table. Just some attention to detail could be required. Overall --- without the see-ums this park would be great. Kudos to Hillsbourgh County and all involved in the park operations.
