Lovely little campground that surrounds a large pond. Roomy, treed sites. Great location near Oasis Visitor Center(Gator viewing paradise) and Clyde Butcher Gallery (Modern day Ansel Adams). Stay here - skip the Everglades.

Okay For One Night
My crew: husband, wife and 3-year-old son in a campervan. We stopped at this campground for one night so we could explore Big Cyprus the next morning.
Campsites: when we were there, only about 5 other spots were filled, so it was fine. Had it been more full, it would have too crowded since sites were close together. We had no problem getting in and out of our site since we have a small vehicle, but larger ones had a lot of trouble getting around a tree in the corner of the site. There is no outdoor lighting aside from the bathhouse, so it's very dark once the sun goes down. When we were here, it was very quiet.
Bathhouse: functioning bathroom... that's about it. No showers.
-when we got there, someone else was in our spot. He said there was no reserved tag on it when he got there (no reservation). There was no host or other authority there, so we just pulled in another site since there were plenty available. There doesn't seem to be much management over the campground.

No Cell Reception And Electric Only
The park itself was well kept and there was a nice pond in the center. However there is absolutely zero cell phone reception, even with a booster and it is electric only with a very run down water spicket near the entrance. The park is also in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing to do for many miles.

Sites are narrow and perpendicular to the road. Impossible to back in, unless you're in a van, without going WAY over the grass...that you're not supposed to park on. I have a 30' TT towed by a 20' truck. Our fire ring had a lot of non-burnable trash in it: cans, aluminum foil, etc, that we had to clean out. BTW, folks, aluminum doesn't burn; stop throwing it in the fire. Also, our parking area had a lot of broken glass on it, from a previous RV breaking a window, that we had to sweep up. Our site was on the east side of the lake and we got some really nice sunsets over the lake. Close to a lot of things to see and do...not much at the campground, tho. Electric hookup...a must in S. Florida, & dump station with potable water. Flush toilets, no showers. No cell coverage. $15 with senior park pass, otherwise $30. I thought a little expensive for what you get. 3 stars for difficult parking .

Not The Swamp I Expected!
Beautiful campground around a little lake. Electric only at our site. A lot to see and do but be ready for some driving. Big cypress and a Everglades are vast
