Quite Small Park
We stayed in lot #14, which was a little challenging to back into when you have a big truck and a 30ft camper. Because the lot in front of us was so close!
The bathrooms were super clean and big! There are washer and dryer there along with a small DVD and book selection.
It was super hard to get cell service or Wi-Fi but the wildlife at this park was so wonderful we didn’t even care.
We saw white tailed deer along with so many birds.
The sky was absolutely beautiful! Miles and miles of sky to look at. We decided to wake up right before dawn so we could see the sky at its darkest time, and wow are we glad we did! So many stars!
This park is extremely quite, so you can hear all the wonderful wildlife.
There is no sewer hook ups at this park so make sure to bring a poo buddy or just use the bathroom on site.
If you are looking to get away from the crazy world and get some peace and quite this is a great park to do so!

Great Little Campground
We camped a week here. We had 30A and water. The bath house had hot showers and were clean. The staff and volunteers were very nice and helpful. Ranger led night hikes were fun. The sky was definitely dark. I would like to return soon.

Little Privacy, Water Not Potable
Disappointing campground, not worth the 5 miles of washboard dirt road to access. Sites are very close together with 0 privacy. Trail nearest CG states no pets allowed. Water smelled bad, had slight yellow appearance, and felt slippery, so bring water. In the middle of nowhere, so nice for stargazing. With so much room, we were very disappointed in the layout of the sites. Laundry (if you're okay with questionable water), bathouse (didnt use), dump station. Wouldn't go out of the way to visit.

This is a wonderful 54,000 acre park, very peaceful and lots of wildlife. Deer, variety of birds, Alligators, Etc. The sites cost 16.00 plus tax, very reasonable. Make sure you bring groceries and have fuel, 40 minute ride to Okeechobee. If your into Star Gazing this is your place, this is the darkest place in all of Florida. Many trails to hike and sign yourself up for a Swamp Buggy Ride, 17.00 plus tax. It's a 2 hour trip thru the prairie and Derek is a fantastic tour guide.

Nice RV Site
While the sites are a little close together, we were fortunate enough to be there at a quieter time. We were beneath beautiful live oaks. Some of the park has been damaged due to the hurricane, but you have to look hard. Lots of deer, turkeys, song birds and owls calling. We’d come back if in the area. The bathrooms were nice. The park offers 2+ hour nature tours on the weekends atop high, big wheeled “swamp buggies”

Quiet Wide Open Space
This park is Florida's "Big Sky Country." The park is perfect for stargazing and is a designated "dark sky" area. The restroom and showers are well designed and extremely well maintained. This is a hiking park, so don't expect to drive very far but all hiking trails are also open to bicycles. We'll worth a visit for quiet relaxation and wide open spaces.
