This is a large state park near the ocean, with two campgrounds, one with full hook ups and one with elecric and water. Biking is very popular, as there are extensive trails for this activity.

We are wanders and volunteers. We had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer in the Kimbell Environmental Education Center. JDSP is nearly 11,000 acres and is more of a 'preserve' than a 'park', in my opinion. There are several hiking/biking trails and an off-road mountain bike...More

This park is so large and offers so many activities that it begs for multiple visits. It seems well maintained, though there are signs of recent wildfires. The kayaking is a treat, giving us a chance to see alligators and turtles as well as leaping...More
