Camping here for 7 days in January. Make reservations early. If very remote area is what you are looking for, this is the place. Miles of hiking and horse back riding trails.

We stopped on our way heading to the Everglades. The campsite had a picnic table and fire ring. Bathrooms were very clean. We took several hikes. Both short but saw buzzards, herons, deer, raccoon and a couple of gators. Great place to see the stars.

We went in the hottest part of the summer but still managed to get a breeze. Campsites in heavily treed areas are nice. But the real attraction for us was the dark sky at night. The park is a certified "Dark Sky Preserve". The Milky...More

No special reqs at regular camp sites, but the astronomy pad sites request you keep lights low as much as possible. Check with ranger station for details.

There is a large area with tables near the ranger's station but I'm not sure about staying after the gates close at sunset. Call Natalie in the office, she's awesome and can answer your questions.
