We stayed at Markham for 3 days camping. It is close to Fort Lauderdale. It has tons of amenities. The spots had lots of room to put your stuff and it was pleasant.

Such a great find on our trip to Weston. This park was perfect for running as the roads are quiet and the outer loop is around 3 miles. Very nice pickleball courts as well. My younger daughter loved looking for gators and iguanas, which she found many!

Loved the barbeque areas, and the airfield it is just a treat love watching the planes fly around. The bikers will throw their bikes in front of your cars at any given moment please be careful.

We called ahead to book the jet ski lake. When we arrived, no one was around to assist with the payment.
They even rented the lake to another person so we was forced to leave. I can not recommend this place

Except for the campground, the rest Markham is closed to the public. It’s being used as a drive-through Covid-19 vaccination site with cars snaking around. Still going to rate it a 5 star in anticipation of reopening.

We usually visit this park during the week to bike ride. It connects with the New River Bike Trail. But the park also has remote control planes, remote control cars, remote control boats areas. Disc golfing, shooting range, RV camping area, Mountain Bike Trails, a dog park, butterfly garden, walking trails, picnic areas. Call before you go as right now they are only open on Sundays and Mondays due to them administering the vaccine during the week. Also, right now, during the pandemic there is no entrance fee. Usually there is a per person fee during the week and weekends are free.

Do the RSO's realize they breach safety protocols per NRA? I am an RSO too, and they do some very questionable and downright dangerous things.

E.g. Do not run up to an individual actively engaging the target with your arms flailing and screaming like you sat on a hot coal. It is dangerous and unprofessional.

Additionally, why are the RSO's so condescending at this range? I just left after stopping by to see if they have ammunition for me to shoot. The rotunt RSO at the front gave me a huge attitude and said in a snappy and rude way we're having the same problem everyone else is, then looked at me like I were stupid (opened eyes wide and cocked head to the side while jutting his large forehead forward).

What a poor attitude this place has. Even my hardest shooting instructor in the military didn't have that kind of snappy and b**chy attitude.
