    Expensive fee to get in, compared to any Florida State Park ($5/per person here, $6 per car load at state parks). While the Forest Service subsidizes the logging industry to cut down our national forests, they don't price this recreation area so you can afford...More

    Price of admission is by person which is more expensive than Florida state parks. The campgrounds are nice and the cool spring water is awesome on a hot day. The nature trail was nice but short. I would not recommend any canoeing unless the water...More

    The campground has designated camping areas, many of the sites are wooded and they all have bear boxes. I didn't look closely to see if trees would accommodate a hammock, but they looked substantial.

    Why did we have to pay 45$ to finally get into the park and can't do a thing? We can only wade in the water, can't even jump feet first right off the side wall. This place has gone down hill and you took everything fun about this place. Very upset and very unsatified. Drove over 2 hours for this....

    unfortunately I feel the same way they charge an arm and leg to get in and they stripped away best part of the swing area, my only positive thing to say is nice camp ground and great for kayaks not good for us swimmers.
