Nice campground. Sites close together with some tree separation. Walkable to spring with good snorkeling and kayaking/canoeing options. Peaceful hiking trails as well.

A Lot To Do Here
We enjoyed our time at the park biking, walking trails, swimming/snorkeling the spring, watching scuba divers ( the park has quite an extensive cave system)- you can rent canoes, kayaks, a pontoon boat. There’s a long boardwalk through cypress trees. At the end of it you can see manatees where the spring meets the river. The campground loop roads are ROUGH. It was a real bad drive in our class a. They did some road work while we were there— really wasn’t that helpful. The staff was so helpful each time we stopped in the ranger station. We enjoyed hearing owls and pigs at night. It was a nice stay.

Nice, But Dusty, A Mix Of Good And Bad
After a 6 month drought most campsites and the loop roads were very dusty. Lots of wildlife including gnats. The spring is beautiful with good access. Prices for concession food and drink were outrageous. Sites were very close together, mixing tents with RV'S. Many tent sites had more than maximum cars and occupants. The bathhouse was clean and modern with plenty of hot water. All in all we probably won't go back.

Nice Peaceful Campground
We stayed in December of 2016 and had a great time! Plenty of wildlife and beautiful springs. Campground was clean and the restrooms/showers were old but clean. Can't wait to go again

Enjoyed the park very much, didn't see any manatees while there but the water is very peaceful. No TV reception so bring some dvds or a good book.

There are 170+ State parks in Florida, most of them we have frequented and are for the most part very nice. Not the case for Manatee Springs! This park has a lot of potential but is quite obvious it has a problem with Maintanence. The campground roads are the pits, campsites are not cleaned and maintained. We stayed on a handicap site that when you pull into it, it leaves your door facing the street with no privacy! The sites across from us were tent sites with about four families and about 15 kids. What happened to a max of 8 per site? I could not recommend this park to any of my friends!
