Decent experience for being in the city. Road noise and feeling a bit claustrophobic in this compact little campground is to be expected I guess. Clean bathrooms and good concealment between most of the campsites sites made for a pleasant stay.

Great Spot To Relax
Relaxing spot close to amenities. Class A rigs should stay away and leave this gem for us medium-and-under folks. Rangers are awesome, facilities are well kept, and there’s a decent amount of shade. Most sites require a little work to back in and level out, but it’s worth it.
If you want a place that isn’t a springs or a noisy boat ramp or overrun with partiers, this is the place.

It is a shame when any state park turns away cyclists. I called and asked about primitive sites in which the ranger responded yes they did and quoted us a price of over $20. From that price I confirmed they were primitive and he said well, yes, they all come with water and electricity but I don’t have to use them??? I then had to explain the definition of a primitive campsite. Where do they find these rangers???

We love this park. Close to everything and has a good energy to it. We return every year now.

Nice, small park. Trees could be trimmed a bit more (hate hearing them scrape the roof). Not all sites are level. We were in 22 and it is severely sloped. Used all my jack pads to lift the rear up. Some are more level. Website doesn't tell you which ones are level.
Restrooms are good.
Not much activity in the park. Just lake access and big playground for the kids. Good area amenities though. Has a nice pet area that is hemmed in by bushes and trees. But good to let dogs run free.
Also didn't like busy 441 hwy. Hard to turn left out of park in rv.
We were in a 35ft class A.

We stayed here because it was close to family. Park rangers were so friendly and they all knew about our two cats walking on leashes. Small campground and the buffer zone between campsite are perfect. We plan to stay again next year. It is so close to everything. It is a really nice park.

First time staying here. We chose the park because of its proximity to Mt Dora. There is a big craft festival there every October. The park has a fair amount of acreage but, little of it is accessible. The campground is clean and well kept. Only forty sites but we had plenty to pick from. The campground was never full even over the weekend. Unless you bring a boat or rent a kayak or canoe, there really isn't much to do at the park. The park is pretty and well maintained. The mosquitoes were fierce but that could have been because of the storms this fall. All in all, a lovely park right off the road and close to many places to visit.
