Little Privacy, Water Not Potable
Disappointing campground, not worth the 5 miles of washboard dirt road to access. Sites are very close together with 0 privacy. Trail nearest CG states no pets allowed. Water smelled bad, had slight yellow appearance, and felt slippery, so bring water. In the middle of nowhere, so nice for stargazing. With so much room, we were very disappointed in the layout of the sites. Laundry (if you're okay with questionable water), bathouse (didnt use), dump station. Wouldn't go out of the way to visit.

This is a wonderful 54,000 acre park, very peaceful and lots of wildlife. Deer, variety of birds, Alligators, Etc. The sites cost 16.00 plus tax, very reasonable. Make sure you bring groceries and have fuel, 40 minute ride to Okeechobee. If your into Star Gazing this is your place, this is the darkest place in all of Florida. Many trails to hike and sign yourself up for a Swamp Buggy Ride, 17.00 plus tax. It's a 2 hour trip thru the prairie and Derek is a fantastic tour guide.

Nice RV Site
While the sites are a little close together, we were fortunate enough to be there at a quieter time. We were beneath beautiful live oaks. Some of the park has been damaged due to the hurricane, but you have to look hard. Lots of deer, turkeys, song birds and owls calling. We’d come back if in the area. The bathrooms were nice. The park offers 2+ hour nature tours on the weekends atop high, big wheeled “swamp buggies”

Quiet Wide Open Space
This park is Florida's "Big Sky Country." The park is perfect for stargazing and is a designated "dark sky" area. The restroom and showers are well designed and extremely well maintained. This is a hiking park, so don't expect to drive very far but all hiking trails are also open to bicycles. We'll worth a visit for quiet relaxation and wide open spaces.
