This park has 30 RV sites, 20 Tent sites and 14 Rental Cabins. Paved roads & RV pads, some with wooden decks. Plenty of room between campsites. Water & Elec. connections, fire rings and picnic tables at each site. Dump station. Large clean Bathroom/Shower and laundry facility. This campground has a small motion-activated water park for the kids. Wide paved streets for riding bikes and walking. The park is peaceful and quiet. There is over a mile of raised boardwalks through cypress swamp and a bottom-land hardwood forest trail. The Rangers are very friendly and keep the park clean.
