A PIECE OF HISTORY
Beautiful park with an incredible historical suspension bridge. Sites are primitive with elec., water but NO sewer on the sites. There is a community dumping station. Bathrooms and showers are impeccable. Recommended for UNDER 40' feet rigs. Florida's Taxpayers have given us a gift with O'Leno!
Old Style Florida Park
O'Leno is one of Florida's oldest state parks - and it's showing a bit. The sites are smaller than others in the state - with a bit less privacy between them. They're all in a basic circle configuration.
The road getting back to the campground is dirt, and pretty rough.. and a bit narrow. We were able to get our 35' bus back in tho.
The park itself - well, there's just not much to do. The swimming & kayaking has been shut down for a long time due to low water levels. There is hiking... which was nice.
Be very aware - the ticks here are a real problem. There's a reason there are signs posted everywhere, and strong chemicals sold at the ranger's office. In our few hours there, we each got one.
All and all, not a bad stop for a night on our way out of the Florida - but this isn't one we'd be tempted to route towards again.
