Decent State Park
We love checking out state parks, and this one is only ok.
The park itself doesn't really offer too much. It's very large and spread out, with the campground being 3 miles from the entrance. We went on several of the hikes, but they seemed to mostly be old service roads to the orchards, and not necessarily scenic. They're also very sandy, making it difficult to walk on.
The campground itself is also only ok. It's a very long drive down to it, but the sites don't really offer the sense of isolation and privacy that we've become fond of in other Florida State Parks. The sites are all gravel and very defined, and a bit too close together by state park standards. They offer little isolation between each other, not much of a view and none of them have shade. Other than being in walking distance to two fishing piers, the campground is pretty generic feeling and could have very well been anywhere - so why so far away from the entrance?
But, on the plus side, the park seems to be able to accommodate RVs of all sizes with several very long pull-thrus and spacious back-in sites.
There's also ample LTE signal within the park for AT&T and Verizon, and marginal for T-Mobile.
All and all, just an 'eh' feeling for us as compared to other state parks out there. But if looking to avoid private RV parks in the area, this could be a fine choice.
