Fishing was poor but the water trail through cypress swamp is great! Great picnic area, walking trails, fishing areas for kiddies, and especially good during the week as it's crowded on weekends.

Well kept, clean, quiet place for an early Spring weekend out. Cabin was clean, mini-refrigerator and air conditioner (used the fan only) worked well. Cabin (mine was #7) was right on the water, a real treat. Jan in the office was the best. Cheerful, helpful,...More
