I went here with my daughter and her classmates for a school trip and we primarily enjoyed the large splash pad. This is a great place for family fun. You can do picnics and just enjoy the view!

The campsites in this park are nicely laid out, the palmettos provide privacy between each. The camp hosts on site 59 and 62 were superior--keeping everything clean and providing lots of great tourist advice. Armadillo sightings we're routine, saw a wild pig and heard a...More

The showers were individual, with shower curtains on each. There was a small dressing area in the front of each shower. They were always clean. Excellent campground hosts.
Are there any campsites with 30 amp breakers?
