We rented RV sites 18 &19 and cabin C-4, for 4 nights . The campsites were nearly directly on the Suwannee River, a very scenic and largely undeveloped river, about 12 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. The sites are spacious enough, though are of a graveley surface. The hook ups are set up in some for pull thru and...

The sites on the water are Awesome, sites are nice....would be nice with a little more gravel or something. The park is nice, great if you have dogs. Restrooms are very clean, as well as the laundry facilities. Everyone is so nice, staff and campers a like. Although, I do believe it's a bit on the high side.

Spent New Years weekend camping with friends. We had three different RV sites. All were set up nicely. One couple was right on the river! Definitely recommend river front especially if you have a large window to look out of. The view is beautiful. Enjoyed having coffee in the morning looking at the beautiful view.

The camp grounds are perfect. Love the site and scenery. The cable is sketchy. Lots of static. Rented a boat and was charged extra for gas when we shouldnt have been. My husband was told $20 for the gas. When I got to the office, I was charged $25.

Good morning Kim, We are sorry about the cable, I do not know if you came into the office to say anything about cable line or not, but we do have wonderful cable and very clear, we could have had our maintenance man come over and check your line out. About the extra gas, your boat rental price includes the...

My husband and I loved it there. It was beautiful. Like camping with mother nature but with all the convinces. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We plan on going back. We brought our own boat and did not worry about it being left at the dock because it was well lit with security cameras. We sat out by...

You told us when you left that you were going to send in a bad review because you could not get your money back for one night. Our reservation/cancellation policy is NO secret. It is all listed on our website. Maybe it is a good idea to do a little bit of home work before making a reservation. We do...

Had both camp sites and cabins which is what we wanted. Some sites are on the water, nice view. Cabins were ok, had all the amenities, but a bit too pricey. Pool and spa were heated and clean. We rented their pontoon boat, not that nice but did the trick. Over all place was picked up and clean. Now their...
