Many potential volunteers and visitors wishing to visit CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm from afar wonder where to stay. We always recommend renting a cabin at Gold Head State Park as it's only a five-minute drive away. There's also tent camping and plenty of activities...More
This was our first time here with our 22ft travel trailer. This is definitely a very dog friendly park. We stayed at campsite 54 which was on the Lake loop, partial shade but 46, 47, 48 had much more shade. A lot of bugs here...More
I am a fan of Florida State Parks. Gold Head Branch has a nice variety of trails, campgrounds, cabins, a ravine, and 5 different lakes on the park property. It is a large park. The only downside is that some of the lakes have been...More

The initial property was donated by Martin J. "Mike" Roess (pronounced "Race") and developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was launched in 1933 under President Franklin D. Roosevelt to combat unemployment during the Depression. There is lots of information on the net about Martin J. Roess.
