We stayed at this park not by choice but out of necessity since the Spirit of the Suwannee campground was full for the Wanee Music Festival. When we made reservations there were two sites left of the some 30 sites total they have here so we just picked one believing that a site listed for a 25ft pull behind would fit our 24ft trailer. It barely fit lengthwise but did, however the site was so narrow we could not open our awning all the way out and there are several other sites here just like this one. It seems absurd to me that they would list this particular site for an RV, it's just way to small and should be reserved for tents only. We could not even walk from under the awning to the truck without either walking into the site next to us or we had to bend down to get under the awning bar that could not be extended because of our closeness to a tree. We were pretty ticked off about the site when we arrived but got used to it. No one has moved into site 12 since Monday (it's Thursday) even though it had a reserve sign on it so we have basically had two sites which has made it okay without having someone on top of us. Many of the sites are pretty close to one another which is not something we particularly care for, we like having a little bit of buffer between sites since you never know who you're going to be next to. The camp ground itself is awesome being right on the river. Trails run along the river and it's easy to put a canoe or kayak in. There is a boat ramp as well. The cottages look very nice and appear to be pretty new. The bathhouse of which there are two is about the best I've seen, very large showers, very clean and updated. Washer and dryer is available outside under a roof at the bathhouse. There is a kids playground area that looks kept up well. Very shaded throughout the campground. The mosquitos have been somewhat bothersome but hey, it's the south and expected. The dump station is closed. Apparently they are opening up some new sites so you have to use the one at the site and at our site number 13 it's a long distance from the connector on our trailer. As I said, this site should be tent only or for a very small trailer only.
