    This place is disgusting. They advertise they have sparkling clean restrooms. They look like they have not been touched since they were built in the 60s. There was trash on nearly every surface and it smelled like sewage. The campsites offer ZERO privacy. The “fire rings” are truck tire rims. Unless you are white trash, stay far away from this place!

    We camped here Labor Day weekend 2013 by the suggestion of my fiancé’ who had previously camped at this location years ago. After this past weekend’s experience it is obvious that this camp site is not what it once was. When we arrived at our 50 amp hook camp site we discovered that it was no more than 20 feet wide and directly on top of another so called 50 amp hook up site. A camp site this size may be all well and good for a tent or two, but is by no means suitable for even a medium size camper. So if you plan on backing in and hooking up with anything bigger than a tiny pop up I strongly suggest you book two spots if you want room to put out your porch set up.

    Once we set up it became obvious that the power on our side of the pole did not work, lucky for us we were able to plug in to the next camp site. When informing the office of this we were told “oh I will put an adapter on that for it to work”. Not sure what he meant but putting an adapter on an old breaker that won’t hold does not fix anything. Throughout the weekend as more campers showed up it also became painfully obvious that the sewage hook up system has not been serviced in years because we were able to smell it all weekend.

    The staff was just OK……despite the fact that we were camped in the first site behind the office, and were constantly in the store for purchasing things and getting coffee we were constantly questioned if we were camping there. After the first day of renting tubes we were given one tube that didn’t even make it in the water before we had to blow it back up, and continued to have to refill it all day. That night when asking for a refund we were told “oh well that’s why we give our campers a dollar off rentals, you guys should watch out for sticks!”

    Thankfully due to the great company of friends and the location of the park directly across the street we still had a nice weekend. If you are looking for a nice clean camping experience I would strongly suggest another location at Itchetucknee.

    I’ve used kayak and canoe shuttle services from Michigan to the Keys, this was the least friendly and least service for the money I’ve ever encountered. Used their services for a shuttle of two kayaks. Was told by the owner it was easy to load and unload boats…I’m a healthy 66, but it wasn’t an easy launch or recovery. It was about 70 yards to launch and over 100 yards to reload boats and that was uphill. He basically lied. Then they charged by the boat ($9 each) but didn’t help with anything. Just gave a ride back to launch site (maybe 5 miles) leaving car at recovery area. Why did they charge by the boat? Told me he didn’t help with other people’s boats. Not someone I’d trust or use again. My recommendation, go somewhere else.
