Our chapter's insurance does not cover water activities, so we are not planning a group canoe trip. However, canoes available for those that wish to plan their own trip. To rent a canoe, call (352)[masked]
The facility is divided into a day use area and campground. Campsites are arranged into three loops near the creek and springs. All sites are shaded and equipped with a picnic table, grill, campfire ring, lantern post and space for tents. There are no sites with full hookups: CAMPSITES DO NOT HAVE WATER OR ELECTRICITY. Amenities include hot showers, flush toilets and dump station.

A convenience store with camping supplies, beach supplies, food, drinks and ice cream is nearby. Restaurants, shopping and gas are just 10 miles from campground.
