We really loved this little campground. We had a great site right next to a pond with a nice shade tree and close to the bathhouse. The owners/operators were really nice and helpful. The wi-fi worked all the time up by the office, and we had pretty good reception at our site most of the time. In fact, we were able to watch Hulu and Netflix on our computers without interruption the nights we were there. The campground is in a fantastic area---very beautiful with a lot to do. Saw many, many alligators. Many seasonals, but they were all super friendly and helpful, too. It was quiet at night. Bathhouse is adequate; the showers were hot and free. Don't expect luxury here. Just expect to be greeted with a smile, to see some amazing sights, and to have a camping experience in a real "old timey" type Florida campground. Be sure to stock up on food supplies before you go in. Shopping choices are VERY limited in Everglades City, and you will have to drive to Naples to do any real shopping. There are a number of restaurants in town, however. We are planning to go back next year and explore the area more, and we are planning to stay at this cool little campground.
This is a wonderful little campground. The tent sites are spacious and private, the owners and staff are friendly and helpful. My two grandchildren, ages two and three, had a great time playing in the sandbox, and though it was too cold this time of year to use the pool, it looked clean. Restrooms and showers were clean. You would never believe that this place would be so close to Portland and the hustle and bustle of Freeport. In the night we heard coyotes yipping and owls hooting. Very pet friendly with a nice walking trail. In the summer the campground offers a lot of activities, like Christmas in July and lobster feeds. We enjoyed a nice fall weekend of camping at Blueberry Pond and plan to return again.
This is a nice state park. The sites are well spaced and quite large. Park staff are very helpful and friendly. My only complaint with the park is that the handicap facilities, as far as the shower goes, are woefully outdated. I have severe arthritis, and limited mobility, and found them impossible to use. The bench seat in the shower is old, cracked, vinyl, unsanitary and slippery when wet. There is no hand held shower head, and worst of all, no dry place to sit in the shower unit to get dressed, though the space is plenty big enough to accommodate a bench. This has NOTHING to do with the condition of the bath house. It was very clean, and the staff checked it numerous times a day. For the average camper, this is not an issue. Just for those of us who have limited mobility for one reason or another. This being said, I would still return here, as it IS a nice park in a good location with a great staff.
This state park is close to Gettysburg, and we used it while touring the battlefields. The sites, while not as private as some places we have been, were adequately large, and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean. Showers are free. I have arthritis and have limited mobility, and the handicapped facilities here are some of the best I have seen. Camp hosts were nice and helpful. Store on premises had good burgers and fries. I would stay here again.
