where is the gator? - We love to camp at Big Lagoon. Nice camp sitesand restrooms, and the views are spectacular!

Excellent Beach - Great beach park. I think the navy used it during WWII to train frogmen.

Great Tour given - Very impressed by our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and added some humor to it. So glad that the park keeps improving and making plans for future events! Thanks to all the volunteers!

many changes - many changes and not for the better. Campsites have been shortened. The canoe trail remains but no canoes are available to rent and dockage has been removed. This was once one of the best activities in the park. Many people are not aware that there are only a few sandy beaches in the entire Keys due to an offshore coral reef. This is NOT one of them.

Great camp sites - We stayed here for a night (before we were aware of FREE sites just a few miles away at Dead River Landing) and had a great time. Arrived at night and woke up to a beautiful site right on the water. We paid $20 for less than 24 hours but it was worth it for the bathrooms and running water. We would stay again but as I mentioned there are free sites not that far away (no running water but that is camping).

One of my favorite parks - We only visited for 2 hours but it was well worth it. I have always wanted to see the Suwannee river, and when I saw it it truly impressed me. The grassy, shaded area by the river is beautiful. 5 stars

Great Rangers - My many and heartfelt thanks to Christine ( hope I spelled your name correctly ) and Ron for helping me retrieve my camera tripod from the St. Johns. You saved my trip to the park from being a bummer to a great experience. I Shall return!

Best rangers in Florida - The Rangers Matt and Bob were the most friendly and helpfull in Florida. They made our experience fun and educational

North Jetty - Beautiful setting. But the jetty has become clutter with large fishing rigs and chairs ,leaving a small walkway. I took my brother-in-law out in his wheel chair. Even in this small aisle, I had to maneuver around bucket and casting nets. The people were rude and intimidating. The end area was covered with bait and cut up fish part and smelled awful. What a shame that such a lovely place has been taken over by people who have little regard for keeping it as beautiful and neat as it once was.

Really interesting - Just wanted to thank James for sharing so much information with us. We had a great visit and he was very nice, professional and informative. Thanks.

Where did all the birds go? - We used to enjoy birdwatching at the the park, but now the lake is practically sterile! It is still beautiful, but gone are all the birds, which was the main reason we came to the park.
