Campground is very popular. The grounds are kept exceptionally clean and manicured. They're sights have water and electric not no sewer. They do have a dump station. Most sights are waterfront. Only three are not. However they are located in the center of the park and are pull through sites. They are close to restrooms The park Has two bath houses with hot and cold running water and are handicapped equipped. Rest rooms are always very clean. The north side of the river has a fishing pier and fishing is available at the camp site. Swimming is available but you need to travel to the south side of the river. Has boat ramps on both sides of the locks. There are also 8 boat slips but you must sleep on the boat to use them. Park is very busy on the weekends. Very difficult to reserve during the winter months as the snowbirds arrive in mass. Overall it os a great park close to the major city of Fort Myers.
