With the park open for day-use it's great to see visitors in the park. Camping, programs, events, rentals and our nature center remains closed at this time. The campground is slated to open Thursday, May 21.

While we were closed under the direction of the CDC and our Governor our team of dedicated ranger's were busy getting things done. Some projects we completed are: New decking and rails on one of the footbridges along our beautiful yellow trail, painting of many of the park facilities, patching potholes, campsite rejuvenation and much more.  

Spring is in the air and the wildlife is very vocal especially the birds. I've noticed a few pairs of great horned owls with their fledglings teaching them to hunt. All our young eagles have fledged and we are eagerly awaiting our first Florida Scrub-jay fledglings of the season.

When you're ready we hope you come spend some time connecting in nature with us. We will be ready for your visit.
