Favorite Sites: All sites are good ~ we stayed on site 16 and loved it!

Rate: $30 night • $180 week • $400 month + elec (Passport America honored for 1 night only)

Phone/TV/Internet: We had both AT&T and Verizon good phone service. Our Verizon Air Card worked really good. We got TV with our roof top satellite dish (Direct TV).

Elevation/Landscape: elevation was at sea level and the park is full of grass and has beautiful old oak trees & palm trees scattered throughout the park.

Lighting/Noise: It was very quiet at night and there were lights at the electric boxes but did not shine into the coach.

Hiking/Walking/Biking: A lot of paved roads right in the park for walking and biking.

Things to See & Do: Not much of anything to see and do in this area except visit Cedar Key and eat great seafood. But if you want a relaxing few days this is the place to go. Also Manatee Springs is about 12 miles from this park and you can go and swim with the manatees there & also go kayaking or canoeing. Also you can go into Cedar Key & Kayak or Canoe... beautiful are for that.

Rating: (9.5) Great park ~ we will definitely be back to this park. It is about 10 miles from Chiefland and we have friends there. It would have been a 10 if there had been a few more things to see & do. However you can go into Cedar Key for dinner and witness a gorgeous sunset!

Check in area & ride down to lake

Date of Stay: September 2nd, 2011 ( 14 days)

Weather During Stay: We started out with seasonably warm weather ~ then TS Lee brought us a lot of rain. It was not a direct hit but the outer bands ~ still enough to rain for 2 days. After Lee passed it was excellent weather... around 78 during the day and 58 - 60 at night.

Site Description: There are 3 loops in this park ~ Loop A has paved roads with gravel sites, W/E 50 amp service. Loop B has paved roads with gravel sites W/E 30 amp service and Loop C has paved roads and paved sites W/E 50 amp
service. All sites are level and many are on the lake. There is a problem with ants but if you treat the area around your wheels & jacks and keep your electric & water hookup off the ground you should have no problem. We used comet which was recommended and it worked for us. We also had ant spray which we use around the table and chairs

Favorite Sites: Any of the sites are great ~ the ones on the lake have a beautiful view and all have fabulous sunsets. We stayed on C-28 but saw others I likes better. C-26 & C-24 were nice too.

Rate: Sites are $22 per night but if you have the Senior Access Pass it is half price.

Phone/TV/Internet: We had good service on both Verizon & AT&T phones: Our MiFi Card with Verizon had 3G service and was pretty reliable and our roof top satellite dish (Direst TV) had no problem picking up a signal. TV antenna is spotty.

Elevation/Landscape: Elevation is 152' above sea level here. Beautiful rolling hills with great wooded areas but around the campsites is nice grass and level. Some trees around on sites...

Lighting/Noise: At night it is very quiet and the lighting is pretty much none. During the day was also quiet since school was in and there were no kids here.

Loop B & Loop A

Hiking/Walking/Biking: Plenty of paved roads for walking and bike riding. There are some trails around the area for hiking.

Things to See & Do: Other then Fishing, hiking you can discover the many parks and small town of Chattahoochee. There is the Florida State Hospital that is on the National Register of Historic Buildings; Jim Woodruff Dam; The Historic towns of Bainbridge & Thomasville Georgia.

Rating: (8) This is a beautiful park and Lake Seminole is a very large lake. The fact there is no sewer and the ant problem knocked this down a little for us. However with that being said I would definitely come back again. BRING ant spray!!!
