About: A favorite destination for canoeists and kayakers, Blackwater River State Park offers opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities. The river is one of the purest sand-bottom rivers in the nation, making this park a popular place for swimming, fishing, camping, and paddling. Shaded campsites are just a short walk from the river and a picnic pavilion overlooks the river. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy strolling along trails through the more than 600 acres of undisturbed natural communities. In 1980 the park was certified as a Registered State Natural Feature for its exceptional illustration of Floridas natural history. One of the largest and oldest Atlantic white cedars stands among the many that line the river and in 1982, it was recognized as a Florida Champion tree.
This campground consists of 30 campsites with three accessible sites on two loops nestled among tall longleaf pine trees. Each campsite has 20-30-50 amp electric service, potable water connections, sewer tap, a picnic table, fire ring and grill. Campsites range from full shade to full sunshine. The sites can accommodate all types of tent camping and up to 45-foot RVs. Pets are welcome. A playground is available for the kids. From the campground, the Juniper Lake Trail opens up to the unspoiled beauty of the Blackwater River for hikers. A newly renovated restroom with showers is located in the center of the two loops. A dump station is located on the main entrance road.
Maximum RV length = 45 ft.
