This campground offers a wide range of sites that can accommodate large RVs but also has a couple short trail loops that wind near the scenic Peace River. The main trail loop is flat, wide, and sandy and goes near the ruins of a Chautauqua Amphitheater from 1927 and a strange marker from 1897.
Tent camping is permitted pretty much anywhere alongside the river and there are plenty of remote sites to choose from, many with a “private beach” feel. The campground and trails are lined with oak and cypress trees covered with Spanish moss. Overall this is a good place if you are searching for a fun campground/resort and you just want to cruise around. If you are coming just for the riding, there is not much to keep you busy. The loop is short and speed regulated.
Among the standard campground amenities, the property also offers a laundromat, restroom and shower facilities, a heated swimming pool plus a convenience store. Airboat tours, fossil hunting, fishing, canoe and golf cart rentals are also available.
