The camping site was excellent! It was very peaceful and had electric and water. Dump site for the holding tank was easily accessible. My husband, sons, and grandson found the lakes to be amazing fishing areas. We will be back as often as possible!

What a wonderful park, great wide open camping area, plenty of hiking trails and bike paths. The fishing is very good. My scout troop really enjoyed our weekend camp out. The drive is very reasonable from Bradenton

My overall rating is a 3, but only because of the few amenities that some campers may want. If you want peace and quiet, pretty lakes, Florida birds, good electric and water, and a clean bathhouse, then this is the place for you. The staff...More

We live in Arcadia and go to Hardee lakes a few time a month. I think it's one of the prettiest and well maintained parks I've ever been to. We recently bought a travel trailer and decided to spend a few night at a campsite...More

Set out in the backcountry, this lightly used park has miles of roads, camping, geocaching and fishing on multiple lakes.
