I couldn't be happier with our stay. The campsites are spacious and very well maintained. There are also many activities for families. Friendly staff! The price per night is also below $30.

Went mountain biking and had a great time. The bike trails are well maintained and a challenge for any skill level. Park staff very professional and friendly. A beautiful Florida State Park.

So disappointed this camping trip....the 2nd of 2 nights was bad....quiet hours are supposed to be 11:00 P.M.

The kayaking here used to be phenomenal, however they have taken away the beautiful shaded kayak experience. Now you can paddle around for a while in the hot sun, and it's OK if you don't mind the heat, but it's nothing like how it used...More

Have been coming here for the bike trails for about five years. Started when my 1st kid was in a pull-behind trailer. The mostly paved access road along the railroad tracks is super for our three little kids. First on balance-bikes, and now on regular...More

This is a large state park near the ocean, with two campgrounds, one with full hook ups and one with elecric and water. Biking is very popular, as there are extensive trails for this activity.

All of the above answers are correct. However, swimming is never a good idea at Jonathan Dickinson State Park. They do have canoeing and a boat trip that are good and lots of bike trails. Hobe Sound beach is the closest... More
