Florida Parks Visitor Reviews
3/20/2017 10:54:35 AM Estero Bay Preserve State Park by frequent visitor with my dogs
Dogs in State Parks - I believe that dogs should be allowed in state parks on leash. Dog owners that allow their dogs off leash are no different than the visitors who leave trash, do not honor the park fees or disrupt other park guests by not keeping their children under control.

enjoyed our short time - We will definitely be back. The park was recovering from a flood the day before, but we were able to see the springs. The Rangers were very pleasant and helpful. We will come back when we can swim.

Fun place to visit - We had a most enjoyable time here. It was a surprise. The volunteers and craftspeople were wonderful, and very generous with their skills and knowledge. Betty Brecht, the violinist, the spinners, weavers and, especially, the blacksmith all had wonderful presentations. We enjoyed watching a nail being made.

Introduction to the Keys - This park was a gem. We had not been to the keys before. While, the campground was full, we did not feel crowded. The campground hosts were all helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable about the amenities and area. The Park Staff was more mixed. One was very helpful, but a second was rude and dismissive.

A very meaningful experience - We arrived on a busy holiday weekend. It was our first experience in a Florida State Park, and we were very impressed. The campground, trails and staff were wonderful, and the tram tour, led by Kevin, was the best nature tour we ever had. We highly recommend this park for a quality experience.

Favorite Park. But the roads need repair - Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Wonderful sugar white beaches. You can even camp right on the water. Great for fishing. Friendly park personal. But the roads through out the park are horrible. Pot hole and cracked pavement everywhere.

Great Road Trip Stop - Our family stopped at Falling Waters State Park while we were on a road trip to Jacksonville, FL. We had such a great time there creating family memories by the waterfall, exploring the sinkholes and playing in the lake. There are also more trails there that we did not get to go on, but there are some picnic tables near the lake that we ate our lunch at.

Bad Roads - As a frequent bike riding visitor to this park, I am dissatisfied with the poor condition of all the roads in the Park. The roads are cracked and have many pot holes. Most pot holes seem to have been filled in numerous times. All the black top roads should be replaced/repaired ASAP.

mcbride - lake should be no wake period! Big money on lake is buying you out. Why should my tax dollars pay for something only the few can use. Open it to all or drain it.
Trails are not for hiking. - Trails are poorly marked and are nothing more than fire breaks. What you see in the first 100 yards is what you will see for the next 2 miles.
