Chassahowitzka River Campground

We have pictures I'll post - as soon as I find them!!!  Meanwhile...about the park:
 
Formerly a private park, located at the eastern edge of the 30,000 acre Chassohowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and directly on the beautiful Chassohowitzka River.  It has  88 campsites, 35 with full hookups, 17 with water & electricity, & 36 with no hookups and tenting is available.  The restroom facilities are clean, comfortable and adequate for the park, with flush toilets, hot showers, dump station, laundry and even a small camp store located on the premises.  The sites are well shaded and pets are allowed.  There is a boat ramp and dock which is very busy with rowboats, padddle boat, kayak & canoe rentals.  There is a playground, facilities for picnics and hiking trails.  The boat ramp is often busy with power boats as well.
 
The Chassohowitzka River offers five springs for exploration, two very near the boat ramp and we saw manatees frequenting the springs areas.  The river, itself, is very swift and has a strong current - canoes and rowboats should not venture very far unless powered by motor.  There are varieties of both saltwater and fresh water fish as this river leads directly to the Gulf of Mexico on the West Coast of Florida.  This is a beautiful wild Florida river to explore with many estuaries for side trips into the wilderness.
 
Directions:  From the junction of US 19, US 98 and CR 480, go 1 3/4 miles west on CR 480.
