  • A great park to get a nice workout. Also great for seeing birds, deer, the occasional snake, gators, fish, and hogs. There are two primitive camp sites with bench tables and a crated fire pit. Definitely wear hiking boots as majority of the park is sand.
  • I recently camped at Catfish Creek - Site 1. There were eight of us total, four adults and four kids aged five to ten. This is a perfect primitive camping experience for young and/or inexperienced campers. It was a 30 min hike to camp and the trails are easy to follow. After we set everything up and accumulated enough fire wood, we explored some of the many trails. I would say 75% of the trails are sugar sand. We happened to go two days after a hard rain so it wasn't that bad. Overall, Catfish Creek is a great taste of real Florida. I will definitely be going back and camping at Site 2.
