Excellent Campground many with full hook up. Wild turkeys are all over the place. The staff are very friendly. Springs very busy during the weekends. We will return to camp again.

Prudence, I don't know for sure but I would think tubing is okay. I doubt there is a renatl place nearby. Try calling the park. I'm sure they could tell you.

I know there is a swimming area so you should be able to scuba dive. I don't think it's very deep though.
