Thisi is a wild area. This is a sand scrub habitat, with all the accompanying wildlife and flora. I love this area to sit alone ad think. There is a small parking lot, a hiking trail. If you hike, pack alot of water!!! It is hot, and the path is straight, not circular. If you walk to the end, it... More

We hiked the boardwalks then went down the sandy road. We saw no other people in a half day hike. We did see three bald eagles and innumerable Florida scrub jays. A fair amount of trash down by the lake, but there had been storms recently.

As visitors before me have said, this park is off the beaten path. We enjoyed the trails through the scrub, vie ing eagles, osprey and turkey vulchers. The compost restroom and picnic table are adequate. It's a nice place to hike. Just go prepared with drinking water, sunscreen, and cell phone.

Off the beaten path, have a picnic down by the water, Lake June is awesome. Hike the trails, lots of eagles to watch as well as water birds and ospreys. Great place to go and relax and listen to nature and maybe the roar of a ski boat passing by.

This is a very nice secluded hike along the shore of Lake June, there is not a lot to see during the heat of the day, but nice in the mornings or late afternoons.

Don't expect much here except for a perfect view of Florida scrub and the deep silence of the woods. Hike into the Tomoka Trail to listen to the melodious waters of a black water creek. There is a shell parking lot, composting toilet and a picnic table but that's about it folks. Bring your own water, snacks and sturdy, closed... More

We enjoy small State Parks just off the beaten path. This park fit the bill as we were in Lake Placid for a winery tour and learned this park was close in proximity. The entrance road is paved 3/4 of the drive then a sandy well maintained road leads to a small parking area. A small restroom and a picnic... More

It takes a true nature lover to enjoy this park and we found it delightful. We met one other couple who like ourselves were delighted with the park. Enjoy the sounds of nature. Get out a blanket and have a little picnic. The rare Florida Scrub Jays were seen along the entrance road on both of our trips to the... More
