The State Park is fine. $5 for our truck to enter. Plenty of parking. Trails were shady but not alive and exciting. Foster's home is worth visiting. There was a tractor show in the park to interest all the visitors.

It's one of those places tucked in the middle of no-where worthy of a visit. We visited friends who were staying there and they gave us a mini-tour. Who knew Stephen Foster had never been to Florida. The museum was interesting. Worth a side trip...More

We stop here often when traveling from South Florida to Georgia. Nice place off I-75 to take a break. Excellent gift shop too. We are addicted to the homemade fruit salsas for sale. They also have folk artists and musicians sometimes.

We went to see the Christmas lights. OK for a small town display but since we were there during the weekdays nothing special was going on. Even the "craft village" was closed and the carillon has been off due to electrical problems for months. So...More

This park is prone to huge events that sell out hotels and campgrounds all around so check the calendar and take the trip. It is one of the top 10 Christmas lighting events in the South. We go yearly. The parade for the town kicks...More
