Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This quiet, historic park is a great spring getaway, but it’s also fun in the fall. Tent campers are far from being the first ones to overnight here. American Indians had a village here at least 1,000 years ago. During their time here, these aboriginal Americans built mounds that still stand today and are the reason for this state park.

Lake Kolomoki Campground is the newer of the two campgrounds. It was designed with RVs in mind, however, which leaves the Tall Pines Campground primarily for tent campers. Lake Kolomoki is laid out in a classic loop with pull-in and pull-through campsites. Campsites 1 through 11 are stretched directly along the water. Unfortunately, shade is limited. Campsite 11 is the exception and is shaded and scenic. Campsite 18 has shade and solitude. The loop curves away from the lake and climbs a small hill past a new bathhouse. The sites back here are less popular than the lakeside sites. Tall Pines Campground is located within walking distance of the park swimming pool. As its name suggests, tall pines shade a mostly level area. In the level area, the campsites are spread out beneath the trees."

This place rocks. We stayed at primative site #3 and it was great. All by itself with 2 tables, 2 grills, an outhouse(you can drive over to the fancy ones for showers and more modern bathroom conveniences). For 20 bucks you can have up to 20 people and as many tents as you want in this huge clearing. Also great if you have dogs, they can run free in the site. Burial mounds very interesting. The park itself is huge with good hiking trails and very scenic. The park staff was also very friendly, helpful and pleasent(Florida state park employees could take a lesson from these folks).
No doubt that we'll be back. Also, head 40 min. north on 27 to providence canyon for some fantastic scenery.
