History of the Area
Located in Palm Beach County, Florida, the park was established on Lake Okeechobee's shore. It spans over 700 acres of land and water.

Originally a campground for travelers during the early 20th century, it became state property in 1974. The area is known for its rich agricultural history with sugarcane fields surrounding it.

The site offers various recreational activities including camping facilities since its inception as a public space. In addition to this, visitors can enjoy fishing or boating due to proximity to Lake Okeechobee.

In recent years there have been efforts towards restoration projects aimed at preserving local wildlife habitats within the park boundaries.
