Beautiful wild Florida. Park is finally reopened in phase 2. The playgrounds are closed due to the covid19 Pandemic. I am disabled and staying in site 36 for 11 nights. I took a slow .7 mile stroll to Osprey lake and back today. I saw large fish in the creek. A bunny in site 35. Lots of birds and squirrels. I met 2 of the camp hosts during my walk. One was riding a bike. The other was walking 🚶‍♂️ his dog. Very friendly staff and had good recommendations for local beaches and restaurants. My site is level

Stayed 2 days here at site#17 for $24/day. The site is mostly shaded and will handle 19ft trailer and towing vehicle (yeah, at least 4 to-and-fros) in tight maneuvers. All due to untrimmed bushes and shrubs and overgrown covered the road and in the campsite. Above statement can be said for almost all sites here. All hard packed sandy road, trail, and campsite. Our site was right next to trail leading to single wooden picnic platform, a small bridge bring you pass a small black river, and the swimming pond where fatal gator attacked in 1973. Bathroom with showers and toilets are dated, but clean. All facilities are convenient if not for constant shutting down for repair. WiFi screen room has seating area and the signal wouldn’t reach to our site and that is just across small creek. On the park map; picnic area, camp loops, pond, beach area, restrooms are logically layout... and they were! Just only falling into disrepair.

Very nice park & the staff is good. The park is clean. The restrooms could use some fixing / modernization. Park is in a good location to visit Sarasota, Osprey & Venice. Would give a higher rating if we did not have to use Reserve America to book a site. We find that the confusion, miscommunication & total mess of booking with Reserve America & with the “day of” booking with the park staff is difficult, frustrating & unnecessary. Wish Florida & other states would dump Reserve America & hire some of their state citizens to do the bookings. I am sure it would be far more successful.

Very nice park. We did not see any trash around the park and we take several walks/hikes a day. There is a lot of poison ivy throughout the park so keep an eye out around your campsite. Showers near our site 23 were wonderful! Lots of hiking and biking trails and also links to the paved Legacy bike trail. You can ride the Legacy trail to the Venetian waterway trail all the way to Caspersen Beach to hunt for shark's teeth. We will return.

I have been fortunate to stay at many of our great state parks..,

With Oscar Scherer you will not need to venture far beyond your physical campsite to find trash from previous campers.. we have now stayed at three different sites at Oscar Scherer.. and all have trash just beyond site.

It reminds of asking your child to clean his/her room and they push it all under the bed.. (throw trash out in Palmettos)

Also, bring a LONG water hose.. we had a 50', but needed longer, so rode up to Walmart (which is close) and purchased an additional 25'. Reason.. you share water with adjacent site.

If you're a bicycler.. note.. they close gate off Legend trail early.. so if returning from dinner.. may be a challenge to re-enter Park.. use main gate..

If you're a birder... there are many..

Some beautiful sites... some... not so ...

Regards,

Tod

Loved my stay here. Site was private, with lots of vegetation. Park was completely booked but really quiet. Note that park prohibits pets in waterfront sites, online reservation system identifies these as 60-80 but they are actually sites 68-98.
