We camped for a couple nights in January of this year. The weather was very comfortable, just cool enough for a fire. Our stay was basically perfect. Now, you have to understand that these are Teepees, not tents with mosquito netting. So you either need to bring preventative measures, or camp there when the weather is conducive to camping without bug netting. For our trip, since the weather was slightly cool, we never saw a mosquito at all. In fact, we never dealt with bugs of any sort. The teepee is relatively traditional, and you have to open and close the ventilation flaps with long poles, which is easy enough for someone of moderate strength. These Teepees arent 100% water proof, and in rain, they can get wet in the center. Fortunately, the area inside of them is quite large, and you can position yourself accordingly. The Teepees also have a raised platform inside, so ground moisture is of no concern whatsoever. The fire pits at the tent sites have a built in grill, which makes fire cooking a pretty simple endeavor. Trash cans are at each site, as well as metal poles with hooks to hang them on. Also, water and electricity are right there behind the tent, which is a nice convenience. The sites all have a picnic table, too. The restrooms are just across the street, basically, and I found them to be generally pretty clean. Theres also a washout sink behind them if you need to clean dishes, so you dont have to run soapy water all over the ground. Theres also a camp store, open until 5:00pm or 5:30pm, which is a short walk away. They sell some camping essentials (bug spray, toiletries, a little food, smores kits), as well as firewood. Though its stored in a shed, I found the firewood to be a little damp until it dried out, so it may be worth bringing a bag or two of firewood from Home Depot or wherever you get it. Quiet Waters Park is one of our favorites. They have a water park (open depending on the season), Ski-Rixen, mountain biking trails, volleyball courts, lots of good walking paths, paddleboats and canoes on the weekends, and some very good freshwater fishing. Right around the corner from the park, theres a publix, a super target, and probably anything else you need. And if you really want to un-rough-it, there are restaurants nearby that have take out and delivery. Balcon de las Americas is a favorite Columbian restaurant of ours, and its right across from the park entrance. All in all, if you have the wisdom to either come prepared or use the Teepees in fair weather, you can have a really great time. We sure did. If the weather is going to be unfavorable, or if bugs are going to be a major concern for you, try to get one of their pre-pitched tent sites. Unfortunately, there are no sites here for pitching your own tent. For a quick, spur-of-the-moment or last-minute camping trip, the Quiet Waters Park Teepees can be a great choice.
We have camped here several years in a row and never a problem besides some noise. This time I have to say I was extremely disappointed. Rented a few tents with some friends. I had tent #17. There were large rips in the screen of the tent and alot of clips were missing or damaged. Some garbage was left on the ground around the site, and a dirty firepit. Another friend had #16. They also had large holes in their screen. Their firepit and grill were disgusting from the previous campers and never cleaned after. They also had alot of garbage laying around and 2 beat up old chairs that were left by someone. Another friend had #15 but no complaints for their site. Additionally the bathrooms closest to these camping sites were abaolutely disgusting in both the mens ans womens. On top of the park not repairing the tents, it was as if they had no one maintaining or cleaning the sites or bathroom facilities. I complained at check out and all the boy at the desk did was say that he would document my complaint. We will definitely not be camping here again until the park resolves these issues. Definitely not acceptable camping facility even for the one night that we were there. And to point out we are all avid campers so no how to ruff it!
Would be a great place to camp if they werent so strict about EVERYTHING! Stayed for 2 nights and the first night some old lady that lives on the grounds in a trailer must have bothered us until 1am when there was no one in the surrounding sites for us to even disturb. We were told we had to check in between 3-5pm so rushed to get off work early to make it before the office closed, only to see 3 other campsites arrive after 10pm. Very limited parking, the only one of the broward parks that only allows 1 car per. Front office is run by a bunch of high schoolers that care more about their conversations than working; it took 30 minutes to check-out even tho we were the only ones in line. Campsites are nice and well equipped but this will probably be our last time camping here with all the trouble we had to deal with. It has potential but there is a reason that every other park is fully booked a year in advance and yet quiet waters is always available, I would never recommend this park unless you enjoy being frustrated and invasion of privacy.
My favorite local county park! If you have little ones and want to go to the water park, be sure to look up the times and rules first since they have split sessions. The marina now has paddleboards and I cant wait to try them out. You can rent mountain bikes at the Bike America store next to the Ski rixen or across the street at Jims Bicycles. The mountain bike trail is about 6-7 miles and is a continuous loop that starts and ends at the bike wash. Not much shade, but it is great for intermediate riders with a few difficult bypassable sections for the pro riders to test their skills.
I now know how the park got its name! Never camped there, but will in the future. Open to the public during the week, except holidays, but still worth the $1.50 entry fee on holidays and weekends! Wonderful staff, clean areas to lounge around, and a paved bike trail along with advanced trails! Not too far from my house so I pack up my guitar and head out for an afternoon on my bicycle. Plus, when the renaissance faire comes into town, thats an added bonus! Fun for all!
office managers are very rude,.especialy the heavy set older lady blonde, also night security does a poor job of doing his job,. and they like to keep peoples money and not give a refund, and also a bunch of liars,. i would never go back there,.the white heavy sey lady who sits in the back office,.she doesnt care about nothing and a big liar,.that park is getting worse,.

If your from out of town or need to rent equipment do not waste your time. You sit in front of the building behind a gate for 20 min before they will even let you in to the rental shop. Will not let you use rental equipment in the park! Wtf?? Why rent equipment then. Stupid. Poorly run, getto and run down. Driving to owc, well worth the drive.
This is a great place for kids between the age of 2 - 8 ! Its clean with lifeguards on every corner. The only reason Im giving it a 4 stars instead of 5 is because the water park only has that one spot with a few slides and at times it can get very crowded as there are no other rides options. Other than that its a fun place for small kids.
