Florida State parks and Pets

I just looked and much to my surprise a park that used to ban pets, now allow them in the camping area.
It's been many years since I looked but it's a good sign
I wonder if it's true with all of them or some may still ban pets.

From the Florida State Parks website Welcome to Florida State Parks

For everyone's enjoyment, including pets, please observe the following pet camping rules. Failure to abide by these rules may result in the camper being asked to board the pet outside the park or check out of the campground.

Pets are not allowed in any state park cabins.
Pets must be vaccinated against rabies. Owners are not required to show proof of vaccination.
Horses must have proof of negative Coggins test.
Pets must be confined, leashed or otherwise under the physical control of a person at all times. Leashes may not exceed six feet in length. Pets that are tethered at a campsite cannot be left unattended for more than 30 minutes. Pets may not be tied to trees, bushes, tables or shelter facilities even when the owners are present.
Pets must be well-behaved at all times.
Pets must be confined in the owner's camping unit during park quiet hours, 11 PM - 8 AM.
Pet owners are required to pick up after their pets and properly dispose of all pet droppings in trash receptacles.
Any pet that is noisy, dangerous, intimidating or destructive will not be allowed to remain in the park.
Non-furbearing pets, such as reptiles, birds or fish, must be confined or under the physical control of the owner. Some animals may be prohibited on park property. Captive wild species, whether native or non-native and barnyard animals, except horses, are prohibited.

If it's a State Park, then I would have to assume all their parks are pet friendly. I think it's rare these days to find a Park or CG that doesn't allow pets. Most of the restrictions I see are dogs over 50 pounds or certain aggressive breads. I think there are just too many travelers who own pets to just flatly turn them down....no pets....no dollars

We have been in many parks in the last 3 years ,no problem with our pets..just some others not behaving, mostly the owners.

We did go to a KOA in Orlando a few months ago. The pet policy stated no large dogs,so we made arraignments for a sitter for our lab. When we arrived it was like everybody left their small dogs and brought their big ones

It was a good 8 years ago when I had last checked and they didn't allow pets. I wonder how long ago it was when the policy was changed.
I had to look for a private CG near St Augustine once because of pet restrictions, and never went to the keys for that reason.
This a great now, I can go

The only state campground in Florida that I've been to that doesn't allow pets is the Krul Recreation Area in the Blackwater River State Forest - at least they didn't when we camped there last year. It's the only campground in the BRSF that doesn't allow pets, and I have no idea why they don't allow them.

We just came back up from Florida pan handle and stayed mostly at Florida's State Parks. The only restriction, other than normal rules, was NO PETS ON THE BEACH. Ft. Pickens [National] also had the same restriction. Supposedly, there are a few private camp grounds on the water front that allows pets on the beach, but don't remember which ones. Also, there are pet beaches at some of the Florida public beaches, but didn't look for them.

If you are looking for beaches where dogs are allowed, Carrabelle, FL is a good choice. They are not allowed at the state park, but are allowed on Carrabelle Beach.
