Site #17 at Bahia Honda State Park, Florida?

I have this spot reserved for a May trip and it has this note on the reservation
"EXTENSIONS FOR ELECTRIC AND WATER MAY BE REQUIRED".

How long will my water hoses and electric cables need to be? I will be in a motorhome and will most likely pull straight in to get the view through the windshield.

I carry extension/spare sewer slinky and white water hose - the typical ~15-20' reaches. Also a power extension cable of ~20' length. Don't use them often, but when they have been needed have proven to be enough.

Right now I have a 15' extension for my power, so I have roughly 40' of cable. I think I have about 35' of water hoses. But I want to make sure I have enough of both of them, otherwise I will have to drive a long distance to get what I need.

I don't know how long an electrical extension you may need, but if you leave any food outside or in a tent the raccoon s will drive you crazy. VERY aggressive. Will eat thru knots to get to any food. Even off the table with you beside it. Great place. Watch the sunset from the top of the old bridge

As I remember from our time there as hosts, the water hookups are sometimes located in the FRONT of the site instead of towards the rear. Power hookups or closer to the rear or about 1/2 down the site.

I would bring 50 feet extra of fresh water hose,and 25 feet extra of power cord.

The picture on the Bahia Honda website shows electrical pedestal about 1/2 way in on right as you face the site from the road/circle ... that's also the right as you face the water/bridge. I can't see water connection in picture. It looks like you could reach the pedestal (if RV is pulled in nose first) by pulling the standard cord under the RV. That's assuming your utility compartment is on driver rear side. If you pull way in to get close to water you may be further past the pedestal. I think your position will probably depend on your slide-outs clearing the pedestal. Have a look at picture #3 for that site.

We will be in 21 in November for 2 weeks

The spigots for water are at the street and have Ts to connect two sites so the water may not be on the correct side. We were in 18 a few years ago but darn if I can remember what side the water was on. We have 2 25' hoses plus the on board hose reel. All of that reaches most any site connection. I think all of the electric pedestals are on the drivers side when backed in but not all the way back so you may need a 25' extension or so. We also drive in forward so the front windows face the ocean so we need an extension but it is well worth having. I think ours is 50' and along with the MHs cord it reaches np.

If you are into snorkeling make sure to take the trip to Looe Key.

In the attached pictures it looks like the water hose is running across the site toward site 18 which is also attached. I believe my 40' of power cord will work, but I will need to get some more water hose. On the passenger side I have a short bedroom slide only. This should be OK for the electric pedestal.

Yup ... looks like the pedestal is behind the boat in 17 and in line with the person in 18. Looks like long hoses are needed but electrical is OK.

Also being my rig is short (33' 5") the power cord should be able to run straight over to the pedestal. My power connection is also on the end of the DS.

I have 35' of water hose, so I will get either another 50 or 75 feet of 5/8" hose.

When I referred to "Front", I was referring to the street side. Sorry I wasn't clear.
