Update on our trip to Florida

Our travels have been every bit as great as we hoped for. Here are a few comments about our Florida camping experience:
WP Franklin COE Park outside of Fort Myers: WE LOVED this park. We stayed 8 nights. Although we didn't have a sewer connection or wifi, the plusses so outweighed that negative. Almost every site is waterfront on the Caloosahatchee River. We sat on our site and watched dolphins swimming, saw a manatee, and loved everything about this park.

Myakka State Park in Sarasota: Another good choice. We stayed 3 nights. This campground has 3 different campgrounds. We were in an older loop and things were a little tight. We did have a sewer hookup here and that was nice. There is so much to do in this park, especially if you like the outdoors. We took an airboat ride (only $12.00) and saw lots of alligators and lots of different birds. They also have a tram ride around the park. We enjoyed the birdwalk (a boardwalk that goes out over the lake). They do not have wifi on your site but it is available at the cafe/store. Our Verizon service was a bit spotty. We would love to go back to this park again.

Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Hobe Sound: Another good choice for us. WE have nice level gravel pad, sewer hookup, good verizon coverage and lots of TV channels over the air. Wifi is available at the Kimball Education Center in the park (available 24 hrs a day) Again, there is lots to do right in the park. They have horse trail rides, nature walks, bike paths, an observation tower on Hobe Mountain where you can see the Intercoastal Waterway and the ocean. There is so much to do in the area too.

Our next stop will be Anastasia State Park near St Augustine. I'll report on that next week.

Thanks for the update. It's always good to have a first hand review and information about sewer connection is always helpful.

you will love Anastasia too. We have been to the parks you mentioned, and, we live in Stuart (near Jonathan Dickinson), and agree with your assessments. We head , tomorrow to Blue Springs, then Lake Griffin SP . Have Fun in the Sun -- Sewer hookups are not so prevalent in Fla.
