Midway Campground (Big Cypress National Preserve), Ochopee, FL

Date of Stay:  Thursday October 24 - Monday October 28, 2013 (4 nights)

Rate:  $15/night (Access Pass discount)

Website:  Midway Campground Big Cypress National Preserve (FL)
   US 41 (mile marker 52)
   Ochopee, FL 34141

Description:  Paved road and pad with 50A.  Potable water at the dump station if needed.  We started with a full tank so we did just fine.  We were on site 14 which is as far from Hwy 41 as possible.  No one else was here when we first parked and then, we only had one or two other campers join us for the week end.  Great stopover on the way to the Keys or a day at Shark Valley.  Had to swing out onto the grass to back in since the road and sites are narrow.  Volunteers work here for about three months starting in December.  All sites face a pond which does have a resident alligator.

Activities:  Very quiet here but thankful for the 50A service.  One day trip was to the Oasis Visitor Center where we saw lots of alligators, fish and migratory birds.  Another day was spent driving Loop Road which is not paved so the Suki got quite dusty.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpsters and recycle cans available during the winter season but not at this time of year.
