Description: Another great Florida State Park in the Keys! We were in site 17 with water/electric (50A) with paved roads and level pea gravel pads. Native plants separated the sites nicely and we were right on the calm Atlantic Ocean! We used the bathhouse for showers (clean) to conserve our tanks. The park’s day use area is separate enough from the gated cg to give us quiet days. There is a nice paved bike path across Hwy 1 which we used often with our friends. Located midway along the chain of the Keys, with Publix Grocery and KMart nearby. Close enough to Key West for a couple of day trips!
Activities: We were here with some great friends! I still don’t know how we all managed to get 5 sites together here for two weeks. There was Dan and Tricia, Bruce and Laura, Rick and Gail, Bill and Nancy and us all together relaxing and playing in the tropical paradise! I ‘lost’ many of my pictures but we took an evening trip to Key West with D&T, B&L, and R&G hitting some shops and restaurants. Another day trip was in order with D&T and R&G to check out the Southernmost Point and walk around some more. Plenty of nature right there at the cg. Our first visitor was a big iguana right at our door! We all paddled our Sea Eagles in the mangroves around the park a couple of times and saw really huge iguanas then. We also saw some nice property for sell $$. We all peddled together on the nice bike path across the highway. I know I lost several pictures of this. The group also went out on the Sea King for some deep sea fishing on a very windy day. Unfortunately, Gin and Nancy got sick. The rest of us had fun though. We spent many hours visiting each other and just relaxing at our sites. The water is quite shallow but we all spent some time floating. It was a wonderful couple of weeks!
Trash and Recycle: Dumpsters near the dump station with full recycling! Glass, plastic bottles, aluminum cans and cardboard!
