Nice COE park. Restroom problems have been corrected. Many waterfront sites with water access. Our neighbors on both sides had boats pulled up on their shoreline. Areas between sites have been left rustic. Lots of privacy, trees and shade. Great cell phone reception, but only picked up four TV stations. Very friendly camp hosts and workers.

Still only $20 per night. Escort to site. Sites are tight and pads are narrow. Many lakefront sites, one has a dock. Campground is close to restaurants and shopping No cable but excellent digital TV reception.

A nice park just south of White Springs on US 41. Pull-thru sites are gravel, but there are some back-ins with concrete pads in the back of the park. Nice clubhouse with satellite TV, but no cable. Lots of trees and birds. Two nature trails that we didn't explore. Several full-time mobile homes near the front entrance. Potluck suppers on Wed nights and breakfast Sat mornings at the club house. A quiet friendly park near I-10 and I-75. New owners are welcoming and anxious to please. PA and Good Sam discounts. Would be a 10 if they had cable and a pool.

We stayed here for a week in January. The weather was warm enough to sit by the pool and walk the beach. There is a little restaurant you can walk to 1/2 mile east that serves a wonderful breakfast. The campground is right across Rte 98 from public beach. The terrain slopes slightly uphill so all sites have a view of the water. This campground is in a great location to explore Carrabelle, St George Island and Appalachicola. This part of Florida suffered damage from Hurricane Dennis last summer, but most places have been repaired. The state park at St George Island is still buried in sand. We will definitely come back again this year when the weather is warmer.

This park is good for an overnight stop. It is close to I-75. There are a Waffle House and Denny's next to the park entrance. Many sites are occupied by seasonal residents. This is a Passport America park, but the discount is only available May 1 until November 1. We would stay here again for an overnight.

A nice State Park. Campground is about 1/2 mile from park entrance on US 41. One section has a playground, but no pets allowed. Other half of campground allows pets and has 5 pull thru sites. Hiking trails and roads connect campground to swimming lake. Campsites are private with lots of trees and tropical plants. Park is very quiet at night. Firewood and ice is sold at gate and each site has a fire ring. Volunteers clean each site between campers. Restrooms are clean, but not heated or cooled. Park has a swimming lake with a small beach. Some tent sites are directly on a small stream. There is no cable TV, but I saw several satellite dishes in use. Park is near shopping, restaurants and Gulf beaches.

We stayed 4 nights in a tent in the Shady Pines section. Be sure to bring plenty of long-sleeved shirts and insect repellent. But the beach makes up for the bugs, it is beautiful. We found great seafood restaurants in Mexico Beach and Apalachicola, about 20 miles away. Next time we will come a little earlier in the year and try to avoid the bug problems.
