Lake Kissimmee State Park - Lake Whales Florida

Just had a 2 day camping trip to Lake Kissimmee State Park in Lake Whales Florida
It was another very peacful and quiet trip - wished I had my fishing license and some bait cause the fish were jumping in the canal - oh well maybe for next time.
To drive it was an hour and a half (56 miles) and I burned less then a half a tank of gas round trip - those are the trips I like to take cause the price of gas will take the fun out of it.
I took my Daughter, Niece and Nephew on this trip.
Enjoy the Pictures

thanks - it was very relaxing - First night was great and last night the mosquitos were bad for some reason.

It was 2.9 miles from the ranger check in station - I was on Site 44 - very roomy site
Site 45,46,47,48 - were motorhome sites but very roomy sites as well

look at some of the site info if you decide to make a reservation on reserveamerica.com - saw alot of nice sites and some sites I wouldnt put my camper on cause they were very narrow or had low hanging trees (probably some tent sites).

Thanks Glad you liked the animal shots

Trailer was great - the only issue (not sure if it really is an issue) is when someone moves in the top bunk the whole trailer shakes so gonna see about getting some sort of a better stablizer for it other then that no issues
