lol, I can do bridges, but really try to avoid them. Key West would only be by boat or plane.

There is a small community just short of the park entry and there may be a little more than the two gas pump we saw outside the party store.

Several years ago we flew to Miami and rented a car and drove to Key West.
It was fun and I'm glad we did it. Key West was also fun but we just happened
to be there during some sort of sail boat regatta and darned near EVERY bicycle on the Key was rented. We finally found 2 way out on the fringe and I think we paid like $100 for 5 days but bike riding in Key West is awesome.
Traffic actually tolerates bicycles.

We were standing on a street corner when an old grizzly geezer rode up on a
total piece of crap bicycle. He had a bent up rusty basket on the front.
In the basket was a boat anchor! He tossed the anchor out on the sidewalk
and walked into a bar! I was laughing so hard I forgot to take
a picture!

Around where I live, if you ride on a main road on a bicycle you are taking
your life in your hands.

I concur with St. Joe being awesome. If we ever get back to Fla it will be either near the town of Port St. joe or near Ft. Pierce. I miss the water a bit now living in the mountains and my boating season is cut in half! But Florida has changed so much and some for the worst in my lifetime. The old Florida I knew growing up as a kid is getting harder to find these days.

There is ample fuel on Cape San Blas and in nearby Port. St. joe. You need not to worry about running out of gas. We shop at the Piggly Wiggly there in Port. St. joe but there is the Cape Trading Post and their prices are decent. If you go you MUST eat at the pizza place in down town Port St. Joe called Yo Mommas. It is really good. My New Jersey Italian brother in law said it is the best pizza he has ever had.

KyDan - please post pics and narrative on how your trip goes! DW and I are starting to get to the point in our lives where we will be able to take extended camping trips and FL is on my list for winter.
I did some work for Brown-Forman in KY. Nice people there not sure if you work there

In case you haven't already seen it- there is a discussion thread with
a video and a photo here--
Florida Panhandle not so good to us this year

You can get lucky in the Panhandle in the winter but we weren't excited
about the weather we had.
St. Joseph Peninsula SP is a very nice little park and I recommend it-
just not in February.
If you do go be SURE and bring your bicycles!!
Choose the Pines campground if it's hot and sunny. The breezy
campground is better if you want sun on your site.
Pay attention to site length. Seemed like the Pines had more small
sites but some large enough as well. Breezy sites were more open
and I -think- more were on the larger size.
Both are fine as long as the weather cooperates.
