Florida Caverns State Park

Anyone been there?

We are thinking of that as being our 2nd stop (after our visit with Mike and his Lady for a couple of days ) on our way to Disney. Figure on getting there on a Friday afternoon, spending Saturday seeing the caves and leaving Sunday morning for Disney.

anyone??

we visited the park back in 1998, the caverns are something to see.
the state park campsite is older and has some tight turns.
we stayed in town at i believe it was arrowhead camp ground, it to has some sharp turns. I was pulling a 30 footer then and i almost took out a pine tree on an inside turn.

since your going during the HOT season, please watch the paths carefully and check the weather before you go. When it rains the river comes up close to the paths and drives out lots of SNAKES. we jumped over a rattlesnake that was as long as the path was wide, easily over 6 feet.
but the caverns tour is really worth the time, plus its nice and cool.
on I-10 heading across florida there are a few state park campgrounds and a few nice private parks not to far off the highway.

I was just looking at the park and the longest pad is 40 foot.

My 5'er is 34 foot. I can make that work. My concern will be the tightness of the turns in the park. Park # says they are closed for the weekend but I'm going to try and call tomorrow anyway maybe I'll get someone.

Anyone else pulled a trailer in there??

if memory serves the tight spots are right at the campground itself, tight turn to the left and into the sites. LOT of trees, but .....after IVAN the trees may not be as thick as before


and if you want to stay in pensacola beofre your LONG trip to 75 south,
big lagoon state park in perdido key, which is just the west side of pensacola, real nice state park. real nice waterfont on the intercoastal swimming, great bird watching tower....well worth the climb for pictures
