We're headed to Manatee Springs Sp in mid March. We love hiking, so it sounds like it should be fun.

Hope you enjoy Manatee Springs. We were there in Dec. It is out in the rural part of Florida. Quiet, heavily wooded lots. We were in the Hickory side of the camp ground and had the area to ourselves most of the time. Be sure your dogs are treated for ticks and fleas. We did find a tick on each of our dogs.
You can go in town to the library and get internet access or McDonalds. We took a day trip to Cedar Key and had a great lunch at Tony's Restaurant. It is a little over 30 minute drive.

If you have been there before then you know the area. If not let me know and I will add more to this.

Thanks for the info. This will be our first trip to Manatee Springs. Our dogs are protected from the fleas, but they'll have to use the tick collars for the ticks. We've heard from others that this is a great park to hike in, so we'll see.

I don't know why, but have noticed that small ticks are a problem when we camp in the Ocala area (including G'ville and Manatee Springs).

South of there in Orlando and Tampa they are not a problem... lots of great camping in this area, just be prepared.

You might be right about northern fl & the ticks. We were at florida caverns back in january & found both dogs had a tick on them. I nabbed 1 crawling up my leg so bug spray in order as well.
