On the day we visited, the area had been receiving a lot of rain. The day we were there was perfect, but the trails were muddy or wet with water.

It is a beautiful place to visit. It is actually one of the last quiet places in Florida. We haven't camped there yet, but it is on our list. We did notice Monsanto Has a large office near here.

Just off Route 29, this park offers miles and miles of little used roads and paths that you can explore by truck, bicycle or foot. Many different wildlife area from swamp to Pine and Oak hammocks. Fishing and camping available. Some spots are very remote. We visit this park several time a year and highly recommend it.

Pack a picnic lunch and pack a fishing pole. Ride your bike on the deserted roads or ride in your car.Take a look through your camera and look out for the local critters. It's no amusement park, but it sure is amusing to park, sit ,watch and listen to Mother Nature at its finest!
