Another great Florida State Park

We set off on kayaks to explore river, but quickly went back to store and upgraded to a skiff because of the wind and the work it would've taken for the return trip!

Great place to rent a canoe and head up river to Trapper Nelson's old homestead. Lots of wildlife along the way to enjoy. Easy paddle up.

My kids enjoyed the nature center. It was interactive for kids. It was small center but still was quite a learning experience. The park was vast. We went on the walking bridge as my kids are younger but it was perfect.

We camped at the Jonathan Dickinson State Park while visiting Hobe Sound and Jupiter. The River section was under construction so we stayed in the Pines area. The park was clean and dog friendly.
