I am going to a new one next weekend called Highlands Hammock in Sebring, FL. I've been to 5 different ones so far in Florida. My two favorites were Manatee Springs and Ft. Clinch.
I think we should start a new topic where we rate campgrounds that we visit. Give the pros and cons to help out future campers. Hmmm...I think I will.
The dogs did have a good time. They got to eat hot dogs that I cooked over the fire just for them, and pieces of steak one night. I took them hiking, and let Dixie (the white dog) walk in lots of mud and water because those are 2 of her favorite things. Abbie got to go kayaking with me and she seemed to enjoy that.
I like the idea of rating campgrounds and would be interested in the reasons behind the ratings. For me, the pluses of this campground were how clean it was, hot showers with good water pressure, friendly staff, hiking trails, campsites with nice tables, grills, and fire rings, shade, and good camp office with a decent selection of items to purchase. The only negative for me was that quite a few of the campsites were close together, and I don't like the feeling that I am camping almost on top of the next site. For some people, a negative would be that the nearest town for any forgotten or otherwise needed supplies is about 20 miles away. This is really not an issue for me because I usually bring everything I need and then some.
I haven't decided if I am going camping next week or will be headed to my cabin, but I am going somewhere because the weather looks like it will be nice.
