This is an absolutely beautiful park. A lot of activities for the entire family. Camping cabin is available but you will need to call well in advance because there is only one. There are plenty of camp sites to be reserved year round for tents and RV’s. Canoe rentals are available but do not get there within an hour of closing or they will not rent the canoes to you unless you are a camper there. Wonderful bike and hiking trails as well as great picnic area’s. We highly recommend this and every Florida State Park!

Sorry we haven’t posted for several months. Been a super busy summer and now we can get back into the groove of things around here.
I sure hope that everyone had an awesome summer and that you visited a few state parks!
We will be visiting a few parks during the week next week and will have those articles posted ASAP!

On Sunday May 16th there will be free entry to all state parks except Skyway Fishing Pier State Park.
Even though it is very cost efficient to head to the state parks for a day of fun for the entire family, in these times of hardship it sure does help to save a few dollars on the entry of the parks.
So pack the ice chests and grab the Frisbee and head out to a park today.
Make sure to take advantage of the park locator on this site.
Another awesome event coming up in May.
Friday may 28th-30th. Florida Folk Festival at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs.
That looks like a LOT of fun!! If you are anywhere near this park I would check this one out. Make sure to let us know how it was.
Have a wonderful Month of May!!

This was a really neat little park. No entrance fee’s at all. There is a small covered picnic area with lots of shade for nice lunches with the family. There are 14 miles of walking/hiking trails. The man that cares for the park was such a nice friendly man! We were very impressed with this little park.
The fishing from here must be amazing because there were lots and lots of trucks and boat trailers in the parking lot.
The launching fee is $5.00.
Another nice thing about this park is that they post all upcoming events all over the park. Sometimes smaller parks are more intimate and in tune with the community and therefore it feels like they care about the surrounding area and its residents.
There are nice little hotel rooms to rent and stay a while at this park and I do recommend that. They are shady and quite cozy. Fire pit out front and a picnic table. We really enjoyed our visit to this park and suggest that if you want a nice place to put your boat in the water that you come here. I also would love to just sit back along the river and read while Travis and Austin fish.
Thanks for such a nice experience Econfina River State Park. We will be back!!
