Mainiac Posted April 6, 2018 Share Posted April 6, 2018 An interesting 54,000 acre park. It is so far from the city lights and their light pollution. It has become a favorite amongst the astronomers and campers alike. Even the park got involved by dimming night lights and red shields on the building lights. The stars just seem to be so many and seem to jump off the black sky. During the day it seems you can see from horizon to horizon. The view across the prairie grass is only disturbed by an occasional tree or maybe a herd of deer. Hiking (walking) trails, and biking trails are plentiful. We saw small birds, large birds, even alligators. We did not see one plastic face, plastic cartoon animal, nor a neon light. It is a part of Florida you might miss, or not even know exists, unless you get away from the coast. Reservations are recommended as it is so far in, but the staff did make room for us as walk-ins... 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
