Safety Updates

Beginning May 21, as part of our phased re-opening Florida State Parks began offering limited camping availability for our guests. For the protection of both staff and visitors, cabins will remain closed until June 9. At parks where camping is offered, there may also be measures in place to reduce density while honoring current reservations. For details on specific parks, please visit their webpage(s).
