Theresa. One more question. By NB do you mean New Brunswick? My wife's family hails from Moncton.

We also lucked into a 9 night stretch in one of our favourite parks, Gamble Rogers, near Flagler Beach. (Quote)

That was one of the Florida parks we didn't care for. Spent a couple days there 2 years ago. Prefer Sebastian Inlet, but recent searches show no sites available January or February

Really? We've stayed there three times and have always thought it was a very well run park with excellent facilities.

David---yes, NB is New Brunswick. Small, small world that you have ties here!

And Mary and Bob---we've never been fortunate enough to get into Sebastian Inlet.
What about Gamble Rogers' didn't you like?
They apparently have opened up some campsites on the river side. over 40. easier access to canoe/kayak at the boat launch.

And thanks for the tip on the Alabama park. We will keep it in mind when touring that way.

Gamble Rogers was to us just a dirt strip along the highway with small sites on each side of it. Not a great beach either. We were also told that since access is not restricted it becomes a frequent party site, although we never experienced it.

Hi: theresa p...We're already booked into Gulf St. Pk. for the later half of Feb. Be wonderful to camp with you. They seem to be like Georgia St. Pk's. They don't assign you a site till you arrive there. We've never stayed there but giving it a try anyhoo!!!

Hi Theresa!
Suggestions for additional Florida Panhandle /Gulf Coast area State Parks to consider as winter destination.
*St. Joseph Peninsula (aka T.H. Stone) - located on a spit of land jutting into the Gulf of Mexico. Features top rated beach, hiking, biking, kayaking, wildlife viewing. Features two campgrounds with trails between the two.
* Ochlockonee River State Park - Natural setting with some riverside campsites.
Features many trail areas for hiking, biking, kayaking, wildlife viewing.
* Bald Point - camping not available. Located near Ochlockonee for a short day trip. Offers great beach walks, nature trails, fishing, kayaking,and excellent bird watching opportunities.
Note that winter weather is a bit cooler in the Panhandle than you will find during the same time frame in the Keys in Southern Florida. Additional info can be found on Florida State Parks website and Reserve America.
