Discover an incredible ecosystem that can only be found in the wild terrain of Florida State. Blackwater River State Park, named after the tannin-rich waters that tint the river golden brown, is a truly amazing slice of nature where visitors can get a taste of what this part of the country was like prior to inhabitation.
The campground is full of amenities, so you won't have to "ruff" it just because you're outdoors! Full hookup options are provided, as are paved roads and a dump station for all RVs. Each site has a campfire ring and grill along with a picnic table, in addition to the picnic areas with shelters. It'll cost you $4 per vehicle to enter the park and then another $20 fee to stay at the facility each night. Drinking water is available, making your visit here even simpler.
With this much diverse plant and wildlife around you, you'll never run out of things to do at Blackwater River. The park provides interpretive nature programs where you can learn about the longleaf pine/wiregrass ecosystem in detail, and bird watching is very popular here. If fishing is more your thing, grab your pole and head to the river to try your luck at landing a catch while standing on a beautiful white sandbar. Take your pooch out on one of the many hiking trails at this facility or even partake in some geocaching, as this location is home to 20 different cache points.
Four-legged visitors are permitted in the park as long as they are kept on a standard leash throughout there stay. Be conscientious of park areas that do not allow dogs and always clean up after your woofer so canines stay welcome here.
