"A detailed yet concise guide to coastal and beach camping on county, state, and federal lands in Florida. Molloy's blend of cultural and natural history with valuable first-hand information about camping in 24 different parks makes the book unmistakably valuable to veteran Florida campers and a 'must-have' for first-timers."--Jeff Ripple, author of Florida--The Natural Wonders

Filled with pictures and practical tips, this user-friendly paperback guidebook offers down-to-earth, detailed advice about the 24 best ocean- and gulf-front camping areas in Florida for both tent and RV campers. From Fort Clinch in the northeast, down to Big Pine Key, and over to the Gulf Islands off Pensacola, Molloy selected these state and national parks for their scenic beauty, recreation potential, and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico. His list includes everything from ultra-rustic to highly developed sites, all compactly organized by geographic region. Accounts of each site feature:

#65533; an overview of both the site and the surrounding area; #65533; a description of the shoreline and its features; #65533; details of the campground, including pictures, amenities, and seasonal features; #65533; notes on the human and natural history of the surrounding area; #65533; guides to local activities, from snorkeling to bike trails; #65533; descriptions of local attractions, shopping, and dining opportunities; #65533; essentials of how to make reservations and get there, including phone numbers, driving directions, size of campsite, facilities, regulations, and more. For visitors and residents, retirees, college students, and families with children, this book will simplify the coastal camping experience. Johnny Molloy has done the research and provided the best selections from over 1,350 miles of shoreline so that you can easily enjoy the best of the Sunshine State.
