Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, FL

Well, I've been remiss in blogging!  We were at Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, FL on 4/19-21/13 and I'm only now posting!!!  Bad, bad, bad!

This was a great trip and a nice, large drive thru site (#5).  Lots of deer (came in and wandered around our screen room/picnic table while we were sitting right there - with the dog!)  No fear.  Even saw a pair of adults with a PAIR of twin fawn!  Very cool!

Funny thing - we've never had a problem with animals getting into our cooler - until now!  (In the Smokey Mountains they had signs posted everywhere to keep all food inside your vehicle/camper.  Never gave it a thought here until Saturday morning when we got up and our breakfast (eggs/sausage) were scattered around the campsite.  Assume raccoons had a feast while we had to go out for breakfast!)  Needless to say we kept the cooler secured after that!

This campground is on the Suwannee River with a boat ramp, etc.  Lots of rain this trip but still didn't dampen our trip.  Campground also had live music one day - something they do a couple times a year, I guess, so check with them before you go so you can plan accordingly!  It was nice!  Good times!
