A Visit to Bahia Honda State Park

Lazy Lakes and Key West were good to me, but it’s time to go. On the way back I came across Bahia Honda State Park. I had read a review that called it the most beautiful state park in Florida, so I decided to stop and see for myself. If all of the campsites weren’t taken, I would have stayed the night. Instead, I took the pictures you see here and headed on, without knowing exactly where I would go next or where I would overnight.

    Absolutely gorgeous, Greg. If you don’t already have your return itinerary set – Wakulla Springs (Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park) is the place I’m always raving about and is located approximately 15 miles south of Tallahassee, FL. (From the south you would take Hwy 319 north from coastal highway 98). Typically this time of year they have a large number of Manatees “wintering” there and offer a riverboat ride where you can see gators, many species of tropical birds and the manatee swimming by. Also off Coastal 98 in that area is St Mark’s wildlife refuge and St George Island is south of 98. All along coastal 98 from St Mark’s through Apalachicola, FL (a quaint fishing village) is an area called “The Forgotten Coast”. I love the funky “old Florida” charm of it and about an hour and 1/2 further east of St Mark’s you can switch off 98 to 30 A south to visit St Joseph peninsula (T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park). Whatever you do, enjoy and safe travels ! .
