Three Days At Rocky Bayou State Park
We had a wonderful four day stay at Three Rivers State Park, but Monday rolled around, and it was time to move on to the next stop on our schedule. We headed approximately 120 miles further west in the Florida panhandle, and wound up at Rocky Bayou State Park in Niceville, FL. This is the first time we've ever been here, and we are NOT disappointed. This is a small park, but definitely a nice one. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here anytime. Gary picked out another TERRIFIC campsite for us. It's big and shady and has a view of Rocky Bayou through the trees across the street. The immaculately clean restroom (so Gary says) is only about a hundred feet from our campsite, so he's happy about that. The campground road is paved, so it was a nice smooth ride coming in. The park has all the typical things that most parks have, like hiking trails and various picnic areas. Gary has explored them all. Since we're water adjacent, there's a boat ramp here and canoes and kayaks can be rented. TV reception is limited, but at least I've been able to catch some of my favorite shows. I LOVE the campsite. There's nobody close to us, and that's always good. Squirrels are EVERYWHERE, and I had Gary pick up a couple of bags of peanuts at Wal-Mart so I could feed them. All in all, we've had a good time here. However, it hasn't been all fun (no fault of the park), and I'll tell you all about that in my next post. Stay tuned!
