    Tony Quintal reviewed Flamingo Campground

    over 6 years ago

    I decided to go paddling to the famous chickees around flamingo. I went to Johnson Key Chikee about 8 miles or 5 miles strait from flamingo (depending the route you take). The Trip was amazing but definitely something an entry level paddler should not do by itself. I when in a 15 foot canoe and i have to say that if i go again i will go in a kayak. I had 2 to 3 feet waves and 10 to 15 mph winds. The canoe was stable for the most part but it took me and my friend 4 hours to get to the chikee going in the 8 mile route. Passing the 2 to 3 feet wave was scary and some times water came in to the boat.

    The chikee is amazing and the sensation that you are sleeping in a platform on top of the water is something else. I highly recommend this adventure to any good pagdler.

    this is basically a beginners and some what intermedium trails. Good for a fast ride and cardio work out. I live in miami and i would not drive there more than once to ride. Definitely, a good park for the people around but not good enough to drive the extra millage to ride those trails.

    By the way no shade at all during the 7 miles of tracks.

    over 6 years ago

    The loop road is 22 miles from the first entrance to the second entrance of the tamiami trail. If you plan to do this trail you should have two cars ( one on each entrance since they are 20 miles apart ). You can choose to go back the 22 miles of dirts road again or the 20 miles of paved tamiami trail back to your car.

    I never done by bike but want to go. I have only done by car about 5 times

    Very smooth trails that flow well. Pretty good park to start dirt and MB. I will name the trail as a cross country type of trail.

    I did not have the opportunity to ride the black and red trails but should be very nice since the green and blue were super fun

    Tony Quintal reviewed Big Cypress National Preserve: Loop Road Scenic Drive (County Road 94)

    over 6 years ago

    gravel road that passes through beautiful water passes in the everglades where you can take pictures and see more of the beauty of the park with out getting dirty and from the security of your car. This road can be done also by bicycle if you are into the sport.

    I like very much this road and i have seen deers, bobcats, alligators and many other species of the everglades.

    Good for first time visitors in the everglades that wish to see the interior of the everglades from the safety of a paved road. The park has some history regarding the park and oil explorations. This park is also good for biking the 15 mile paved road.

    Tony Quintal reviewed Blue Spring Campground

    over 6 years ago

    Nice stretch of river to paddle the entire day. You will see manatees and in the blue spring portion of creek there are huge tarpons that you can not fish :(. during the winter you can not swim in the spring water however the rest of the year is open.

    The spring is impressive, really beautiful and clear water in white sand.

    Tony Quintal reviewed Flamingo Campground

    over 6 years ago

    It is one of the most empty and lonely state parks of south florida. I never camped there but it looks like the only good activity to do is to bring your boat, kayak or canoe to enjoy fishing either the calm intracoastal waters or the open waters.

    I only went there for fishing in the intracoastal and we catch a lot of sharks

    Tony Quintal reviewed Cayo Costa State Park

    over 6 years ago

    This is a semi primitive camping area where your only activity is relaxing on the water. You can go fishing, swimming or reading a book. I highly recommend to go during spring or autumn and also to stay in a cabin. there is no shade in any of the camping spots and no electricity in the park.
    Your only way to get there is by boat, so book the boat first and then the spot. I enjoy very much the calm warm waters and empty spaces.

    Tony Quintal reviewed Canaveral National Seashore

    over 6 years ago

    This national Seashore is big and offers nice waves beaches and a lot of intracoastal for canoeing and kayaking. Fishing is very nice for red drum, sharks, sea trout, snook and tarpon.

    I have been in Mosquito Lagoon for primitive camping. Let me tell you this is the most adventurous camping trip i ever had. i had to paddle about 2 to 3 miles to get to the primitive camping spot in one of the island. Them, i have fished for two days with a body of mine. We were able to eat from our catch all the trip. This is not for beginners in the world of camping out doors or paddling. For example, in the way back my buddy and i had to paddle for 3 hours and a half due to counter current and we also did not bring a GPS. The way back is totally different so i recommend bringing a GPS

    Tony Quintal reviewed Fort De Soto Park Nature Trail

    The best park in middle west florida and my favorite for all around activities including bringing the dogs. If you have dogs and want to go camping, this is a must park. The park in completely pet friendly. There are two enclosed dog parks and a beach dedicated just for them (is the only stretch of beach where you find numerous people and pets).

    I have come many times here for canoeing, fishing, camping and the dog beach. Besides, there is opportunity to do many more activities like:

    kayaking, sky surfing, hiking, walking, biking, historical trips and so on

    top of the notch when it comes to a beautiful natural key in florida. It offers the best beaches of the keys that you can get by driving. The camp sites are very nice specially the ones located in front of the beach. The cabins are awesome, they have everything a simple vacation home can offer.

    For those that like fly fishing, fishing, snorkeling, canoeing, sky surfing and kayaking you can enjoy a nice day here. There is a marina with boat ramp, internet and concession store.

    Very nice calm waters to kayak and canoeing. You can go in between small canals in the park or more open areas of the intracoastal. For the most adventurous and experts paddlers you can go from the park to haulover beach through the inlet.

    good for a day of fishing while canoeing. Use to go on the weekend when i was living in Kissimmee. Always fished for bass in the creek while enjoying the pristine cypress and the nature.
