Oscar Scherer State Park, Osprey, FL
I apologize for the blurry images. This happened when I imported this post from an old blog site I used. The information is still good though.
I’m so bummed! This is the only campground I don’t have any of my pictures of. I had them posted on Kodak Gallery, but when they started to charge people for storage, that’s when I decided to get my own webiste to share my photography. Ugh! I do have a few pictures posted below taken from a friend/fellow camper. (this is taken from a previous email I sent out to a group of campers I know):
Hey everyone! Joanne & Eleanor have already been here and gave it the thumbs up. If you’re looking for privacy, you’ll get it on most sites. Some are even great for groups. You could probably call the rangers station to ask which ones. They made the swimming area smaller, so it’s not great, but Casey Key is only 3.5 miles away in Nokomis and it’s beautiful. Three different parking areas – one has a jetty. The state park has a nice nature center for kids (and adults). Nice trails. Lots of places to ride bikes, canoeing/kayaking, a nature center, hiking & interpretive talks every few weekends. Our site was a pull-thru. Because of the placing of hook-ups, we had to park the truck behind the camper. Lots of people did that. Not a big deal. I’m not sure about the bathrooms. We used the one in our camper. I know that the restrooms by us were out-of-order the weekend we were there.Many sites right on the river too. I think #86 is the one that would be awsome for pop-ups or tents. Two playgrounds. Fishing. It’s in Osprey.
Our site was #102. Other sites I wouldn’t mind staying on are (keep in mind we have a big unit – there are other smaller sites that would be great if we had a smaller unit): 4, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 13, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 50, 51, 52, 56, 57, 58, 63, 64, 65, 68, 73, 81, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104.
Not far away is Historic Spanish Point. It’s only 2.82 miles away. This is a great place to spend a few hours. It’s a 30-acre historical, archaeological and environmental museum. You can read more about this by checking out their link: http://www.historicspanishpoint.org/
