Our First Private Park


Well we finally camped in a private park. It was a K O A in Starke Florida. We had to stay there do to Hurricane Michael doing it’s best to destroy the park we had planned to stay at over Thanksgiving. Our site was 50 feet long and we had a foot in the back and a foot in the front of our rigs. We decided to measure both the Ford and the Kodiak and found out together they are 48 feet in length. So we just fit on this site.

The good thing about our site was that we only had people on the one side of us. The other was grassy. Our site was paved and we had a concrete patio area with a picnic table there. No fire pits are on their sites but you can rent one at the office or bring you own.

Our site had 50 amp service and was a pull through site with water and sewer. That is always a bonus for us. They do have a dump station and we did see quite a few RVs taking advantage of this service. I believe it costs $15.00 to just dump your tanks. They also had a propane refilling station  and of course a set of dumpsters for the trash.

There is a leash law and they do have two areas that you can take your pets and let them off their leash to run around. We just walked Lily on leash.

They had a heated pool but we never made it up there. The laundry area I used and it was nice. They have a couple of them in the park as well as a couple of game rooms and even a library.

We were close to the shops and places you might want to go for dinner. Most were in walking distance from the park.

The people who worked there were pleasant and helpful. They even have volunteers if that is something you might be interested in doing.

It was a nice park and yes we would stay there again. However Norm and I missed the woods and meadows of the state and federal parks. We also enjoy seeing a lot of different wildlife and this park did not offer that.

So over all it was a pleasant stay but we did miss Mother Nature a lot even though we got to do a lot of people watching.

Oh when we arrived here at O’Leno we found we had missed putting our sewer cap on! Thank heavens the valves were all closed !!!!!!!!
