Bareneckers: Manatee Springs State Park Feb 7, 2016 - We were lucky enough to snag a couple nights in Manatee Springs State Park. Most every site is 25' to 35' RV site and we are just over 37'. Luckily though, there was one Handicap site available that was a pull-through (rejoice) and it was 40'.
Gypsy & The Navigator: Manatee Springs State Park Feb 6, 2016 - From Keaton Beach we continued south to Manatee Springs State Park for a few days. The springs in the park provide a haven for wintering manatees. The turquoise colored springs are what is called a First Magnitude Spring.

Remember To Explore: Silver Springs and Manatee Springs Aug 7, 2015 - The first stop was Silver Springs State Park in Ocala, right at the Ocala National Forest.

Manatee Springs State Park is pretty much in the woods. No cell reception, huge mosquitoes.

Summer List 2015 Jun 24, 2015 - Around April of 2013, me and my best friend Danielle sat down to lunch and started talking about everything we wanted to do that summer.
