*** Florida State Parks Fill Up Fast
*** Coming to Florida for the Chapter Meeting?
Come early and join us for three nights and four days of R&R camping at Lake Manatee State Park in Bradenton Florida.
The dates are September 14, 15, & 16th 2021
This waterfront park offers freshwater boating & fishing, plus camping. Though there are no actual manatees, the park's best adventure can be found on the waters of Lake Manatee, a 2,400- acre reservoir considered one of the best fishing spots in the region. Sunshine bass, speckled perch, bluegill, and crappie can be found in most parts of the lake, while catfish and large-mouth bass tend to favor deeper waters.
Visitors can enjoy hiking, horseback riding, and bicycling on 6.5 miles of multi-use trails. Canoeing and kayaking are also popular activities with five miles of paddling trails.
Although no formal activities are planned, there is a lot to do in the area.
