Overnight at Florida Leon County's Coe Landing RV Park

Coe Landing is a small county park about 15 miles west of Tallahasee, FL situated on Lake Talquin in the Talquin State Forest.  We stayed here a couple of nights while visiting the granddaughter at FSU, so not much time was spent in the campground.  However, we found it to be very quiet and sparsely populated.

 There are 20 sites, 6 of which have a river view and 2 of those are pull through.  They all look pretty level and are of sand and gravel. All are full to partial shade.  We had 50/30/20 amp service.  It appeared that at one time there was sewage, but now only a dump station.  If you don't have a reservation, show up, find a site not marked "reserved".  Pay at the pay box.  It's an honor system and eventually the camp host or park attendant will take care that you are legal.


The "land" side of the loop.

Our morning wake-up view.  Nice being on the "river" side.

Sunrise on the river. From the dock below our site.

 Between our site and the next site is a stairway from the loop road to the camper's dock.  Tie up your boat, fish, or just enjoy the serene river area.

Sunset at the boat ramp. There is an aluminum floating dock on either side of the boat ramp.  The boat ramp area has a pavilion, parking, and portable johns for day use. There were fishermen/woman there until dark thirty.  We were told the fishing is good here.  The day park is very popular for fishing.

There is also a wooden dock to fish from.  Last minute fishing before the sun sets and the park closes.

Some flora around the day park.
