Overnight at Leon County's (FL) Coe Landing Campground

Back again at this great little county park on the west outskirt of Tallahassee. Great for visiting the Tallahassee area or overnighting if heading west through the panhandle. Or just relaxing a while. Quiet, shady park and friendly staff (of one). 


The park has 20 campsites, most well shaded.  We always stay in #7 as it is level, shaded and has a great view. The sites are level, gravel, with 30/20 amp and water. Only three sites are pull through and six along the river shore.

The loop is paved and a little challenging to larger rigs, but we've seen it done.  Sites are well laid out and space and/or shrubbery between neighbors.  The bath house is a little dated, but kept clean.

The park is a popular day park for boaters and fishermen. This section is adjacent to the campground and has a pavilion, picnic tables, two aluminum docks at the boat ramp and two wooden docks for fishing or relaxing.  Found the locals to be really friendly folk.

A vacated chair on one of the wooden docks. Late evening.

There is a short boardwalk through a swampy area near the boat dock. Interesting short walk.


Bald Cypress trees line the boardwalk along with a few other types of trees.

Exclusive to the campers is a stairway and dock. Fish, relax, tie your boat up.  Pretty good view of the heavens at night as there is little light pollution.

An Anhinga dries its wings at sunset.

Our early morning view. A little haze over the river.

Still morning waters.
