Overnight at Leon County's Coe Landing


A favorite stop-over when heading west or visiting the granddaughter at FSU. This county park is just west of Tallahassee. It is the end of a usually uneventful 5 hour drive on the back roads for us.  We used to stay in site #7, a back-in, but have changed to #11, a pull-through. Both are on the lakeside part of the loop and well shaded. See my previous blogs on this park.


Nice and quiet, shaded, and rarely crowded. Aged, but clean bath house.
Twenty sites with 30/20 amp and water. Level gravel.  Six have a lake view, and two are pull-through.

The "inside" sites are spacious, private by distance and level gravel.

Early morning calm at the campground dock. This must be the camp host's boat. It is always here. And, so is he. Strict, but nice guy.
A new dock this visit. Private lot adjacent to the park.

Cormorant drying off after morning fishing. Seems like he's always here, too.

Blue Dasher dragonfly sips some water from the moist gravel.

In Florida hidden danger almost always means....gator is present.

 Nice pavilion for the day visitors.


 And a short boardwalk gives a good view of the swamp between a portion of the lake and a play area .

A well built boat ramp. This is well used in the early morning and late afternoon. Fishing the lake is big time here. There is ample room to fish, also.

Fish from your boat...

...or the pier near the pavilion.


Someone left us a painted rock overnight.
