Our May Rally is May 2nd - 4th at Florida Caverns SP in Marianna, Florida about 35 miles south of Dothan, AL

Here is some information about the park;
This is one of the few state parks with dry (air-filled) caves and is the only state park in Florida to offer cave tours to the public. The cave has dazzling formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones and draperies. The Chipola River and a freshwater spring provide areas for fishing, canoeing and boating. Florida Caverns State Park is popular for camping, picnicking and horseback riding. The park also features a nine-hole, New Deal-era golf course set in beautiful rolling terrain. Multiuse trails near the campgrounds offer six miles of exploration for hikers, bicyclists and horseback riders in the woodlands along the Chipola River.

These are open rallies and All are welcome to come join in, for newbie’s to this group this is a gathering of all kinds of campers just for camping fun, fellowship and of course plenty of eating. We will get together Friday night for meet and greet (grab & growl), Saturday night for dinner with a theme and will have an outing of some kind to venture away from the campsite. So you'all come join in for a great camping adventure!

Kitt and I took our kids to Florida Caverns a couple years ago. The one cave that you can go into is not big, but it's very interesting. It's not really handicapped accessible and there is a section that you have to double over to pass through because the ceiling is low. But if you can walk down the steps to get into the cavern and then walk hunched over for a few yards, it is well worth the time spent. There is a nice interpretive center there, as well.

When we were there, the blue hole was off limits for swimming due to contamination. I don't know if they have rectified that situation, but I will tell you those blue holes are about 62-68 degrees year round. Brrrrr.

We'll have to wait and see if we can do this one. We're going to Alaska in June(cruise) so I'll be saving up all my vacation for that.

My son and I went last spring, and really enjoyed the tour. We also rented and canoe and went up river a ways.. Blue hole was open for swimming, but we decided to skip blue hole, as river was running very fast from spring rains and we caught a strainer and went swimming when we didn't intend to. No damage or loss, other than one cell phone that wasn't in a dry bag.. just a cold swim from rented canoe. makes you sit REAL LOW in canoe after and do all you can to stay stable as you take all the bends in a fast moving river.

Hope to make the trip with you guys again.

This sounds interesting, I know they have limited sites there so we may jump on one soon and try and make this one. Sounds like this may work for another trip to PCB after the rally. The one at Whitetail Ridge worked out well for that trip.

Chock Full o' Nut & wannavolunteerFT, Thanks for the info and stories, we hope you can make this rally!
crudeman, I hope you can make it as we had a blast at the last rally and it is only about 1.5hrs to Panama City.
This campground has 32 sites with 50amp and full hookups and as of right now only two have been reserved, but with this being a popular park don't let it slip by for to long and forget to make reservaions cause this park fills up quick!
We have site # 32 and will be there from Wednesday to Sunday, so y'all come join in on another great rally!
Mark & Janice
