We are continuing to have a blast traveling around Florida with no reservations, seeing what we can see in our Winnebago Travato 59K camper van. This week finds us at Anastasia State Park in St Augustine. If you haven’t visited this area, here’s what you’ll find. Beautiful, extremely wide beaches that when we visited were practically empty of people… lots of birds and the birds loved having the beach to themselves as did we. It was a great place to ride our bikes too and we took full advantage of that, riding the trails and riding down to the beach.
We stayed two nights and found the campground to be a great “Old / Real Florida” experience. Paved roads but sandy shaded sites made for a great combination. There were tons of sites at the park too but it was pretty full. We made our 2-night reservation a week ahead of time in January. As temperatures warm up we bet you’d have to book a little further in advance to get in here.
In this week’s episode we also met a couple who were staying in the park and recognized us from the channel. That was a blast, especially as we shared laughs about toilet paper. 🙂
On our way out of town as we headed for a longer stay at Tamoka State Park (next week’s episode BTW), we stopped in the take a look at the St Augustine Lighthouse and Museum. We did that stop in true camper van style, spending zero dollars and still enjoying the stop.
