We made it to Cary State Forest and inquired about camping. They have three small camping areas, and a washroom and shower building. It had rained a lot, and so two of the camping areas were too wet for my liking. The third had a very narrow entrance road, but I walked it and figured Sherman could manage it. So we went and talked to the ranger station where you were supposed to get a permit. They said it was no problem, and camping was $5. Now, figure that the day use fee is $2 per person and that includes parking and use of the trails and facilities. So camping overnight is only $1 more. We like Florida State Forests!

And, we are the only ones here. We have the entire campground to ourselves! And it`s now almost 10pm and we have the main door open, with only the screen door closed and are sitting in t-shirts. Temperature inside Sherman is 75F (24C).
