    I received an e-mail today that most of Fl. campgrounds are now open for camping, there are seven still closed due to debris etc.

    Got the same email. Have had reservations at Hillsborough River fro the week after Christmas and have been concerned over the condition of the campground there. Glad to see they are up and running but wonder how much of the shade trees were taken out.

    Had my preferred site reserved at Cape san Blas (St. Joe state park) for this week, starting tomorrow. Reserved 11 months ago to the day - packed and ready to go. Closed today expecting a storm surge from Nate. Packed and ready to go - looking for other options. Looks like north or west from us are our only dry options.

    There are several that are open. I am sure there are more just not right along the coast. I hope you get it worked out as not being able to camp after the preparations are made is terrible...These are closed, I hope thiss helps
