Spent the week of thanksgiving in site 118 of Shady Pines loop. Nice site and a nice park. Beaches are beautiful, water was clear. Even though it was chilly we enjoyed the beach and even walked at night playing with the ghost crabs. The place was packed but the was not crowded. The site was tight with the length of our pup but plenty wide. Site 119 had a good 8ft buffer but site 117 was right next door, even had a 3-4ft gap in the plants. Bath house was close as all the sites have a path to the bath house. It was even a easy walk to the other bath house while they were cleaning ours. Bath houses were clean and have been updated some. The valves are backwards on some of the showers but they do have hot water. Washer and dryer are outside the bath house at $2.00 each. They only have the in-ground fire ring with the flip over grate. Wood is available at the ranger station for $6 a bundle, cash only. The cell signal is very spotty there, only had one bar most of the time and no signal the rest. They do have wifi at the playground and bait store. The playground area is also a good launch place to kayak out into the bay. Nothing is close by, it is a 30-45 min drive to get to a store. Piggly Wiggly and Dollar General Market in St Joe, Piggly Wiggly in Apalachicola. Ice is cheaper in St Joe also, Next to the dollar general $2 for 24lbs. Ask if you need anymore info. We had a good time and enjoyed it.
