Collier-Seminole  State Park Recap By Laurie & Marlice October 2019


A Big Thank You to Debra and Randy for hosting our October campout.


This Collier-Seminole State Park was new to all of us; south of Naples, Florida generally in the Big Cypress Swamp.  The campground was well maintained but the sites were small and close together.  One of the two bathrooms was closed due to electrical issues; so it was something of a hike to go to the other bath house.  There were no water sports in the park: no spring, lake, river or swimming pool.  Just campsites.  Before entering the Park, there were many road signs warning of panther traffic around the area.  I was excited to perhaps see a panther wandering around our camp; especially when I had to walk my dog in the dark!  We also were warned about bears; but none of us saw a bear either.  The only wildlife that we saw were the big, aggressive mosquitoes that came for us at dusk.  Long sleeved shirts and pants with Deet spray was the only way to survive.  Debbie and Randy Lewis hosted this campout and all discomforts are forgotten when we all get together and share our stories with each other.
Friday’s meet and greet welcomed visitors Jeff and Comet along with Maria and Chris and of course yummy desserts. Much too warm for a fire so we enjoyed the breeze from a few fans.  Robert and Sharon's daughter, Christina came over on Friday p.m. bringing her tiny baby girl Makenzie Lynn, 3 1/2 months old!  She didn't stay outdoors for long because of the mosquitoes, but she is definitely a doll baby.
Saturday George & Pat went canoeing from the park, some of us went on an Airboat ride with Wootens and a few went to Everglade City for a boat tour. Robert, Sharon, Bruce and Laurie found a great biking/walking trail about a half hour from the park, wishing we had more time to ride as we only covered a small portion of the trail.
 The day was topped off by the usual potluck dinner; always fun and delicious from the baked ham, sweet potato casserole, corn casserole, roasted potatoes, sauteed cabbage and mushrooms,  roast chicken, vegetable panzanella, Caesar salad, and a whole array of desserts.
Sharon left camp after midnight to drive up to Orlando where she was catching a plane to Spain where she was to meet up with several other girlfriends and the four of them were going to run all around Spain.  I don't know what their itinerary took in, but I hope they had good running shoes.
Sunday brought another treat:  we all went to a music festival at nearby Goodland and had a nice lunch/dinner before returning back to camp.  We gathered at Robert's campsite for the "Sunday Night Movie"  popcorn and margaritas!  Then said our goodbyes as we all were leaving the following morning, looking forward to our next campout at Lake Kissimmee. 
Hope to see you all again soon!

Why Join A Club?

There is no better feeling when you pull into a campground and you know most of the people there.
I started camping with my family 15 years ago and every campground we went to, no matter how many people were at the campground we always felt alone.   By the time you met other campers it was time to pack up and go home. But now since we joined the "Florida Potluck Campers" its like a BIG family reunion every trip. You pull into the campground and they know your coming and what site you will be staying on. If you need help they are there, having issues with your camper... most likely someone there can fix it and so on...... This is the only way to camp!! So come on out and see for yourself what we are all about and how much fun camping is when you have friends everywhere you go. 

In Memory Of Steve Harris  6/13/2012

 
Steve shared his love and wisdom of camping with each one of his fellow campers. Upon arriving at each campout, we were greeted with a warm hello and an encouraging word. Steve cared about each family and would always check on each camper until the last family arrived safely at their site. He would make his way throughout the weekend to visit and share his knowledge of camping, the park we were camping at and places of interest in the area. As we continue to share the memory and our love to camp, we have become the Florida Pot Luck Campers.
