    I ASKED WHAT DAYS WERE FREE FOR FL STATE PARKS and DID NOT GET ANY ANSWER. IF THIS YEAR THERE ARE NO DAYS PLEASE SAY SO.

  2. What a great list to have! I’d like to add that if you’re planning to visit the Canaveral National Seashore on one of the free days between Nov-April the park opens up its backcountry camping during that time of year. You still have to pay for the camping site though. If you’re into primitive camping on the beach, this is an undeveloped and beautiful stretch of beach you should put on your list to visit!
