2 Comments on “Myakka River State Park”

  1. Steve Kight says:

    Went to Myakka River State Park for the air boat ride. Loved it. The skipper was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants we saw.
    The campgrounds looked very nice and I hope to camp there some day soon. It’s worth the trip if you are in the area.

  2. The campsite was so big you could get 2 rv’s side by side in it. The only draw back was the concession stand was 3 miles away. Bring ice and firewood.
