State wants to add camping, RV sites at more state parks in Florida, including Honeymoon Island
Visitors to Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin love picking up shells along the beach, catching fish from the gulf, hiking through the slash pines and spotting the birds soaring overhead. But when the sun goes down, everyone has to leave.
Now the state wants to change that. The Department of Environmental Protection has targeted Honeymoon Island as one of the first of 56 parks where state officials want to add new overnight camping sites — including space for recreational vehicles. Honeymoon Island could get up to 45 campsites on 17.5 acres east of the southern beach parking lot, under the DEP's plan.
