Harry and the Natives, a funky, fun spot for lunch. Jackie and Beth shared storage ideas.
Pleasure-Way store. Noah tried it and it worked, but at age twenty he opted to sleep in his own little tent rather than be in the van with mom and dad. The heavy rains didn't materialize, but if they had he would have been happy to move inside.
Donated by friends of the park, this battery powered all-terrain chair is available in the visitor's center to allow folks with disabilities to get out on the park trails. There is no charge to use the chair, but you might want to call ahead to insure availability.
There are a few campsites next to these stables in the center of the park. If the regular campgrounds are full, you might want to ask if there are sites available here.

New signs were being installed as we explored the park. Sharing the road with gopher tortoises seems like a fine idea.

John Prince Park Campground in Palm Beach as an alternative to Jonathan-Dickinson. Contained within a large and busy park, the campground has a gated entrance, but the park does not. We asked permission to drive around to check out the sites, but weren't allowed to drive. They did let us walk in and see some of the sites near the entrance. Although it was on a small lake, we were turned off by the litter on the ground and the proximity of sites. Other parts of the 300 site campground may be different.
After not seeing any other small rigs during our first nine days here, we met a couple with a Roadtrek and another Pleasure-Way moved into our loop the day before we left.
