Florida Park Service Celebrates Renovated
Collier-Seminole State Park Campground
provides numerous opportunities for RV and tent campers~
Fla. - The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of a renovated
campground in Collier-Seminole State Park. The refurbished campground boasts 105
spacious sites for RVs and tents, and maintains a 75-percent occupancy rate in the busy winter season.
“I am proud of the
wonderful amenities this campground offers our visitors,” said Chuck Hatcher, assistant director of the Florida Park Service. “This important project will enhance the visitor experience and provide an economic benefit to the local community.”
Collier-Seminole State Park, comprised of 7,271 acres, is a popular hot spot for canoeing, fishing
and hiking. To make this resource easily accessible to all Florida residents and visitors, the Florida Park Service invested over $1.7 million to improve the park's campground.
These renovations include:
- New waterlines and electricity at 86 campsites;
- Construction of a new ADA accessible restroom facility;
- Repaving the campsite entrance road; and
- The addition of gravel pads to each campsite.
The campground construction began
in April 2015, and the campground is now open and ready for exploration. For more information about Collier-Seminole State Park and its campground, visit the park's webpage.
