We left Manatee State Park and made our way a short distance north to Campers Holiday Park in Brookville. This is a nice Passport America Park where the fees are 17.50 per night and we settled in on a nice paved 50 amp site with full hook ups. We had planned to stay two nights but added two more since a cold snap was heading into Florida and we wanted to avoid any potential freezing temperatures.
The first day we simply walked around the park. It was windy and pretty chilly but not so bad we couldn’t get out and stretch our legs. The park has a nice little lake adjacent to it with a dock. It made for some peaceful gandering across the pond. A couple of Sandhill Cranes were feeding along its edge. We have now gone far enough north past Tampa that the vegetation appears more winter like even though there is an occasional palm tree.
