Taste of Old Florida

12 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Palm City, FL
A small but unique piece of land that was given to a family in the 1920s by the Florida Railroad Company. It stayed in the family until we purchased it. It is unique because the surrounding area does not have much tree coverage. This is due to the ground underneath, which is a vein of grey marl. This is why the area is called the Allapattah (an Indian word for Alligator) Flats. We are hoping that our county stays the way it is so people will know what Old Florida really looks like. Minutes from I-95, but surrounded by the Allapattah Flats Wildlife Management Preserve. Located on Martin Hwy, which was recently designated as a Florida Scenic Hwy. Fifteen minutes to Stuart and thirty minutes to West Palm Beach, a world away from the hustle and bustle. We realize that people also love Florida for Disney and tropical paradises but if that is what you want than this may not be your kind of place.

The room has an open concept with a main area where there is a super comfy Queen side bed plus a Twin size sofa bed for an extra guess or kid.PLEASE READ before choosing La Bougainvillea as your place to stay: We have 3 super friendly dogs in the premises and they will be super happy to see you and say hi to you, this is a 5 acre property and the dogs are usually running around the whole area and most likely you will encounter them more than once, treats are always welcome for them and they will love you for that. Remember this property is located in the country side of Palm City and even when we have a very good pest control, sometimes you can have an encounter with different critters and animals as coyotes, raccoons, snakes, chickens, hawks, lizards, armadillos, possums among other things.Our property runs on well water and even when we have an excellent 4 stages filtration system, there is sometimes an odor and/or color associated with this specially in raining season. We assure you the water is good and safe for drinking, cooking, bathing, and washing as per mentioned before it runs through a multistage filtration and softening system.We have within the property our own business which is an exclusive and private classic car restoration shop and sometimes noise and other vehicles can be heard or seen. It is also a nice opportunity to see the restoration process and sometimes the final cool looking restored vehicles.Due that we are in the countryside, our internet is Satellite, so it is not as fast as in the city but yes we do have WiFi and you can stream basically anything with a little bit of patience.

The best camping near Jonathan Dickinson State Park guide

Overview

About

Nature lovers and history buffs, unite! No less than 13 natural habitats converge on 11,500 acres of preserved coastal lands. This park offers several ways to explore the area. You'll find boat tours, hiking trails, horse-pulled wagons, bikes, canoes, and kayaks.

Bring your own gear or rent a boat from a local outfitter. There is a guided, interpretive tour on the Loxahatchee Queen II. Along the way, you might see deer, herons, cranes, and even alligators. Habitats range from coastal sand dunes and sand pine scrub to cypress forests and mangrove swamps.

History buffs can see Trapper Nelson's homestead from the 1920s. The U.S. military runs the Jonathan Dickinson Missile Tracking Annex on the southern edge of the park. This tracking station was built in the 1960s during the Cold War. It still runs today. This wild and scenic river area truly has a bit of everything.

Campgrounds feature group sites, primitive areas, and hookups for RVs.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Jonathan Dickinson State Park is during the cooler months from November to April, when the Florida heat is at bay and the wildlife is most active. Summer months can be hot and humid, with a higher chance of rain and storms, possibly affecting some park activities.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and prepare for Florida's varying conditions, especially during hurricane season.
  • Ensure you're aware of the park's opening hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, to plan your visit accordingly.
  • Accessibility is a priority, with facilities designed to accommodate all visitors.
  • Stay informed about any park closures or area restrictions that may be in effect during your visit.
  • Remember to pack essentials like water, sunscreen, and insect repellent to enhance your park experience.
