    Post FLALMI>GULF>3/25-29>Hangin in the gulf?

    Need some info hangers, on hanging in the Gulf. We are wanting to take a trip to the gulf coast this spring break , the last week of March, to hammock camp. We are looking for someplace between Tampa Fl and Biloxi MI. There will be 5 of us and all hangers. We will have tents for backup as well. Just looking for some suggestions from locals or previous campers. We definetly want to be able to park and "car camp". We are fans of state parks and such but are open to just about anything with trees and a view of the gulf. Thanks in advance!

    We stayed at Fort De Soto park by Tampa last year.

    Only thing is the racoons are a bit prolific here (bring earplugs) but most of the sites are right on the water. You can rent kayaks and just putter around, nice beaches down the road, power and water.

    I believe they always keep a few spots open for a first come first serve type deal each day. It might be worth calling the park about or looking into.

    I read that, but didn't think about calling. it's worth a shot. my only problem will be 6 people without a place to say if an issue arrises! LOL! At least we will have our gear, all we need is a few trees and we are good! :-)

    Thanks!
