The Best Place In Florida To Catch The Infinite Magic Of The Milky Way Is Right Here
Unfortunately, light pollution has definitely become more of a thing in Florida, especially if you live in a heavily populated city. However, we have a place that gets dark at night, allowing you to see as much of the night sky as you could hope for. Not only can you camp for the a few days, enjoying the peace and solitude in nature, but this park in Florida also happens to be one of the best places to snag a glimpse of the Milky Way, too.
Hours of Operation: 8 a.m. to sundown, 365 days per year, unless camping.
