The large RV camping area at Florida Caverns State Park is currently closed for renovation, but will reopen with new features on July 15, according to the Jackson County Floridian.
When it’s completed, RVers will no longer have to route their sewage into holding tanks and get rid of it at a dump station in the park.
Instead, they can hook into the new sewer system currently under construction.
The road leading into the RV area and the park’s premier swimming area, Blue Hole, is being repaved as well.
The Blue Hole swimming area fell on hard times a few seasons ago, with drought stagnating the water and, on the drought’s heels, floods that put the road leading into it underwater.
A brief closure cleared the problem up, however, and the water is once again beautiful and ready for swimmers.
Each of the 32 RV sites has both 30- and 50-amp electrical service, a fire ring, picnic table and sewer hook-up.
It costs $22.50 to rent a space for RV or tent camping in the area. Florida senior citizens and the disabled get a 50% discount on fees.
