    Welcome to Point Washington, a charming campground nestled in the heart of Florida's beautiful wilderness. This spot is perfect for those who appreciate a mix of rustic charm and natural beauty. Located near the scenic 30A area, it's a short drive to the beaches, making it an ideal base for both forest and beach lovers.

    Point Washington offers a peaceful retreat with a variety of camping options, including tent and RV sites. The campground is divided into two main areas, each with its own unique appeal. Campground 1 is known for its quiet atmosphere and spacious sites, where you can park right at your spot. It's a bit more secluded, offering a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle. On the other hand, Campground 2 boasts stunning lake views and easy access to the water, perfect for those who enjoy a scenic backdrop and a gentle breeze.

    One of the standout features here is the access to Eastern Lake. Whether you're into kayaking, canoeing, or just enjoying the view, the lake provides a serene setting for your outdoor adventures. The campground also has a small dock, making it easy to launch your watercraft.

    For those who love to explore, Point Washington has several well-maintained trails. The Eastern Lake bike/hike trail offers loops of varying lengths, from 3.5 to 10 miles, catering to both casual walkers and avid hikers. The trails are part of the Florida Forest Service's Trailwalker Hiking Program, so you know they're top-notch.

    While the amenities are basic—think pit toilets and picnic tables—the natural beauty and tranquility more than make up for it. Fires are allowed, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars. Just remember to bring your own water and be prepared for the rugged forest roads, especially if it’s been raining.

    Overall, Point Washington is a gem for those looking to disconnect and immerse themselves in nature. Whether you're here for the lake, the trails, or just the peace and quiet, you're in for a treat.

            Cotton Landing, on Kennedy Creek, is a favorite of fishermen and canoeists alike. Its lazy, winding current has breathtaking views into the heart of a cypress swamp. From Cotton Landing, it's a four-mile trip to the Apalachicola River. Paddlers can also work their way upstream for several miles.
