Gator Hole

This section of the FT is quite a nice walk, and I assume that most individuals looking at a site on the trail, are looking at Gator Hole. As far as backcountry campsites go, you really can't ask for much better than Gator Hole especially as a beginner, or a more leisurely camping group. It is only about 1.5 miles from the trailhead, so you dont need to go far, there is plenty of room for tents, and there is a provided fire ring with two picnic tables(even if one of the legs is held up by a log). The one thing that this ground is missing that could do it much better is a water pump, but I understand that you can install pumps everywhere. You can collect your water a couple hundred feet to the north, and If you're not into filtering your water from the Florida swamp, make sure to pack in some extra. Every time I visit Gator Hole, I am always packing out other people's trash, so please pack it out.
