A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Mark Nelson

Spring has sprung! Beautiful balmy weather ushers in the growing season each year here at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, as the cypress trees show off their soft new verdant needles, and the baby sandhill cranes trot expectantly behind their parents. Park visitors also wait expectantly for the migration of warblers and other birds that are only seen at this time of year, for cool, dry hiking through the pine forests, and for the spring wildflowers that push up through the leaf litter. The crowds in the camping areas have thinned out a little, and if you can squeeze in a springtime visit, then Jonathan Dickinson can be your base for exploration of "...the Real Florida!"

Don't forget to check out what's going on at the Kimbell Center and see the amazing award winners for the 2014 Friends of Jonathan Dickinson State Park Photo Contest.
