  • This place is so far from light pollution! So dark and amazing. Definitely recommend visiting here for anyone who likes stargazing. There are plenty of animals out and about as well. A small family of bunnies lives right next to the astronomy pad and are absolutely adorable!
  • Seriously one of my favorite places in this state to camp!! They take their night skies very seriously, and do everything they can to preserve it, including enforcing a red light only policy at certain sites!
  • Lots of crocks! Such a weird landscape, flat as far as the eye could see. I thought it was supposed to be a great place for star gazing but it wasn't very special. Not that dark. It was clear out too.
  • Great view of the stars at night the wild life was EVERYWHERE AROUND YOU!! Looking over the grass fields and just waiting a few minutes the deer just seem to pop out of nowhere. Bobcat's where playing hide and seek with us at dusk see them for a few seconds and puff they're gone and puff twenty feet away they pop up to pounce on Thier next chance at dinner. Get away from the amusement parks and see the REAL Florida!
  • This is my happy place! We love coming here and detoxing from life. I like to let my dslr loose and capture all this outdoors beauty. #quilesphoto
