If you enjoy camping and want to meet other families who enjoy camping and having fun, come join us as we “Camp Florida Parks” and bring something special to the table….
  
                  




Rainbow Springs State Park By Laurie Taylor September 2021



RAINBOW SPRINGS STATE PARK

Rainbow Springs has served as an important natural resource for humans and animals for many years.
At one time, mastodon and mammoth fossils were found in the Rainbow River, along with relics of the American Indians who used the river for transportation and fishing.

A "Big Thank You" to Pat and George for hosting our 9/11 campout as well as the kickoff to our camping season.
During Friday night’s meet and greet we welcomed new members and guests Linda and Trent, Mike and Sam, Sonny and Jackie along with Shirley’s friend Phyllis and Maria’s sister Diane and her husband Tim.
We enjoyed several types of homemade cookies, cupcakes and other yummy desserts.

Saturday several of us made our yearly float on tubes down the Rainbow River ending with lunch at Swampy’s.
We were grateful for the cloud cover as it was not so brutely hot. A few explored the park by bike and some by renting boats and cruising the river.

Saturday night's potluck was 9/11 themed with Firehouse (NYFD) Chili, Manhattan Style Clam Chowder, NY style cheese cake, Nathans Hotdogs and many other dishes. Thank you to everyone for your delicious contributions.  
After dinner we went around one by one remembering where we were 20 years ago on 9/11 and how it affected us and or our jobs. Finding out some of our members had family in the Twin Towers and
remembering the hero’s on that fateful day especially the ones on Untied Flight 93 that was brought down by its passengers in Somerset County, PA.

Sunday some stayed at camp and played Mah-jongg and a few of us took Kayaks up to the head spring and enjoyed a picnic lunch on the river.  
Jeff and Jordon (Robert & Sharon’s son and daughter-in-law) joined us for the day.  Sharon and Jeff enjoyed some snorkeling during our lunch stop.

Movie night brought laughter, popcorn, baked goods and the Margarita machine.  Nothing like sitting under the stars watching a good movie.
Thank you Robert and Sharon for always hosting our Sunday Movie Night.

Hope to see everyone at Top Sail Hill State Park in Oct.

Safe Travels!

Why Join A Club?

There is no better feeling when you pull into a campground and you know most of the people there.
I started camping with my family 15 years ago and every campground we went to, no matter how many people were at the campground we always felt alone.   By the time you met other campers it was time to pack up and go home. But now since we joined the "Florida Potluck Campers" its like a BIG family reunion every trip. You pull into the campground and they know your coming and what site you will be staying on. If you need help they are there, having issues with your camper... most likely someone there can fix it and so on...... This is the only way to camp!! So come on out and see for yourself what we are all about and how much fun camping is when you have friends everywhere you go. 

In Memory Of Steve Harris  6/13/2012

 
Steve shared his love and wisdom of camping with each one of his fellow campers. Upon arriving at each campout, we were greeted with a warm hello and an encouraging word. Steve cared about each family and would always check on each camper until the last family arrived safely at their site. He would make his way throughout the weekend to visit and share his knowledge of camping, the park we were camping at and places of interest in the area. As we continue to share the memory and our love to camp, we have become the Florida Pot Luck Campers.
