Florida to improve campsites at Myakka River State Park

SARASOTA, Fla. — Despite being one of Florida’s largest and most popular state parks, Myakka River State Park’s 1960s-era campgrounds are far behind the times with narrow and densely packed sites with no buffer between them, reports the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

The newspaper says a new $1.2 million project, paid for by the state Department of Environmental Protection, should be completed by Jan. 1 and will increase the total campsites from 76 to 92. There are also five existing log cabins for rent.
