REGION 5 PAYNES PRAIRIE STATE PARK R&R RALLY MICANOPY, FL
By Betty & Jim at Weite
Join us Tuesday November 3, 4 & 5th to Friday November 6, 2020 for three nights of camping as we enjoy the great birding and antiques in this area. This is a beautiful area of old Florida with lots to do including bird watching, hiking, biking and antiquing in Micanopy and surrounding area. Paynes Prairie State Park is located on US 441 between Ocala and Gainesville, Florida. Our Rally will begin with appetizers / potluck Tuesday night at the host site #12, followed by a evening campfire and social. Weather permitting we will have campfires and a social each night as well as a BBQ compliments of Sunshine State RVs & a pizza night. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday participants can take a leisurely Ranger led walk in the park, ride bikes or visit nearby Micanopy, visit the nearby points of interest such as the Marjorie Rawlings Historic Homestead at Cross Creek, the Florida Natural History Museum in Gainesville and the University of Florida Bat House. Participants should make their own camping reservations for Paynes Prairie State Park by visiting www.ReserveAmerica.com or calling (800) 3263521. Early reservations are suggested, as the Florida campgrounds fill many months before the rally. Your Rally Leaders have reserved sites 12 & 10.
A nominal rally fee will be collected. Please contact us via email and give your name, contact information and site number, just in case there is a change of plans. We will gather around the campfire in the evenings and start our Rally Tuesday with appetizers / potluck on Tuesday at 4-4:30.
