Is Cayo Costa State Park the Best Place to Go Camping?

Cayo Costa State Park has made Travel and Leisure’s list of the best places to go camping.

Topping the list for Florida, this park, west of Cape Coral and just north of North Captiva Island, is accessible only by boat, ferry, or helicopter.

“This barrier island is a true escape, a car-less outpost accessible only by boat with more than nine miles of pristine beach,” writes T&L. “Spend your days kayaking along the coast, biking inland trails, or scanning for manatees and dolphins, then wave the day trippers goodbye and crash in one of 30 primitive campsites where the rhythm of the surf will lull you to sleep.”
