Management & Protection
Florida State Parks are managed as natural systems. All plant and animal life is protected in state parks. Hunting, livestock grazing and timber removal are not permitted. Do not remove, deface, mutilate or molest any natural
resources. For your safety, do not feed any animals. Intoxicants and firearms are prohibited.
Pets are not allowed in camping areas, on bathing beaches, in concession areas and may be restricted
in other designated areas of the park. Where pets are allowed, they must be kept on a six-foot,
