Primitive Camping at Lake George State Forest in Florida

There's something about leaving everything behind to enjoy nature and the things we take for granted. Lake George State Forest was a great place to escape. 

Our trip was during Florida's winter month in January, and the temperatures dropped to 30 degrees at night. It quickly warmed up as the sun rose in the early morning, and the cool air was perfect for our hiking trips. We set up at River Road Campground, a primitive area with no electricity or water. Both the kids have been camping this way since they were born. There was hiking, horseback riding, picnic areas, wildlife, and plenty of nature to photograph.
