Time to go visit your Mother

Joan and I spent two lovely days at Trimble Park back in January. It’s one of our favorite camping spots in Central Florida. It was about two months before so many things–including parks and outdoor venues of many kinds–began to close down because of… Continue Reading “Time to go visit your Mother”

Just As Beautiful As Ever

I did, indeed, make it back to Trimble Park near Mt Dora, Florida this week. I had a reservation for this last Monday and Tuesday. I arrived just at the 2 PM check-in time and had camp set up within an hour or so.… Continue Reading “Just As Beautiful As Ever”

Returning to Trimble Park

I made a camping reservation today to get back to one of my favorite spots to camp in all of Florida. I’m referring to Trimble Park, right were Orange and Lake counties meet. I’ve camped there three times and am delighted to be heading… Continue Reading “Returning to Trimble Park”

Another Triumphant Trimble Trip!

I just can’t get enough of Trimble Park. As you may remember, it’s a very nice park right where Orange and Lake counties meet. Although it’s actually in the very small Orange county town of Tangerine, that tiny hamlet does not deliver mail, so… Continue Reading “Another Triumphant Trimble Trip!”

Bulldog’s Christmas Wish Is a Return to Trimble Park

Triple Trimble Tuesday!

Well, it is Tuesday. And I do want to send along one more photo that features the beauty of Orange County’s Trimble Park. Okay, maybe two. Good shot of the meeting of Lake and Sky first. And then another sunset pic. I like the… Continue Reading “Triple Trimble Tuesday!”

Another Shot or Two from Trimble Park.

There must be thirty or forty docks at the park. No, that’s not an exaggeration! A view of a dock or two. This huge lake is Lake Griffin. Call Orange County Parks and Rec if you’d like to book or need info such as… Continue Reading “Another Shot or Two from Trimble Park.”

Trimble Park, Orange County’s Best-Kept Secret

If you like to do outdoor stuff, let me recommend you overnight at Trimble Park in Tangerine. (That’s the tiny town after Zellwood but before Mt. Dora!) I just wrapped up a one-dayer stay at Trimble Park and I am one happy camper! I… Continue Reading “Trimble Park, Orange County’s Best-Kept Secret”
