4748no hammocks in Collier Seminole State Park
- Feb 27, 2004Just thought you all might find it interesting that on last weeks
paddle trip in Florida we were told no hammocking in Collier Seminole
State Park, but later in the trip while in Ocala National Forest we
were told that it is discouraged but allowed. While in Collier
Seminole State Park I tried to teach the ranger about 'tree hugger'
straps but it was like talking to a wall....as hammockers we should
try to educate as many folk as possible but I'm thinking that the
mindless autocratic government juggernaut will be hard to influence.
So I am wondering if this is a common mindest/law/rule amonst all the
nation's state parks?
Maybe it would be nice to have a list here of places where anti-
hammocking rules apply?
Also, a note to Ed Speer....have you considered contacting the ATC
about placing 'hammocking posts' near shelters...would make a good
Eagle Scout project.
