If you are near the midlands and you kayak or canoe, you need to check out Goodale State Park. It's just east of Camden. No camping, but they have a canoe trail that goes 1.5 miles back through cypress woods in a 140 acre Mill pond (return is same route). Pond was built during the Civil war. I forgot my camera, but it was covered in lily pads that were all bloomed out. It was a great little paddle. Entrance is free and they rent canoes and kayaks. Would be a great little family paddle. I probably spent 3-4 hrs on it, just took it slow. I'm told there are a few gators, but I didn't see any. Surprising thing was that I didn't use any repellant and only got bit/stung once and I don't even think that was sqeeter. I might get back out there in about 3 weeks and if I do, I'll take some pics.
