The cooling/heating unit in the tent is intended to add a bit of relief from typical Florida weather. On average, you can expect that the unit will offer a 5-15 degree difference from the exterior temperature.
During the heat of the afternoons, the A/C has little impact on the interior temperature. In the evenings, the cooling ability can be as much as 20 degrees cooler. This difference is significant, but the system is not equivalent to central A/C.
All overnight guests MUST be registered with the State Park BEFORE sundown. Park gates close and lock at sundown, and only fully registered overnight campers are given the gate code. If for ANY reason, you might arrive to the park after sundown, you MUST call the Ranger Station BEFORE sundown on the day of your scheduled check-in to complete your registration over the phone. If you do not complete registration in advance, and you arrive after sundown, you will be locked out of the park, and not allowed access to your campsite until the following morning.
Upon arriving at Colt Creek State Park, you must stop at the Ranger Station. Please inform the Ranger that you are registered to stay in a Cypress Tent. The Ranger will assist you in completing your registration as an overnight guest, and provide instructions on getting to your campsite.
We are located in the Family Campground inside Colt Creek State Park.
