Let's start a discussion about kayak camping.
For you, is it more about paddling or more about camping? Do you want full restroom facilities and access to fresh water or is rustic OK for an overnight? Different people have different camping and paddling preferences.
Let's discuss the following three models:
1. Easy Camping - Full restroom facilities (includes shower), electricity access, potable water access, easy paddling opportunities. Camping gear/food is car transported. Paddle from campsite. Example: Ft. DeSoto.
2. Intermediate Camping - Restroom facilities (may or may not include shower), may or may not have electricity access, potable water access, intermediate paddling opportunities. Camping gear/food is kayak transported. Paddle to campsite. Example: Little Manatee River Conservation area and Park (Load at put in, paddle river to campsite, paddle back to put in.)
3. Advanced Camping - Limited or no restroom facilities, no electricity access, no potable water access - drinking and washing water must be carried, intermediate to advanced paddling opportunities. Camping gear/food and water is kayak transported. Paddle to campsite. Example: Anclote Key,Ten Thousand Islands to Dome houses.
