By Bonnie Gross, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, April 24, 2015 – Jonathan Dickinson State Park is such a big, varied park with so many natural wonders nearby that you could spend days there and not run out of things to do.

Now, it’s easier than ever to do that. Even if you’re not a camper, you now can stay overnight in the park, thanks to the re-opening of its cabins.

Ten new cabins began accepting reservations in Jonathan Dickinson in 2012. With reasonable prices — $95 a night for up to four six people in winter; $80 a night off-season – and full kitchens, these cabins can make an economical getaway for a couple or small family.

It’s a stretch to call them cabins, though.  They are actually new, miniature trailers/modular homes. The smallest have less than 300 square feet of space.  They lack that rustic cabin ambiance, but they do have complete kitchens; small bathrooms with tubs, plus heat and air conditioning.  There’s a full-size refrigerator, a small stove and oven and enough pots, pans and dishes to do all your cooking if you so choose.
