Lake Manatee State Park

Nice, clean and yes, quiet.

We loved this place. We were in Site #9 right next to the trail/path down to the lake. Some reviews mentioned the drag strip miles away, and while you can hear them in the distance him you really try), they are so far away you don’t really notice them. The park was clean, easy to get into and the hosts were awesome. Even enough trees to hide your neighbors. We camped at Lake Manatee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Over the past 35 years of my adult life, I have gained a very diverse portfolio of adventures from which I have been blessed to be a participant. This wealth of experience and knowledge has defined my character, my morals and values and my healthy respect for people and the great outdoors. It is a true definition of an Outdoorsman!

All Trails Lead to Riches!

All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
