Be aware of the amps at the site you choose. Get a 50 amp site if you need 30 or you won’t have enough to run AC. Very easy to bike out to Casey Key. Park and facilities very clean. Full review by Kookoo12

Some parts are wheelchair friendly, but many of the trails are very soft sand and I think they would be difficult to maneuver in a manual wheel chair. The area around the visitor center does have paved paths and some handicapped reserved parking. I know that the back trails are difficult to maneuver on my mountain bike. It is a very nice park so hope that you can arrange a visit. Take binoculars and look for for birds.

There is a small beach at the state park. To get to Nokomis beach the above directions are correct. The day we were at Nokomis we had wonderful small shelling, however my friend went and it was so so. Take advantage of your location and go to Siesta Key beach, earlier the better for parking (9am) for beautiful white sugar sand and Venice Beach or Manasto for shark teeth searching.
