Johnny Molloy is the author of thirty hiking, camping, and paddling guidebooks including Hiking the Florida Trail: 1,100 Miles, 78 Days, Two Pairs of Boots, and One Heck of an Adventure and From the Swamp to the Keys: A Paddle through Florida History.
Molloy, the author of other books on camping and hiking, explores the complete coastline of Florida. This is a guide to 24 campgrounds, all on public lands. After a brief introduction, the book divides into four sections: west, north, central, and south Florida. For each section there is an outline map locating the camps and major towns and cities. For each campground there is a "Key Information" box giving address, cost, amenities, facilities, number of sites, and directions, followed by a description of the beach and coast and of the campground. There is also a brief section on "Human and Natural History," what to do, and what's nearby. For the Florida beach camper, this is a very handy guide, well organized with the essential information. Recommended for all public libraries.ÄGeorge M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, PA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
"One of the book's strong points is you will not arrive unannounced at a place which disappoints you.... Molloy's writing is no-nonsense, precise, and he covers a lot of ground, both figuratively and metaphorically. His subjects include 'what to do' and 'what's nearby.' Here we have an essential resource book for anyone who ventures out of doors with a tent and a hankering to go pitch it somewhere." - Outdoor Adventure Magazine "Gives readers nuts and bolts about camping in state and national parks where land meets the water from the Gulf Islands National Seashore near Pensacola to Bahia Honda State Park near Marathon." - Palm Beach Post "A fine new guidebook to help us find just the right spot for outdoor fun.... Packed with useful information for people who want to enjoy Florida's seashores." - Vero Beach Press-Journal "Beach and Coastal Camping in Florida is not just a listing of places to camp and how to get there. Molloy gives detailed descriptions of parks and recreation areas along the coasts of Florida with pictures, key information with directions and fees, descriptions of the beach areas, pertinent details about the campgrounds, the history of the area, what to do and what's nearby. In fact, if your idea of camping is a suite at the Hilton, you might even find yourself enticed into trying camping after reading some of these descriptions." - Tallahassee Democrat"
