Hmm...not sure. I suppose the Florida Keys, but they get so many tourists that it's not really isolated, same goes for the Everglades. That's the thing about Florida, no place is really isolated, there are tourists everywhere. But I don't think that's a bad thing, I like it!

On a very crude Google Earth search, the most uninhabited part of florida seems to be Liberty and Franklin counties between Carrabelle, Apalachicola, Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka Hosford and Crawfordville. Is that true?

That may be why the Green Bank National Observatory was located there - far far away from any lights that would interfere with stargazing.

Well I know that some of those places like Carrabelle are very small, so is Dog Island which is to the south of it. Port St.Joe is also in the panhandle and a pretty small town too. Pretty much most places around the pan handle part of the state tend to be smaller and less populated.

The most isolated populated place in Western Washington is probably Brooklyn. It used to be Lester, but that is now a ghost town as they bought out the remaining residents over a decade ago. Lester was/is in the upper Green River valley, but was only accessible from Eastern Washington via Stampede Pass. Brooklyn is an isolated logging/farm community located in the middle of hundreds of square miles of commercial and state forest land. It is accessed via the North River Rd. off US-101 between Aberdeen and Raymond or via a windy forest arterial to Oakville towards the east side of the coast hills.

East of the Cascades as mentioned before is Stehekin, only accessible via the 50 mile long ferry ride down Lake Chelan. Ferry County is also extremely isolated. To access Republic the county seat requires either taking a ferry, traversing Washington's highest highway mountain pass crossing, entering in from Canada, or crossing a shorter mountain pass and desolate drive west from the Okanogan Valley.

The extreme SE corner is also very isolated. It may look close to Lewiston-Clarkston on a map, but take a closer look at the those windy roads and canyons that separate the southern part of Asotin County from Clarkston.
