Serene

We stayed at this location for 13 days. The bathroom was clean, there was a fire ban in place, but we had portable grills so utilized those. It is supposed to be alcohol free however on our 10th or 11th night there, there was a large group that arrived and were very loud and they were all drunk.…

Standard campsite

The people working were great. Had to come in late and they were still available late Saturday night. Standard hookups. No pool for the kids. Water hookup was pretty yellow. Had to run for a while to get cleanish water.

Left early

Like other reviews mention, the pot holes entering the campgrounds are bad. But that’s by far not the worst part about it. For starters, there are people “camping” who clearly live there. I’m talkin’ backwoods hoarder hang out, party of five. Pretty sure one of the neighbors we met was on meth but…

Relaxing Camping w/ Animals

Very nice state park here. The electric camping sites have water hook ups. I don’t have a camper so we just set up tents and luckily the only spot available was a good one. It’s mid June and it’s HOT! Some sites are spacious and private and others you can see more of your neighbors. We had deer…

Great Jump Off Point

I will return to this campground because the Pinellas Bike Trail runs right in front and I can bike into St. Pete. I also like the kayak launch site on property. The bathrooms were very clean and daily trash pick up.

The only down side was the level of privacy but we ended up meeting some great…

Private Paradise

My favorite spot to camp because the spots are secluded from one another with trees and brush. This campground is well maintained.

The park is clean a quiet.

Nothing but good things to say about the staff and park. Close to the beach and is within walking distance to some really nice restaurants. The Ice Cream shop across the street is amazing. Bathhouses are air-conditioned and clean so is the laundry room also has a coin machine. We were able to pull…

Just Exploring

Spent 7 days it was a great camping trip. Clean. There weren't that many people due to covid issue. Weather couldn't have been any better.

Despierta temprano

Es un lugar hermoso y muchos lo saben, siempre está lleno. Mi consejo es que despiertes temprano porque quien llega primero reserva. Este sitio tiene todo para que no te vayas, puedes pescar, pasear en kayak, bote, bici, hacer senderismo, bañarse en la playa y área de juego para los niños. Es…

For being free it was amazing

First you have to make an account on their website and make a reservation for the night. You’ll get an email that says what the gate code is and which lock to put the code into. The place is beautiful, picnic tables, fire pits, non-potable water and bathrooms. Although, the bathrooms are not pretty…

Perfect stop close to beaches.

This will be a yearly stop for us. There’s lot of shade in most of the park, a great pool, two hot tubs and within 3 miles of a beach. Madeira Beach is easy to get to and the campground is right on a Bay Area so there’s kayaking, fishing, a boat dock.. pretty much everything you could ask for.

Great water access, bugs can be a problem

We spent two nights at E G Simmons County Park in Ruskin, Florida. It is first come, first served, no reservations but a quick call will let you know if they have sites available. Many sites are along the water with a small access point in the campsite. The saltwater access is to an exceptionally…
