We were lucky to get a last-minute reservation. The site (#45) was spacious, level, and clean. Easy to back a van into, but I'm not sure about a larger RV or a trailer. We could see the neighbors on either side, but the vegetation helps to provide some privacy. The bathrooms were clean, and the showers looked decent (we didn't use them). There's a wide lawn and path separating the site from the water, and the view of the water was limited, but there was a nice breeze. Surprisingly, we saw no mosquitoes. Be careful of the raccoons, though. They're pretty fearless and active in the daytime. We came back from biking and found one checking out our water hose. At night I saw some rats in the bushes, but they stayed away from us. Just make sure your food is inaccessible. Will definitely go back.
This was our first time camping here. It's a beautiful park with a lovely shaded campground and lots of oak trees. The quality of the individual sites varies quite a bit, but all of them are pretty decent. But there's one big problem--as you can see from the photo, there's a wastewater treatment plant between the loops right in the middle of the campground! The plant's motors/generators are very noisy and run 24 hours a day (watch the video). It's especially loud if you're camping in sites 82 - 100. We had to use earplugs to sleep at night. If you want to enjoy some peace and quiet, reserve a site on one of the other loops. Otherwise, we had no complaints. The staff was friendly and there are lots of hiking and kayaking opportunities.
There are tolls to get to Fort De Soto Campground, but worth it.
I camped here for 1 night, and loved it so much. I hope to stay at least 2 nights next time.
Easy check in and out. Such a beautiful, waterfront campsite. Very clean campground, campsite, & bathhouse. The bathhouse was walking distance to my campsite.
I explored North Beach & took a ferry to Egmont Key during my stay. A must do for both places.
I explored the area in mid February. It was warm and in the high 70s, but two 1 hour storms rolled through during the night. No big deal for me though. I want to go back in a couple months for warmer and not as breezy weather to enjoy North Beach a bit more.
We came in the beginning of February (8-11th) which seems to be a popular time due to the rarity of available spaces, but we were able to reserve online right after Christmas and got a block for three nights. Good time of year to come - not yet too humid, no bugs at all, warm days. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was in our area. No parties going on or crazy loud families which seem to be our camping destiny of late (people don’t seem to know how to behave when they are camping). Seemed to be a more adult crowd, retirees, couples and friends who enjoy being outside. If you like to fish, kayak, or just hang out on the beach, this is a perfect place to relax. Our site was spacious, deep, and lots of privacy as there was a good amount of foliage between us and the neighbors. One warning, however, we noticed poison ivy in the wooded areas, just beware if you have kids or are susceptible yourself. Gave it four stars instead of five due to that and the outdated bathrooms. They suffice, but have a bad layout. The showers are okay, but there is no private changing area. You step out of the shower into a common changing area. Not much space to put your stuff in the shower. They are cleaned often, but there is no humidity control so it’s always damp and slippery in there. There are two washers and dryers at each bathroom location, $1.75 each and do a good job. If you need quarters, go to the camp store as there are no change machines near the laundry areas. Overall a nice place, easy to get to, not too far from other stuff, great beaches.
This is an excellent place to camp because it is secluded with large private campsites surrounding a clear swimming hole. It is a short drive from the Chaz, and affordable. The hosts were extra friendly. Downside is no pets or alcohol, and weird gloomy roar of airboats or some other loud engine after dark nearby. We also camped next to someone who was blasting country music and speaking loudly well past midnight, but that is a risk of campground camping, bring earplugs.
This is a beautiful park close to the Tampa area. The campsites are separated into 2 areas. Most are small and open. On our visit, there were NO friendly people here. Some good hikes in the park. There are a few places to launch kayaks and I went from campground up to rapids and back down. Good paddle, lots of birds. Roads are paved in park and its a big circle so great for bike riding. There are large day use areas and a beautiful huge pool. Concessions were closed not sure if seasonal or covid? There is a neat suspension bridge and class 2 rapids along hike. Also a CCC museum (closed). Don't arrive before check in time because you have to wait in day use area until "it's time" for you to check in. Great park but not a great vibe.
If you want a very clean park, lots to do like kayaking, sandy beaches, short island excursions with picturesque views, then this is the place! It’s very hard to get a reservation for a reason. It’s more expensive for a reason. Just wat h out for the raccoons as they will steal the food out of your hands if you let them, they are not scared of anything.
Tent camped at a site in loop one. Weather was nice, though we were warned it can get a bit muddy when it rains. Crowds were a bit higher on the trails during Saturday afternoon but Sunday morning was much more quiet and we saw lots of wildlife.
