Stunning Campground Big rig friendly

Stayed in site 112 and had a great time. The campground was spectacular we even saw dolphins right next to the campground check in and camp store. We will be back. Our rig is 37 feet overall length.

I can’t say enough about the MacDill operation.. everything from checkin to checkout was perfect! The tent area is large and almost 100% shaded , The white sand beach is steps away and had the most amazing sunsets . I loved everything about our stay including the patriotism of every camper there…

  • sunsets on the white sand beach
  • beautiful spaces here in the tent area

Beautiful and Close to the Water

Like the area but just a little far from the beach. Like the little privacy you get from the vegetation separating the camp sites

Beach camping

This is a great place to stay if you’re not local. It felt like I was sleeping in my own backyard for the most part.

I made reservations for a waterfront site just to end up far back from the water and the view being mostly blocked by trees and bushes.

The site was slightly flooded from rain…

Serene and Natural

Short boat ride out to what felt like a secluded island, back when florida was all natural. We had the whole place to ourselves. Camping is definitely pack in pack out. It's worth every minute to see the sun rise and set in the same day, and the stars at night were endless

Awesome first camping trip with my son!

3.2 mile hike through mostly open Florida pine forest with the occasional swamp. Perfect time of year to come. Site has great shade and opens up at the fire pit for great star gazing. Only downside is that you are under the flight path for Tampa Intl. so you get the occasional jets above. We had a…

Camping near the best mountain bike trails in FL

Amazing place to camp if you want to catch a thrill on your bike in FL. You can bring your own bikes but we like to rent the ones there because they are made for that specific terrain (sand,stumps, etc). The biking trails are man crafted meaning HILLS in FL!

All in all a great place for an…

Great Park - Lots to Do

This is a great place to camp, beach, kayak, fish, bike, hike trails, sight-seeing historic fort, etc.

Campsites are nice, especially waterfront. However beware that some campsites that are designated as "waterfront" don't really have a water view from the site due to trees.

One of the downsides…

This campground is 2 miles from the main road therefore very quiet and peaceful. We saw turtles, rabbit and deer.

I've stayed here multiple times. I'm currently staying here for the next 15 months. It's a nice park. It's has nice big concrete lots. I also like that It has a convenience store at the front of the gated entrance.
