Secret Island off the Coast

Ft. Desoto campground is very nice and off the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a nice place to fish or take your dogs to the dog beach. There can be a lot of small sharks in this area, so be aware. I've also seen many manatees in the colder months. There is even a secret, secluded Island about a 45 min canoe ride out where you can camp as well. That is my favorite spot!

Creekside Camping

Beautiful campsites next to Deep Creek. Great location - secluded and not well known, so not overcrowded which is a plus. Definitely worth a visit!

By Far the best camping!

primitive and paid campsites both available, depending on your comfort level and preference. I prefer primitive - you will need a pass when not camping in a camp ground which cost very little per night. The hiking trails are mind blowing with great views and river side. Must see arches and natural bridges. This park is a wonderland for rock climbers. The best campsites are by water. Beautiful camping all year round! Dogs are more than welcome :)

Lake-side Camping

Private campsites, nice big lake for swimming, fishing and boating, pets allowed. Perfect for all seasons! Horseback riding available as well!
