We rented site 19 and though it was a tight spot for our pop up camper, the site was good for a 3-night stay. site #18 is more private and larger and the one we'd recommend next time. The campground sites were fairly close together compared to other campgrounds but we didn't let that bother us. We rented a boat... More

We had a few people with us and wanted a Campsites next to each other. We had woods separating us. We stayed Fri through Mon. Memorial Weekend. Everything was great until Sunday when the park manager came down to our campsite and got into a pregnant campers face while she was holding her 2 year old yelling at her about... More

This unpleaseant experience for all involved began with the complaining party's violation of four rules of the campground. 1. Be reasonable with campfires -They had pulled three fire rings together stacked with large chunks of firewood about four feet high -in short, they were indulging a bonfire. 2. Quiet after ten -they were being consistently loud and a sound nuisance... More

This was our first trip here, some of our group showed up Thursday and the rest came Friday. We requested ajoining sites and upon arrival noticed that the sites had a wooded area between the two, we requested a changed and were informed we could not switch due to another reservation that never showed up. So the whole time were... More

We are sorry that the adjoining sites could not be achieved. After reading this review, it seems that under the same circumstances, a different situation would not have been possible as we had no idea the other party would not show up. No one ever has to walk through another site as a loop road connects them all with very... More

Beautiful place to tent, the site was small but the area is nice and wooded, nice shower house, drinking water hose, pit toilet in rustic area, however- firewood is crazy pricey. Buy it somewhere else first.

Chass is a small family run campground with full hookups for low prices. Wifi is excellent (streaming works fine) and the lady who owns the place is a great person! Sites are in mostly in shadow but not that large with not that much privacy. You rent kanoes and kayaks and start paddling in the Chass river which is really... More

Tent camping area was nice. Reasonably well spaced sites with plenty of vegetation to give it that secluded feel. The shower house was nice, but I could see where it might become an issue with only 2 showers for the entire campground. Rec room has a flat screen TV with Directv, as well as shuffleboard, horseshoes, etc. Highlight though is... More

We tent camped in February 2015 at the tent loop which had buffers of vegetation for privacy. The site was damp and shady so it was cold but in warmer months that would probably be appreciated. The bath house was in excellent condition and clean. The paddling was very good going downstream in shallow clear spring water. Exploring the tributaries... More

Beautiful campground. The sites are walking distance to the boating ramp where you can rent kayaks or canoes. The people that work there were very helpful and welcoming. Bathrooms looked new and were very clean. Sites were clean. There are rv sites with water sewer and electric hook ups and then there are primitive tent sites available. Definitely recommend staying... More

Beautiful place. Primitive camping sites are really nice. Boating on the Chaz was amazing. Clear water and let's not forget about the Manatees. The kids were beyond amazed. If I had to pick one bad thing to say, it would be the noise at night. It's supposed to be quiet time between 10pm and 6am. Our first two nights were... More

We discovered this campground a month ago when paddling in the area and we decided to return and camp here. We stayed four nights and had a great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. Angela offered great tips on paddling the Chass as well as tips on other destinations in Florida. The rates were very reasonable compared to other... More
