The Park Model was cramped for five (room meant for 4 people) but it certainly met our needs for one night and we couldn't beat the price. The beds were comfortable, AC was cold and the water was hot. What more could you ask for? It's a fish camp. We had several questions about kayaking the Wakulla river and the... More

I stayed here for several nights at the end of March. It's a great location for the national wildlife refuge, Wakulla Springs, and other attractions. The rooms are basic, simple motel rooms. It's nothing fancy, but the reasonable price reflects that. The room was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very flexible when I had to change my travel plans... More

At 45, I've stayed at some unique places in my life. Cabins on top of a Smokey Mountain ridge, the Plaza in downtown St. Louis, The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, and even a motel in the middle of the Florida Keys with a salt water pool carved out of coral rock. However, this place is now in my top 5... More

I love this fish camp. I been several times with my father, and we always have great service from the front desk. We like the tab system of paying. From everything for your charter, bait, room and beer, it all goes on one bill. The rooms are small but clean too.

My friend and I come here each year, reserve the same cabin. The staff are awesome, the place is very clean and SAFE!! You can't beat the price. Quiet, out of the way place worth the drive. The larger cabins have a full kitchen and the little cabins have a microwave, small fridge and coffee maker. Area outside to grill... More

We were blown away.. we expected a hole in the wall with a bunch of stinky fishermen. We had busy days planned and really all we needed was a clean room. We chose the motel and walked into sparking, newly remodeled and well designed rooms with comfy beds and a 50's modern design. There are also "cracker style"duplexes and sweet... More

We went as a big group, some of us stayed in the hotel some in the cabin. It was very nice for the price. We all had a cook out under the pavilion with other couples, it was so nice everyone shared. The cabin had an amazing AC and the appliances worked well. Make sure you bring all your utensils... More

The day started off very nice. Besides the fact that the Lady at the register was smoking a cigarette inside the store while talking to a customer, we received our boat rental and instructions on how to use the boat quickly and kindly. They even filled up an ice chest for us in case we caught any fish. As we... More

Fee structure and maximum number of passengers is always explained at time of booking the rental and again at signing the rental contract. The rental contract states the number of... More

We only had one short night here and as we arrived well after dark, we didn't really get much chance to experience what looked like a delightful spot. We were riding motorbikes from Orlando to LA and this was our first stop off after a long and tiring ride out of Orlando. Our room was clean and comfortable and excellent... More

If you grew up and fished anywhere along the Gulf Coast in the 50's and 60's before condos and similar development, you'll really enjoy this bit of yesterday. The Fish Camp is authentic "old Florida" and, as noted in other reviews, the staff is friendly and laid-back. Plan to bring your own vittles (microwave cooking only) or visit Savannah's or... More
