We went with friends that recommended the visit for the day. Plenty of parking. Great day outing for a pick nick or BBQ. The kids will love it. The beaches are great. They have pick nick tables available and charcoal bbq's available but u will need to clean them. So take what u need to accomplish that including the charcoal.... More

I love to camp and this capsite was, by far one of the most beautiful I've ever been to! The park ranger was rather rude and made snarky remarks but once we got settled in, we forgot about him and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Do yourself a favor and take the ferry out to the island with the light house.... More

This was our favorite campground and park on our 10 day trip (other campgrounds were in the Keys)! From check-in to check-out everything was great - organized, efficient, friendly helpful staff, clean large site with privacy. Restrooms and showers clean and always had toilet paper & paper towels. Washer and dryers available ($1 wash, 0.75 dry). I'll post about beaches... More

Spent two nights family camping for Spring Break and really enjoyed it here. There was No Vacancy while were there but were lucky to have chosen nights when other like-minded campers were visiting, too. Everyone tried to keep restrooms clean, observed 10 pm quiet-hour and were friendly. Used the day room to play cards at night with the kids, and... More

I've always wanted to stay at this campground and was able to score one night in March on my spring break. I didn't get a waterfront site but it was literally a few steps away. Gorgeous setting - appreciated the picnic table and I understand you can rent a fire pit. I had heard about Pinellas Kayak Rentals - they... More

Five of us camped here in two tents on a waterfront site. All sites are equipped with a nice, clean grill and a pole with a hook for your lanterns or clothesline, and there is ample shade. Sites are separated with plantings for some privacy. Access to the water with our kayaks was easy, and we simply dragged them the... More

My wife and I came here for our anniversary to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a while and enjoy some peace and restful relaxation. Fort De Soto definitely provided that for us in spades and we were able to have a great experience! The camp grounds are nice - but if you are camping,... More

We are camping four nights at Fort De Soto Park. Our site is excellent, with frontage on the water! During our morning coffee we had two bald eagles fly right by our site. We also saw dolphins swimming nearby! The bath house facilities are clean and functional. Staff are friendly and helpful. The beaches are a short bike ride from... More

More expensive than state parks, no fire pit but beautiful. Bathrooms could use updating and so could playground. Bring kayaks if you have them for inside the campground. You can walk/bike to the beach. There are some nice playgrounds down there. Laundry available and cheap (only about 75 cents per load). Make sure you bring everything you need with you... More

The raccoons have gone away. Well, not all of them, but we only saw a handful. It probably wont take long for them to reproduce though. Thanks for getting rid of them! It was very pleasant in our campsite #10 on the water. This year there were no winds and the weather was mostly pleasant. Our site was spacious, but... More
