Well, camping was a favorite past time of mine as a child and I wanted to share it with mine. Since this campground is not far, we decided to try it out. We don't have pets so we chose the area 1 campground for tents and no dogs. We had lot 72. The lot was big enough for a big... More

We are novice campers but decided to start with a place not so far from home. We were very happy to find water, electric, grill, and table on our site, as well as nearby shower facilities (surprisingly clean!) Ft Desoto is a beautiful park with trails, beaches, and piers to fish from. Kayak/paddle board rentals nearby. All of the campsites... More

Clean camping spots. We had a gorgeous breeze all week. Minutes to beaches. Short drive to sports stadiums, zoo (worth every penny) aquarium and nearby beach towns. Bathrooms were a bit of a dance with small kids but we managed. We will definately be back again!

We have camped here several times over the past 40 years. We never seem to get tired of beautiful Fort Desoto. Nature everywhere, fishing, beaches, paved trails to bike or rollerblade or jog. We like that it has privacy between the campsites for the most part. They are always cleaning and keeping everything nice and tidy. If you have a... More

A wonderful day at the beach. Clean and fun filled campground. The whole park is great for the whole family. You can swim, fish , bar-b-que and picnic too. Tables, benches, shade and bathhouses too. The place is clean and people are there to make sure of that. Sand is great for building sand castles. You can find a place... More

We had the pleasure to spent 2 nights here. Paid in advance and check in was very quick. Free wifi close to reception. Site was huge, just a bit tight to park. We had a beachfront site and the kids enjoyed walking around in the shallow water and watch the numerous birds. Bath house very clean, washing mashine worked perfectly... More

Great campground! Beautiful sunset from our waterview campsite. Facilities and grounds are well-maintained by park staff... And the dog beach is off-leash, which our dog really enjoyed. Moreover, the other visitors and their animals were well-behaved.

I had the recent pleasure of spending 2 nights at this beautiful location. The campground is impeccably maintained and the shower and bathroom facilities are clean. We were lucky enough to spend a lovely day at the beach and Mother Nature provided stunning sunsets both nights we were there. Our site was on the seawall side and our neighboring camper's... More
