The camp ground is a nice family environment, kids playing and not crazy for the 4th of July weekend. It was hot but that's to be expected in Florida during the summer. We had a site on the water and there was a nice breeze. Although the website said they were booked I called and was able to get a... More

It was crazy hot so be prepared. We were lucky to get a reservation, however, we would have liked to have a camp spot in the outside loop rather than the inside loop. We are not experienced campers and were invaded by racoons the second night three times. Be sure to put your food in your vehicle because they opened... More

The location is great for beaches. The campground is nice with a small store. Next time we will bring bikes. Nice drive to routes down the the gulf coast for day trips. So while the web site says no fires, there are rentable fire pits you can get form the store with wood to have camp fires. Also the bathrooms... More

If you're looking to camp and head to the beach this campground is great! If you stay at the campground the beach is 5 minutes away, plus you only have to pay parking once! The campground itself is fairly basic, but clean enough. The only downside is each site doesn't have sewer. Overall it's a good place to stay though!

Enjoyed Fort De Soto and the beach area thoroughly. Nice area offering many options for campers and those who enjoy walking, cycling and generally relaxing. Not as busy as other areas in St. Pete's and that makes it a much nicer area to visit. The sand is also a little better and there is abundant car parking as well as... More

North beach was nice, clean and had room for everyone to play. The water was shallow for a ways out so it was great for littler children. The sand was soft, not too many shells to step on. Our kids had a wonderful time. The north beach rinsing off station wasn't working correctly and so only one spout was useable.... More

Great campground, roomy sites, many right on the water. Great views and sunrises. Be aware there is no alcohol allowed in the campground or park. There are also not many stores around, other then convenience stores but no Walmart.

We went to drop my daughter off for an end of year school picnic and decided to drive around and explore while we were there. Just a beautiful backdrop for the pavillions, which were a very good size, each with enough space and waterfront access. The place we fell in love with, however, was the campground. We took our time... More

Get there early. We came on holiday weekend and arrived at about 10am. We beat the traffic. Left around 2:30 and cars where backed up to main road where we got off exit. Nice because they have public failities, showers, playgrounds for the kids, picnic areas, and allow grilling on beach. Easier to find parking then other west coast beaches... More
