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

They rent bikes kayaks and paddle boards! It was a... More

Fort Desoto State campground: Wonderful, beautiful, tropical, relaxing stay. We stayed from Mon-Thurs and the campground was not crowded. There are tolls to get over the bridge and then $5.00 per car for the beach, but we had a sunpass. If camping, your beach pass is covered. The weekends always seemed booked, so book ahead. We looked at the site... More

We like to take "Bogart" our male Rottweiler and "Mya" our female Rottweiler. He is 2 she is 1. This is a total gem! One of the few beaches along the Florida Gulfcoast that allows dogs; both on and off leashes. There is a fenced in grass dog park with areas to rinse and water your furry friends. Then as... More

Great camping and beautiful beaches! Bring your bike and enjoy riding along the island, seeing all the sites. North Beach is relaxing and nicely shaded. Don't miss wading out onto the sandbar and getting a closeup of the wide range of bird life. This is natural Florida at its best!

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
