Our reservation was just cancelled and they said the camp is closed due to flooding that we should call to find out when it's open.

“Great boondocking in FL”

We loved this place. A little challenge at 1st finding. Don’t enter Cypress Creek into Google Maps that will take you to main entrance and not camping spot. Trust coordinates here. There are 2 spots with one labeled as equestrian. We stayed in the non-equestrian spot which is smaller. The equestrian spot had several big rigs with not a... more

Made a free reservation and obtained the gate code. Online reservation system used by the Southwest Florida Water Management District was great. We visited Cypress Creek Preserve early afternoon to check road and height conditions and clearance. The primitive camping area is not accessible to 13 ft height clearance and there is not ... more

Buuuugsss. At this time of year I guess there’s lots of black nasty bugs that are everywhere. Millions of them. Other than that my favorite get away place.

Is it churlish to complain about a free campsite? I feel it is slightly, but maybe I was spoilt by the previous week in a camp where there was a permanent drop toilet and not a full almost to touching the seat temporary set up here. I’m not particularly fussy but it put me off and along with the fact that I couldn’t find any decent tra... more

“Pleasant Adventure in Land O Lakes”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Overall, I had a very positive experience at the primitive campground. Pros... The primitive area has 2 sites, each with picnic tables and fire rings. There's also an roofed group area with a grill. The grounds are well maintained and wonderful long dirt roads for walking or bike riding. Quite a few dog walkers and people are gener... more

“Great spot...but get correct directions!”

Reviewed Dec 31, 2017

Overall Rating

When we put the 5500 Parkway address into Google maps, it took us to the cross street of Regina Place which is NEAR a corner of the preserve boundary, but the only RV access is quite a ways south, toward Pine View Elementary School. You have to make a turn to continue on the correct leg of Parkway Blvd. So don't trust Google maps on th... more

“Great free spot”

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was great. We stayed in the equestrian area. It was easy to access, and one group was just leaving as we got here. Never more than one other spot taken while we were here. I think it might be a party spot on the weekends, but we stayed through the week, so I don't really know. One loud-ish group was h... more

Another free and beautiful location in Florida. Who says there are no free camping in Florida? Access is via A locked gate where you can get the combination by completing a free reservation online. Combination will be sent to you via email. This is a very small primitive camping area. I would suggest if you were a larger rig to head t... more
