“Great location! ”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2019

Overall Rating

Just off the main road, you can hear the noise but that's better than miles of potholes to me. It was within an hour of every beach from Bradenton to Fort Meyers. And it was within 10 minutes of a Walmart, that's luxury. Just a spigot of non-potable water and a portapotty that was serviced during our stay and stayed clean. It is a ... more

“Very nice spot close to Port Charlotte, FL”

Reviewed Feb 22, 2019

Overall Rating

This was our first "Dry Camping" experience. Really enjoyed the SWFMA property and the other campers that were there (about 4-5 other rigs). The reservation permit process was easy...
Telling stories around the fire was a great way to make friends.
The Nav-A-Gator Grill is a fun restaurant/bar just down the road on the Peace River

“Big Rig Friendly Close to I-75”

Reviewed Feb 07, 2019

Overall Rating

Big rig friendly with picnic tables and fire rings scattered throughout the camping area. One portable toilet was on-site and was serviceable. Verizon cell service was 25.1 Mbps download and 1.77 Mbps upload. AT&T cell service was 2.44 Mbps download and 0.00 upload. The campground has a mix of open sun sites, partial shade, and shade.

“Peaceful Shady Boondocking”

Reviewed Dec 31, 2018

Overall Rating

Deep Creek is a primitive camping area with lots of space, and shade. The Spanish moss hangs over the campsites and provides a very nice view! There are normal chain shopping areas nearby which makes reprovisionig very easy. Cell service on TMobile was not as great but AT&T was better, we did not have Verizon while here. Great... more

“Convenient boondocking location near Port Charlotte, FL”

Reviewed Dec 13, 2018

Overall Rating

The camping area is just inside the front gate and has several options for being in the sun or shade. You should walk your route if you are going to drive around the trees since there are plenty of low hanging branches. There are picnic tables and fire rings in the camp areas. Non-potable water is located in the camp area and intend... more

We enjoyed this place for a dew days. We did not like the road noise at this place. We would stay again as a stopover but not as a destination spot.

“Great little place!”

Reviewed Nov 30, 2017

You must submit an online reservation request and allow at least 5 days to get the email confirmation. The email will give you the gate padlock code. Without this, you can't take an RV in, but there is a 24 hour walk in space if you are carrying your tent and supplies. Hiking trails, access to the Peace River (a few miles). Total peace... more

“Quiet and Nice, but Buggy”

Reviewed Nov 29, 2017

Overall Rating

First of all, free camping is amazing and we're so thankful this option exists! Plus, this area was very pretty with the mossy trees and palmettos. There were just a few drawbacks for us though: the grass hadn't been cut in several weeks and it was nearly as tall as our little dogs -- which wasn't ideal for walking them. It was extreme... more
