“Free camping in Florida”

Reviewed Jan 18, 2019

Overall Rating

This campground is a large field where you can pick any spot and is managed by the SW Florida Water Mgmt District. We were able to get a nice spot near the camp host that was perfect for solar. This is an equestrian campground, but there is a section for non-equestrian campers. You do have to get a permit (called a Special Use Licen... more

“Busy, but nice free Florida Camping”

Reviewed Jan 12, 2019

Overall Rating

This is definitely a popular camping spot. We loved this campground! Just a 4 minute drive to the shoreline of Lake Okeechobee, the largest fresh water lake in the state and about 25 – 30 minutes from the nearest town which has every store you could possibly need. The land itself is just a big open grassy field that has several barns a... more

Once I stayed in site 1 on the pond. Another time across from the pond. Loved the view and privacy of both. Sites are large with fire rings and picnic tables. So charming and quiet. A dumpster and vault toilets. Not a big fan of the trails since they’re mostly prairie but I still love the family campground at gate one. And, my dog and ... more

“Perfect Free Spot near Lake Okeechobee and Jupiter/West Palm Beach”

This was my first time staying on water management land and I loved it! I needed a place to stay for one night before my reservation started at Jonathan Dickinson State Park (over in Jupiter). My original plan was to stay at Walmart but I read conflicting information online as to whether this was allowed in Jupiter or not. I quickly ho... more

Reviewed Jun 28, 2018

New bathroom/shower facilities, plenty of sites with picnic tables, areas of shade or sunny sites to choose from. Just make sure you know which gate you are wanting to enter. There are a few entrances that are each a few miles apart. I stayed at the equestrian center.

“Great site with good amenities”

Reviewed Feb 10, 2018

Overall Rating

I’m sure this place must always be busy as it’s free and has decent washroom facilities. On the negative side it’s got the feel of your typical RV campground so it’s not a ‘getting back to nature place’, but when the price is right who’s complaining?
