“My salvation!”

Reviewed Mar 27, 2017

Overall Rating

On a Thursday afternoon with no reservations, I happened to roll into Tampa Bay on spring break weekend.  Much to my dismay nearly all the public campgrounds were full. After several minutes of roadside phone calls and a chain of referrals to other places, I called here. E.G. Simmons was the only place with walk-in spots available. My salvation!

Expectations were low as it was the last place available, so imagine my surprise to find a beautiful, well kept, tropical oasis. This park happens to be an excellent fishing, boating, paddling, cycling and beach combing park with white sand beaches, palm trees and manatees. Nearly all the campsites have water access and there are several picnic shelters, playgrounds, and a boat ramp. On spring break weekend this place was perfectly chill and just what I needed. I love it when serendipity results in a discovery like this.

The only con is that it's a bit removed. Although that could also be a pro depending on your agenda. You're looking at about a 45 min drive to get to downtown Tampa, St. Petes or Sarasota.
