Overall Rating

This place is beautiful, semi quiet since it is packed most of the time. I have stayed there about 20 times over the years. It is easy to get a spot on weekdays but weekends is terrible. Sometimes you have to move. I take my Kayak's and fish. I also take it out in the ocean since it is an Ocean Kayak but be very careful of the curr... more

“Peaceful Beach Stay ”

Reviewed Jan 12, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a nice stay to get away from crowds and enjoy nature by the beach. Beautiful sunsets, many birds, funny raccoons, and some pests of course. Each site seems private. Staying at a waterfront site is very nice and worth it (on the west side). Sites are Sandy of course so you will track in sand, but that is to be expected. Laundry... more

“Hidden gem!!”

Reviewed Dec 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Great campground! We had a beautiful waterfront spot. Quiet, clean, good facilities, spacious, could drop kayak in right from our site. Camped in a 41’ class A. Some low branches brushed the roof but did no damage. But then we’re 13’6” high... took some maneuvering to back in our spot as the feeder road is not very wide and lined wi... more

This campground is a great hidden gem. Well maybe not totally hidden since it does book up a lot, but it's a county park so maybe overlooked sometimes. But that's better for you!! It is surrounded with ocean views from most of the sites, with paved bike or walking/running trails to many more beaches including a specific dog beach just ... more

“Waterfront is worth the extra $2”

Reviewed Nov 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Gorgeous campsite on the water, they do charge $2 extra for waterfront, but it’s definitely worth it. Verizon worked well with our cell booster, but we could only use ATT at the camp store. Lots of bike trails and a beautiful beach to watch the sunset. Convenient to grocery stores and all St. Pete has to offer! Bathrooms were clean and... more

Background: this was the first place my soon to be wife and I ever camped (tent) together 45 years ago and the first picture ever taken of us as a couple was taken at the fort at that time, while I was in the USAF and stationed at MacDill AFB after returning from a tour in Vietnam. We were married a couple of months after this trip. ... more

Pinellas County residents can make a reservation 7 months in advance, while the rest of us only have a 6 month window. I booked our sites for Christmas through New Years 6 months to the day in advance and couldn't get 1 site for the entire stay, so we had to move 2 times. We previously stayed here 10 years ago and loved it. The camp... more

There is so much to do and see. We took our bike and road for miles. The beach was lovely and on some days it was clear enough to snorkel. There are dolphins! We didn't have enough time to fish but there are plenty; fish are jumping out of the water here. There are waterways so you could rent a kayak overnight or longer. Tips: Make sur... more

Disclaimer: So first of all.. if you are lucky enough to score a waterfront spot or even one of the super spacious pull-thus, your experience WILL differ from ours - you'll likely agree with all of the 5 star reviews.

I stayed here for 4 days (03/07/2016 - 03/11/2016) in site 112. This park is very popular for a good reason. Its location is right on the calm crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There's shopping about 5 miles up the road for grocery necessities etc. The sites themselves are water and non water locations. If you can, do your best t... more
