Plenty of room for my 34’ class A. Lots of nonpotable water sigots typical of an equestrian facility. Pit toilet was clean enough. No garbage cans.

We have a 40' Montana that's 13' 5" tall. There were maybe 2 sites that will work for a really tall rig. It is a beautiful, clean, quiet area...but it didnt really work for us. The internet/cellular coverage is almost non existent. We have Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. Only Verizon worked and most of the time it was maybe 2 bars. We work... more

Campsites were clean and nicely spread out. We shared the camping area with two horse riding couples with horse trailer campers, a couple tent camping, a family tent camping, a single woman and a single man tent camping. We rode our bikes down very muddy roads and this is the dry season. Overall this a great camp to stay in for a night... more

“Great campground, but no internet”

Stayed here two nights in the middle of January 2019. Free campsite maintained by the Southwest Florida Water Management District. To camp, you need to obtain a permit ahead of time on the website. https://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/recreation/hampton-tract . You get your approval almost immediately. You need that because it will have... more

“Susceptible to Standing Water”

Reviewed Jan 11, 2019

Overall Rating

Performed an on-site reconnaissance of this campground today. Multiple big rig friendly sites. Height clearance is not an issue at the Hampton Tract. Spoke with a Southwest Florida Water Management District maintenance person onsite and the major con with the Hampton Tract Campground is that the campground turns into a swamp with a ... more

Quiet and secure, away from the hustle of humanity. Pick your spot! We came to the campsite and made it a total of 4 camps. If not for one who had a regular generator ( loud ) it would have been 5 stars. Hawk nest above us, white owls and we saved a squirrel from drowning in the horse trough. Walked the trails and saw gators and t... more

Close to Tampa and yet it feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Great trails, quiet and clean site, with lots of shade. Just a note for those approaching from South, the turning into the entrance is a left turn off a tricky bend which if you are looking for oncoming traffic means you see a sign saying WMA camp 5.4 miles - don’t f... more

“Great secluded camping in Florida”

Ditto to everything the previous reviewer said. Enjoyed our time here and the few other campers there at the time were quiet and respectful. Plenty of biking and hiking opportunity. Close to town if needed. Well maintained sites under oak canopy. Once you get the knack of the SWFWMD campground reservation system it's easy. You just can... more

This isn't a typical Florida campground that many people are used to, i.e. you may well be the only camper there! It is managed land that is designed to recharge the Florida aquifer by keeping over 10,000 acres of public land undeveloped and be still available for FREE public use: camping (with permit arranged in advance), riding (bi... more
