“Great Free Camp Close to Tampa”

Be aware you do need to make a free reservation to get the code for the gate.

This was my first time boondocking in my van with my partner. It was a great place for newbies as we felt very secure and safe. You need to have the code for the gate to enter the area and the gate is locked all the time.

We did have a little confusion at first. When you type Washburn Equestrian Area into Google Maps it takes you to Oakridge Equestrian area. After a little bit, we figured out that Washburn Equestrian area was just down the road.

This campsite had, at the time (February 16th, 2019), 3 picnic tables and 3 fire rings, and a porter potty. It seems that porter potty is emptied frequently. It was not that bad when we got there and was emptied on our last day.

There is a main road near the campsite, but I did not find it too loud or disturbing. There is some forest between the campsite and the road.

It was a very secluded and peaceful place to camp.
