3rd winter here. This is the only one with a view of the lake. There is one on Torry island inside the levee but with 600 campers and tall grass they can't see the lake :( Most GPS will take you to the center of town, 190 N. Lake is actually up over the levee to the lake and left. BTW the address on the office says 90, someday they will put the 1 back up. Cheaper to pay for a month. The grounds keeping is done by Public Works, another truck for the baths. You will see them all coming in to check their systems plus Fish & Game checking the fishermen's catch and the Palm Beach police tend to take their breaks here. New this year is 12 hour night security and there are 3 doggy waste stations, each is across from a bath. One of the reasons for that night security is there has been some petty theft of unlocked items, a few bikes, fishing gear, a ministers wallet from his unlocked car, my solar lights and a flag I put on the site so late arrivals wouldn't think the site was available when we were off exploring. Unlike most Florida campgrounds there are no perment campers here. I think the limit is 11 months. All 118 campsites are lakefront. Across the road from your site is a grass covered levee so there is plenty of maneuvering room except sites 21 and 22 across from the dump station. If your neighbors are angled in to better watch the sunset you'll need to also. All sites are close to level and hard packed. If you need to put in tent stakes you should ask for a site with somethings to tie onto like a tree, pole, table or fireplug. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.
Your on your own, this site won't let me post a list

On the lower camp sites you hardly hear the traffic on 46. Most of the upper sites are park model trailers, cabins and campers who haven't been on the road in years. Nice quiet campground except if they are mowing lawn or pumping out. If your kids will be playing basketball, volleyball or on the playground Oak 6 might be a perfect site, you could watch them from your picnic table. The heated pool looked good but it was too wet and cool while we were there so we never got to try it. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Motorhome.
The office has a good selection if you forgot anything. They serve breakfast, lunch and diner if you forgot everything. There is Marshalls Farm Market about a block south, easy walk unless you buy a lot of produce, pies, home made sausage and bacon and fixn's.

As a regular on I-95 I've avoided stopping at South of the Border but we were heading north in hard rain and running out of daylight. By the time the Good Sam GPS said we arrived we were past the sign :( I was pleasantly surprised, the place was friendly, organized, gated, clean and easy to navigate. The site was easy to back into and more than the usual space between sites. Only problem was in this driving rain there was a deep puddle around the connections and I waited until the lightning past before plugging in. We departed the next morning without having to buy any fireworks :) We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

This is the only campground on the lake other than Bella Glade where the grass is too high to see the lake. All of the others are on the backside of the dike. The main attraction here is sunset scoring, gator and manatee counting. This was our 2nd visit here, 2 months in 2016, 3 months in 2017 and we have made reservations for 2018. All sites are lakefront with plenty of manuvering room except 21 and 22 that are across from dump station which I have never seen anyone use. This is a quiet campground for snowbirds, retires, fishermen and locals who come for the weekends. There is no playground on site for kids. There is a small one in town next to the library. The pool is not heated but stayed in the mid 70's all winter. The campground is run by the city and it's their public works department that does an excellent job keeping it clean and mowed. There are some reviews that call the town scary, it is poor but I walk to the post office a few times a week, barber shop, Save-a-Lot and the dollar stores and never worried. I wouldn't walk into town at night but the locals you meet there, the fishing breakwater and picnic area are friendly. The towns problems don't spill over into the campground maybe because this is where a lot of Palm Beach County police take their breaks and patrols come thru 4-6 times a day. The police boat is kept here also. Shopping is limited in town but I run into West Palm to dive a few times a week and hit Publix and BJ's while there. The only down side this year is the Tiki Bar was closed but a new owner is coming. There is a propane truck that comes thru usually on Tuesday and Thursday. Daily rate is $35, I think tent sites are $25 but you are better off renting by the month. $240 plus tax, bed fee, water and metered electric will be about $350 The office is closed Sunday, Tuesday and Holidays. There is supposably free Wi-Fi but usually you can only get it at the office, the repeaters on the bathrooms don't seem to be working. We camped at Pahokee Marina & Campground (formerly Pahokee Marina / Lake Okeechobee in a Motorhome.
