New sites (nearing completion as of 12/27/10) will be fantastic! Much larger and more private than old sites. All have full hookups, unlike old sites. Bathhouses looked amazing from the outside. Cellular service is sketchy at campsite, but solid at "Concession" building. Concession has food, gifts, boat, bike rentals, and FREE WiFi. Wi-Fi also available after hours in parking lot near building. Lots to do at park. We saw many deer and armadillo. On warm winter day we saw DOZENS of alligators basking on the shore (your mileage may vary). Canopy walkway was impressive (1 of only 9 in USA, 30 in whole world). Beaches at Siesta Key (25 minutes west) are whitest I have ever seen. Public access paths and parking lots just north (and probably south) of the main beach offer much less crowded experience.

Great dry camping near beach. Some sites are on the road and some are tucked back in the trees. A few have view of ocean beyond the dunes. Tent campers will find more privacy than big rigs. Clean bathrooms have running water. No water or electric at sites. Showers are primitive, cold water only. Dump station is few miles away at other NPS camp ground, Cape Point. But scenery is MUCH more interesting at Frisco. Cape Point is like camping on a soccer field. Driving permitted on beach (until 10pm) and access is right outside the park. Well stocked convenience/tackle store with free air for tires located 0.5 mile from beach access. Not to be confused with Frisco Woods (which is also nice, but very different).
