Went in on a Sunday so had to go dry for one night. Monday was put in hookup a lot of construction going on so was hard to get around. I guess the only complaint would be to many full timers staying long term which makes it hard for ones that want to stay a couple of weeks and go one. People working here were great . - jamie1

Called in advance, couldn't get answer. Emailed & told to check back. Emailed again & told dry camping only though 5 spaces near us stayed empty our entire 2day stay. Don't put a mat down on their nonexistent grass to cover the decaying dog poo left by others. Staff condescending and don't even begin to believe the posted office times. Horrible directions- sent us to a closed gate and we had to unhook toad to turn around. Poor signage to let you know you are heading to the right place. - Belle-Bailey

Great place to stay. Nice facilities and great options for beach, gym, golf and other on base activities. We stayed one night in overflow, dry camping and then got right into a regular site. Upgrades on many of the 30 amp sites are underway. We'd stay there again in our 40' motorhome. - rwarner22

Just spent a week here in site #69 in East side. West side is closed for utility upgrade. This is a no reserve campground, so if you want a waterfront site arrive Monday through Thursday. It fills up on Fridays for the weekend. No camp hosts to clean up this week, so the bath houses were dirty. The rangers just did a resupply of paper. There is good fishing here, which is our main reason for camping here. There is a security gate. You must arrive before 6 pm to get a campsite. There is no refund so we pay for just 2 or 3 nights at a time. We had lots of mosquitoes the first night, but once the planes sprayed, they were gone on day 3. Lots of grass and some sites have shade trees. No privacy between sites. - June from Savann ahb

This is a very nice setting for a campground. All the sites that we saw were backin/pullin. If you back in to about half the sites, the utilities are on the wrong side. If you pull in with a travel trailer or fifth wheel, you may have a problem getting the tow vehicle in or out to unhook or hookup if the sites next to you are occupied. All the sites we saw had a 30 amp and 20 amp recepticle. Some of the 30 amp recepticles were damaged, however they did come and look at one that I reported (didn't replace it though). There were several camp hosts. they did't seem to know that much about the area even though one said they had been coming there for several years. They also seemed more interested in each other and those they knew then helping someone new to the area. Despite a leash rule, the camp host in site 11 West let their cat run loose all the time and a nearby camper had their dog off leash. Not the park's fault, but the gnats were terrible the last week in March. They got through the screens on the trailer enmass. Again, not the park's fault; Verizon service said 4G, but speed was consistently 1-2mbs. - trailertraveler

Busy place but quiet evenings and nights. Sites are on grass and sand, most along the salt marsh mangroves. Most are level, a few trees, about 30 feet between sites, easy access. Great playgrounds, canoes for rent, dock, walking trails. No reservations. Bugs were not bad for March and we did fine with standard DEET spray. - rudyhehn

Rate shown is Good Sam rate for peak season. Their summer rate is slightly less. This is an older park that civilization has now surrounded. A six lane highway (Gandy Blvd) is on the park's north perimeter. I would recommend avoiding sites 555 thru 572 that back up to the highway unless you enjoy traffic noise at all hours. A large section of the park is devoted to well-kept park model homes. Most of the RV sites are 90 degree back-ins and a little tight for large towables. There are a few pull-thrus that can accommodate larger rigs. Staff is friendly. Park is convenient to most parts of the Tampa Bay area. No cable in the section we stay in and trees can interfere with satellite reception. However, OTA reception is excellent. We have stayed here several times and will again in the future. - halfdimes

We were looking for a park to set up in while visiting family in St Pete. Everyone we encountered was great from the front desk to the guy who took us to our spot and helped us back in and explained all the hook ups just in case I wasn't sure :) What we didn't like was that most of this park is permanent mobile homes, they were well maintained but our spot was in between two mobile homes. Now this wasn't such a problem since we were only using our rig to sleep in, but if we were looking for a good camping spot to hang out in this really didn't give us the right feel. Didn't get a chance to use the pool or anything, but all looked well maintained. - danewguy

We originally planned to stay one week but liked the park and area so well we extended to two. The office staff is very helpful but hours are a little problematic. The office is open M-F from 9-4 (closed 12-1 for lunch). Closed on weekends. We had a reservation but arrived on a Sat. Staff left info for us and there is a phone to call the on duty person who came and helped us get into our space. He was great. Roads are narrow and I haven't seen any pull thru spaces but the back ins (once you get parked) have plenty of room. There are big shade trees all around which is good/bad. Nice to sit outside but they drop stuff all over the coach. Not all spaces have the trees. Love the outdoor laundry. There are plenty of machines and they are reasonably priced. Went in and looked at restrooms (which are clean) but use our own facilities. There are a lot of folks here long term but they are friendly and there are lots of fun activities going on. The only down side is the shooting range that is next door. Weekends and Wednesdays I felt like I was in a war zone but then I am not a gun aficionado. If we come back to St. Pete we will definitely stay here. - TwoE's

We stayed for several days and visited friends and attractions in the area. There is a lot to do in the area and in the park. It is an extended stay park and they also have cottages for winter rentals. The site surface is crushed shells. Recycling is mandatory. Many of the residents are permanent. It is an adults only park, although children are allowed to visit residents. We found it a very comfortable place to stay and would return. - grandma0942

The daily rate reflects a monthly rate with a Good Sam discount. Winter months are slightly higher. This was our fourth extended stay at Tampa South. The manager is the absolute best. RV sites are level with crushed shell bases and kept weed free. The access roads are paved asphalt and very well maintained. A few sites are close for larger rigs. Utility hookups and WiFi are good but our sites required a 50' electric cord. Full recycling services are available on site. For the most part, the people who stay here are a great bunch of folks. There are definite cliques among the regulars, however, so it is possible to feel left out if you are a newcomer. The main detractions to the park are the no-see-ums that will eat you alive in the evenings if there is no breeze and the high mineral content water (kind of standard for many of the parks in the area). We buy drinking water (especially for the animals) and ice. Resort is on Hwy 41 and there is some road noise and also train noise several times day and night (but after a few days you don't hear it. Golf courses nearby. Boating right on the river. Close to Sun City and shopping. Cats are permitted but dogs are restricted for new residents but grandfathered for prior guests. We camped at Tampa South RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel. - Bill Healy

The daily rate reflects a monthly rate with a military discount. This was our second extended stay at Tampa South. Tammy, the manager, is the absolute best. The RV sites are level with crushed shell bases. The access roads are paved asphalt and very well maintained. The utility hookups and WiFi are good but not great. Full recycling services are available on site. For the most part, the people who stay here are a great bunch of folks. There are definite cliques among the regulars, however, so it is possible to feel left out if you are a newcomer. The main detractions to the park are the no-see-ums that will eat you alive in the evenings if there is no breeze and the very high mineral content water. Even with a water softener, the poor quality of the water is overwhelming. We had to buy drinking water and ice. - Byron Bailey

Nice , quiet RV park. Sites weren't too bad compared to several that we saw. Staff was friendly and very visible throughout our stay. Pool was clean and warm. Hot tub was also on property but we didn't use it. Wi-Fi was available in hot spots up near the laundry and rec room. - Bompa1954
Jan 2012 - $40.00
Very nice park. Owners extremely accommodating. We were able to get a spot at the height of their busy season. W/E/S easy to get to and worked beautifully. We were right across from pool and hot tub/spa. Our site was very long, but extremely narrow. Could not open our window awning on our LR slide without hitting neighbor. Could only open full awning if site next to us was empty. Less than 5 feet of walking space between sites. Nice laundry facilities, heated pool, spa, bocce courts, deck shuffleboard and paved roads for bike riding. Very convenient to shopping, attractions, beaches, restaurants. Except for proximity of sites, it's a nice park. Would stay again if just for a few nights. - usamacdonald2
Feb 2010 - $40.00
The most friendly park we have been to. No matter where the people are from, they all say: "Hi how is it going?" When we got here on an unusual cold Florida day, the manager parked our travel trailer for us. One we got settled in, we found so many park activities that we didn't even have time to do them all. There are even monthly dances and dinners. There were so many couples who come here year after year I am surprised the place is not fully booked. I am so happy that we chose this place for our winter stay and we plan on being another couple who makes this our yearly winter place. I cannot wait for next winter! - jessesgirl333

We ended up at this park late on a Saturday evening. There are a lot of permanent sites and one of those people helped us into an overflow spot until morning. The staff was pleasant and moved us to a regular site the next day. They have a very nice pool and paved streets. We stayed a total of 3 nights. The club house has great pool tables and exercise equipment. - queenie2014

This is a big park, most of it is park models and mobile home units. There are some spots available for motorhomes and fivers. Lots to do. Nice for walking and riding bikes. The staff and residents are friendly. I stayed there one week, used the time there to scout for other places for next winter. - retiredblade
Dec 2009 - $32.00
They bill themselves as an RV resort, yet 90% of this park is for mobile homes and park models. It is also more of a retirement village than a campground. It's totally sold out to snowbirds in winter and they make a little extra money renting empty spaces out to transient RV's off season. They have ton's of activities here and the 2 clubhouses seem to have something going on every day. They have an excellent walking trail that features alligators. It's about 2 miles to a gas station and 6 miles to a grocery store or fast food. It's located close to I-75 and you can drive to St Petersburg in about 20 minutes. - mouldsfn
Dec 2016 - $26.00
Rate reflects a monthly rate. This 55 plus park has mainly grass sites with hookups near the back of the sites. Our site wasn't very level side to side as my wheels were off the ground on the off door side. Our site had really good wifi but we were lucky as the wifi tower was right behind our site. Very nice swimming pool and a fair amount of activites. Quite a few full time and seasonal residents but everyone kept their sites clean and everyone we met were very friendly. Mainly Mexican community next door and people had some stuff stolen from the campground. We would stay there again. - Hihocarp

This truly is a hidden gem. The park is easy to navigate, has grassy/sandy sites. There is a beautiful pool, great river access with a dock for fishing and fish cleaning table. We arrive on Sat. office was closed there was a list of sites to choose from, all pull thru. We checked in Mon. when office opened again, staff in office was great, really work with you. It was off season so not many park model owners around, but the ones who were there were super friendly. We were in the area house hunting and it was close to the areas where we were looking, close to Sun City Ctr. shopping as well as Ruskin and easy access to I-75. Big rig friendly. We got a weekly rate of $122 with one of our memberships, but can't remember which one. It's a 55+ park also so no kids or noise. - grammiejan

Very friendly staff, very accommodating. Many activities. On the Little Manatee River. Many permanent, semi permanent residents. Also many large campsites. We stayed here for two months and will return next year. Campground is about a mile back off the road away from road noise. This is an older campground with new site additions. Many activities for everyone at the campground. - Sunne

If you're looking for Yogi or KOA, this ain't it. These people live here and work hard and keep to themselves and are polite enough. Our fiver barely fit in our site, next to an even bigger fiver. But the staff is nice enough and it's very convenient to a mall and several other shopping centers. There was a hole on our site when we moved in. We mentioned it to an office worker and there was a guy here with a wheel barrow full of mulch that day. And they were trying to catch the guy who wasn't cleaning up after his dog. A fair price for a convenient stay in season. - melissabrvs

I Do Not Recommend this RV park to anyone. First of all it's located in a really sketchy part of Tampa. We were there for 3 months. Our first month, during the daylight hours, we caught 3 local kids stealing one of our bikes, got it back that time, but a week later, they came back and cut the locks off both our bikes and took both of them. These kids continued to come back over and over. Also managing to steal other RVers bikes.
When it first happen, the acting manager said and I quote, "I can't be outside 24/7." Excuse me? Im sorry, but that is the wrong answer to tell your customers who pay quite a bit to stay in your not very attractive RV park. The people who run this place really don't care if anyone steals your stuff. I didn't even get an I'm sorry that happened to you.
This place is not your typical RV park. There are long term residents, its across the street from a family dollar. Its near Busch Gardens and a lot of businesses. Thats about the only thing it has going for it. The bathrooms are ok, however the stall doors are right in your face when you sit down. The laundry room is located in between the bathrooms. 2 out of 4 washers don't work and 2 of 3 dryers do work. There's no pool either. They also charge for electric.
I will never ever stay here again. If you decide to stay, its def going to be at your own risk and don't have any expectations. - Ellie Q

Camp Nebraska is now called Tampa RV Park. There may be new owners/managers from the ones mentioned in older posts - the people we met were friendly and helpful. This is a good option if you want a campground IN Tampa. It is convenient to Bush Gardens, USF, I-275 and Downtown. It is in an area of town that has old businesses (including some strip clubs and tattoo parlors), but the park itself was quiet with not much traffic coming through it. I never felt unsafe there. There ARE some campers that are rented out as residences, and others who are there for the winter, but they have temporary guests as well, including some good size, newer RVs. The park is old, and the sites are fairly narrow - not much outdoor space, especially if you have slide-outs. There are concrete pads but the one on our site wasn't in a convenient place so we didn't use it. The restrooms don't have the best design, but were clean. 2 toilets, 2 showers, one dressing room and sink. The men's room had some plumbing issues, but they were working to correct that. They were having problems with the Wifi, but worked hard to get it working - it was better, but still sporadic. Tampa RV Park is NOT a resort!, but it was a very convenient place to stay, and we would stay there again. - TN Gator

The rate reflects a monthly rate plus electric at a rate of .1188 per kwh for electricity. This is a very nice park. The sites are very tight to get into. It took us several maneuvers back and forth to fit our 36' trailer into the spot. The streets are very narrow. Everyone is very friendly and many are in the park for the winter or live there in park models. There are many activities planned during the month. - krisbw

The park has outstanding laundry facilities, a billiard room with 5 tables, large pool, card room, library, and a huge rec room. There are numerous activities every day and since many of the folks who are there are french Canadian many of the activities are offered on alternating nights in either English or French. The management was terrific, the people living there were incredibly nice, and it was exceptionally clean and well maintained. I would absolutely recommend it for long stays since it is centrally located in the Clearwater/St. Pete area. - Lee and Trace

We stayed here for about 2 months, arriving in August, departing in October. We had a changing schedule, and paid a monthly rate, as well as weekly. The monthly rate was off season, and was very reasonable. Electricity on the monthly rate is extra, on the weekly rates it is included.
The park is very conveniently located to Tampa. You are about 10 miles to the airport, 15 miles to downtown, 20 miles to USF. It is conveniently located to other cities in the greater Bay Area as well. It is located a block off go Hillsborough Avenue, a main thoroughfare, on a quiet, mostly residential street. Shopping, gas, Walmart, Public, and many restaurants are less than 2-3 miles away.
The park was very clean and well managed. The pool was always sparkling clean and inviting. We don't use the showers or the laundry. The park is covered about 70% with oak trees, providing shade. The spots are wide and easy to back into.
The park guests are a mixture of overnighters, longtermers, and semi permanent. Everyone gets along well. The park management tries to group the longtermers, and the various types of groups together. The campsites are kept clean and organized, or management will correct it. The were no eye sore campsites at all.
Having stayed at several dozen RV parks and campsites in the past year, Bay Bayou definitely ranks near the top. - Tom 69

Most sites are on level gravel with cement patios. Some are on level grass. Ours was on grass, but it was good, with more space than the gravel sites. (We were told the grass sites are being redone this year.) WIFI is very good most of the time. Staff is nice; most are very helpful. Most sites have cable; ours didn't but there are a lot of local stations so television was no problem. Water is on two sides of the park; there are lovely docks for wine sipping but keep bug spray handy. Sites at the far end of the park are across the water from a busy road. That would be noisy, so if quiet is important, request something away from the far end of the park. If traveling during "snow bird" season, book ahead, although we saw various openings for possible short stays. Laundry is good; pool is heated. No hot tub. No pull-throughs. Really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.
They have work campers who have mechanical, plumbing, etc. expertise who are available to assist with problems (for a price). We were so grateful to have this, as we had a plumbing problem and the person was wonderful at helping us resolve it!
Price listed is daily rate. Monthly rate is less; that's what we paid. - DrM Traveler
Jan 2016 - $45.00
Nice Park. Sites are gravel and level. Site size is above average. Most or all sites are among trees. Satellite usage is not possible but they have good cable. WIFI was excellent for a park of this size. Very friendly staff. They have a very active social community. I would stay here again. - wgh52
