We stayed here at this county park for an overnight in January and for 3 weeks in March. The manager gentleman was extremely helpful to us. There are only a few 50 amp sites. We thought we'd be fine with 30 amps but during the first overnight we realized that we weren't going to be able to use the microwave at the same time as the satellite tv, for example. Since we had reserved another 3 weeks, we were a little concerned. We mentioned it to the manager and he said there was a Y-plug splitter that would plug into both 30 amp outlets on the electric pole, theoretically giving us 60 amps of power. We bought the Y-plug and we had full use of all of the electrical components in our coach. That tip was a life saver. Thanks!

The park was quiet and it was a plus to watch the boats traverse the river beside the campground and then go through the lock which is operated by the Corps of Engineers. Great COE campground there as well.

The showers and bathrooms were clean and were never busy. Two small negatives: no sewer hookup and only one washer and dryer in the laundry room. The manager takes good care of the park and he does a fine job with security in the park. We will happily return here when in the area. We camped at Phipps Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Riverwalk in downtown Stuart is a lovely place to walk. There's a farmer's market and live music on Saturday mornings.

This is a beautiful county park that is not well-marked but worth coming to. It's close to I-95 but far enough away that noise is minimal. There are some sites with water and 30 amp electric but far more dry sites. The nicest sites, which are on the bank above the river, have the hookups but dumping is at the dump station. The grass was all well mowed, the park was extremely clean and there is lots of open space between the sites. I would have rated this park at an 8 or 9 if the check-in was better. There is no one at the check-in station but there is a sign giving you a number to call if it's before 5PM. I called before 5PM but got a recording telling me to go to the website. Okay, went to the website. Had to register in the website (name, address, etc.) then attempt to register for the site. It is IMPOSSIBLE to register. The site I was in (6) didn't even appear on the site map. I tried all different combinations and never registered. Finally sent an irate email to the "contact us" icon. Nothing. Later the park manager arrived and accused of not paying but later apologized after he saw I tried to register. He stated the website had been broken for 8 years and all his staff (volunteers) had been let-go by the county. I will stay here again but with the knowledge that the check-in will be difficult. We camped at Phipps Park Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park, along a river, with lots of palm trees. Most of the trees do not provide much shade for campers (location #1 is best for shade). Lots of lush, green grass. There were few other campers here, and I liked the privacy! I went for long, scenic walks with the dogs, with nobody worrying about if I picked up after my dogs! There is a very clean bath house with clean restrooms. In the same building is a laundry mat. There are lots of through the air TV channels. There is no WiFi (my hotspot works fine), and there are plenty of mosquitoes at night, but a little spray solved that. The management is very friendly, but firm about dogs being on a leash. They are watchful, and noticed that my water hose was leaking. They do a good job of maintaining the grounds. There are lots of picnic tables and a playground for kids. I will definitely return if I get a chance. We camped at Phipps Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is basically a large grassy area with little to no shade. Two sites share power/water poles, so you are close to your one neighbor. But, nice spacing between each shared area. The sites are "waterfront", but you can't see the water or the boats cruising by due to a steep embankment. You can sit or stand on the embankment and view the water and boats. The embankment is not mowed and some of the growth is quite high. There is a picnic table and fire ring at each site, but at the even numbered sites the table and fire ring are on the "wrong side". If you can pull in vs. backing in, then they would be on the "right" side. Bathhouse was fairly clean and well stocked. Dressing area was large with a long bench, but afforded little privacy. No soap holder in shower area. Mostly quiet. You can hear and see the Turnpike from the campground, but it's not bad. The campground is very near the FL Turnpike and I-95, so it is a good park for a stopover. We camped at Phipps Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Phipps Park is managed by the Martin County Parks and Recreation Department. And making a reservation was a little tough until I got the phone number. It is located along the Okeechobee waterway and has a 55 acres of conservation land and campgrounds. This was a true gem of a find. I rated it a 9 because it had no sewer hookups. However, it does have a free dump station on site. Tons of trails and a very nice family friendly quiet park. If you are a partying loud person this is not the place for you. Lots of shade available. Pet walks and nature trails on site. Almost every site has a water view. Lakes on one side and Okeechobee on the other. Every site has a fire ring and picnic table. You wont be disappointed. We camped at Phipps Park Campground in a Motorhome.
