1 Park near Tierra Verde, Florida
May 2015 - $40.00
Absolutely love this place! We've stayed numerous times with heavily wooded sites right on the water. You always see lots of bird, and on a few occasions, we've had dolphins playing just a bit out from our campsite. Most sites are separated by pretty thick trees that provide decent privacy.
The park has one of the top 10 rated beaches in the U.S., which is probably a mile long with no buildings. It is only 10 minutes from St. Pete Beach, which is full of restaurants, touristy junk stores, ice cream shops and a decent grocery store.
You can fish from the seawall right in the campgrounds. There's also a small playground for kids. - Denny Johnson

This park is my happy place. Large shaded sites with brush barriers in between each site. Mostly level. Water pressure is good. You can fish and boat at the back of the waterfront sites. It's about a mile to the swimming beaches. There is a dog park/dog beach a mile away. This park is very hard to get a reservation for a waterside site. You have to be diligent and computer savvy to get a good one. Reservations are taken 6 months out. There are some pull throughs available. Some of the sites are incredibly tight and require some interesting backing to get into with a long 5th wheel but we managed it. There is a great store in the campground with scoop ice cream that made afternoon snack bike rides a must. They sell bait, sundries, and fishing supplies. There are great trails, good bike trails, and an excellent boat launch area. The beaches are filled with sea shells. The ocean is about waist deep for quite a while. You can rent kayaks from the campground or have a local company deliver/pickup right to your site. We saw dolphins and manatees from our campsite. You can rent a fire ring or bring your own. There is firewood for sale. People are very friendly and weekends are super busy and sometimes loud from family get togethers and late night camp fires. If there was on onsite host we never saw them nor were they identified. The bathrooms were kind of clean and had great water pressure. There doesn't seem to be any paid staff as everyone we saw had "volunteer" on the back of their shirts. Some days the bathrooms didn't get cleaned. As it's Florida there are always lizards and bugs in the bathrooms because the bathrooms aren't closed up. This is the most beautiful park I have ever stayed in. - michellewelch

I am giving this park a 10 for location, location, location. It is a county park that is very difficult to make reservations for during the season. They are booked solid and the recommendation is to try reserving a space as much as 9-10 months ahead of your visit. The park has canal front and gulf front sites and pull-throughs in the center. All sites have water and 50A but no sewer. All sites are very private. Getting to and into the sites is an adventure when you travel in a 45ft RV towing a trailer. We had been assigned a 125 feet pull-through site to avoid having to unhook the trailer and the site was more than adequate for our length. But, the road to the sites is narrow and the entrance into the sites are very narrow, too. I miss judged the turning angle and got stuck between 2 trees with only a couple of inches to spare. It took about 30 minutes of inches forwards and backwards to get out of this predicament. But the beauty and silence and the dark night skies compensated for all this trouble. We visited during the off season and had no reservation for the 2 nights we wanted to stay here. Not a problem. But, depending on what you drive, do yourself a favor and walk the sites before you commit yourself. We highly recommend this park and would return here. Next time we will heed our own advice for sure. - Olivia Las Vegas
