We loved staying in this Campground in February of 2018. We enjoyed tremendously being right on the bay and being able to kayak in the bay. I fished from my kayak and even was visited by a manatee. Yes this is a tight Campground for huge RVs. We saw a few having trouble backing in. But the key is to research the site you reserve and pay attention to the dimensions listed for each site. So much to do in the local area including the dog beach, the fort site and just great eating in St Pete Beach. Staff was very helpful and restrooms, though old and dated, were kept very clean. We were not far from a bathhouse. Mangroves lined shore (not a big sandy beach, mind you) where we sat on waterside in lawn chairs and watched wildlife. View from some sites wide open, some obscured. Left kayaks tied up to limbs, never any trouble with tide. Late Feb is great time of year to come here. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Fish, kayak, hike, bike... So much to do here. Day at the beach if you want to bike or drive about 4 miles. Sit on bay shoreline if you want. PLAN for your site, yes 6 or 7 months out, by checking out the dimensions and pictures online. Pics show pretty well if site has leaning trees, etc. 10% of sites are reserved for drive ups, so you might be lucky to get an adequate site.

Location to cities-good. Raccoon infested!! Raided and broken into our tents, everything had to be ratcheted down (coolers and food containers), unzipped our tents and came inside at 3am! Asked about other sites and were told they were all booked (which they were not). No fire ring for a campfire. Two of the washers in the tent section were full of dirty, smelly water, need to have individual showers with dressing rooms - not communal! Park rangers were rude- had to move our tents onto gravel when we had our tents on NO foliage and on dirt to the side of gravel driveway - or we would have been fined. (Given 45 minutes to move the tents and all our gear). We will not camp there again and do not recommend this park for any tent campers. The restrooms were clean as were the showers, but the coons ruined our trip as we had no idea what would happen every time we left the camp or when we went to bed. They need to fix the females and stop the reproduction - there were 3 families each with 3 to 4 babies.... and they perused the camp morning and night. Afternoons, they appeared to be less visible - probably preparing for the nightly raids. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Tent.

Getting to places to do things was great - but the campground for tent camping I would NOT recommend. They need a lot of clearing and cleanup to be done, showers are communal, the park staff are not informative of the animal infestation or seem to care. The raccoons are not afraid of humans and love to unzip tents and come inside in the middle of the night!!

We stayed in site 135 for 7 nights. The only good thing about the park is that it is on Mullet Bay which allows you to kayak whenever you would like. The park is so overgrown that you cannot get to your site without hitting tree branches. Many sites have tree trunks leaning into the site that will keep you from opening up your slides. The are numerous tree trunks with reflectors on them but they should just cut the stump down instead. We had a motorhome in front of us get wedged between two trees trying to get into his site. They had to cut one of the trees down but this was only after he scraped the entire side of his motorhome. We had some people tent camping with us and the bathrooms were terrible to use. No privacy in all but one shower area. The washers and dryers did not work but in one area that was not the tent area so they had to walk across the park to shower and wash clothes. There is no water hookup to flush your black tank that you have to use because there is no sewer. This park needs a good overhaul with cleaning up dead and overgrown vegetation and cleaning up some of the trees and make it impossible to get into some of the sites. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

So much to do within a very short distance. This area of St.Petersburg and its usually awesome year-round weather offers so much to do, it is a Triathletes and Sportsmans paradise, swimming, cycling, running, kayaking, fishing, restaurants, and great nightlife all with a few miles of Ft. DeSoto Campground.

It a short bike ride over to the beach (all paved trail no cars or tolls) we found a super big beachfront dog park, where dogs can play and swim. A little past the dog park is the Fort that guarded Tampa Bay, super cool to explore. North of the fort is one of Florida most pristine beaches it is so beautiful, the waters in the Gulf of Mexico are crystal clear and typically calm making it super nice to swim in. Make sure you stay for the sunset the colors across the water are spectacular.

This is about our 5th stay at this campground and we really like it. The roads and sites are dirt and there is a lot of vegetation between sites. The sites are water and electric only and there are 2 dump stations. The restrooms and showers were clean and nice. We really like the waterfront sites. Some have a sea wall and some have a sandy beach with water access so if you have a kayak or canoe, you can launch it right from your site. They have nice bike trails throughout the park. The beaches are beautiful but you have to bike or drive--not close enough to walk. They do have some low hanging branches and some tight turns to watch for. There are some tolls to get to the campground. The raccoons come out at night so don't leave food out overnight. Our cell service was spotty but they have wifi at the camp office and store. Biking, birdwatching, beach walking, fishing and kayaking are the main things to do here. Most everything else requires leaving the island. We will definitely be back. The Campground does hold back about 10% of the campsites and releases them every Friday morning at 7am for that week. That is how we got our site. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

In the winter time, it's a great place to do some birding and you see lots of ospreys. The Fort and small museum are good places to explore. There is a nice fishing pier. The ferry to Egmont Key was a nice day trip. We went to downtown St. Petersburg to the Dali Museum--very nice. The Gulf Beaches Historical Museum on Pass-A Grille is an interesting small museum and it's free.

This is our favorite campground. The only complaint we have is their reservation system. It is on-line and antiquated. It results in lots of vacant lots yet they are booked full 6 months in advance. It is next to impossible to get a reservation during peak season unless you are a Florida resident. That is fair but lots of campers manage to cheat the system by using multiple names (and local Florida resident's names and addresses) to get around the 2 week limit. Sewer hookups would be great but we understand this is a state park and this is not possible. We love the dog beach and the lush, tropical campsites. You feel like you are in the middle of a desert island but town is close if you want to shop, resupply or dine. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

I was disappointed with this park. First off all, it is NOT a great place for a large RV. Yes, it's manageable to maneuver through the park but you have to be very careful not to scratch your RV. The roads are narrow with low hanging limbs. Trees hang out into the sand road and the road is NOT straight. Our spot was 112. We had to put the slideout between two trees while hugging them to avoid a low hanging branch on the opposite side. Our second site (157) was hard to get into as the site was on a corner and turned the wrong direction for the curve. The roads have right turns and you have to avoid trees and trash cans. The roads are all one way so you have to leave the park and come back in if you want to go to the office. We had very little cell signal. There is no sewer anywhere. The utilities were placed ok. It was nice to drive down to the beaches, but driving to town and back will cost you a toll fee every time. The hosts were pleasant and dedicated to keeping the park nice but I expected much more from this CG based on everyone's reviews. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

Everything everyone said and more. The dog loop is great because you are surrounded by dog people, you don't have worry about someone getting in a snit because your dog is acting like an animal. Plus, this is the only off-leash dog beach we have encountered. The showers are reasonably clean with scalding hot water and plenty of pressure - what a luxury! Could not get a consistent ATT&T signal at our site but our T-mobile hot spot worked well. The wifi at the camp office is good, too. We really appreciated access to a bike path without having to drive to it. You can go for miles, to the beaches or toward town. In the campground pet loop, your site does NOT extend all the way to the seawall. There is a walking path between the sites and the seawall, nice for meeting people. Also, people in off-water sites come out to the seawall to watch the sunset. The site surface is dirt/crushed shells but is was not dusty. The variety of birds here is phenomenal, and lots of fish jumping in the lagoon. There is vegetation along the seawall in spots that is not shown on the map, sites 101, 111 to 115. Sites 138 to 153(?) have vegetation along the shore but it looked like every site had a path through to the water. There is a small creek (or ditch) between the off-water sites and the road, at least north of bathhouse 3. Our arrival was delayed one day and they were very quick to respond to my email, authorizing a refund (less $5). We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is very easy to get to, interstate through Tampa and St. Petersburg then the Bayway. There are tolls out to the park but no tolls on the way back to town. You can buy a SunPass mini-transponder at Publix, CVS, etc. but it's probably not worth it unless you are going back and forth a lot.

We liked this park a lot. Great water views, great biking, nice beaches - what more can you ask for? Price was high for not having sewer. If you can swing it, a water view is worth it. And their reservation website is extremely frustrating. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

First off this Florida where anything that walks, crawls, slithers, scoots or does not move at all will likely poke, bite sting or prick you. Usually with an outcome that has pain, irritation or hospitalization. That being said this a wonderful park with plenty to do. The basics first, the electric and water are conveniently located and easy to hook up. We have a 42 gallon waste water tank that we use for grey water only. It can be towed behind a vehicle for easy hauling to the dump stations. The park rangers are more then accommodating as we were only schedule to stay a few days but wanted to extend it to a full week. The ranger looked through all the sites and found a couple of sites that he held while we drove to each one to see which one we liked the best. We were able to move right then instead of delaying the site move. There are 2 fishing piers with bait stores and snack bars with the usually hamburgers, hot dogs and such . They however , are only open 8-4 pm when we were there. There are kayaks to rent out in the main park but it was closed during our stay in Oct. I figured they would be open. The camp store itself does rentals also and is well stocked. Fort Desoto in a great little tour you can take yourself. Edgemont Key is a short boat ride away and well worth the trip. We have AT&T cell with a weak signal at the first site and no signal at the second site. Before we left I paid $19.99 for the Sunpass toll booth easy pass. Though it is only good for Florida, we vacation here often so we will probably use it again. Even if we don't it was worth the money to drive straight through the tolls without waiting for people fumbling for money to pay. The trees do have low hanging branches and getting into sites can tricky but the trade off is some seclusion from your neighbors. All in a great place to camp.

Geocaching is a great way to see Tarpon Springs and don't miss the Sponge Diving. Sunken Gardens is beautiful and not far from the Virtual cache GC5C38 Down By The Banyan Tree. For some quick caches and sight seeing hit the Courtney Campbell Soup Run series. Six miles across Old Tampa Bay on Route 60 which you can drive park to quickly finish it off.

I stayed here for 4 days (03/07/2016 - 03/11/2016) in site 112. This park is very popular for a good reason. Its location is right on the calm crystal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There's shopping about 5 miles up the road for grocery necessities etc. The sites themselves are water and non water locations. If you can, do your best to get a water site, those are superb. I'd also caution you to watch out for the sites right on the water towers. Those are really the only bad spots simply because you have this obnoxiously huge water tower right behind you. Accessing the campground was easy but there are very low hanging trees here and if you don't pay attention you could have issues backing in. The campground was quiet and fairly private. There is vegetation separating the spots but not enough to make them 100% private. Here's a tip, since everything fills up and this place is booked WAY in advance, they have hold back sites which are released every Friday morning @ 7am EST for the upcoming Friday to Friday week. That was the only way I could get a reservation in mid March but I logged in on Friday at 7am and had no problems. The cell signal for ATT was 1-2 bars w/out a booster. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife and I first camped here 45 years ago and the first picture ever taken of us as a couple was taken at the fort. This was our first return to the park after 45 years and we duplicated that first picture. We really enjoyed the park and campground. It was neat and clean. We stayed in the pet area and our dog enjoyed the large dog park and beach. The North Beach is incredibly beautiful, as it was 45 years ago. The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites have vegetation on the sides that give a bit of privacy. Most of the sites are fairly roomy, too.

Our site had, besides water and 20/30/50 amp power, a picnic table and a charcoal grill. We took our own fire pit, but they also rent them at the store. Since it was 90+ degrees we did not have a fire, though. Not at the site, but they have two dump stations. The road area next to the dump stations had standing water at both stations.

We highly recommend this park and look forward to going back again. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you aren't using the dog beach, use the more beautiful North Beach, although the East Beach is way less crowded. The nearest Publix grocery store is over six miles away and requires paying a toll to get back to the campground, so you may want to have enough stuff with you.

We normally prefer camping in our motorhome but occasionally like to go rustic in a tent. In all of Pinellas County this is the place I would recommend most highly for tent camping. Very clean grounds and very friendly staff. A good experience with plenty to occupy your time. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Tent.
