I live in Clearwater and camp here often. Beautiful grounds. Very nice bath/shower facilities. Around the corner from the best beach in the Tampa Bay area. Office staff is very friendly. After purchasing my first travel trailer last year, I have been looking for other campgrounds to check out. I have found no others that compare. Ft DeSoto is the...

The fort is interesting with cannons from the past., The gift shop has food and a wide variety of clothing for sale. We also enjoyed the white sandy beach. They have chairs and umbrella rentals if you need them. The bathrooms were clean and convenient.

This campground is wonderful. Already have reservations for our 2nd trip. Wonderful kayaking, beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Clean bath houses. It's so nice that they separate the RVS and tents. We go to get away from our busy lives and don't want to hear tv, generators and air conditioners next to us. They also have a seperate pet friendly area....

This was a great place to camp w the kids!!! So much fun! Tent Campsites were freshly raked and clean. The restrooms appeared to be washed down regularly, and although nothing fancy, they were clean. There are tons of raccoons, so definitely keep all food in your car. The beaches were beautiful.

This was our first trip to Fort De Soto and let me tell you that pictures just do not do this place justice. It is absolutely jaw dropping beautiful! Our campsite was fairly large and we had no problem setting up. There are gecko's every where which was great. My only recommendation is to bring bug spray as our family...

My family and three others have been camping at Ft De Soto campground on presidents weekend for the last three years. The volunteers that keep this place preserved and beautiful are what makes this place so special. The grounds are clean. I don't ever see trash anywhere The view is fantastic. With camping at the site you get a ticket...

Beautiful park to camp in. So much to do and such a clean and well attended campground. We went for Christmas and it was such fun seeing all the different lights in the campsites. Kayaking off our campsite was just amazing! Beautiful sunsets! Seeing the dolphins jumping was also a special treat. We had 2 adjoining site right on the...

I'm not a HUGE fan of camping and this seemed to have the best of both worlds. Two families went and we shared a tent site. We brought the kids bikes and I highly recommend doing that - lots of trails and wide open areas to explore. There's also a playground and nice little beaches to play in along the...

We were visiting Orlando for the Christmas break and wanted a beach experience. We were wavering between St. Petes and Cocoa. St Pete's seemed to have much higher ratings but the drive seemed to be the kicker. From our VRBO is seemed like it was only about 30 more minutes to St Pete's so off we went. The first day...
