Best Park, Ever!
Can’t say enough good about this park, accessible beaches and bike paths. Sites are DEEP, WIDE, BEAUTIFUL, and SPACED from neighbor sites. This park is in high demand and requires 6 month advance reservation for non-residents. Pull through sites are at least 150’ long.

This park is my personal favorite for camping and fishing. The Huge sites in the pet friendly section are gorgeous wither the white crushed shell base surrounded by palm trees and other lush tropical vegetation.
Pick a site on the water where you can throw in a line or just watch the countless mullet leap into the air either in pursuit of dinner or escaping the jaws of a larger predator.
Very peaceful campsites with a constant ocean breeze. Clean bathhouses are conveniently located and include laundry equipment.
Bring a bicycle to take advantage of the miles of trails connecting every part of the park including fishing piers and beach.
Proximity to Gulf Boulevard and all of the restaurants, shopping and beaches makes Desoto a perfect respite from the busier attractions in St. Pete and Clearwater.

This place is really nice. It has beautiful views and the beach is close by but you still have to take your car.

Hermoso paisaje, cerca de un buen muelle para pescar y todas las comunidades para RV. Muy recomendable.

Our Favorite So Far!
This campground is a great hidden gem. Well maybe not totally hidden since it does book up a lot, but it's a county park so maybe overlooked sometimes. But that's better for you!! It is surrounded with ocean views from most of the sites, with paved bike or walking/running trails to many more beaches including a specific dog beach just down the road. The sites are huge and pretty private with trees and palms in between each one and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers are super clean and nice. Water and electric hook ups only, have to use dump station in park. Really affordable for Florida in December especially so close to St. Petersburg. Kayak, SUP rentals available and lots of fishing right off the campground. The two loops are depressed by dog owners or no pets but both sides are beautiful. Museums, restaurants and shops not too far away in st. Pete's, but the campground feels like an isolated beach island. I can't say enough how much we love this spot!

Liked this campground
We were lucky to come across some cancelations to be able to get to this campground. Unfortunately for us it was in the dog loop and our neighbors dogs barked from the moment they left till they got back many hours later. If you booked a nice site with a waterfront view I bet it would be a fantastic stay. The bike rentals closest to the campground are a bit steep for being charged by the hour when riding around the island takes quite some time. But the camps were spacious and the bathrooms relatively clean. I am excited to return in the summer time with a nicer site.
