Camp Desoto is south of St Petersburg on a island strip, a county ran park, very well maintained, friendly uniformed employees. There were not many pull through spots, and really just a few easy to get in with long rigs. Most sites have a water front view of the bay or a channel. Level, plam trees all around, seemed like a tropical paradise to me! No swimming at campground but very nice beaches very close. Paved bike and running paths at campground entrance.

Camp Desoto and Fort Desoto have a good website. No refunds for cancellations, but you can reschedule within a year (think their may some restrictions apply)

I have never heard of Camp Desoto, but I have been to Fort Desoto a few times.

One side of park allows no pets and has smaller sites, the other side of the
park allows pets and has larger sites.

The county web site for the park allows you to view the actual site you are booking. I believe county residents can book up to six months out but out of county residents have to wait up to nine months out. This usually means most
of the good sites are gone by the time I can get through.

But if you can get in this park it is fabulous. The beaches are the most beautiful I've seen in Florida. There is a Fort to tour and there is a dog
beach also for the poochies! Just a wonderful place!

I would agree Fort De Soto Park is a wonderful place. I think it may be the best CG I have ever stayed in, our site was on mullet bay so we could just slide the kayak in and go. It was our first trip in our new TH and the first time I have been in Fla. Even though it was cold we hand a great time and are looking forward to an extended stay next winter. Please be careful not to tell to may people we don't want to ruin a great place. :D
