  4. Martha Tindall says:

    Is park DOG friendly with tent camping? How to make a reserve spot

  5. It is a beautiful park. Lots of beautiful trees, shades, and very spacious. The campground area is very large, the sites are huge and very comfortable. But I noticed that the park is a bit neglected in landscaping maintenance. The super tall grass seems to have not been cut for a long time, many holes in the road, millions of mosquitoes. Really a nice place, but run down. The price per day a bit expensive for the low maintenance.

  6. Carrie Gabel says:

    Can you tell me what weekend availability there is I was trying to look on the site but everything is booked.

    • Hi Carrie, doesn’t process the reservations. We provide the photos of each site, campsite availability alerts and links to the official reservation website (Pinellas County). You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation.

  7. Anthony Verhagen says:

    Do you have any pull thru sites I have 38′ Class A and I tow a car on a tow dolly 58′ overall

    • Hi Anthony,
      Yes, Fort De Soto Park has pull-through campsites. Most are quite large and should fit your Class A and tow car. You can click on the ‘Campground Map’ button to see which sites are pull-through. Also click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, campsite size, pricing and make a reservation.
