  1. Marcia Finney says:

    How long can you stay in months

    • Hi Marcia,
      At Lake Manatee State Park – campers can stay for up to 14 nights during high-demand periods. The Park manager may extended the stay up to an additional 14 nights if there is availability. So the maximum consecutive number of nights you can stay is 28.

  2. Sheilagh c Edwards says:

    Do any of the sites have lake access? Have a small tin boat would like to keep on the shoreline close to our campsite.

    • Hi Sheilagh,
      None of the campsites at Lake Manatee State Park are on the waterfront, but most all campsites are all within walking distance to swimming and fishing areas. Campsites 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 are closest to the lake and boat ramp (about 1/4 mile).

  3. Betty Webb says:

    I have a res. for 071 (HICK) campsite. I can not locate that site on the map that’s on your web site. Is there somewhere else I can look?
