Pinellas County, Florida, Park & Conservation Resources - Fort De Soto Park (http://www.pinellascounty.org/park/05_ft_desoto.htm)
This campground is fantastic. Very clean and very well maintained. Fishing opportunities abound. The campsites on the outer area 1 and 3 are on a big flat with ample wade fishing while the rest are are on deeper water for shore fishing. There are 2 piers, 1 gulfside and 1 bayside with great fishing as well. This park is within an hour drive of Busch Gardens and Lowry Zoo if vacationing. There is a very large beach and a fort to explore inside the park as well. Several sites wold allow you to dock your boat at the campsite. There is a boatramp a short drive inside the park from the campsites as well. You really need to plan well in advance to book here as Pinellas county residents can book 6 months out and everyone else 5 months out and it is very popular.
