Three Lakes (Sun Resort) in Hudson ...a bit north is a very nice RV centered park and close to everything you might need. I haven't found anything nicer north of Clearwater. We had a great time at JaMar NORTH...but that is more of a residential park. Good luck!

We live in the area and agree that Fort Desoto would be our choice. It's really spectacular UNLESS you want something like a KOA (not our cup of tea). The KOA in Bay Pines (near the V.A. hospital) is a typical KOA Resort.

Madeira Beach KOA is pretty nice and some of the sites are on the bayou and they have a pool. Closer to Clearwater than Ft Desoto.

Check this link. I know 216-221 on west side of park you can swim, it also has a beach for kids to play around in ,no current only about a foot deep, plus the showers are right across the pathway.

We have been to Ft. DeSoto, it is in St. Petersburg, FL. It is a fabulous park, it is a County Park, Pinellas County. You can camp right on the water, but there are no swimming signs all over the place. You could put a kayak or canoe in there, but not swimming. We would drive down to the "proper" swimming beach every day, it will be free for you - and well worth it!!

Have been trying to get into Fort DeSoto ... fortunately they just implemented a change & cancellation fee policy so hopefully those Pinellas residents that would book 1 month before everyone else & then cancel last minute without penalty will stop doing that so the rest of us can get in.

Dog park on the water was full of sludge so it was tough to even wade out to fish, seawall in the non dog trailer part of the park was ok fishing but nothing to swim from. Great beach just a short drive away (or bike ride).

Wish Pinellas / Clearwater would put in some decent campgrounds ... instead we end up in Pasco, Hernando or Hillsborough last minute trips....
