Clearwater Florida Real Estate Agents experience Natural Florida

Camping under the Stars | Pinellas County Florida | Ft Desoto Park

My family takes a long weekend every year to go primative – well ok, to me primitive is 3 days without “real estate” and without my laptop  however, we did have electricity and running water at Ft DeSoto Park’s popular campground located in the southern most point in Pinellas County – just take Tierra Verde till it ends at the #1 Beach in the US (in 2005).

I joke about being on Survivor and my one luxury item is my hammock that can be thrown up anywhere under the canopy of cabbage palms. The good news is that we actually have 3 so we create a special hangout when we go.

Ft Desoto Park in Pinellas County offers some of the best Florida camping. You have the largest boat ramp in Pinellas county (8+ ramps) so it’s great for boating, jet skiing and fishing.

Then you have easy water access for kayaking and windsurfing and if that’s not enought the Great Florida Birding Trail runs through it so it’s great for birding and their is a fishing pier and amazing beaches.

Now if you have a dog in your life, not to worry, Ft Desoto Park has a Paw Playground and even a rare Dog Beach – the Paw Playground was voted one of the Top 10 in the US in 2006.

We saw incredible sunsets, nature up close and even the racoons think they’re family. At $30–$40/night to camp it’s a real bargain too.

It was a great time and believe it or not the world of Tampa Bay Real Estate was fine and waiting for me when I returned to it on Monday!

It’s an important reminder that we are lucky enough to call Clearwater Florida home and we need to take time to enjoy all the great things it has to offer – like eveyone else – that’s why we live in Tampa Bay – or as we like to call it ~ Paradise! 🙂
