While there are 7 miles of waterfront at Fort De Soto, there are also a few different beaches you can explore! It is home to some of the best stretches of Beaches in Saint Pete and Clearwater!
We also love Battery Bigelow which is a submerged part of the fort near the fishing pier. Snorkeling chest-high out in the water, we found loads of crabs of all sorts, live sand dollars, and even a sea urchin!
Camping at Fort De Soto is super fun! It is one of the best spots for Camping In Florida and is affordable and a unique experience!
With 238 family-camping sites and a primitive youth camping area, you can easily spend the entire day searching through the waters. Then retire to your campsite for the night to relax until the morning!
