The Fort DeSoto Park Campground is beautiful. The description says all sites are private, which is absolutely true. We stayed for 5 days in early February, the first of several stops in a month long RV trip in Florida. Fort DeSoto is the perfect place...More

I would not attempt it with a child. Between winds picking up suddenly that can cause rough waves, and some very strong tidal currents, it is not advisable or safe. I have kayaked from the campground over to Shell Key many times, and am a very experienced kayaker, and I have struggled against strong tidal currents and winds. We have had several deaths in the channel from inexperienced swimmers drowning due to the strong currents and people getting caught in high waves and overturning when the winds kick up. Not worth the risk.
