Tent camping available year-round

Spend time with your family tent camping at Caloosahatchee Regional Park.

Nestled in an oak hammock, the campground offers one of the finest and most private tent camping experiences in Lee County. Set up your tent under the shade of sprawling live oak trees on one the 22 family camp sites or one of the six group campsites.

Explore the over 18 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails, rent a kayak or just lounge by your campfire. Portions of the hiking trails meander along the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, where you may see limpkins, ducks or even some raccoons.

Bring a fishing pole and swing your legs from the large floating dock to catch fish like mullet, catfish, largemouth bass or tilapia.

Campground amenities include restrooms with hot showers. Each site has a picnic table, grill and fire ring. Several cold water showers and spigots can also be found throughout the campground for cooking or brewing a hot cup of coffee.

Camping fees are $15 for a family site and $30 for a group site.

For more information or to register for a family site, visit online at: www.leeparks.org. Groups must register by calling the campground office (239) 694-0398.
