  • Very secluded beach, not many people there, and it's pretty large. There's an old fort that's worth taking a walk through. Small gift shop with ice cream and snacks nice to stop off at. There's a boardwalk that goes out pretty far, gets really windy there though. Feels like a place forgotten by time, not in a bad way though.
  • Fort De Soto is the most wonderful Park to visit we love spending time there the campground nice. They should seriously consider Paving their roads in the campground. And hopefully revive there reservation system is terrible. It is so difficult to book a reservation but you can spend a week there and there will be sites open the entire time. Each three sections of the campground must have had well over a dozen open sights and each section but yet not available to book a site. Crazy system I'm sure they can do better. I understand people do cancel but I find it very hard to believe that many cancellations and the sites are not able to be booked for reservation
