We had an incredible time during our recent multi-day camping trip at Fisheating Creek Outpost in Palmdale, FL. It was a bit of a homecoming for me as I had visited this campsite several times when I was younger. Much has changed since then, including updated camping sites and a new dock for fishing and docking your boat.
The campground was well-maintained and easily accessible, with friendly staff who made our stay comfortable. Whether you prefer camping in a camper or a primitive site, this outpost has options for everyone. The recent upgrades have made the campground even better than before.
The camper sites are impressive, all with full hookups that include electric (30 & 50 amp), water and sewer. Meanwhile, the primitive sites are equally fantastic, with water available close to all the sites.
Beyond the great camping experience, Fisheating Creek Outpost offers a variety of amenities. Renting canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards is an excellent way to enjoy the water, with swimming allowed in the creek (just keep an eye out for alligators). The camp store has everything you need, including emergency equipment, camping food, some comfort foods, and fishing supplies. There are also two bathhouses with modern showers and a laundry facility available, making it easy to stay clean and refreshed.
For nature enthusiasts, the area around the campground is perfect. There’s plenty of hiking to enjoy, with opportunities to see a range of wildlife and birds, including eagles, crested caracaras, Florida scrub-jays, and wild turkeys. The park is part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, ensuring that there’s always something amazing to see.
The best time to visit is early in the morning when it’s the quietest and the wildlife is more active. The cypress swamps and forests that surround the camp are home to deer and wild boar, making for an unforgettable experience.
