Alcohol (beer, wine, liquor) may be consumed at your campsite. We do not sell alcoholic beverages. Please drink responsibly. Drunken behavior that disrupts the peace or endangers others will be reported to the Glades County Sheriff’s Department and/or FWC Law Enforcement.

Campfires are allowed in the fire rings. You may purchase firewood or bring your own pre-cut firewood. As Fisheating Creek is within a Wildlife Management Area, you may not take any wood or cut any trees from the campground. Do not bring chain saws to cut wood.

Yes, you may swim at your own risk. Locals have been swimming in the creek for more than 100 years. You can also sunbathe and swim at the swimming hole, located at the north end of the campground. This is an ideal location for tent campers!

There is a day-use fee for all visiting or staying at Fisheating Creek as it is both a recreational park and a campground. Fisheating Creek Outpost is under contract to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to manage the campground.
