Fisheating Creek Outpost


UPDATE (Nov. 13, 2017) --Fisheating Creek Outpost is open. Tent and RV sites became available on Nov. 1.

Due to the volume of calls after re-opening, we ask that you contact us by email at Include your arrival date, number of nights, whether you are camping or bringing an RV, and a phone number.

Hourly kayak and canoe rentals will also be available at Paddling Adventures now. The livery service will re-open in the near future.

A couple of things to  note that if you are planning on staying with us:  We will NOT have any retail items available for sale, including ice. Our Camp store suffered quite a bit of damage during the storm and we are operating out of a temporary location.  We WILL have firewood for sale. Also, we do not have washers and dryers on site.

We're excited to welcome you back to Fisheating Creek Outpost. It's been a massive effort to clean-up after Hurricane Irma. We'd like to thank everyone who came out on Oct. 14 to help with our clean-up day. We are so thankful for you and appreciate the spirit and volunteerism in our outdoor community.

Welcome to Fisheating Creek Outpost. We're glad you stopped by. Fisheating Creek Outpost offers camping, paddling, hiking and eco-adventures along one of the most pristine creeks in Florida. We're based near the small town of Palmdale, just west of Lake Okeechobee and north of the Everglades.

We're the perfect place to get up-close to nature. Paddling the cypress swamps or hiking our hardwood forests you can see alligators, turtles, deer, wild boar, turkey, wading birds, raptors, an occasional black bear and more. You can strike out in your own canoe or kayak or rent one of ours.

Campers can choose from any of our wonderfully shaded tent or RV campsites. Most of our RV sites have full hookups including 30 and 50 amp electric, water and sewer.
