There are a couple of county parks within easy reach of Tampa. E. G. Simmons in Ruskin, FL and Lithia Springs in Lithia, FL. I believe that you may get in as a "walk-in" to either one. Fort DeSoto (St. Pete) is very popular and sometimes difficult, but might be worth a shot.

Another strategy is, reserve a State Park site for one or two open nights, then, when you register at the gate, ask to shift to a walk-in site, if available. Once on a walk-in you'll probably be able to stay for 14 nights, or longer if you explain the situation to the park manager.

Try Linger Lodge

Hi Cmartin,

Try calling Linger Lodge and campground. They had a slot for our 16 Scamp as a last minute call. While not super it worked for us after we were booted out of another place that had double booked slots. We stayed 8 nights. Site was well tucked up out of the way in between some trees so quiet and shady. Full hookup and they offered weekly rates.

Office is apparently closed on Sunday.

Linger Lodge Restaurant and Campground
7205 85th St Ct East
Bradenton, FL 34202
(941) 755-2757

This is only about 45 minutes from St. Pete. We left there about 14 days ago.

We are now in Clearwater, FL. visiting friends and working on a bat project. We have our Scamp 16 parked out front on the street.

Perhaps check with local churches. They might have an area in which you could park. You might want to take proof of your situation. I am sure they have heard many stories.
