DescriptionListed in the National Register of Historic Places, Fort De Soto park is the largest park within the Pinellas County Park System. It consists of 1,136 acres made up of five interconnected islands (keys). These keys are home to beach plants, mangroves, wetlands, palm hammocks, hardwoods and scores of native plants.

At Fort De Soto Park, you could enjoy over 7 miles waterfront, a 2,200 foot barrier-free nature trail, and a 6.8 mile recreation trail.

Bring your boat along to our 800- foot boat launching facility and 11 floating docks. We also provide food and bait concession at our two fishing pier locations.

The whole family can enjoy one of our 238 family camping sites, 15 picnic shelters, two large swimming centers, and playgrounds!

If you have a family dog you would like to bring along, there is access to a dog park where dogs are allowed on the beach in designated areas.

Visit our fort in the center of the park for interesting history and facts about this beautiful historical site.
