Central Florida Fish Camps
Central Florida fish camps are usually on the lakes and rivers that are the most prominent features of this land locked region of the state. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of lakes ranging from small ponds to major chains of lakes like the Harris Chain in Lake County and the Winter Haven chain of lakes.
Many of the lakes in Central Florida are spring fed and most of them are loaded with fish. Some fish camps have lodging, others are just great places to launch your boat or rent one of theirs and get out on the water.

Palm Gardens Restaurant and Marina
1661 Palm Garden Street
Palm Gardens is on the Dead River that connects Lake Harris to Lake Eustis in Tavares. It is a fish camp, a marina and has a small restaurant. It has an Old Florida atmosphere that is becoming increasingly rare in Central Florida.
As the name implies, there are plenty of tall palms on the property and a nice deck with shady umbrellas to sit and enjoy a meal or a beer and watch the boat traffic go slowly by on the river.
Palm Gardens has RV lots for rent, an adjacent public boat ramp, bait and tackle for sale and they rent boats. They also sell fuel and have a store with plenty of beer, soft drinks, bottled water and various snacks.
The restaurant has quite a local following with their Wednesday "Steak Nights" and they also serve breakfast and lunch. On hot days you can dine inside in their air conditioned Riverview Room.
