Southeast Florida Fish Camps

Southeast Florida fish camps are on Lake Okeechobee and at various spots in the Florida Keys.  The ever increasing value of waterfront property in this Gold Coast area of Florida has turned many old fish camps into high rise condominiums or trendy waterfront restaurants.

A few still remain, and some of them offer rustic lodging in the authentic Old Florida style.  Others are great places to fish.  There is something for everybody in Southeast Florida.

Here Are Some Southeast Florida Fish Camps

Jensen Beach is a small community on the west bank of the Indian River Lagoon that separates Hutchinson Island, a barrier island, from the Atlantic Ocean. This is salt water country, and a great location for one of the most unusual Florida fish camps.

Even though River Palm Cottages & Fish Camp is a fish camp, only about 15% of their guests are fishermen. More than twenty Key West style guest quarters are scattered among 7.2 acres of lush tropical plants. The cottages are extremely quiet.

River Palm has a 4.0 out of 5.0 TripAdvisor rating.
