When you are driving east on State Road 520 after leaving Orlando or the Beachline Expressway (State Road 528), you will go through many miles of Old Florida wilderness on your way to Cocoa.
This quiet stretch of highway is a refreshing change from the giant growth and sprawl of most of the state.
It is always comforting when you reach the St. Johns River to see the weathered wooden building still resting among a clump of palmetto trees.
Lone Cabbage Fish Camp is one of those few places that haven't changed much in the many years it has been around. It has not been replaced by a high rise condominium or a modern marina.
It's not really a fish camp anymore, but a relaxing casual waterfront restaurant.
This very casual place serves Old Florida favorites like Gator Tail, frog legs, turtle, and catfish cooked the way you like them.
You can also get clam strips, shrimp, cod, fish tacos, fried chicken, chicken tenders and wings.
They also have a great selection of soups, sandwiches, salads, and more. You will like their bacon cheeseburger, chili cheeseburger, fish Reuben, and grilled cheese.
You can top it all off with their Peanut Butter Pie.
Every Sunday the camp has their "World Famous Fish Fry" with fried catfish served with hushpuppies, beans, and cole slaw. They also have great sweet tea.
The restaurant features a 300 foot long wooden dock on the river, and there are airboats there that you can pay to ride on. You can also bring your own boat
Plenty of parking is provided on the camp property, and there are also public boat ramps on both sides of State Road 520.
