Peace River Camping?

Recommended Posts

Homeschool Mom

Hello All, 

I would like to take a group of families camping somewhere along the Peace River  in Florida to hunt fossils. Does anyone have a suggestion for a campground, or even just a great spot for finding fossils? We don't necessarily need to camp.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Google Ginnie Springs Campground.

Certainly not Ginnie on the Sante Fe river?

There are several campgrounds on the Peace River, but anywhere close by them, the river is no longer productive. If you can camp and then kayak, you'll be better off. Zolfo Springs, Wauchula and arcadia are all locations to google campgrounds.

On my trip to the Florida last year I stayed at the Peace River RV & Camping Resort in Wauchula, at that campground there's river access and I went fossil hunting only about 1,000 feet from my cabin. It's also where I found this bird talon!

Oops!  I had a senior moment there.  Ginnie Springs is on the Santa Fe River, not the Peace.
