Camping at Anclote Key Preserve State Park

Located three miles off the coast of Tarpon Springs, Anclote Key Preserve State Park is accessible only by private boat or ferry service. The 403-acre park is home to at least 43 species of birds, including the American oystercatcher, bald eagle and piping plover. A picturesque 1887 lighthouse stands as a sentinel on the southern end of the island. Visitors can swim and sunbathe at the beach, fire up a grill and enjoy a picnic, or pitch a tent and enjoy a night of primitive camping under the stars.

“Rented a pontoon boat to get there.”

Bought a Groupon for a rental of a pontoon boat. A very wonderful way to get to the Island from Tarpon Springs. Just remember you can't tent a boat without a Florida Safe Boating Certificate.
