At Myakka River State Park, all sites come with 50-amp/water hook-ups, a fire ring, and picnic table. So, what makes Big Flats Campground special? World’s. Largest. Airboats. Need we say more? Big Flats is located near the Upper Myakka Lake where you can take a tour on big azz boats, cast from a fishing deck, or connect with the outside world with WiFi. Like Old Prairie Campground, Big Flats is also dirt-based, and like all other sites in the park, your furry friend is welcome to join in on the fun!

Quiet, shaded campground. Handicap accessible, paved campsites, restrooms and showers. Camp store has grill with good burgers and craft beer on tap but not any real camp provisions. Hike about 6 miles round trip to Deep Hole to in beautiful wilderness area and watch alligators as close as you dare :) Get permit at Ranger station to enter wilderness area. Boat ride on river is completely handicap accessible. View huge alligators closeup from comfort of boat sunning on shore, learn about their habits and biology. Suspension bridge climb is also awesome but requires strong knees!

Tent area is fairly small but scenic, and across from open area with RV's. 1/2 mile from bike and kayak rentals and camp store.
