Our RV Campsites are located in a grassy field next to dense woods. Electric and water hookups are included in the RV/Camper sites, but not the Tent Site. All sites have a picnic table. Cell phone service is not a problem, as we are not that remote (although it sort of feels like we are when you are here) - we are 5 min from downtown New Port Richey, 2 minutes from groceries, gas, restaurants. This beautiful slice of Old Florida is named for the Pithlachascotee River that bends along the back side of the property. Pithlo is the Creek word meaning canoe, and chaskita means to dig or chop out, together signifying "place where canoes are chopped or dug out". Seminoles of this area used canoes dug out from the great cypress trees found along Florida rivers. From the 1980s until 2014, this property was owned by the Cotee River Lions Club. They held a popular monthly pancake breakfast fundraiser in the large pavilion along the river. We purchased this 4.9 acres of land in late 2019. It is now where we live and have a woodworking shop. It has been a magical place for us, with no shortage of wildlife, rich jungle forest, a lazy winding narrow river, and even the occasion river otter sighting. We are grateful to all the humans who have occupied this place over the centuries before us for keeping it as nature intended it. It is our intention to do our part to conserve and protect its natural beauty as long as possible. We hope you find it to be as restful and rejuvenating as we do.

Safe site.
We kept our camper there for a week while on a cruise and nothing was tampered with. Very happy.

The property and hosts are lovely, and camping here was a good affordable option for me to explore the Tampa area. There's probably no way around this for camping near a city, but the noise from the road next to the property was a bit loud.

Laura and JR were great hosts. Property was as described and even nicer than I expected. The actual campsite is in a large field backed up against some trees. The bonus is the wooden pathway that leads to a pair of nice pavilions surrounded by nature and the Cotee river, my kids loved going on nature walks around the property. Bathrooms are clean and adequate. Hosts have wood available on site and each site is equipped with a fire pit. They're not the type with the grate, so if you plan on doing open fire cooking, you may need to bring your own. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Although we do a fair bit of camping, this is my first experience with Hipcamp and it was a good one.

Laura and JR are incredible hosts and they have an amazing property. My favorite part was the boardwalk over looking the river, such a peaceful space they have set up. Will definitely be back!
