Flamingo Jen and Joe have lived at Casa Flamingo since 2004 (or, as we like to call it in Tampa, "The Summer of the Three Hurricanes"). The campsite existed unofficially for a relative who kept asking Flamingo Joe to install water and electric at her favorite parking spot along the inlet. Now that the water and electric are in, it's all legit and we're meeting people from all over!

Very convenient place to park a RV. Close to everything including Honeymoon Island 🏝 . Had a great time on New Years Eve. Hospitality is above and beyond what we imagined.

Tampa gem!
Great clear communications, friendly greeting, and a sweet little spot with power, water, and a view of a peaceful little creek. Super quiet at night. Nice clean bathroom too. Pulling into the property with the fairy lights on the treehouse was pretty memorable! Would go back in a heartbeat.

This spot is FABULOUS!
This spot is FABULOUS! It's in Tampa minutes away from tons of city stuff yet still tranquil. I have been searching for a country feel spot to park in Tampa for a long time. I found it! My dog and cat were in heaven as well. The host's dogs were friendly and welcoming to my pets. When I arrived I had a terrible head cold. The host offered homemade all from scratch chicken soup. The soup was amazing and the kindness lit a light in Tampa. I will stay here every time I'm in Tampa.

Jennifer and her families land is tucked away in a great spot!! We loved it there, everyone in the house and all the dogs were friendly and welcoming. I can’t say enough good things about it. If your looking for a chill quiet place to reset with you RV this is it!

Tropical Oasis!!
We had a great stay in our camper van at Jennifer’s Property. This spot is quiet and set back away from the main road. It has amenities like a bathroom, potable drinking water and power hookups. Upon arrival, Jennifer greeted us and made sure we were all set for the evening. Would recommend this property to anyone staying in the Tampa area! ☺️

An Oasis in Suburbia
Jennifer’s Flamingo Pad was such an incredible stay. It is a hidden Oasis in the middle of suburbia. I stayed next to the creek and had amazing views out of every window. The electric hookup was such a great bonus.. Jennifer is very friendly and helpful. The night was quiet and I had a great night sleep there. Two things to note: 1. The driveway entrance is a gravel and packed sand entrance that can easily missed. I speak from experience. The entrance is immediately after the housing complex entrance as you make the right turn. 2. The circle driveway felt a little tight to turn around in. I have a 33’ travel trailer being towed by a shortbed F-150. Just be aware of this if you have a rig my size or larger. I will definitely look to stay again if I am in the area!!

Tucked Away Oasis
We were so excited about this place that we extended even before we arrived, and it certainly lived up to its hype! Flamingo Pad is tucked away in its own oasis. The pad backs up to a small lagoon and comes with its own treehouse and fire pit lounging area. There was yard space to play with our dogs, and every person we met on the property was friendly and pleasant. Jen was especially nice and was so hospitable during our entire stay. Also, I must mention the water: it was so clean and soft! Finally, the location is great. We split our time between downtown Tampa, the airport, St. Pete and Dunedin, for which this stay is exactly at the center. 10/10 and hope to come back!

Treehouse is a must!
The star of the show here is definitely the treehouse platform. I don’t know that I’ll get to sleep in the trees in my tent like that anywhere else. Jennifer our host was gracious in bailing us out of a little propane snafu when we brought the wrong adapter, saving our ability to cook our meals. Bathrooms were clean. It was nice having an escape within 30 minutes of home, but being in that urban setting also provided a bit of noise. You’re adjacent to a small subdivision, so weekend warrior/ lawn work sounds were audible and somewhere nearby must be a venue with live music on weekend nights because both nights of our stay we could clearly hear the band and their cheering crowd. There was a good bit of movement in and out of the driveway by hosts but I believe they did their best to be unobtrusive. To be fair, I believe most of flamingos guests have campers which would likely make these sounds a nonissue but if you’re tent camping these aren’t a complete deal breaker unless you turn in before 11 in which case bring earplugs. If you’re looking for quiet, tranquil, seclusion this may not be your cup of tea. I would still recommend it on account of the unique treehouse and very accommodating hosts.

A unique camping spot.
Flamingo Pad is a unique spot to camp. There is an elevated platform, like a treehouse, to sit upon, a creek to fish and a quiet spot to get a good night's sleep. The host is very pleasant and accommodating.

Exactly as promised
Everything was as described- peaceful and easy to hook up to power and water. The owners dogs came to say hello and they are both lovely. I’d stay again thanks

Everything you could ask for
Throughly enjoyed my stay at The Flamingo Pad in my Squaredrop Camper with my doggo. It was a nice quiet place to unwind from everyday life and enjoy some R&R. Everything was just as expected and the host Jennifer was very friendly and reachable if I had any questions. I’ll definitely be staying here again probably sooner then later.

The family is absolutely lovely, came out to greet us and make sure we were settling in well. The property is incredible, hookups are great and all work well. It is nicely tucked away in the Oldsmar area for a quiet evening, while also a great location to get anywhere in Tampa, Clearwater, and further north!! Would definitely stay again.

Jennifer has such a beautiful spot. She came out to greet us when we arrived later in the evening with her dogs, who were very sweet! Lovely pond and landscaping. Very relaxing, quiet night sleep close enough to the coast to get to Honeymoon Beach early enough in the morning to get a good parking space! Would love to stay again if the need arose! Old Florida feel, reminded me of the Keys!

We had a very nice stay at Jennifer and Joe’s place. They were so accommodating which made us feel welcome. We asked wether we could do a BBQ on the fire pit and they bought a grill to put on top, so we could enjoy a BBQ. We would surely recommend!

Can’t wait to get back here!!
Flamingo Pad is as exactly advertised! Beautiful little secluded site, with a raised deck and fire pit. Host Jennifer is super nice. I won’t repeat all the praise that has been given to Flamingo Pad, but add my own by saying this peaceful gem is located in an area full of restaurants of all types as well as attractions in every direction from here.

Peaceful property on a creek.
The Flamingo Pad is a fantastic Hipcamp. It's a peaceful and secluded campsite right in the city. The spot sits next to a creek where you can spot wildlife and listen to birds. The fire pit is awesome. The dogs are sweet. Jennifer is a great host. It is really nice having clean bathrooms and electricity. Highly recommend this spot!
