Camping at the Canoe Outpost is a great way to enjoy the event and the river. Rent a canoe or kayak and go paddling, tube, swim, fish or just hang out and relax, maybe play a little music. We have a public bath house, water and electric at all reserved sites and an RV dump station for use after the event. We sell firewood and ice, snacks and drinks, all at good prices too. For you larger needs, chain stores and restaurants are just 3 miles away. So come for the event or stay the weekend, you're sure to have a good time.
Reservations are strongly recommended as we are a small facility and we expect to fill up fast. If any sites of any type remain after Thursday 11/21, they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. So look over the event map, the site descriptions and lodging options and call the outpost for a reservation today. All camping and lodging must be prepaid at time of reservation and is non-refundable just like the concert tickets are. The event will go on rain or shine. Even free primitive tent campers for Saturday night should call to be put on the list so we don't get over crowded.
Call 813-634-2228 for reservations for any camping or lodging.
Free primitive tent camping for Saturday night only is on a first come, first served basis. Camp in designated areas only - check in starts Saturday at 8:00 AM – you may drive in to drop off gear near your camp area but you will have to park on Hwy 301 with the other concert goers - no picnic tables - SMALL ground fires are allowed unless you are camping on a lawn area - public restrooms for showers/bath/water. Be sure to call ahead to be put on the primitive camping list for Saturday only. We recommend you arrive as early as possible as we get congested as the day goes on.
Primitive tent camping for Friday is $20 per tent. You may reserve a spot for Friday night, arrive to set up anytime Friday, and keep the same spot for Saturday free. This assures that you get a spot, the same spot, for Saturday too. Spots are allocated on a first come first serve basis – no specific spots are reserved so as to allocate space more efficiently. You may drive in to drop off gear near your camp area but you will have to park on Hwy 301 with the other concert goers - no picnic tables - SMALL ground fires are allowed unless you are camping on a lawn area - public restrooms for showers/bath/water. Be sure to call for reservations.
Electric and water sites vary in size and contour with some suitable for RV's and others more suited for tents. All are $24 per night with a 2 night minimum (Fri & Sat or Sat &Sun). Please see the site descriptions below and then call to check availability and for a reservation. Arrive anytime Friday or early Saturday to avoid the congestion that will increase as the event time nears. This is especially true if you are in a RV to allow for maneuvering room.

Call if you have specific questions about these unorthodox sites. The features of these sites are listed below individually. These sites are $24 per night with a 2 night minimum.
Carport sites: Located in a 25’ long x 36’ wide carport with a high metal roof. It is sectioned into 3 stall with posts between each stall. It has a 12’ height clearance in the middle of each stall but entry to the stall is restricted to about 9’ high by a cross beam at the entrance. Due to this, most hard sided trailers and RV’s will not fit but pop up campers and tents will do fine. It has a cypress mulch ground cover. There are 2 20 amp electrical circuits that may be shared between the 3 stalls. Parking for 1 vehicle is allowed on the property but not right at the site.
