Phipps Park Campground - Stuart, FL

RV sites overlooking the locks

This is a nice park that sits along the Okeechobee waterway. When we arrived, it was later in the day and it didn't appear that anyone was working the office. There is an automated gate that was open - but we also had been emailed a gate code in case we arrived after 7:30pm.

The campground was quiet with only a hand full of campers on site - out of 24 sites that had electric service. Roads are primitive and there were some large puddles due to recent rainfall. We only had to steer around one large puddle that was directly in front of our site.

Power ( 5 out of 5)

Excellent power. We didn't have to use our Hughes Autoformer at all during the trip.

Water ( 5 out of 5)

Water is at each site and we had good water pressure.

Dumping (3 out of 5)

There is a dump station located on site. The sewer connection itself is covered by a metal box, which keeps rainwater out of the system. We didn't have any issue dumping our tanks after our visit.

Experience ( 3 out of 5)

The sites were peaceful since the park was not very full.

Being close to the water gives you a pretty view, but the bugs were intolerable. Similar locations in Florida weren't as bad.

The bathhouse is a standard local park type facility. Nothing fancy - but gets the job done.

What really makes this park unique are the trails. There are numerous bridges and water features that make this park interesting. Our dogs enjoyed exploring the grounds.
