My husband and I were looking for a place to camp by the Peace River and hunt for sharks teeth the next morning. We pulled into the Peace River campground thinking it might be nice. If you enjoy ridiculous prices, drinking, ATVs running right by your tent, noisy neighbors, and absolutely no natural beauty, then this is the perfect place for you! We were shocked that they intended to charge us $30/night for a PRIMITIVE campsite. Access to running water was quite a distance from the campsite and only port-a-potties for restrooms. They also informed us that they were the only place to camp in the area and the nearest campground was in Naples... at least 60 miles away. THIS WAS A LIE!!! We high-tailed it out of there. After stopping at the nearby canoe outpost, we learned that you can camp for only $10/night right on the river at a local county park. We decided to park our vehicle at the park and kayak to a campsite along the river. It was beautiful, serene, and isolated... 100x better than anything the Peace River Campground offered.
